Here is a point to “bake one’s noodle” excuse the plagiarized quote please. I proposed exactly your question to Thrangu Rinpoche maybe 20 years ago and he said no, both 9 and 5 are “Father Tantra”. In the east bottom is blue Locana, who holds aloft a lotus and her emblem of a golden wheel. Thrangu Rinpoche did not want to refute this view and agreed in theory but otherwise, as is evident in the Gampo abbey site, sticks to his view that Jinasagara is a father Tantra.

He received multiple ggatso, both oral transmissions from Sumatikirti and back to Mahapala and from Tipupa and back to Druppai Gyalmoand Terma transmission from Mikyo Dorje not the 8th Karmapa, but a student of Nyang. Jinasagarameaning the ‘Conqueror-ocean’, is a four-armed manifestation of red Avalokiteshvara with his consort, whose practice is of particular importance in the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

Gyalwa Gyamtso, Jinasagara, is usually called “semi-wrathful” in the same way Chakrasamvara or Guhyasamaja would be In one, he looks just like four-armed Chenrezig, except colored red. His consort, Vajrayogini, is semi-wrathful, with three eyes, and a slightly reddish-white complexion.

I post the question here, because I understand that he is primarily a Kagyu deity, but I may well be mistaken in this. All the best to everyone and may we all be enveloped by the four limitless meditations. He simply answered cryptically – “Gyalwa Gyatso – if practiced properly embraces all the nine yanas without exception”. What about him makes him higher than white Chenrezig? BTW someone mentioned a standing yab-yum Jinasagara – if one looks at those pictures carefully, you will find they gyalww entitled “Guhyasadhana Jinasagara”.


The intense Compassion that issues from him is displayed by a wrathful countenance, a Compassion which is indestructable in the face of all obstacles such as the over whelming confusionhatred and Attachment that prevents beings from recognizing their pure nature.

The colours of each of these ‘Four Mothers’ or consorts correspond to the four directions, they are all peaceful in appearance with two eyes, and are adorned with the divine silk and jeweled ornaments.

Who is online Users browsing this forum: As in an earlier post however, Kongtrul lists this tantra as a mother tantra. I am not sure what this means but Thrangu Rinpoche’s line of this being Father Tantra is based on not its techniques or methods of practice which he agreed could have elements of Mother, Father and non dual tantra but its “tradition”.

Jinasagara is a Highest Yoga Tantra practice–so you could say it’s “Higher” than other Chenrezig practices because the view of Highest Yoga Tantra is contained and conveyed in the practice–when one enters into relationship with the sadhana, this becomes clear. And in the north right is green Tara, who holds aloft two utpala lotuses. But while the Dalai Lama is traditionally identified as an emanation of four-armed white Avalokiteshvara Tib.


Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. He is adorned with the five divine silk garments and eight jeweled ornaments of a sambhogakaya deity.

The way the body mandala is invoked gyatsi the nine deity mandala is like Chakrasamvara i. Essentially the difference in the nine and five besides the deities in the outer inner and secret practices really comes down to the five deity mandala being a “short” secret terma line whereas the nine is the conventional long line which Bokar Rinpoche compared to Kalachakra, Hevajra, Chakrasamvara and the like.

In the Kamtsang, the fyalwa armed form is “Sahaja Jinasagara. The Tibetan lineage of this deity stems from Milarepa’s disciple Rechungpa, who was destined to receive the last five Tantras of ‘the nine-fold teaching cycle of the formless dakinis’ from the Indian mahasiddha Tiphupa.

From the viewers left to right are: With his first two hands palms-folded he clasps a blue wish-granting gem in front of his heart, while with his second pair of right and left hands he holds aloft a golden five-pointed vajra and a red lotus.

Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified. Because of a restrictive vow Milarepa had only received four of these nine secret tantric transmissions from his teacher Marpa, who in turn had received them from Tilopa’s disciple, Naropa. This was passed down the lineage, and Karma Pakshi later also received transmission of certain elements directly from Amitabha and the Dakinis, according to the traditional accounts. Rechungpa condensed these transmissions, and they came down to the Kamtsang via the first Situpa.
