Trisong Detsen :

A set of thirteen B/W notecards drawn by Robert Beer that depict some important lineage masters from the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist traditions. These notecards come with envelopes, and are machine creased so they can be coloured with fine-line pens, crayons or paint before folding. Each card has a short biography of the lineage holder or guru depicted.

Trisong Detsen was the second of the three great Tibetan religious kings who patronized the establishment of Buddhism in Tibet. At his invitation many scholars and yogins traveled to Tibet, the most famous ones being Shantarakshita, Padmasambhava, and Vimalamitra. During his reign the first Buddhist Monastery was built at Samye in Central Tibet.
