Combined Accomplishment of the Four Deities – Lha Chi Dril Droup


“At the time of approach, accomplishment and application of activities, this practice of the “Combined Accomplishment of the Four Deities” is indispensable. […] Complete this practice according to its sadhana and commentary, and you will dispel all outer and inner obstacles and receive blessings.”

From the instruction manual (Six-armed Mahakala) by the previous Kalu Rinpoche


“The contemplative practice of the Lama Vajradhara grants the highest accomplishments in this very life. Speedy attainment of the stages of the path depends upon two factors. Dispelling of hindrances and enhancement of contemplative experience. The ultimate method for dispelling outer hindrances is that of the Protector; for inner ones that of Tara. The very best method for the outer enhancement of loving kindness and compassion is the practice of Avalokiteshvara; for the inner enhancement of bliss and heat we practice Vajrayogini. Thus a single session of this practice covers every stage of the path. […] You can accomplish this in three months of undistracted practice. Meditation upon this without fail at each dawn session, brings about ordinary and extra-ordinary accomplishments!”
