In Padmasambhava’s life, the ultimate good news is that the spiritual journey need never have been made. The journey has already been completed; therefore there’s no point in searching or trying to gain further insights. The needlessness of making the spiritual journey is the good news. That is the lion’s roar here. This is something much more than what the mahayana sutras talk about. It goes further in that the ultimate good news is independent of any victory. It is ultimate.
What is Padmasambhava’s style of manifesting crazy wisdom in this context? He is the universal monarch who looks down over the yanas of the teachings rather than looking up to them.
