Sakya view about Dorje Legpa

Post by cloudburst »

Hello Sakya peeps

Can anybody report on what they have been told about Dorje Legpa? In particular, do your teachers regard him as a Oath-bound, worldly deity, or as an enlightened protector? I'm informally polling different schools' views on the matter.

many thanks!

I have also never read an opinion about it. For context, in Sakya Mahakala is an oath bound protector, he is also regarded as beyond samsara. The name “oath bound” is not a reliable indicator of the status of a given dharmapala—they are all oath bound.

Is Panjaranata Mahakala the main dharmapala of Sakya? By that I mean he can be relied upon regardless of which Sakya yidam one practices?
Observe the difference between the Lord of All Victors, Padmasambhava, and the mahasiddhas of India and Tibet.
