All these Dharmas are alive and unique, as offerings to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of ten directions and three times . Reflecting on the meaning of the Dharma is one of ten enlightened activities as taught by Guru Padmasambhava .
Now let us reflect on the meaning of Tulku or Nirmanakaya .

Homage to immaculate and immeasurable Buddhas ๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑
Nowdays and also in Buddhist history of Tibet there is musch appreciation for reincarnated Buddhist masters . Tibet institute in Rikon near Zurich in Switzerland published well documented book : Testimonies of Tibetan Tulkus – A research among reincarnated Buddhist masters in exile (1) . Since I visited Tibet institute in Rikon in Dezember 1988 , this book became one of my favorite studies for many years . I was very interested in knowing directly from their live experiences . Daniel Barlocher interviewed about thirty incarnated masters of different ages, from children to elderly . Mostly he covered Gelukpa order, some Tulkus came also from Kagyu order . Few of these masters were very critical of the Tibetan Tulku system !
In the interview with Daniel Barlocher they spoke openly about high amounts of money that monasteries demand for Tulku status (i.e. Dzokchen Tulku ) . Chogyal Namkhai Norbu (2) also addresses this issue many times during open webcast . Before understanding true meaning of the Tulku or Nirmanakaya we must also contemplate Dharma teachings of my precious root Guru (3) Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche (1931-2011) .
LINEAGE : MAGIC DANCE (4) the display of the self-nature of the five wisdom dakinis
»Essence lineage means that everything has unbreakable natural connection with continuous pure and natural energy.« How to have unbreakable continuous natural connection with continuous pure and natural energy ? By Ati Yoga Dzogchen practice : contemplating natural Sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chonyid kyi rangdra) . As Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche wrote in the Magic Dance :
THINLEY NORBU R. Big
» If we continously recognize the secret essence which pervades all phenomena there is natural unbroken Wisdom Mind Lineage which is unobstructed and without end . Lineage means the continuous , unbroken precious qualities manifested through many different forms and aspects whose essence always remains pure.«

Nyingma Vajrayana Buddhism
Rinpoche further continues : »If we are not connected to our secret essence Wisdom Mind because we are obscured by tradition, race , nationality, rank or politics, we can not know pure Buddhist lineage . …….If we are not concerned with true spiritual qualities but are superficially seduced by eastern costums and manners because we associate east with Buddhist lineage, we are also disrespectful to pure Buddhist lineage . If we think that only priests, lamas and gurus have lineage, then we have title lineage conception and padlock and key lineage conception which is disrespectful to pure spiritual lineage.«
2.2. Afterword :
May these wisdom words of Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche enlighten everyone about true Buddhist lineage which has no owner ….

2.3. Dharma correspondance with S. D. senior monk/student from Namdroling monastery in South India :
Taar Tulku Drimed Drolkhar : I already send support letter for Tulku Tashi Mingyur Dorje to the office of HH the Dalai Lama last autumn , when Tulku Tashi went to Namcho empowerment at Sechen monastery in kathmandu …

S.D. How its ll be benefit him ? . . People were so crazy and desire for name and recognise
Tara Tulku Drimed Drolkhar :Tulku Tashi deserves recognition . Many have names of Rinpoche and Tulku and Lama who don*t deserve such names , they only collect disciples and money , they don*t serve the Teachings of the Buddhas .

S.D. Yes. . . Its precisely
Tara Tulku Drimed Drolkhar :Lord Buddha said : My precious Lions Dharma throne does not have an owner . The one who has wisdom and compassion and can benefit beings, can sit upon my Throne .

S.D. Precisely
Tara Tulku Drimed Drolkhar : This means : one does not need to be enthroned in a monastery to teach the Dharma and to be authentic Buddhist master .

. Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche : Rebirth
Is the Buddhist rebirth doctrine the same for spiritual teachers and ordinary beings ? What about you ? Buddhas are reborn effortlessly through a most powerful wisdom compassion. Bodhisattvas are reborn due to their great and powerful prayers and aspirations in previous lives. Ordinary beings are reborn simply as a result of their karma.
When great teachers are born, they unobstructedly manifest the wisdom compassion of the enlightenment mind of the Buddha through various appearances in whatever way will be of most benefit for the different faculties of sentient beings.

