Nirmanakaya Garab Dorje

In Progress, Thangkas
Garab Dorje is the semi-historical figure and is the first human teacher of Dzogchen according to Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Prior to Prahevajra or Garab Dorje, the Nyingma school holds that the Dzogchen teachings had been expounded only in celestial realms and the pure lands (Sanskrit: śuddhanivāsa) of the Buddhas.

Sambhogakaya Vajrasattva

In Progress, Thangkas
Vajrasattva is a bodhisattva in the Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhist traditions. The lineage of Dzogchen is traced from the dharmakaya Samantabhadra to the sambhogakaya, which is the five buddha families who are all Samantabhadra’s own self-reflection, the sovereign of which is Vajrasattva. This is the direct mind transmission.
