Drukpa Kunley (1455 – 1529) – “The Divine Madman of the Dragon Lineage” was a great master of Mahamudra in the Buddhist tradition. He is known for his sex rituals and crazy of enlightening of women. Because of this he is also known as “The Saint of 5,000 Women”. After riding nearly every wife, sister and daughter in the land, Kunley eventually rode into Buddhist mythology itself. He is said to do battle with all sorts of demons and evil spirits, most of them female. In one Bhutanese legend, he defeats a demons by beating her in the face with his penis, and then gags her with it. After she is defeated, he transforms her into a good spirit “through divine sexual play.” Crazy story. But since then the people of Bhutan, the last Buddhism Kingdom in the world, worship his penis and paint it inside and outside their homes.
