1.1. TWELVE DZOGCHEN BUDDHAS
»Thus, for the sake of an inconceivable number of disciples . Vajradhara, the Great, the truly and completely awakened conqueror , magically conjured forth guides in forms that corresponded to those to be guided . And these emanations were all endowed with five perfections in the following way in order to purify the five aggregates of their retinues .
First , the perfect teacher Great Vajradhara appeared in the realm Abundant Delight, in the perfect palace of a lotus flower . Here, as the teacher Youth of Inconceivable Sublime Light, he taught the DRA THAL GYUR – the tantra that precedes all others, the root of all teachings – to a retinue of thousand and two buddhas . The tantra *s compiler was the celestial youth Mighty Bringer of Joy whose companions included the deva Brilliant Sun . This was during the time when a life span could last an incalculable number of years . »
An excerpt from the Great History of the Heart Essence : Part One belonging to the Instruction Section*s Cycle of the Heart Essence of Vimalamitra .
Wellsprings of the Great Perfection : the lives and insights of the early masters , compiled and edited by Erik Pema Kunsang , Rangjung Yeshe Publications, Kathmandu, Nepal, 2006 .
Commentary by Tara Tulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche :
HOMAGE TO IMMACULATE BUDDHAS
Dzogchen master Vimalamitra taught Ati Yoga Dzogchen in Tibet and dictated this Great history to noble Tibetan translator Kawa Paltseg , at the second floor of the Samye temple .
Let us stop here and reflect on the above essential Dharma .
Twelve is always important number in Nyingma Buddhism , it represent complete cycle , like twelve signs of the Zodiac . This essential Dharma has outer, inner, secret and most secret meanings . Most readers understand it as outer meaning , that is : outside of themselves : once upon a time there was Vajradhara the great who sent forth magical emanations in order to guide disciples …. When we are on the Ati Yoga Dzogchen path of self-liberation , we gradually transcend time and space , even for a moment in the Samadhi of Sound has immeasurable merit for ourselves and others . Master Vimalamitra taught Samadhi of Sound while Nyingma scholar All-knowing Longchen Rabjam classified all Twenty-one Semdzins into three groups . Samadhi of Sound belongs to the second group of Semdzins .
With Direct introduction to our Real nature (Dharmata, Chonyid ) of Sound*Light*Rays , represented by Thigle Rainbow sphere with white letter A ཨ we come closer and closer to secret and innermost secret of Dra Thal Gyur Tantra * Penetration of Sound . Our five aggregates or skandas become more and more purified . We understand that Vajradhara the Great , appearing in the Realm of Abundant delight , in the perfect palace of the Lotus Flower , is beyond time and space . There is no limination of the PENETRATION OF SOUND * Dra Thal gyur , it is unimpeded continuity …..
Human beings without experiences of their real nature (Dharmata, Chonyid) or Buddha nature as it is called in Mahayana , need historical accounts , otherwise they will not believe . this was clearly pointed out by master Vimalamitra . Those of us who practice Ati Yoga Dzogchen can also understand Great history from outside to inside , like pilling of onion skin and coming closer and closer to our Real nature . Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche often explains on open webcast about outer, inner and secret Sound . Due to his immense devotion to teach Dzogchen Ati Yoga lineage to present generations around the world , these sacred teachings became more and more A-live . Many years ago I said to few English speaking Buddhist teachers : Do you know the meaning of Chonyid kyi rangdra ? Do you know the meaning of Natural Sound of Dharmata ? Nobody of them knew . …I came back to this world to uphold this endangered Lineage . » Therefore I practice Ati Yoga Dzogchen since June 1989 , that is 25 years with guidance of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu (born : 1938) . From 2000-2005/6 I received many Dzogchen instructions from Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche (1931-2011) who transmitted Ati Yoga essence lineage to me in Spring 2000. I am immensely grateful to these Dzogchen masters for all their kindness and precious Teachings . Since this dream I encouraged Chogyal Namkhai Norbu in few emails and letters, to teach from Dra Thal Gyur root tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha . May the secret Sound*Light*Rays be present in unimpeded continuity in all and may we have stable recognition of our Real nature (Dharmata, Chonyid) .
1.2. How did Dzogchen Dharmas reach our human realm : ๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑
Now in May 2014 we could listen to open webcast of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu : Dorje Sempa Namkhai Che * Total Space of Vajrasattva . These verses were recited by first Dzogchen master in human realm , Guru Garab Dorje who was emanation of Buddha Shakyamuni . As Chogyal Namkhai Norbu pointed out :« Shakyamuni Buddha practiced Contemplation/Samadhi for six years , sitting under the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya . Dra Thal Gyur is the essence of all Buddhist teachings .« When we contemplate secret Sound in ourselves , we know this Root or the Base (Xi) . https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=731074126958591&set=a.119110544821622.18782.119099664822710&type=1&theater
1.3. Continuation of Ati Yoga Essence lineage ๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑
All true Dzogchen masters are contemplating the secret Sound or Natural Sound of Dharmata of their real Nature (Dharmata, Chonyid) or Buddha nature . Natural Sound of Dharmata (Chonyid kyi rangdra) is immensely important , as explained :

❁‿↗⁀◎⊙ღ۩۞۩๑ღ⊙◎‿↗⁀❁ ATI YOGA ESSENCE LINEAGE –
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 .
๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑
In previous A-live Dharma teachings everyone could study and contemplate about Buddha Amitayus transmitting these Knowledge to Lotus-born Padmasambhava at the Maratika cave in Nepal .
๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑
Guru Padmasambhava said in Lamrin Yeshe Nyingpo , hidden treasure of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo : “Lord Amitayus at Maratika
And Maha Shri Heruka at Yanglesho
Bestowed upon me with the natural sound of dharmata
This sole quintessence of all the oral instructions.
If Garab Dorje, Shri Singha, the Eight Vidyadharas,
And all the supreme siddhas from whom I received the stages of the path
Were to hold a great Dharma discussion with one another,
There would be no other summary-manual than this compiling their realization.
Throughout the countries of Uddiyana, India, Tibet and elsewhere,
This is the unmistaken condensed meaning
Of all the infinite profound and extensive wheels of the Dharma
Such as guru sadhana, the Great Perfection, Avalokiteshvara and the Eight Sadhana Teachings.
In short, there does not exist an ultimate instruction other than this.
Expressed in few words yet including all that should be expressed.
Easy to comprehend and convenient to practice,
Without depending on anything else, it perfects the paths for those of lower, medium and higher faculties.
This is the self-resounding tantra of dharmata, the indestructible essence,
From the space of luminosity in the five-colored sphere within the heart of me, Padmasambhava.
It is the path traversed by all the buddhas of the three times.
Praised by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo as being more valuable than thirty yak loads of scriptures, the Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo comprises together with the commentary by Jamgon Kongtrul, the important last volume in both the collections of termas and teachings renowned as Rinchen Terdzo and New Treasures.”
ATIYOGA*DZOGCHEN ♫ ♫ SECRET SOUND OF DHARMATA
With the Blessings of these Great accomplished masters like Vimalamitra and Guru Padmasambhava this sacred Knowledge is transmitted and is resounding in the Heart .Sound is vibration – energy of Light , non-dual : primordial purity of voidness in ourselves (Skt. Shunyata , Tongpa nyid ) spontaneously manifesting as secret Sound of sacred white letter A in rainbow sphere * Thigle .
1.4. ATI YOGA LINEAGE PRAYER
Immaculate, non-dual space
of Samantabhadra :
shining rainbow sphere –
secret essence of Samantabhadri.
Display of five wisdom lights :
