Even Thrangu Rinpoche, albeit somewhat tacitly, agreed to this latter idea. But while the Dalai Lama is traditionally identified as an emanation of four-armed white Avalokiteshvara Tib.
He received multiple transmissions, both oral transmissions from Sumatikirti and back to Mahapala and from Tipupa and back to Druppai Gyalmoand Terma transmission from Mikyo Dorje not the 8th Karmapa, but a student of Nyang.
Amitabhathe top most figure, is known as The Buddha of boundless Light. Here is a point to “bake one’s noodle” excuse the plagiarized quote please. In the four cardinal directions are four smaller manifestations of red four-armed Avalokiteshvara, each of which are similar in appearance to the main deity, except that they hold crystal rosaries in their second right hands and have different consorts.
All of the seventeen incarnations of the Gyalwa Karmapa, and the fourteen incarnations of the Dalai Lama, are equally recognized as being manifestations of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of great compassion.

Sign in New Customer? I have discussed this in depth with the late Bokar Rinpoche who looked it up in his personal note books and also verified that when he received the lineage, it was stated to be mother tantra. The extensive use of both Generation stage as in Guhyasamaja in tyalwa outerpractice Father Tantra and then Mother tantra inner secret etc and finally other methods in integrated and most secret practice may put it into other categories and hence Khyentse Rinpoche, Gywtso Karthar Rinpoche and some agreement wrom Bokar Rinpoche, suggests non dual.

However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it’s hard to cover them completely. Gyalwa Gyatso is a yidam deity of the ‘father-tantra’ class of Highest Yoga Tantra deities, which emphasizes the development of compassion or ‘skilful means’ upaya.
The colours of each of these ‘Four Mothers’ or consorts correspond to the four directions, they are all peaceful in appearance with two eyes, and are adorned with the divine silk and jeweled ornaments.
In the southwest corner is yellow Ratnasambhava, who holds a blazing jewel. In another he has only two arms, and is in union with a consort who may or may not be Vajrayogini.
As in an earlier post however, Kongtrul lists this tantra as a mother tantra. He is adorned with the five divine silk garments and eight jeweled ornaments of a gyatsoo deity. Her naked body is adorned with the five bone ornaments, a five-skull crown, and a garland of fifty dry white skulls. The Drubthab kundu lists it among mother Tantras. In the Kamtsang, the two armed form is “Sahaja Jinasagara. From the viewers left to right are: At the bottom are gyalsa Dakinis of the four directions.
His consort, Vajrayogini, is semi-wrathful, with three eyes, and a slightly reddish-white complexion. Jinasagarameaning the ‘Conqueror-ocean’, is a four-armed manifestation of red Avalokiteshvara with his consort, whose practice is of particular importance in the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
The protector Tamdrin Hayagriva appears to the right of Chenrezig viewers left. This “one to one” lineage expired around the time of ghalwa fifth Karmapa when it became more widely practiced and hence gyalws to and via Karma Chagme Rinpoche.
It is still considered “the life blood” of the Dakinis as mentioned in “The Gem of many colours”. PS I have discussed this with many Lamas other than mentioned for eg Tenga Rinpoche, Traleg Rinpoche etc and the general concensus is gyyatso tantra. Surely more than gyalwx color. Personally I have wondered about this for years and i would be appreciative of any ideas expressed by my learned Vajra sisters and brothers on Dharma Wheel.
Gyalwa Gyamtso, Jinasagara, is usually called “semi-wrathful” in the same way Chakrasamvara or Guhyasamaja would be She is extremely wrathful, four-armed, blue-black in colour, black-cloaked, and rides her mule across an ocean of blood amidst a maelstrom of wind and fire.
In the south left is yellow Vajradhatvishvari, who holds aloft a lotus and her emblem of a radiant jewel. I proposed exactly your question to Thrangu Rinpoche maybe 20 years ago and he said no, both 9 and 5 are “Father Tantra”. It seems from a practitioners point of view, it is really an academic issue for scholars. You may know a lot, but if you don’t put it into practice, it’s like dying of thirst on the shore of a great gyatdo.

There are a bunch of distinct Gylawa lineages, as well. We would also appreciate your feedback on Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia. BTW someone mentioned a standing yab-yum Jinasagara – if one looks at those pictures carefully, you will find they are entitled “Guhyasadhana Jinasagara”.
For example, there seem to be two tantric versions of Chenrezig–him and Hayagriva. And in the north right is green Tara, who holds aloft two utpala lotuses.
Because of a gyaowa vow Milarepa had only received four of these nine secret tantric transmissions from his teacher Marpa, who in turn had received them from Tilopa’s disciple, Naropa.
I post the question here, because I understand that he is primarily a Kagyu deity, but Hyalwa may well be mistaken in this. Retrieved from ” http: The Tibetan lineage of this deity stems from Milarepa’s disciple Rechungpa, who was guatso to receive the last five Tantras of ‘the nine-fold teaching cycle of the formless dakinis’ from the Indian mahasiddha Tiphupa.
Love that quote–from one of my favorite books. In one, he looks just like four-armed Chenrezig, except colored red. Majestic [Bot] and 16 guests. I think there are others as well. Paldan Lhamoin her aspect as Rangjung Gyalmo.
I am not sure what this means but Thrangu Rinpoche’s line of this being Father Tantra is based on not its techniques or methods of practice which he agreed could have elements of Mother, Father and non dual tantra but its “tradition”.
The intense Compassion that issues from him is displayed by a wrathful countenance, a Compassion which is indestructable in the face of all obstacles such as the over whelming confusionhatred and Attachment that prevents beings from recognizing their pure nature. In the west top is red Pandara, who holds aloft two red lotuses.