VAJRA OF DHARMATA NATURAL SOUND

VAJRA OF DHARMATA NATURAL SOUND


This lineage : Chönyid kyi rangdra or Natural Sound of Dharmata has origin in Dra Thal Gyur root tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha . Master Vimalamitra is the only one who wrote commentary on Dra Thal Gyur tantra or Reverberation of Sound .Vimalamitras commentary is preserved at Khatok monastery in East Tibet . REVERBERATION OF SOUND is the root of all Buddhist Dharma . Reverberation of Sound (Dra Thal Gyur) is connected to 16 other Dzogchen Upadesha tantras . We need to see this display diametrical as a circle , not horizontal . DRA THAL GYUR tantra in the centre and names of 16 other Upadesha tantras around .

We can not hold Wikipedia as source of ultimate knowledge of the Dharma . Entry about Tulku in Wikipedia is very limited and also superficial :

To truly understand Tulku or Nirmanakya we must reflect of writings of enlightened Buddhist masters and their Dharmas which have deep wisdom and are not sectarian ….

2.1. “Undeluded wisdom mind of all Buddhas continues permanently in one stainless, unghangeable essence of sky. The permanence of pure phenomena of enlightenment of Nirmanakaya and Sambhogakaya are the qualities of measureless Buddhahood and are inseparable from the permanence of the great, indestructible emptiness of Dharmakaya.”  Thinley Norbu Rinpoche in White Sail – Crossing the waves of Ocean Mind to the serene continent of the Triple Gems – The Transitional states, the Yogas and the Kayas.
Jewel of Enlightened Activity
OM AH HUM
Precious Root Lama  Jewel of Enlightened Activity (1),
You showed us impermanence of life
To awaken our Buddha nature in unimpeded continuity.
With Sound*Light of Dharmata (2)
May our primordial state be one with you,
Unseparable Dharmakaya master ,
Samantabhadra Buddha (3).
Emanation of All-knowing (4) Longchen  Rabjam
And of Drime Ödser (5)
May your Enlightened Activities (6)
Fill the sky with Radiance
Shining from the Jewel (7)
Of your enlightened Awareness (8).
SVA HA

2.2. Afterword:
During my Dzogchen study and practice mind to mind and heart to heart  with Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche from autumn 1999 till summer 2006 I received transmission of Ati Yoga Dzogchen essence lineage of Samantabhadra-Vajrasattva-Garab Dorje …. Rinpoche also offered me his jacket and encouraged me to serve the Teachings of Buddhas . Compassionately he prayed for me with these words : “I will pray for your long life and actual wisdom Dakini qualities prospering for the benefit of all beings.” In one of his letter to me Rinpoche wrote  that “after leaving residual karmic body he wish to rest undistracted in the state of Samantabhadra Buddha.”  From Dec 26 , 2011 onward Rinpoche was in Thugdam meditation for seven days …. May His enlightened aspiration be fulfilled . May we all rejuvenate the Wisdom Body and A-bide for ever with immeasurable Buddhas .

Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche wrote in one of His great Dharma works in English: “ If we believe in the continuity of mind, then love inconspicuously connects us to ones we love with continuous positive energy , so that even tangible separation between people who love each other do not reduce the intangible power of love. This love is automatically enduring since it is not easily affected by circumstances.”  White Sail, Love and Faith.
As Lama Tharchin Rinpoche of Vajrayana Foundation said , Rinpoche requested everyone connected to him to practice Vajrasattva sadhana for 21 days after His parinirvana. Vajrasattva Buddha is holder of symbolic transmission in Ati Yoga Dzogchen lineage.  Rinpoche also wrote about primordial purity : “The unconditioned , natural state of Buddhas and its immeasurable phenomena are always equally pure. Therefore, all Buddhas are never in transitional states because they are always abiding in indivisible, vajra wisdom Buddha fields.”
Very many Dharma students from all over the world are attending Tribute to Kyabje Thinley  Norbu Rinpoche . May Rinpoche´s Wisdom words reflect in our hearts , pointing out undestructable Vajra essence Light :” The nature of love is to give positive energy to others in order to benefit them and to release them from suffering. The nature of faith is to trust in sublime beings in order to receive blessings of wisdom energy that benefit oneself and others. True faith creates vast love of compassion that benefit countless beings.” White Sail – Love and Faith. _/♥\_OM AH HUM VAJRA GURU PEMA SIDDHI HUM

Information Regarding the Parinirvana of HH Dungsé Thinley Norbu Rinpoche

Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche and HH Penor RinpocheAll of the Palyul tulkus, khenpos, lamas, monks, nuns and students are deeply saddened by the news of the parinirvana of the great master of the Nyingma School, Kyabjé Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche. Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche entered into his final meditation (Thugdam) on the 26th of December, 2011 where he abided for seven days. His Eminence Tulku Garab Rinpoche informed His Eminence Mugsang Kuchen Rinpoche that Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche wanted all his devotees to accumulate the Seven Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche and/or Vajra Guru mantra as much as possible during thi time.

