Dorje Drolö, according to the Dudjom Tersar lineage

Düddul Wangdrak Dorje Drolö (Wyl.bdud 'dul dbang drag rdo rje gro lod kyi las byang / dngos drub 'dod 'jo zhes bya ba bzhugs so) ‘The Wish-Fulfilling Siddhis, A Sadhana Practice of Dorje Drolö Who Subdues Maras Through Powerful Wrath’, is a Dorje Drolö sadhana revealed by Dudjom Rinpoche.

Purpose

Bhakha Tulku Rinpoche, a main Dudjom Tersar lineage holder and direct student of Dudjom Rinpoche, imparted the following advice about the Dudjom Traktung Pema Sokdrub which also applies for this Dorje Drolö terma: [1]

The wrathful practice of Dorje Drolö is critically important in pacifying all the negative circumstances that we face in today's world. Since the whole spectrum of Buddhadharma teachings and its essence is love, compassion, and wisdom, this wrathful practice is not just the expression of some sort of ordinary rage; rather, it is the pinnacle practice of compassion and wisdom underlying the practice of Buddhadharma at its most profound level.

Content

The Düddul Wangdrak Dorje Drolö cycle encompasses many practices such as:

  • The very short (daily) Gyünkhyer Chok Deb Nangsé Létsen Dön Nyi [2] (Wyl. rgyun khyer phyogs bsdebs nang gses le tshan don gnyis).

  • A Manual of instructions for Lejang and other activity, including music and instruments Drolö Kyi Zindri(Wyl. gro lod kyi zin bris)

Revelation and Propagation of the Terma

Dudjom Rinpoche wrote in the colophon of this practice[5]:

This sadhana practice of Dorje Drolö who subdues maras through powerful wrath is called “The Wish-Fulfilling Siddhi”. It came about to fulfil the wishes of Tsewang Rigzin Nampar Gyalwa Dey, the main lineage holder of this teaching, an accomplished and glorious noble one. Replete with all supplementary components for other similar practices, it is also a daily practice in terms of its easy application. I, Jigdral Yeshe Dorje, a practitioner of knowledge mantras of this supreme deity, compiled this in the ninth month of the wood monkey year during the excellent time of the waxing phase of the moon while staying with an aristocratic family in Samdrup Palace in their highest room called “The Immeasurably Pure Mansion of Swirling Lotuses" (Padma Khyil-wai Zhal-med Khang).
