A Brief introduction to the Lineage Refuge Tree of The Dharma Lineage of Adi Buddha Mandala
 

 

Heart Mantra of Patriarch Chen, Original Purity Buddha:
Weng A Hong Ban Zha Gu Lu Yi Ni Tun Zun Xi Di Hong

Heart Mantra of Guru Lin, Vajra Lotus Buddha:
Weng A Hong Ban Zha Gu Lu Ei Wang Die Dong Xi Di Hong

With blessing from lineage Gurus, Buddhas and protectors, the Thangka of the Lineage Refuge Tree of the Dharma Lineage of Adi Buddha Mandala had been constructed in December of 2012. This year is the year of the Dragon, and under the protective blessing of Dharma protectors such as heavenly gods, dragons, etc., this refuge tree Thangka had been accomplished smoothly to represent the continuation of our Dharma lineage so that faithful followers may worship it to receive blessings.

At the top of the lineage refuge tree is the Adi Buddha (Original Buddha), representing the Dharmakaya. The color of this Buddha is blue, signifying the Dharmakaya light that is like a cloudless autumn sky. He embraces his consort whose color is white, signifying the white light that accompanies the blue Dharmakaya light. Below them is the founder of Buddhism, Sakyamuni Buddha. Below him is Padmasambhava, Guru Rin-po-che, the founder of Tantric Buddhism in Tibet. At his right-hand side is his consort Mandarava, and at his other side is his consort Yeshe Tsogyal. Below Guru Rin-po-che are the lineage Gurus of our Dharma lineage as represented by three Root Gurus of Patriarch Chen, and they are Nona Tulku of Nyingmapa at the center, Patriarch Gangkar of Kagyupa at his right, and Patriarch Papong Khyentse of Kagyupa at his left. Below these three patriarchs is the founder of our Dharma Lineage of Adi Buddha Mandala, Original Purity Buddha, Patriarch Chien-Ming Chen, and his holy image is painted according to his inspirational experiences. As a transformation of Manjusri Patriarch Chen appears in youthful countenance, and with a wisdom sword in his hand, he rides on a green dragon.

The main character under the seat of Patriarch Chen is Vajra Lotus Buddha, Guru Yutang Lin. Guru Lin is a transformation of the Four-arm Chenrezig. Below him are five Dharma protectors of our lineage. At the center is Bodhisattva Wei Tuo, at his right is the Great Northern Heavenly King, Vaishravana, and at his left is the Dragon King. The protector to their right is Damchen Dorje Legpa, and to their left is Protector Guan Gong. The lineage refuge tree is also surrounded by many respectful heavenly lady attendants, and ornamented with auspicious clouds and seven treasures. The moon at the top on the right side represents compassion, and the sun at the top on the left side represents wisdom; thus the harmonization of wisdom and compassion in the essence of Dharma is signified.
