Date problems

Postby Daniel Arraes » Mon Dec 19, 2011 6:24 pm

How come some sources state Kamalashila lived between 713 and 763 c.e., whereas the Samye debate took place supposedly arround 794 c.e?
Is there any hypothesis like there being two kamalashilas?

Well this topic isn't about what I thought it would be. :rolling:
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

Tibetans were very fuzzy about dates, and imperial dates used to be considered 60 years earlier than we think of them now.
