NYINGTHIG YABZHI TAGDROL KHORLO
THE LIBERATION UPON WEARING MEDALLION
We bring you this precious Nyingthig Yabzhi Tagdrol Khorlo medallion. This is a very special item.
Nyingthig Yabzhi is the Four Higher Collections of the Heart Drop. This collection contains the teachings of the three lineages of Dzogchen. It has the highest teachings of Dzogchen in which the realization of the primordial Buddha is awakened within Vajradhara and the five Buddha families, beyond transmission, instructions or symbolism. This is the wisdom realization lineage; the 12 Dzogchen Buddhas are included.
Vajradhara taught the Vidyadhara Garab Dorje, Manjushrimitra, Shrisingha, Vimalamitra, Jnanasutra, Guru Rinpoche, Vairocana through symbolic transmission. This lineage is called the symbolic lineage of the wisdom holders.
These teachings were transmitted from the wisdom holders down to the Omniscient One Longchenpa and the present day masters. This lineage is called the oral lineage of the individuals.
The teachings from Vimalamitra are called the Vima’s Heart Drop (Vima Nyingthig). The teachings from Guru Rinpoche are called the Dakini’s Heart Drop (Khandro Nyingthig). These are the Mother Heart Drop teachings.
Through these teachings, Longchenpa awoke to the luminous state of the abiding nature. He then wrote the commentaries and revealed these heart drops into what are collectively called the Child Heart Drop teachings: the Profound Heart Drop of the Dakini (Khandro Yangthig) and the Profound Heart Drop of the Lama (Lama Yangtig). These two Mother Heart Drops and the two Child Heart Drops compose the Four Higher Collections of the Heart Drop: The Nyingthig Yabzhi. The Yabzhi also includes the Profound Quintessence Heart Drop (Zabmo Yangtig), in which Longchenpa condenses the teachings of all four Mother and Child Heart Drops.
The three sources that nurture the teachings always remain together. Wherever these three sources that nurture the teaching descend, the Dzogchen teachings prevail.
One of those sources is “The Single Son of Buddha” tantra. This Tantra is considered as Liberation Upon Wearing. This is the main tantra in the Nyingthig Yabzhi from which the 17 Dzogchen tantras arise.
Guru Rinpoche said: “Everyone knows about Buddhahood through meditation, but I know Buddhahood without meditation”.
Therefore, in Guru Rinpoche’s teachings, there are five teachings that bring liberation without meditation:
- Buddhahood through eating: Liberation Upon Tasting the Kyedun Shai Rilbu.
- Budddhahood through wearing: Liberation Upon Wearing the Tagdrol Tantras.
- Buddhahood through listening: The empowerments and instructions on Liberation Upon Hearing in the bardos (bardo thodrol a.k.a. The Tibetan Book of the Dead).
- Buddhahood through seeing: the Pith Instructions of Thögal.
- Buddhahood through remembering: the Teachings of Phowa, the Liberation Upon Recollection.
The Liberation Upon Wearing Tagdrol is the subject of the medallion.
With this one and only nano laser technology, the entire 13 volumes of the Nyingthig Yabzhi, with 7214 pages, have been amazingly etched on a 28mm-diameter nickel disc. When viewed through a microscope one will be able to read the texts in the precise detail of the original work. This complex image is over 20 billion pixels. The process is much more detailed than what NASA has ever done with space photos.
The AH syllable, the supreme of all syllables, on the front of the medallion is transparent (so you can read the text) and at times, when caught by the light, displays beautiful shifting patterns of iridescence.
