A commentary to the practice of Vajrayogini composed by Kyabje Pabongkha Rinpoche—as revealed to him directly by Vajrayogini herself.

THE EXTREMELY SECRET DAKINI OF NAROPA

Vajrayogini Practice and Commentary

Pabongka Rinpoche David Gonsalez

The Extremely Secret Dakini of Naropa has become the basis for almost every subsequent Vajrayogini commentary in the Gelug tradition. Kyabje Pabongkha’s commentary is both very thorough in its presentation and deeply inspiring, providing rich detail on essential elements of Vajrayogini practice:

  • all eleven yogas of the generation stage
  • the transference of consciousness
  • tsok offering
  • left-sided conduct
  • and many other auxiliary practices

There is also a stunning explanation of the completion stage that provides many extraordinarily profound methods unique to the practice of Vajrayogini. The second half of the book contains several sadhanas for the practice of Vajrayogini, including six-session guru yoga as well as two sadhanas on the transference of consciousness.

The Dechen Ling Practice Series from Wisdom Publications is committed to furthering the vision of David Gonsalez (Venerable Losang Tsering) and the Dechen Ling Press of bringing the sacred literature of Tibet to the West by making available many never-before-translated texts.
