Hrīḥ. Within the luminous dharmakāya, unfabricated and beyond concepts,
The manifold maṇḍalas of the infinite sections of tantras are perfectly complete.
To the three-kāya guru, beyond meeting and parting,
I offer praise relatively as a mere illusion.
Texts related to Tiklé Gyachen (thig le'i rgya can), The Sealed Quintessence, the innermost secret guru practice of the Longchen Nyingtik cycle:
- The Shower of Blessings: A Prayer to the Lineage of The Sealed Quintessence, the Innermost Secret Guru Practice by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo
- The Sealed Quintessence: The Innermost Secret Guru Practice of the Heart-Essence of the Vast Expanse by Jigme Lingpa
The innermost secret guru practice of the Longchen Nyingtik cycle focuses on Longchen Rabjam and is considered an indispensable preliminary to Dzogchen practice. Jigme Lingpa revealed the practice some time around 1761, during his second three-year retreat, then kept it secret for five years.
- Music Sprung from Clouds of Merit: The Concluding Ritual of the Feast Offering for The Sealed Quintessence, the Innermost Secret Guru Practice by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo
Jamyang Khyentse spontaneously composed this feast-offering liturgy for the Sealed Quintessence, or Tikle Gyachen (thig le'i rgya can), when he was just sixteen years old. He later revised the text and made it available at the request of some students.
