High Tea sounds a bit posh. Padmasambhava is not a bit posh. The myths and legends surrounding Padmasambhava are wonderfully weird. They start in the primordial past and move into the future. The stories are set amidst a great mythic struggle that's always going on between wisdom and compassion, and the demonic forces of tyranny, anarchy, chaos and destruction. The thing is, Padmasambhava doesn't destroy these demonic forces: he transforms them. He somehow turns all that energy into a positive and creative force. We, too, can do that in the midst of the chaos of this world.
