image of sambhogakaya Guru Rinpoche?

Postby drodul » Thu Jun 19, 2014 4:43 am

I wonder if someone could suggest a link to an image of Guru Rinpoche in sambhogakaya form? Google doesn't come up with much. Thank you.

Here is a lovely line drawing based on the Lotus Essence Tantra from the Chokling Tersar: http://dawnlhamo.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/finished_thangka_drawing3.jpg

Thank you for your responses. Is it the case that sambhogakaya Guru Rinpoche is always pictured with a consort?

If you mean with visible consort, than of course yes, otherwise he is seldom depicted without consort (kathvanga is a symbol of consort/she is hidden in the form of kathvanga).

Here is an example of sambhogakaya Guru Padmakara without visible consort.

Thank you, Dzoki; that's more what I was looking for, so I could visualize the solitary deity more effectively.

Yes, that really is a beautiful thangka. I recognize most of the deities, but what is the form of Guru Rinpoche in the upper left corner, and who is in the upper right corner?

In the upper left corner, that is not a form of Guru Rinpoche, but Dharma King Trisong Deutsen, and the upper right corner is occupied by Drog Kyeuchung Lotsawa - mahasiddha of Dorje Drolo practice and previous birth of Dujom Rinpoche.
