The Vajra Dance of the Three Vajra’s is one of three Vajra Dances based on Upadesha teachings first transmitted in 1990 by Dzogchen master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. Part of the Longsal cycle, its complete title is The Light of the Precious Lamp – The Symbolic Manifestation of the Dance of Vajra That Liberates the Six Classes of Beings in the Six Pure Dimensions.
The Dance of the Three Vajra’s is a symbolic dance representing the three dimensions of our existence and their non-duality with the state of all enlightened beings. The intoned syllables harmonize and purify the three gates of our existence: body, voice, and mind.
Up to six females and six males can dance and sing together on a large mandala of five colors representing the correspondence between the internal dimension of the individual and the outer dimension of the world.
The colorful costumes occasionally worn by the dancers are optional.
Vajra Dances are sacred dances and presented as such. In all Vajra Dances, by moving with the body, singing mantras with the voice, and entering into a state of contemplation with the mind, the three main aspects of our existence are balanced, producing serenity and awareness.
This tutorial of the Dance of the Three Vajras reflects our current understanding of the movements and mudras, based on oral and written instructions of the Dzogchen master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. It is intended as an aid for those who have followed courses with qualified instructors.
The Dance of the Three Vajra’s can be integrated within any spiritual path and can also be practiced by those who have not received direct transmission from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
