The Alchemy of the Secret Heart Essence
Powerful Transformation elucidates the alchemical principles of development and completion stage practices applied in a sublime manner. What prevents the meditation experiences and realization from arising, are mainly our misdeeds, obscurations and habitual patterns, these can be purified by Vajrasattva Practice. When a yogi attains accomplishment, the obstacles become greater and can be overcome by Vajrakilaya Practice, combined with recognition of mind nature. In the Secret Heart Essence, these two powerful yidams are combined as conduits to realization and accomplishment. These teachings on the hidden treasures of Chokgyur Lingpa by Karmey Khenpo Rinchen Dargye, Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche, and Orgyen Topgyal Rinpoche exactly describe how to train.
In truth, Vajra Kumara is the most powerful of all deities to dispel obstacles on the path toward enlightenment. This is why many great practitioners focus on the Vajra Kumara practice to overcome adverse circumstances.
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
The dharmakaya state is our own essence, but we consider the dharmakaya buddha, as being `up there’ and descending `down here’ to give teachings. However, the nature of our own mind, our buddha nature itself, is the `dharmakaya buddha’. Because we fail to acknowledge this fact, the dharmakaya has to manifest some visible versatile forms for us to be able to understand what our own nature actually is. First, we should understand the basic idea. Attaining the state of enlightenment simply means becoming (one with) one’s nature – the dharmakaya state.
