Notes

  1. Akyabza Kalzang Drönma was the third consort of Dudjom Lingpa and the mother of Tulku Dorje Dradül, Tulku Lhatop and of Patrul Namkha Jikmé.
  2. Chö-nyön Drakpa was a student of Dudjom Lingpa who requested a Chö practice to be revealed. According to Dudjom Lingpa’s outer biography: ‘Around 1862, in the last autumn month, someone called Chö-nyön Drakpa, Renowed Madman Severance Practitioner, offered me a drum, a hand drum, a thighbone trumpet, and a pair of volume of Jikmé Lingpa ’s Longchen Nyingtik, ‘Heart Essence of the Vast Expanse’. He asked, Transcribe a text from the Zabsang Khandro Nyingtik, The Profound Doctrine of the heart Essence of the Dakinis, and I will do that practice. That night, a bright blue woman saying she was Dakini Ngadré Gyalmo, Drumbeat Queen, approached me. I asked her, What is this Chön-nyön Drakpa like? Of what quality is he? She answered: Hé! Hé! That holy hidden adept is an incarnation of te great Sakya Kunga Gyaltsen, Ever-Joyful Victory Banner of the Sakyas, and the hidden adept Kong-nyön, Madman from Kongpo. In order to purify his remaining obscurations, he’s taken on a body like this for now. The auspicious connections of his meeting with your [[terma]s are that he’s given you this drum and bell. A portent [that your treasure teachings] will be as acclaimed as the profound Nyingtik, ‘Heart Essence’ teachings; As an indication of Chö practice, he’s given you this hand drum; These are signs that your name will be renowned. Excellent omen like these are so rare! (Dudjom Lingpa, ‘A Clear Mirror’, The Visionary Autobiography of a Tibetan Master’, The Outer Autobiography, translated by Chönyi Drolma, Rangjung Yeshe Publications, 2011, page 86).
  3. Dampa is a direct disciple of Dudjom Lingpa who recounts in his outer biography that In 1891, on the twenty-first day of the first month, my disciple Dampa passed away This passing was foretold to Dudjom Lingpa by Dakini Sangwa Yeshe, Secret Wisdom, who told him in 1890 Your disciple Dampa will be born in the dakini country of Orgyen on the twenty-first night of the Rabbit Month (Dudjom Lingpa, ‘A Clear Mirror’, The Visionary Autobiography of a Tibetan Master’, The Outer Autobiography, translated by Chönyi Drolma, Rangjung Yeshe Publications, 2011, p174).
  4. Dönsem was a student of Dudjom Lingpa whose future accomplishment were revealed by the Dakini Kuntu Gyuma to Dudjom Lingpa in 1882. In his autobiography, Dudjom Lingpa recounts: [In 1882], on the tenth day of the middle winter month, a woman appears saying she was Dakini Kuntu Gyuma Saljéma, Wandering All-Illuminator, and sang to me, ‘A sublime individual named Dönsem, Meaningful Intention, is the destined inheritor of the unobstructed wisdom mind of Great Perfection. He should stay in unfixed mountain retreats. If he isn’t deceived by demons onto the wrong path, he will manifest enlightenment in the supreme rainbow body.(Traktung Dudjom Lingpa, ‘A Clear Mirror’, The Visionary Autobiography of a Tibetan Master’, The Outer Autobiography, translated by Chönyi Drolma, Rangjung Yeshe Publications, 2011, page 158).
  5. Dorje Zangpo was a student of Dudjom lingpa. In his biography, Dudjom Lingpa recounts when he met him: “In the year I turned thirty-nine, at night on the ninth day of the middle summer month, a dakini appeared saying, “Here is something you need.” She gave me an extremely beautiful and fascinating iron ritual dagger wrapped in black silk; attached to the silk was an unsightly stone ritual dagger. “My child, I’m giving this to you. As a sign that this has come through the hands of a foolish lama, it has a black silk wrapping. The stone dagger connected to it will be of scant help to anyone else: It will likely accomplish its own purpose.” Early the next morning on the tenth day, Dorjé Zangpo, Excellent Vajra, from Chutsang and a sculptor name Dorjé, Vajra, arrived together. We offered a vajra feast celebration. That night a dakini appeared telling me, “This Dorje Zangpo is an emanation of Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal, therefore reveal to him the innermost pith of your profound teachings. There is a grave danger that his mind will be altered by a corrupt scriptural oral transmission: If that change doesn’t occur and if he listens to your advice, he will have countless disciples and establish then on the path to freedom. At the end of his life, he will attain liberation in the light-mass rainbow body.” I asked, “”Dakini who knows all, if his mind is altered by another’s corrupt teachings and transmissions, what will become of him?” “He will become like a garuda plummeting into a poison lake: His life will be short and throughout this lifetime, he won’t be helpful to others. As for Dorjé, his companion, he won’t be of service to others, but he will accomplish his own purpose [by attaining realization]. They must both stay in mountain hermitages, wandering to unfixed locales. This is of utmost importance!” Then she vanished without a trace.(Dudjom Lingpa, ‘A Clear Mirror’, The Visionary Autobiography of a Tibetan Master’, The Outer Autobiography, translated by Chönyi Drolma, Rangjung Yeshe Publications, 2011, page 134-135.)

As a sign that this has come through the hands of a foolish lama, it has a black silk wrapping.

We offered a vajra feast celebration. [...] The diking said: 'As for Dorje, his companion, he won’t be of service to others, but he will accomplish his own purpose [by attaining realization]. They must both stay in mountain hermitages, wandering to unfixed locales. This is of utmost importance!” Then she vanished without a trace.(Dudjom Lingpa, ‘A Clear Mirror’, The Visionary Autobiography of a Tibetan Master’, The Outer Autobiography, translated by Chönyi Drolma, Rangjung Yeshe Publications, 2011, page 134-135.)

Accordingly, when I began that task on the tenth day of the middle winter month, thunder roared from the heavens and small hailstones fell erratically. I considered that to be indicative of a favorable coincidence, the thought of which made me quite delighted and happy, so I told the lama about it. He said, “During the winter, isn’t the sound of thunder something disastrous?” He made this and other pessimistic comments; I saw that there wasn’t going to be much of a good connection. I ceased writing after five pages and se it aside without transcribing anything more.” Dudjom Lingpa, ‘A Clear Mirror’, The Visionary Autobiography of a Tibetan Master’, The Outer Autobiography, translated by Chönyi Drolma, Rangjung Yeshe Publications, 2011, p.134).

There was no one else apart from this trio. I cam to the firm conclusion that they upheld their tantric commitments. At that time, a rain of small feathers from vultures, the king of birds, fell; the house was infused with a sweet aromas; and others fantastic signs and omens appeared.'
