The Lord of the Dance in the Chime Phakme Nyingtik

In the Chime Phakme Nyingtik, the Lord of the Dance is the male consort of White Tara Wishfulfilling Wheel. Wish-fulfilling Wheel's consort is sometimes said to be the long-life deity Amitayus, sometimes Avalokiteshvara whose name he bears. Amitayus is the dharmakaya of the Lotus family, and Avalokiteshvara the sambhogakaya of the Lotus family, so they are not different.
