It is the main lama practice in the Dudjom Tersar lineage, and one of the four main terma cycles of Dudjom Rinpoche[1].


The Tsokye Tuktik is a lama practice focused on Guru Rinpoche. The outer form of the lama is Orgyen Menla Dütsi Bum Zang, the inner form is Lama Orgyen Khandro Norlha, the secret form is Tsokye Tuktik (Lake-Born Vajra) and the innermost form is Dorje Drolö.

Revelation of the Terma

The practice was revealed by Dudjom Rinpoche in 1929, while he was still in Tibet. According to him, “the Tsokyi Tuktik is the father cycle connected to the Khandro Tuktik mother cycle”[2].

About the Tsokye Tuktik, Dudjom Rinpoche said “For the fortunately connected students, I released the secret seal of the casket spontaneously arisen from the space of awareness”.
