Parth: Hello! I am praying to both guru padmasambhava and dorje shugden, but I've also read that dorje shugden is the protector of the gelugpa tradition and his main activity is to prevent the gelugpa lineage from being mixed with the others. Is it correct for me to practice guru padmasambhava and dorje shugden together ??

The Benefits of the Vajrayogini Practice
- Ascending to Kechara Paradise that we able to continue to practice Vajrayogini.

Purification of Negativities and Transformation of Destinies
- Vajrayogini, by virtue of being a tantric practice, purifies tremendous amounts of negative karma from innumerable lifetimes. As a result, her practitioners obtain peace of mind.

Good Rebirth and Being Able to Connect with Her Practice Again
- Vajrayogini’s practitioners who hold their commitments will be protected from being reborn in the lower realms.

Control and Protection
- Those who perform their Vajrayogini practice and recite her mantra well will be protected from demons, spirits, black magic, bad weather and falling into the three lower realms.
17 Nov 18, 12:30 PM
Victor.C: A4.

Having a Qualified Teacher
- Vajrayogini initiation should be received from a qualified teacher, who received Vajrayogini initiation from other qualified master(s) from an authentic lineage. The qualified teacher should also have been holding their commitments related to this initiation well. The teacher will observe the student and give the initiation when the student is ready.


Attitude and Knowledge
- Vajrayogini aspirants should act in the following manner:
- Practice integrity and fulfill your promise (words of honor)
- Execute assignments from the teacher diligently
- Contemplate on the teacher’s good qualities repeatedly
- Persevere in your practice
- Transform your mind (note: please refer to Eight Verses of Thought Transformation)
- Get along with other people and be forgiving
- Hold the current practice or sadhana given by the teacher daily consistently
- Maintain loyalty to one’s teacher and follow him / her all the way
- Maintain an attitude that is free from Eight Worldly Dharmas
- Practise non-attachment to name, fame, reputation, wealth and so forth.


Preliminary Practices
- 100,000 prostrations
- 100,000 Guru Yogas
- 100,000 water offerings
- 100,000 Vajrasattva mantra recitations

or


- Additional preliminary practices can also include offering 100,000 butter lamps, making 100,000 mandala offerings, and making / sponsoring 100,000 Buddha images.


Bodhisattva Vows
- One of the prerequisites of Vajrayogini initiation is holding the Bodhisattva vows well. Without holding these vows, no results or attainments can be expected from any Tantric practice especially with Vajrayogini.

>>> @Pastor David Lai: PAW ~ To be honest, I don't know. Each Tantric system has a 'specialty' and Vajrayogini's specialty is ease of gaining attainments and ascension to Kechara Paradise. Yamantaka's is known for purification of extremely heavy negative karma and it is the only tantra capable of purifying even the 5 heinous crimes - drawing blood from the buddha, killing a bodhisattva, killing an arhat, killing one's father and killing one's mother. Yamantaka's other specialty is the purification of the psychic channels for taking trance and more.

- Pemako, also known as the “supreme hidden land”, is said to be one of the 108 valleys hidden by Guru Rinpoche in the Himalayas. They will only be revealed at the appropriate time and can only be reached with great hardship.


Pemako is often likened to Vajrayogini body lying down:
- Kangri Kangpo (White Snow Mountain) resembles her head,
- Mount Namche Barwa and Mount Gyala Peri resemble her breasts,
- Yang Sang River in the upper Siang region of Arunachal Pradesh, resembles her lower part of her body,
- Siang and Yang Sang Rivers resemble her sacred triangle, Kila Yangzom resembles her vulva,
- Rinchenpung, a Nyingmapa Monastery, resembles her navel

- Her left eye is looking up to her heaven, Dakpo Kachö (“Kechara”), which symbolises that for those who practice her Tantra and the Three Principal Paths free from the eight worldly Dharmas, Vajrayogini will lead them to Kechara paradise. Her practitioners will either be reborn in her actual paradise where they can receive teachings from her, Heruka, Dakinis or the Mahasiddhas who live in that paradise directly, or they will always be reborn in the place where they will meet qualified masters and receive her practice again. Therefore, by doing her practice, the amount of merits created and the amount of negative karma purified would help her practitioners to be reborn in beautiful positive places.
- Her right eye is looking down at sentient beings, which symbolises that although she has lifted herself from samsara, she still abides within samsara’s borders to help. By looking down at sentient beings, she manifests her love and compassion through her sadhana, yogas, and the lineage masters who propagate her teachings.
- The third eye represents the opening to her central channel that is cleared. It is an indication of Vajrayogini’s omniscient qualities.

