The dance of the Eight Manifestations is the most intense moment of the festival of sacred dance at the Tibetan monastery of Shechen in Nepal. Close to two hundred monks participate in the dance, in front of a spellbound, devoted audience. Padmasambhava, accompanied by King Trisong Detsen, Abbot Shantarakshita, and his two principal companions the queen of Tibet Yeshe Tsogyal and the Indian princess Mandarava, and followed by the Eight Manifestations and a vast procession—all emerge from the temple and take their places on a throne that has been erected in the middle of the courtyard beneath a parasol of multicolored silks. 2010.
