Thang Tong Gyalpo and miracles?

Postby kirtu » Sun Apr 07, 2013 2:50 pm

As a young man Thang Tong Gyalpo was reputed to perform miracles to make some of his points (and was apparently asked to stop doing so). How did he develop these siddhis? He could apparently perform miracles at will. Does the Stearns biography/hagiography or other source mention specifically how Thang Tong Gyalpo developed this ability?
