This date (January 17, 2011) marks the twenty-third anniversary of the dissolution of the physical manifestation of His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche. It’s an excellent time to remember his kindness, make offerings, and offer supplications.
His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche lived from 1904-1987. At one time, he had vowed to benefit all beings for as long as this aeon lasted.
In his previous life, he was identified in the 18th century as Dudjom Lingpa who was a mind manifestation of Padmasambhava; Yeshe Tsogyal’s speech emanation; and Keuchung Lotsawa’s body emanation.
As Guru Rinpoche told Yeshe Tsogyal, an individual would be born who would be the Master of the 1002 buddhas of our aeon.
Among Rinpoche’s several names are Yeshe Dorje, Wisdom Vajra, a name given in a prophecy by dakinis; Jigdral, Fearless, a name given by XV Karmapa, and Dudul Lingpatsel, the name given to him by the dakinis in his role as a treasure revealer.
Other incarnations include:
- Drukpa Kunley “the Divine Madman” (1455 – 1529)
- Mahasiddha Saraha (the 8th century)
- Humkara one of the eight vidyadharas of India
- Arhat Sariputra “foremost in wisdom” under Shakyamuni Buddha