- Vajrayogini has a blissful facial expression because she does not have to experience emotional afflictions and the results of negative karma like other beings in samsara.
-Her facial expression is also slightly wrathful because she absorbs our anger. Her iconography represents the Three Principal Aspects of the Paths (i.e., Renunciation, Bodhicitta and Emptiness) that are very important for success in one’s Buddhist practice, especially Tantric practice.
- The blissful facial expression means that Vajrayogini does not have to experience the sufferings of beings in samsara.
- The wrathful facial expression represents that Vajrayogini is absorbing our anger, and she is unhappy to witness our sufferings and the result of our negative karma.

17 Nov 18, 12:11 PM
Valentina_moderator: 6. Please mention three ways we can develop connection with Vajrayogini prior to receiving initiation

Answer:

Invite and Decorate Her Image

When a practitioner invites the image of Vajrayogini, whether it is in a statue, thangka, photograph or tsa tsa, they should not treat it as just another ordinary object, but as a holy object and a representation of the Buddha’s body. Mantras and/or other holy objects can be inserted into the statue, and the practitioner can have the pujas / tsog performed to consecrate the Vajrayogini image and the holy items inside. The purpose of having these pujas performed is to invite her to abide within this body representation.

Setting Up Her Altar

Those who aspire to practise and receive Vajrayogini initiation should set up a nice altar for Vajrayogini under their budget. The altar should be maintained and be clean. A basic altar should have at least a representation of the Buddha’s body (i.e., a statue, tsa tsa, photograph or thangka) at the centre, a representation of the Buddha’s speech (i.e., a Dharma text) to the right of the image and a representation of the Buddha’s mind (i.e., stupa).

Besides these three, practitioners can add whatever offerings that please the senses if they are offered sincerely and obtained through the correct means (e.g., not the result of stealing, killing, etc.).

Daily Tea Offering

For those who have not received initiation, you can start to develop a connection with Vajrayogini by making tea offerings to her.

17 Nov 18, 12:09 PM
Valentina_moderator: Thank you for the information Pastor David. I find it amazing that enlightened being like Vajrayogini gives us many opportunities to create merits so we can continue with our Dharma practice and achieve our goal. - Pastor David Lai:Cbox Image Did you guys know that among Vajrayogini rituals, there is a ritual called Ruchok. This ritual is used to consecrate hair, nails and the bodily remains of the living and deceased. Once consecrate, these items would be 'generated' sacred relics of Vajrayogini by ritual that is worthy to be placed in stupas and Buddha statues. Without consecration, we cannot do that because that would incur negative karma for these people as we are not attained or worthy to be worshipped. Once these 'generated' relics are placed inside stupas and statues, the people who gave these items would generate tremendous merits continuously as long as the stupa and statue exists.
17 Nov 18, 12:09 PM
Wan Wai Meng: 5. Please mention the three benefits of Vajrayogini practice with a brief explanation

5.1 Create the causes to ascend her paradise, once we reach her paradise it is a halfway house for us to develop swiftly until enlightenment. We can ascend to her paradise within 7 or 14 lifetimes, depending on which lineage of Vajrayogini we receive.

5.2 We create much purification that will affect our future destinies. The practice of Vajrayogini helps us to purify much karma, with the amount of karma purified, we will create much causes to be successful in future lives.

5.3 Good rebirths, once we receive her practice and hold the commitments, if we do not ascend her paradise immediately, we will still be born again around teachers, lineage to carry on her practice again.

Mantras and / or other holy objects can be inserted into the statue, and the practitioner can have the pujas / tsog performed to consecrate the Vajrayogini image and the holy items inside. can also offer ornaments in the form of precious stones and jewels, as an offering to Vajrayogini’s holy image. 2) Setting Up Her Altar Can set up a nice altar for Vajrayogini in accordance with their budget. The altar should be maintained and clean at all times. A basic altar should have at least a representation of the Buddha’s body (i.e., a statue, tsa tsa, photograph or thangka) at the centre, a representation of the Buddha’s speech (i.e., a Dharma text) to the right of the image and a representation of the Buddha’s mind (i.e., stupa). 3) Daily Tea Offering Can start to develop a connection with Vajrayogini by making tea offerings to her.

