Yeshe Yang d.862
Name Variants: Atsar Yeshe Yang; Ba Yeshe Yang; Yeshe Wangpo
Yeshe Yang (ye shes dbyangs) was a lay disciple of Padmasambhava, counted among the twenty-five disciples (rje 'bangs nyer lnga). He is credited with transcribing many of Padmasambhava’s treasures, and concealing many of them himself, thus earning his name Ba (sba; conceal) Yeshe Yang. He is said to have received the knowledge of the secret script directly from the ḍākinīs, having traveled to their realm in a state of meditation.
He lived for a number of years at forested mountainsides with Sokpo Lhapel (sog po lha dpal), when, it is said, one day he flew into the sky and disappeared.
