Padmasambhava, Vimalamitra, Shantarakshita, King Trisong Deutsen, andVairochana were among the key figures who established the Nyingma tradition (An-cient Translation) in Tibet in the 8th and 9th centuries. The Nyingma tradition istransmitted through three lineages --
kama, terma
, and pure vision. The
lin-eage consists of the body of teachings that were mostly translated during the time of Guru Rinpoche. It has remained intact until the present day down to our own rootlama. The
lineage consists of teachings concealed mainly by Guru Rinpocheand Yeshe Tsogyal, and later discovered by karmically destined treasure-revealers,such as His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche. The lineage of pure vision consists of teach-ings given by buddhas, deities, and spiritual masters in visionary experiences. Theyare not

and pure vision of our root teacher, His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, Jigdral Yeshe Dorje. The Nyingma
classify the Buddhist teachings into nine vehicles. The threehighest are known as Mahayoga, Anuyoga, and Atiyoga, and are collectively referredto as Secret Mantra. To have a spiritual connection with Secret Mantra during histori-cal periods of defilement and obscuration is the result of two factors: the kindness of Guru Rinpoche whose countless emanations fill our universe, and our own purificationand cultivation of merit in previous life times. There can be no other causes for en-countering Secret Mantra. The system of Mahayoga has three meditation practices -- lama, yidam, anddakini. In the collected writings of Dudjom Lingpa and Dudjom Rinpoche known as
Dudjom Tersar 
, four sadhanas belong to the lama category. Orgyen Menlha is outerlama; Khandro Norlha is inner lama; Lake Born Vajra is secret lama; and Dorje Drolodis innermost lama.In this retreat, I will be teaching
The Lake Born Vajra
sadhana that was writtenby His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche. Dudjom Rinpoche was the guru of all buddhas andmore particularly, the guru of the one thousand nirmanakaya buddhas of this uni-verse. He was the incarnate representative of Padmasambhava and Lord Shakyamu-ni. His past lives include many of the gurus, yogis, and scholars that are still reveredto this today. His most recent incarnation was as Jigdral Yeshe Dorje (1904 - 1987), adirect emanation of the great visionary and meditation master, Dudjom Lingpa. Dud- jom Lingpa (1835 - 1904) was prophesized by Guru Rinpoche to be his own mind em-anation, Yeshe Tsogyal’s speech emanation and Drogban Khye’uchung Lotswa’s form
emanation. Dudjom Rinpoche himself was born in Tibet and dedicated his life to ben-efiting beings. He exemplified the threefold path of learning, contemplation, andmeditation. As well, Rinpoche was the supreme head of the Nyingma tradition. Hewas highly regarded for the many teachings he compiled and composed, such as therecently translated
History and Fundamentals of the Nyingmapa.
Unequaled in thesetimes, he was an exceptional meditation master, yogi, and a great visionary discover-er of hidden teachings. In particular, it was said that his teachings would have thespecial power of removing the defilements of beings in this day and age. Needless tosay, we are very fortunate to study and practice his teachings and to receive hisblessings. My reason for saying all this about Dudjom Rinpoche is so that you will nothave any doubts about the power of the Lake Born Vajra practice. You should under-stand from the onset that this practice will purify all your defilements and bring youto Guru Rinpoche’s pureland.Now I would like to side-track a bit to tell you something about me in relationto this practice. According to a certain prophecy, if a hundred thousand

feast offerings (
) are accumulated, then I will truly be able to benefit beingsand the doctrine in my lifetime. Of course I hope that this that the prophecy will befulfilled. Thank you.