17 Nov 18, 11:59 AM
Valentina_moderator: Answer to question no. 5 part 2

Good Rebirth and Being Able to Connect with Her Practice Again

Vajrayogini’s practitioners who hold their commitments will be protected from being reborn in the lower realms. Even if the practitioner cannot complete the practice of dissolving their winds during death, Vajrayogini will still meet and help the practitioners even in the bardo (intermediate state between life and death).

In addition, her practitioners will experience conducive conditions to meet, be attracted to and practise Vajrayogini again in subsequent lifetimes.

Control and Protection

Those who perform their Vajrayogini practice and recite her mantra well will be protected from demons, spirits, black magic, bad weather and falling into the three lower realms. According to Lama Yeshe, Vajrayogini mantra is the ‘King of Mantras’ and will help the practitioners to gain siddhis (realisations). One can gain realisations just through the recitation of the mantra with no visualisation, when we have kept our commitments.

Valentina_moderator: 5. Please mention the three benefits of Vajrayogini practice with a brief explanation

Part 1

Benefits of Vajrayogini practice

Ascending to Kechara Paradise

While appearing in a pure vision, Vajrayogini told Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche that if anyone received her practice within four generations after Pabongka Rinpoche, they could ascend to Kechara Paradise within seven lifetimes. Subsequent generations could only ascend to Kechara Paradise within 14 lifetimes. In Kechara Paradise, these practitioners could receive teachings directly from Vajrayogini, Heruka and the Mahasiddhas who reside in that paradise.

The promise to be connected to Vajrayogini beyond this lifetime is possible because she is classified as a karma deity. She, therefore, follows her practitioners from one lifetime to another. In this manner, we can continue our practice of Vajrayogini where we left off in a previous lifetime. Vajrayogini does not focus only on this lifetime because our lifespan is relatively short when compared to our future lifetimes in the larger scheme of things.

Purification of Negativities and Transformation of Destinies

Due to her emphasis in purifying our delusions (i.e., ignorance, hatred, desire), practitioners who strongly engage in Vajrayogini’s practice will see that their self-cherishing minds are transformed, from one plagued by various projections and attachments to a mind inclined towards benefiting others. Vajrayogini, by being a tantric practice, purifies negative karma from innumerable lifetimes. Her practitioners obtain peace of mind. They become equipped to accept life’s many challenges because they have overcome their delusions and can react so it creates less negative karma when faced with challenging situations. In this way, they transform their destinies and future lives for the better and can better enjoy success in this lifetime without any attachments.

yin ping: A5: 1)Ascending to Kechara Paradise to receive teachings directly from Vajrayogini, Heruka and the Mahasiddhas who reside there. 2) Doing Vajrayogini practices purify our delusions and negatives karma and transform our destinies and future lives for a better. 3)Good rebirth and be able to connect with Vajrayogini practice again when we hold commitments dearly.

Chris: Answer 5: Benefits of Vajrayogini's practice:

1. Ascending to Kechara Paradise
While appearing in a pure vision, Vajrayogini told Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche that if anyone received her practice within four generations after Pabongka Rinpoche, they would be able to ascend to Kechara Paradise within seven lifetimes. Subsequent generations would only be able to ascend to Kechara Paradise within 14 lifetimes. In Kechara Paradise, these practitioners would be able to receive teachings directly from Vajrayogini, Heruka and the Mahasiddhas who reside in that paradise.

2. Purification of Negativities and Transformation of Destinies
Due to her emphasis in purifying our delusions (i.e., ignorance, hatred, desire), practitioners who strongly engage in Vajrayogini’s practice will see that their self-cherishing mind’s are transformed, from one plagued by various projections and attachments to a mind that is inclined towards benefiting others. Vajrayogini, by virtue of being a tantric practice, purifies tremendous amounts of negative karma from innumerable lifetimes. As a result, her practitioners obtain peace of mind. They become equipped to accept life’s many challenges, because they have overcome their delusions and will be able to react in a way that creates less negative karma when faced with challenging situations. In this way, they transform their destinies and future lives for the better, and are better able to enjoy success in this lifetime without any attachments.

3. Good Rebirth and Being Able to Connect with Her Practice Again
Vajrayogini’s practitioners who hold their commitments will be protected from being reborn in the lower realms. Even if the practitioner is unable to complete the practice of dissolving their winds at the time of death, Vajrayogini will still meet and help the practitioners even in the bardo (intermediate state between life and death).

