One of the main purposes of this study is to inquire into a range of aspects of Longchenpa's life. 49 Throughout his life Longchenpa had interactions with other great political and religious figures , and experienced in person the critical events which characterized his region during the 14th century. In this period the relationship between the Sakya (Saskya pa) hierarchs and the Mongols as their protectors formed into a hegemony that dominated Tibet from the 14th centuries 13th to early and which successfully protected Tibet from a final destructive Mongol invasion.
In this sense , telling and referring to stories concerning origins and genealogies became a religious act l50 aimed at maintaining the social and worldly order. With regard to Ati sa , Kapstein 1 5 1 observes that he contributed to a process that was already in motion and his activities of teaching and translation of Buddhist texts and commentaries into Tibetan were widely accepted because by that time the Tibetan ground was already fertile and ready for his teachings. That is to say , Atisa was a key catalyst in its development.
88 The Man From Samye 26 Padmasambhava perceived himself as an enlightened being who possessed the sacred Buddha nature and who would not subordinate himself to a secular mundane king. 89 It is said that thereafter Padmasambhava remained in Tibet , taking a major active role in the establishment of Buddhism in Tibet. 90 This shift from "historical facts" to hagiographical ones , from the mundane to the sacred , represents a later patron-priest type of hierarchy of power and importance written backwards into history - more precisely , into the time of Samye ' s construction - in which the religious is emphasized as the driving force behind the secular.
