The Dalai Lama's secret temple by Ian Baker

 The Lukhang murals illustrate " the secret" path of the Buddhist tantras in which it is held that one can penetrate the veils of obscured vision and attain enlightenment in a single lifetime or a matter of years. Tantra based its doctrine not on the rejection of agitated mental states, but on their transformation.

As stated in the Hevajra Tantra: " what for others is a source of bondage, in Tantra is a cause of liberation." The final expression of the Tantras is the path of Dzogchen, a school of thought and practice which is based on the recognition of 'kadak', the minds primordial purity. Through the methods of Dzogchen, the practitioner awakens to the blissful radiance of his or her innate Buddha Nature.
