Description

Chapter 5 reviews Dudul Dorje's Collected Works, and in particular, his Vajrakīlaya rituals, which form part of his cycle of the Heart Creative Seed, the threefold Amitāyus, Viśuddha, and Kīlaya (snying thig tshe yang phur gsum). Dudjom Rinpoche's treatment of the Dudul Dorje heritage is broached, and also continuities between Dudul Dorje's liturgies and some of those revealed by Dudjom Lingpa.
