Teaching from Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche on Padmasambhava:
"When the King of Uddiyana found the Lotus-Born in the middle of Dhanakosha Lake, he asked these questions of Padmasambhava:
"Wondrous youthful Son of the Lotus, who is your father? Who is your mother?" and, "To which country do you belong?" Because they were on the Indian continent, he asked, "To which caste do you belong?" Since Padmasambhava manifested in the form of an eight-year old, the king also asked the question, "What food have you been eating?"
Padmasambhava answered, "My father is the wisdom of awareness, and my mother is Samantabhadri, which is the union of bliss and emptiness." He then said, "The country of my citizenship is the unborn dharmadhatu. I belong to the caste of inseparable space and awareness, and the food that sustains me is the food of duality."
Another translation from "The Lotus Born - The Life Story of Padmasambhava":
"Little boy child, who is your father and who is your mother?
What is your case and what what is your country?
What food do you live on and what is your purpose here?
In reply to these questions the boy said:
My father is the wisdom of spontaneous awareness,
My mother is the Ever-Excellent Lady, the space of all things.
I belong to the caste of indivisible space and awareness.
I have taken the unborn dharmadhatu as my homeland.
I sustain myself by consuming the concepts of duality.
My purpose is the act of killing disturbing emotions."
"My father is the intrinsic awareness, Samantabhadra. My mother is the ultimate sphere of reality, Samantrabhadri. I belong to the caste of non-duality of the sphere of awareness. My name is the Glorious Lotus Born. I am from the unborn sphere of all phenomena. I consume concepts of duality as my diet. I act in the way of the Buddhas of the three times."
"My father is the pure awareness of rigpa, Samantabhadra,
My mother, the space of all things, Samantabhadri,
My line, the indivisibility of awareness and space,
My name, the glorious Lotus Born,
My homeland, the unborn dharmadhatu,
My sustenance, consuming dualistic thoughts,
My destiny, to accomplish the actions of the buddhas of past, present and future."
Perhaps this becomes a little bit more clear.
