Guru Orgyan Dorje ChangGuru U-rgyan rDo-rje ‘chang

First Manifestation of Padmasambhava {E}

As Guru U’rgyan rDo’rje ‘chang, Padmasambhava is an expression of the Dharmakaya, the essence of all the Tathagatas.  The Dharmakaya is the source of the purest teachings of the Buddha, which were transmitted by Vajrasattva to the Great Bodhisattva Vajrapani, and from Vajrapani to human Vidyadharas.  In the Padma Thang-yig, the Great Guru, manifesting as rDo-rje ‘chang, heard the Mahayoga teachings directly from Vajrasattva:

“Now, in the pure depth of the heavens, Vajrasattva, allowing the Metamorphic Body to be seen, seated upon an elephant, holding a golden vajra to his heart with his right hand, and with his left hand holding a silver bell at his side, crowned with the ornaments of the Five Transcendent Buddhas, his body covered with all the perfect ornaments, decorated with bones at the shoulders, at the wrists, and at the ankles, brilliant with the white glitter of crystal.

“Perfectly learned in the Mahayoga, Vajrasattva reveals as a dwelling the celestial palace of the three Baskets, reveals as gods and goddesses the whole internal essence, reveals as Mantra the entire murmur of the words, reveals as enchantments everything which is of body, speech, and mind.

Padmasambhava’s Namtar (Hagiography)

And he sets forth the Tantras of the Mahayoga, which are, according to the whole classification, five hundred thousand, and the whole of which forms the eighteen root Tantras.

“For contemplation, Padma saw the truths blended into one.
For meditation, he practiced the three methods of samadhi.
For activity he realized completion through the ritual objects.
As fruit he obtained the ninth stage,
and as secret name he was called sNgag-‘dzin rDo-rje ‘chang.”
