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?

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