In his early life he destroyed many people but later, once converted by the Dharma, he accepted a very difficult practice to purify himself of his evil karma. After a long period Marpa (his Dharma Teacher) granted him Tantric initiation; he became master of 'tummo' (psychic integration). Known for his spontaneous & inspirational songs of teaching which continue to be sung throughout Tibet today. - gold burnish (18k) over copper. He lived circa 1100 AD.
