GARAB DORJE PDF

As an emanation of Vajrasattva, Prahevajra is such a nirmanakaya, appearing as the first human lineage-holder of the Dzogchen teachings. He was born, amidst many auspicious signs and predictions, to a nun who was the daughter of the royal family of Uddiyana. At age seven and without having studied, he entered into a philosophical debate with five hundred scholars, the most skilled in the royal court and defeated them all. He was recognised to be a nirmanakaya emanation and the king subsequently named him Prahevajra Delightful Vajra. Afterwards he meditated on a mountaintop until the age of thirty-two when, in a blaze of light, Vajrasattva or, according to some accounts, Vajrapani bestowed upon him the empowerments, instructions and entrustment of the Dzogchen Tantras.

He was recognised to be a nirmanakaya emanation and the king subsequently named him Prahevajra Delightful Vajra. Afterwards he meditated on a mountaintop until the age of thirty-two when, in a blaze of light, Vajrasattva or, according to some accounts, Vajrapani bestowed upon him the empowerments, instructions and entrustment of the Dzogchen Tantras.

And so, with the help of dakinis, he spent three years transcribing the teachings he had received. He spent the rest of his life in Sitavana, a famous charnel ground northeast of Bodhgaya, where he meditated and taught the Dharma to dakinis, many hundreds of thousands of whom attained the rainbow body.

When he died at the source of the Danatika River, his body dissolved into immaculate space amid masses of rainbow light. His main disciple, Manjushrimitra, was overcome and cried out to his master. Although appearing as human beings due to the perceptions and needs of their disciples, many of these teachers were in fact buddhas or bodhisattvas, as in the case of Prahevajra and Padmasambhava.

Prahevajra Garab Dorje.

Legends of the Dzogchen Masters

In the Land of Uddiyana, on the island Dhanakosha, was a great temple called the Blissful Tower, Deje Tsekpa, surrounded by shrines. Their daughter, Sudharma, had taken novice vows and soon after the full Bhiksuni ordination, and she lived on a small island with her maidens in meditation. One night she dreamed that an immaculate white man came to her holding a crystal vessel sealed with the mantra OM AH HUNG SVAHA, and he placed it on her head three times and light shone out from it and she perceived the threefold world clearly in its totality. Soon after the Bhiksuni Sudharma gave birth to a son, but ashamed that the baby had no father, she sought to conceal it and threw it into a pit of ashes. Light and music emanated from the ash pit and after three days the mother retrieved the baby and the gods and spirits came with offerings to honour him. But Sudharma remained unaware that the baby's father was the Bodhisattva High Mind, Adhicitta, the emanation of Vajrasattva who had taught Dzogchen in the heavens. When he was seven years old, the boy defeated the five hundred panditas of the royal court in debate and they gave him the name Prajnabhava, Wisdom Being, but the king called him Acharya Garab Dorje and by that name he became renowned.
