Why do you use the word "God" ? Please explain ?!
Do you then mean Jehowah or Jahwe when you use it?
Do you mean Allah with it ?
Or do you mean Brahma perhaps ?

Wherever you are, that is where the mind should be. Always be mindful, and be your own master. This is true freedom. - Grand Master Wei Chueh

Historical translations. http://www.ogyenling.org/Lineage.aspx

"Divine" is in understanding Dharma.

My understanding is a simple one: No entity anyway. Our purified nature itself. without "OBSCURATIONS". Buddha need not to be find outside.

Next text with the word Dzogchen which can confuse, please.

Who is this guy that made the story for the Dharmafellowship ? Does he mention any sources ? Or does he admit having made it up by himself ?
If you didn't know, it disagrees very much with the existing materials about Pramodavajra and Kukkuraja etc... see for example the scholarly opinion of Keith Dowman


Pramodavajra is not a disciple of Kukkuraja. He lived before the arising of Islam. According to traditional accounts where siddhas have attained psychic powers and can control their life span. One must consider this a reality, and accept that they can have lived very much earlier than what your "Guy" presumes!
