In the Land of Oddiyana, on the island Danakosha
(where Guru Rinpoche was born), there
was a great temple called the Blissful Tower, Deje Tsekpa,
surrounded by 6800 shrines. In this tower lived King Upa Raja
and his consort Queen Radiance.
Their daughter Sudharma had taken
novice vows, soon after the full Bhiksuni ordination. She
lived on a small island with her maidens in meditation. One
night, she dreamed that an immaculate white man came to her,
holding a crystal vessel sealed with the mantra OM AH HUM
SVAHA. He placed it on her head three times. Light shone
out from it and she perceived the threefold world clearly
in its totality.
Soon after the Bhiksuni, Sudharma gave birth
to a son, but ashamed that the baby had no father. She sought
to conceal it and threw it into a pit of ashes. Light and
music emanated from the ash pit. After three days, the mother
retrieved the baby. Gods and spirits came with offerings to
honour him. But Sudharma remained unaware that the baby's
father was the Bodhisattva High Mind, Adhicitta (the
emanation of Vajrasattva) who had taught Dzogchen in the heavens.
Here this Holy baby is known
as the Ash-Colored Revenant (Ro-lang thal mdog).
When he was seven years old, the boy defeated the
five hundred panditas of the royal court in debate. They gave him
the name Prajnabhava, Wisdom Being. But the king called him
Acharya Garab Dorje, by that name he became renowned.
It was at this time that the boy recited the sutra The Vast Spaciousness
Garab Dorje renounced his parentage and
palace. This Joyful Vajra joyfully journeyed to the mountains, where
amongst peaks inhabited by Hungry Ghosts. He spent thirty-two years
meditating in the residence of a Mountain God. Here he achieved
realization with a rainbow body and the earth shook seven times.
The world made obeisance, but the Shakta-Dakinis proclaimed that
a danger to their yoga practice had arisen. When the Hindu king
sent messengers to apprehend him he ascended into the sky.
At the completion of his period of renunciation
and ascetic practices, Garab Dorje had comprehended both the outer
and inner paths. Most particularly he had apprehended the sixty-four
hundred thousand Dzogchen verses. Then Bodhisattva Vajrasattva
gave him the initiation and empowerment of the Bestowal of Awareness
and permission to write down the sixty-four hundred thousand Dzogchen
verses and the oral tantras. They were written down by three Dakinis,
some say on Mount Malaya.
He was renowned as the Happy
Revenant & Joyful Vajra.
Garab Dorje then journeyed to Bodhigaya, to the
terrible Sitavana cremation ground, where he remained for the rest
of his life. He met his disciple Jampal Shenyen (Manjushrimitra)
there and taught him for seventy five years. He attained his parinirvana
in a mass of light and then, bestowed upon Manjushrimitra a tiny
golden casket containing Dzogchen verses. The text called The
Three Incisive Precepts (Tsiksum Nedek) was amongst those verses.
