Kagyu Vajrakilaya

Post by ZopaChotso »

Did any of the Kagyu Lineage masters practice Vajrakilaya? I follow Drikung, so anyone between Tilopa and Phagmodrupa? Jigten Sumgon?

Jigten Sumgon's great grandmother practiced Vajrakilaya.
Don't know if she transmitted it :shrug:

How auspicious!!! Achi is my favorite dharmapala, and while reading your comment just now, I had that exact Monk playing in the background! Do you have a timestamp?

The early "Kagyu" masters, by which I think you mean Tilo, Naro, Marpa, Mila, Gampopa focused on Sarma yidams. Jigten Sumgon, however, was taught Kilaya practice by his uncle, as a young man.

These days Kilaya practice is part of pretty much every Kagyupa's training.
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")