The Sangha Community of Namdroling Monastery will perform a grand Mindroling tradition Vajrasattva Guru Yoga in front of the Maha Bodhi Stupa at Bodhgaya at the time of Nyingma Monlam Chenmo to receive Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche’s blessings. Many monks and nuns have already departed for Bodh Gaya and are carrying through practice there.

We are attaching a Swift Return Prayer written by Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche’s son, His Eminence Tulku Garab Rinpoche (PDF):

Prayer for Swift Rebirth of Kyabjé Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche by His Eminence Tulku Garab Rinpoche

Kyabjé Dungsé Thinley Norbu Rinpoche was the holder of the Dudjom Tersar lineage. He was a prominent modern teacher in the Nyingma lineage, the eldest son of the great teacher Jigdral Yeshe Dorje, the Second His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche. He was the father of Their Eminences Tulku Garab Rinpoche, Tulku Jampal Rinpoche, and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. Khyentse Rinpoche has posted regarding his father’s passing to Thugdam here on Facebook.

Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche was the incarnation of Tulku Trimé Özer, who was one of seven sons of the First Dudjom Lingpa. He was considered to be an emanation of Longchenpa. In his youth in Tibet he studied for nine years at Mindroling Monastery. His main centers are in the northern Catskills of upstate New York and in California. He wrote many books published by Shambhala, which are possible to find here. Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche and our late Kyabjé Penor Rinpoche had great respect and devotion for each other. These two masters visited each other’s centers in New York State on many occasions over the years.

Those who wish to pay their respects to the Kudung of Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche as provided to Namdroling Monastery:

Parinirvana of Kyabje Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche

Prepared by: Mindrolling International News Staff
Published: 28 December 2011

Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche The Mindrolling sangha is deeply saddened at the parinirvana of the great master of the Nyingma School, Kyabje Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, who withdrew his consciousness into the expanse of dharmata on the 27th of December, 2011.
Condolence letter

AMITABHA FOUNDATION
H.E. Choeje Ayang Rinpoche Lama
Founder / Chairman

Dear Sangha and friends,

We are extremely sad to hear that His Holiness Kyabje Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche passed away into parinirvana last night, December 26, 2011 . On behalf of Amitabha Foundations worldwide . the Drikung Charitable Society in India , and the associated Kagyud Thubten Shedrub Jangchubling Monastic Institute, I send my sincere condolences to Dungse Rinpoche´s family members , disciples and students throughout the world.

Dungse Rinpoche was the eldest son of His Holiness Jigdral Yeshe Dorje , Dudjom Rinpoche, the former head of the Nyingma lineage. For many years, Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche taught the Buddha dharma in America as well as through the Himalayan area , introducing many students to Dzogchen through his personal instructions and incomparable writings. I myself was fortunate to take teachings from Dungse Rinpoche´s father , His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, and so have a connection with a lineage that Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche carried.

It is said that Dungse Thiley Norbu Rinpoche left a message asking that everyone connected to him do Vajrasattva practice for three weeks after his passing. As all Great Masters are one in their wisdom minds , every student of the Buddha dharma , irrespective of the lineage of teachings they are following, is actually connected with Rinpoche without any need for sectarian prejudice. Hence through this practice we all have the opportunity of connecting with his wisdom mind and receiving his blessings, even though he has now left his physical body behind and merged with the ineffable Dharmakaya. If you have taken the Outer, Inner, Secret and Innermost Secret Vajrasattva teachings or the Vajrasattva connected with the Nyingma Phowa from the preliminary Practices (Ngondro), then I request that you practice Vajrasattva every day for the next three weeks.

This of course is not in any way to benefit such a great, realized being as Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, but to increase your own merit and wisdom to benefit sentient beings.

May he continue to inspire countless devoted disciples that they may completely accomplish their practice. May his enlightened activity spread through his descendants and his golden lineage. May he be reborn swiftly in order for Buddha dharma may flourish and he may continue to benefit countless beings.

With my prayers

Dungse Rinpoche’s remains

« The remains are collected from the purkhang
Purkhang A thoepa (skull) and tsem (six teeth) were collected yesterday from the remains, purthel (ashes) and kuri (bones) of His Holiness Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, five days after the purjang (cremation) on March 3 in Dagophu, Paro.

The remains were collected from a 25 feet tall purkhang chorten (crematorium), coinciding with the 15th day of the first Bhutanese month, in a traditional religious procession. The purkhang, which stood on an intricately carved dais, with a traditional roof over it, and held by four pillars painted with Bhutanese designs, remain untouched until the remains were collected.

