Losar Tashi Delek!

It is a Fire Monkey year, which is special in the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition, as Padmasambhava (aka Guru Rinpoche) was born on a Fire Monkey year. Padmasambhava is an eighth century Tibetan hero. He is known to have founded the first Buddhist monastery in Tibetan, though other other historically verifiable details of his life are scarce. He is especially honored in the Nyingma tradition, as one of their founders.
