Tsokye Tuktik tsog


Regular practice

Tsokye Tuktik means Heart Essence of the Lake-Born Vajra, the secret accomplishment of Guru Rinpoche. It is a mind terma (gongter) of Dudjom Rinpoche focused on Guru Rinpoche in the form of Guru Tsokye Tuktik. It is the main practice of the Lama aspect in the Dudjom Tersar lineage and one of the four main terma cycles of Dudjom Rinpoche.

Guru Rinpoche is the expression of the three Kayas. On a relative level he assumes multiple forms of wisdom, such as the eight manifestations. The Tsokye Tuktik form is one of these eight manifestations.

In the outer aspect of the Lama, Guru Rinpoche takes the form of Orgyen Menla Dütsi Bum Zang (Guru Rinpoche of Medicine, the Excellent Vase of Nectar); in the inner aspect of the Lama he is Orgyen Khandro Norlha (the Guru of all Dzambhalas, which magnetizes the essential wealth of Samsara and Nirvana); in the secret aspect he is Tsokye Tuktik (the Vajra Lake-Born), and in the innermost secret aspect he is Lama Drakpo Taphur (the Wrathful Lama Union of Hayagriva and Vajrakilaya). The cycle also contains, among other, Long Life practices (Tsokye Tuktik Tse Drup).