Home minister, Minjur Dorji, who was present during the collection, said the skull and six teeth were found without even a burnt mark. “It’s a miracle and we should all be proud for being able to conduct the purjang in Bhutan,” lyonpo said.

Paro’s national museum director, Khenpo Phuntsok Tashi, explained that the remains are body relics, which enlightened masters after cremation leave behind.

“The remains signify that the Rinpoche’s mind has reached the level of five Buddhas’ contemplation, representing the attainment of Buddhahood,” he said.

Lopen Sonam from Bartsam, who initiated in designing the purkhang, said the purkhang’s inside where the kudung was cremated had turned white. “There was no sign of fire,” he said.

He said part of the collected ashes would be made into tsa tsa (miniature replica containing religious scripts) for offerings; while some will be placed in Jangchub chorten (stupa) as relics. He said, once the remains are collected, the purkang, also called nyangdey chorten (parinirvana), would be turned into a Jangchub chorten. Lopen Sonam said the bones would be powdered and put into statues.

The reincarnation of His Holiness Dudjom Jigdral Yeshe Dorji, Sangay Pema Rinpoche, who presided over the purjang ceremony, performed ruchog, a purification ceremony of the bones and remains.

More than a thousand devotees were present during the collection of Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, who passed away on December 27 in the United States.

TRACES OF PREVIOUS LIVES

Have we already met before ?

The Sound of Dharmata is unimpeded continuation where lives are shining jewels on the string of necklace, offered to the Wisdom deity.

Around summer 1983 I was in Munich , encountering an Indian shop with very nice Asian shoes. They were ethnic, of green color with red ornaments. I did not know that this are Tibetan shoes and I began to use them because they were very comfortable. But it was very unusual to wear such shoes in Europe at that time. Ayu Khandro (1839-1953) must have been walking all over Tibet in such shoes when she was on her religious pilgrimages with her Vajra Friend. For me she was the emanation of White Tara.


In the same city I came across a store with Asiatic literature and ritual objects. Although it was very expensive, I bought the Vajra and the Bell and put them on my altar. They were very sacred to me and I did not even touch them for a long time. But when I began to use them  it felt very naturally to hold them . Even after 25 years I still use the same Vajra and the Bell. Tsewang Dorje Paldron-Ayu Khandro used such rituals instruments for many decades of her very long life. Five years continued from passing away of Ayu Khandro and my birth in Slovenia (at that time part of Yugoslavia), Europe. Nobody was looking to find me, although Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche came to live in neighboring Italy around 1962. I was always waiting that somebody comes and take me away. Tibetans are very careless and usually they don´t search for reincarnations of female Buddhist masters. But search teams were sent out to find reincarnations of almost every possible and impossible male Buddhist masters! After so many years of waiting that somebody comes and find me, now when I grew up physically and spiritually, it doesn´t really matter that nobody came! If somebody would search for my emanation and if I would be discovered by Tibetans, it would most probably mean great obstacle. Such obstacles happens to many Tulkus. One can study Testimonies of Tibetan Tulkus-A Research among Reincarnated Buddhist Masters in Exile (1). Many Tibetan Tulkus were very critical about their system of recognizing Tulkus. Many of them did not even want to belong to such system any more, because they could not fulfill their Dharma work in such unjust post feudalistic system! More contemporary research must be done about the role of Tulkus in globalised world of third millennium.

Many years ago I said to some female astrologer in a clairvoyant dream : „I am Bodhisattva from Tushita.“ It is very natural to be strict vegetarian because Buddha Maitreya will first teach not to eat meat and not to kill animals. Every vegetarian should treasure Buddha Maitreya in his/her heart. Maitri means compassion. My Dharma Advice for everybody beginns with : first of all become a vegetarian! Later you will understand spiritual Truths which are far beyond ordinary awareness of meat eaters!

Historical connection :

Yes , there are a lot of historical connections with Buddhist masters in Tibet who now live all over the world. But more important as to discover such historical connections is to have trust (2) in ones´s wisdom awareness . If somebody gives you a title of Tulku (3) he could misunderstand it that you now  belong to him. If you don´t work according to his expectations (selling the Dharma as many nowdays do) , he could „remove“ such title from you, not knowing you any more. As if we were in the army! But you must know yourself. If you don´t know who you are, you will be always conditioned by others. You will be like a puppet. Famuous Buddhist mahasiddha in Tibet, Drukpa Kunley made many jokes about such situations. One can read them in his biography : The Divine madman. Which doesn´t mean that he was mad- he was extremely wise and courageous !

