Diamond Holder - Dorje Chang

(tib: Dorje Chang / skt: Vajradhara)

Diamond Holder represents the essence of all Buddhas, the union of space and bliss. He is the direct contact with enlightenment and holds the complete enlightened transmission of all the Buddhas. The ultimate source of the Kagyu Lineage, Diamond Holder passed the teachings directly to the great Indian yogi Tilopa. Tilopa passed these teachings to his student Naropa and Naropa to his student forming an unbroken lineage of yogis to the 1st Karmapa born in 1110 AD. The Karmapa became the first conscious incarnate of Tibet and has held the transmission to the present 17th Karmapa Thaye Dorje. In the lineage, Diamond Holder is an expression of the enlightened state of the Karmapa, and as the teacher either appears in his human form as Karmapa with his black crown or as Diamond Holder. There are many guru-yoga practices involving the Karmapa. All of the yidams taught by Buddha Shakyamuni belong to the five Buddha families, which are all one with the Buddha Diamond Holder. He is blue with arms crossed at his heart holding a dorje and bell representing the union of space and joy. Sitting in the Vajra position on a pedestal and lotus throne he wears the ornaments of the Joy State.

Meditating on Diamond Holder will help identify our Buddha nature and develop other useful qualities of enlightenment.