Pastor Adeline: A4. The four prerequisites of Vajrayogini’s practice as explained by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche are: 1. Unwavering faith in Vajrayogini as a deity and yidam, and unwavering faith meditations and rituals. The practitioner needs to have full faith and conviction that yes, you CAN develop attainments from her practice and she CAN bring you to her paradise, Dakpo Kachö.

2. To never miss tsok commitments. Rinpoche spoke about a way of overcoming situations when it becomes unavoidable for you to miss your commitments, for example, due to travel or physically debilitating illnesses.

3. To have clean samaya with your Guru. Never disturb your Guru’s mind by being sneaky, and refrain from destructive actions like lying and cheating.

4. To recite a short prayer three times per day, which is a request for us to enter her paradise.

Yee Yin: 4. What are the four prerequisites of Vajrayogini’s practice?

1. Having a Qualified Teacher Vajrayogini initiation should be received from a qualified teacher, who received Vajrayogini initiation from other qualified master(s) from an authentic lineage. The qualified teacher should also have been holding their commitments related to this initiation well. The teacher will observe the student and give the initiation when the student is ready.

2. Attitude and Knowledge
Tsem Rinpoche has advised that prior to receiving Vajrayogini initiation, Vajrayogini aspirants should act in the following manner:
- Practise integrity and fulfill your promise (words of honor)
- Execute assignments from the teacher diligently
- Contemplate on the teacher’s good qualities repeatedly
- Persevere in your practice
- Transform your mind (note: please refer to Eight Verses of Thought Transformation)
- Get along with other people and be forgiving
- Hold the current practice or sadhana given by the teacher daily consistently
- Maintain loyalty to one’s teacher and follow him / her all the way
- Maintain an attitude that is free from Eight Worldly Dharmas
- Practise non-attachment to name, fame, reputation, wealth and so forth. This does not mean that we cannot have all these things, but that we should not be attached to them
3. Preliminary Practices
Tsem Rinpoche has previously emphasised the importance of completing preliminary practices so that Vajrayogini aspirants can purify negative karma and collect merit.
4. Bodhisattva Vows
One of the prerequisites of Vajrayogini initiation is holding the Bodhisattva vows well. Without holding these vows, no results or attainments can be expected from any Tantric practice especially with Vajrayogini.

JP: 2. Vajrayogini’s form embodies the teachings and instructions for her practitioners to attain enlightenment. What is the meaning behind Vajrayogini’s three eyes? Her left eye looks up to Dakpo Kacho or Kechara. This represents that those who practice her Tantra and the 3 Principal Paths are free from the 8 Worldly Dharmas. In this way, Vajrayogini will lead them to Kechara Paradise. The practitioners will either be reborn in her Paradise where they receive teachings from her or Heruka, Dakinis or Mahasiddhas who also live in that Paradise or be reborn in a place where they meet qualified master who will teach them the practice again. Her right eye looks at sentient beings, which represents that although she is free from Samsara, she still stays in Samsara's borders to help sentient beings. The 3rd eye represents her omniscient qualities.

A1. Left eyes looking at Kechara Heaven, symbolizes her wish for us to ascend to her paradise, and for the people who do her practice, she will assist them always to bring them to her paradise.
Her right eye, looks compassionately at sentient beings still stuck in samsara, she expresses her help via her sadhana, yogas, and the lineage masters who propagate her teachings.
Her third eye at her forehead, shows that her central channel is clear, and this is an aspect for her omniscient mind.

Pastor Adeline: A3. Left eye: looking up to Dakpo Kachö (“Kechara”), Vajrayogini's heaven, which symbolises that for those who practice her Tantra and the Three Principal Paths free from the eight worldly Dharmas, Vajrayogini will lead them to Kechara paradise. Her practitioners will either be reborn in her actual paradise where they can receive teachings from her, Heruka, Dakinis or the Mahasiddhas who live in that paradise directly, or they will always be reborn in the place where they will meet qualified masters and receive her practice again. Therefore, by doing her practice, the amount of merits created and the amount of negative karma purified would help her practitioners to be reborn in beautiful positive places.

Right eye: looking down at sentient beings, which symbolises that although she has lifted herself from samsara, she still abides within samsara’s borders to help. By looking down at sentient beings, she manifests her love and compassion through her sadhana, yogas, and the lineage masters who propagate her teachings.

Third eye: represents the opening to her central channel that is cleared. It is an indication of Vajrayogini’s omniscient qualities.
