Achi - Pure Vision Practice
Achi Chökyi Drolma is a dharma-protector especially connected to Drikung Kagyu Lineage as she is historically the great grandmother of Kyobpa Jikten Sumgön (1143-1217), founder of Drikung Kagyu. In her lifetime, she was a great yogini respected as an emanation of the tantric deity Vajravarahi. Born in the Drikung area in central Tibet, she eventually settled in eastern Tibet and gave birth and raised sons who were all Dharma practitioners. She made prophecies regarding a future descendant of hers who will greatly benefit beings and these prophecies were fulfilled by her great-grandson Kyobpa Jikten Sumgön.
The special feature of this thangka is that it was painted specifically for a “pure vision” (Tib. daknang) practice of Achi revealed by the previous Gyabra Tritsab Rinpoché who was the regent of Drikung during the tumultuous period of modern Tibetan history. In this practice, Achi is practiced as guru, yidam, dakini and dharma-protector and thus this thangka contains images of these four aspects of Achi.
This thangka is a high quality canvas print mounted on traditional thangka style brocade frame and it comes with a pair of wooden dowels and a thangka “curtain.” The original thangka was painted in the last decade under the guidance of Nubpa Rinpoche and instruction of current Gyabra Tritsab Rinpoche.
