Texts translated into English by David Teasdale
- Three Reasons for Confidence: A Work Telling the Life and Liberation Story of the Great Master Padmākara by Tāranātha
Tāranātha composed this biography of Padmasambhava in 1610. It is unique insofar as it does not follow the version of the life-story recounted in numerous terma texts. Instead, it follows the historical perspective of the Testimony of Ba, as well as several Nyingma tantras and their commentaries.