Female Buddhist masters in ancient Tibet generally did not have much properties. They were not landlords or owners of great monasteries. When they passed away, no physical properties remained after them. There was no labrang or support group. So who would be interested to find their incarnations ?! One can almost say : No property – no religious title !

In third millennium times are changing. Many awake people in this globalized world understand the importance of gender equality (4). Buddhism is spiritual religion, capable of adapting to new situations and circumstances. It should not be a religion which would remain known only by the fact that women have been greatly discriminated !

In March 1994 Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche arrived at Ljubljana airport, carrying with him eight Treasure Vases according to the project : Siddhartas intent for world peace.  When we met for the first time, he just asked directly : Have we already met before ? I was surprised at such question. Later I was thinking that Khyentse Rinpoche was just telling one of his jokes by asking such question. But there is some truth in asking : „Have we already met before ?“ Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo(1820-1892), one of previous incarnations of Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche (born 1961) , was one of most important Gurus of Ayu Khandro (1839-1953). During his White Tara Initiation he gave her the Dharma name : Tsewang Paldron. Now, in March 2008, 14 years after this question I can say : Yes, we already met in ancient Tibet…“

Shortly after seeing the movie Little Buddha , where H.E. Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche (5) was Buddhist advisor to Bernardo Bertolucci, I had a dream : „At the inner court yard of the Buddhist monastery at Paro in Bhutan, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and I knelled down on the floor and the crowns of our heads touched.“ Similar scene is found in the movie Little Buddha, near the end of the film. I was very impressed by Khyentse Rinpoche´s teaching at the Adriatic sea side in 1994 : Meditation in action. He was very critical toward Buddhism, but also very humorous. I remember him teaching : „Those Lamas and those Rinpoches have most dangerous „battlefields“. It is called the booby-trap.“ While I was translating his teachings into Slovenian, I did not know at that time the true meaning of a „booby-trap“. Today the meaning is much clearer!  Rinpoche is courageous Bodhisattva, reaching wide audiences with his Buddhist movies and teachings.

On 8th day of the 2nd lunar month (dedicated to Arya Tara and Medicine Buddha), in March 1994, he gave me the Refuge name Tara (Liberation). It is from the view of that Liberation where enlightened courage is invoked. As his father Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche writes in his Dharma book Magic Dance – the display of the self-nature of five Wisdom Dakinis :

„I bow to my own Wisdom Mind

which is my best Wisdom teacher,

the source of all visible and invisible qualities…“


True Dharma practitioners follows authentic Guru for a long time before he/she understand the above Dharma about bowing to one´s own Wisdom Mind as written by Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche.

Besides such historical connections I realized that I came back to this world

to uphold endangered Atiyoga essence lineage : Self-liberated Sound of Dharmata.


Ayu Khandro spent more than 50 years on solitary retreat near the river in East Tibet,

mostly in dark retreat (and inner Light & Sound).

There is natural continuation of the Sound of Dharmata.

Notes :

1. Daniel Bärlocher, Opuscula Tibetana, Tibet Institute, Rikon, Swiss, 1982. I visited Tibet Institute in Dezember 1988.

2. Such trust in one´s wisdom awareness is also confidence (Tib. Deng). It is similar to the second & third statement of Atiyoga Dzogchen master Garab Dorje with the meaning to continue in one´s natural state.

3. Tulku is Buddhist term in Tibetan language for Nirmanakaya. We follow Nyingma lineage of interpretation of three Dimensions or kayas : Dharmakaya (Chöku), Sambhogakaya (Longku), Nirmanakaya (Tulku). To be the Tulku is not a hierarchical  position, but a function of compassion and enlightened energy for all beings.  This term is translated in Chinese language  as Living Buddha.

Description of the term Tulku as it is published in Wikipedia (2010) is incomplete (too limited only to Tibetan tradition). True Nirmakaya transcends every race , nationality etc.

4. Just before publishing this Dharma treatise on internet I actively took part on  the pannel discussion about Gender equality and empowerment of women, which is 3rd goal of United nations Millenium plan . Panel discussion took place in the government hall in Ljubljana, Slovenia, EU  on March 18, 2009. Three female ambassadors took part in educating about gender equality , namely from Denmark, Finland and Norway.

5. This Dharma treatise was sent to H.E. Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche in 2008 via email.

1. What is the meaning of the Sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chönyid kyi rang dra) in this Dharma treatise ?

2. If you have some traces of previous lives, write them down and reflect on them.
