Product Description

LINGDRO, from the biography of King Gesar the Great Lion: The awe inspired laughter of The Dance of Ling A Symphony of Ecstasy.

Description: “The nirmanakaya known as The Great Lion of the World, Jewel Tamer of Foes, never strays from the peaceful space of Dharmakaya. However, there are wicked demons who cannot be tamed by peaceful means and who want to harm the Buddha’s teachings and torment sentient beings. In order to tame them he appeared in a form of inexhaustible wrath, the King of Warrior Spirits. He destroyed the eighteen great demon fortresses, including the four great demons of the four directions. He raised high the victory banner of the Buddha’s teachings and spread happiness for sentient beings without interruption, like the flow of a river.

There is a tradition of making offering of the Vajra dance of The Dance of Ling, A Symphony of Ecstasy as a celebration to fulfill the flawless enlightened intention of the wisdom deities, including the three roots and Dharma protectors, and to satisfy and praise the high position of the hosts of warrior spirits which include the gods, nagas, and nyen. The great illumination of the Early Translation teachings in Tibet in these degenerate times the great pandita Mipham Jamyang Namgyal Gyatso, also known as Jampal Gyepe Dorje, revealed seven chapters of The Dance of Ling, A Symphony of Ecstasy dance text connected with his pure vision revelations of the great being Gesar’s Wondrous Biography. Reting Rinpoche, the Dalai Lama’s regent, composed four additional chapters. Together with the final chapter of auspiciousness, this dance text is made up of twelve chapters …

When the Regent, Reting Rinpoche, was governing over the two traditions of Ganden Palace, the dance master from Taksar Jamtrul Rinpoche’s lineage, Norbu Zangpo, was summoned to Reting Rinpoche’s seat. They revised and codified the expressions of the melodies, steps, hand gestures, and body postures that go along with this dance text.”
