Mahasiddha NaropaIndian Mahasiddha, India, 1012 - 1100.  The Indian Buddhist Tantric master Naropa is the archetype of a Mahasiddha. First, a renowned scholar at the famous Monastic University of Nalanda, he leaves his position after his first encounter with Vajrayogini (in the form of an old woman - cf. No. 2) and starts a life od a wandering yogi. He seeks out Tilopa who introduces him to Tantric practices subjecting him to all kinds of severe test. Naropa emerges from those years with Tilopa as a fully realized Mahasiddha who becomes the teacher of Marpa, the translator.
