Guru Rinpochen (Padmasambhava) is considered the founder of Buddhism in Tibet at the time of King Thrisong Detsen (756 to 796) in Tibet. He subdued the spirits and demons of the snow land who opposed Buddhism through tantric powers and bound many of them to the Buddha's teachings as Dharma protectors. Because of his special abilities, he was instrumental in establishing the first Buddhist monastery, Samye, in Tibet. With the establishment of this monastery (in 769 or 775) by the Tibetan king Thrisong Detsen (759-797), the first wave of translations of Buddhist scriptures from India to Tibet began.
