Melodious Drum to Dakini Land provides a verse-by-verse commentary on the extensive dedication prayer for Vajrayogini in the Naro Kachö tradition. The prayer itself was composed by Tsarchen Losal Gyatso, the enlightened sage of the Sakya lineage, while the commentary was composed by Yangchen Drupai Dorje. The commentary is both extraordinarily accessible and extremely lucid, revealing the entire paths of Vajrayogini’s eleven yogas of the generation stage and the central channel path of the completion stage. Through studying and assimilating the sublime contents of this remarkable text, the reader will be led through entire range of one of Tibet Buddhism’s most revered practices while being gently guided by the eloquence and rapturous display of these two authors’ deep devotion and realization of the “Venerable Mother of Dakini Land.”

Composed by Yangchen Drupai

Yangchen Drupai Dorje (1809–1887) was one of the foremost and highly revered Gelug lamas of his day. He was the heart-disciple of Ngulchu Dharmabhadra (1772–1851), who was himself one of the most influential and respected lamas of his time. The material in this book is restricted. This book may be read only by those who have received a complete initiation into any highest yoga tantra practice.
