*Lhadrub Dewa Dorje Pure Vision Empowerment

The famous Drigung master Rigdzin Chökyi Dragpa (1595-1659) was doing retreat in the Golden Temple at Drigung Thil. There he had the realization that the root of the entire universe of samsara and nirvana is the Guru of your own mind. Falling asleep in such a state, he had a pure vision of Jigten Sumgön, the founder of the Drigung Kagyü, who taught him the Profound Path of Accomplishing the Guru Cycle in his dreams. In this cycle of practice one accomplishes the outer guru of the Buddha Shakyamuni, the inner guru of Vajradhara, the secret guru of the father Vajra Bliss (Dewai Dorje) in union with the mother Vajra Emptiness, and the ultimate Guru that is realized through merging your mind with the mind of your root guru inseparable from Jigten Sumgön. This cycle also contains extensive teachings on the subtle channels, winds, essences, inner fire practices, yogic exercises, karmamudra, and ultimate mahamudra completion stage instructions. The rare empowerment of Dewai Dorje is the gateway to all the practices of this profound pure vision cycle.
