Lotus Essence Tantra pendant

This pendant contains the entire root text of the Lotus Essence Tantra, a treasure text revealed by Chokgyur Lingpa as part of a popular cycle of teachings known as The Guru’s Heart Practice, Dispeller of All Obstacles (Tukdrub Barchey Künsel). It contains the essence of all teachings, particularly the path of secret mantra. Extremely concise, yet containing all the essential points of Vajrayana, it elucidates the natural state of phenomena—emptiness, mahamudra, the great perfection. This short, essential tantra contains profound teachings and is of extraordinary blessings. 

The late Kyabjé Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche spoke about this tantra as follows:

My guru, my uncle Samten Gyatso, was a hidden yogi and would never talk about himself as being anything special, not a single word.... However, he once confided in me, “I have two things that can truly benefit others: one is the Only Child of All Buddhas Tantra and the other is the Lotus Essence Tantra.” He would chant these two texts a lot and truly felt that the Lotus Essence Tantra was something extremely precious.

All of Samten Gyatso’s followers, from little children all the way up to old men and women with bent backs, would learn the words of the tantra and reading method by heart so that they could recite it from memory whenever they had a free moment, and even when walking or doing mundane tasks. What is more, they had such faith in this text that they would chant it aloud secure in the knowledge that any being who happened to hear it would be liberated.

As for myself, I am always really amazed to read tantras such as this one whose lines are so elegant and concise—it’s truly impressive. “Though you may not know all about visualizations, deities, the profound completion stage, the six yogas of Naropa and so on,” Samten Gyatso would say, “all you have to do is chant this tantra for it includes everything.”....
