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. Dharmapa was a student of Dudjom Lingpa who in 1871 requested him to write a sadhana of Tröma Nakmo.

In his biography, Dudjom Lingpa recounts: '[In 1872], compelled by joy, my student Tsé-chu, Tenth Day, asked me for something to practice. When I transcribed a text for him, a rainbow stretched out like five silk ribbons sone above my house, a portent of his impeding liberation in the illusory rainbow body. At the end of his life in Lhasa, when he passed away, exceptional canopies of rainbow light and other signs and indications appeared. Everyone in Central and Western Tibet was amazed. During the middle winter month [of 1872] I practiced Dakini Tröma Nakmo during a month-long retreat. On that occasion I was accompanied by my supreme disciples Tsé-chu, Pema Tashi, and Orgyen. 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.' (Dudjom Lingpa, ‘A Clear Mirror’, The Visionary Autobiography of a Tibetan Master’, The Outer Autobiography, translated by Chönyi Drolma, Rangjung Yeshe Publications, 2011, p.133).
