Machig Labdron (main figure), a the famous 11th century awakened Tibetan yogini (click to enlarge)

Machig Labdrön (ma gcig labs sgron, 1055-1153) was an inspiring 11th century Tibetan yogini whose practice of Chöd profoundly influenced Tibetan Buddhism. Chöd is literally the “severance” or “cutting through” of the existence of ego. Being a Tibetan woman during the time when Buddhist masters were normally Indian and male, her attainments were unique and fascinating. Machig Labdrön‘s story is that of a strong, committed practitioner who had gone through life as a beggar, wife, mother, effectual teacher, and founder of a powerful lineage.

Machig’s remarkable life began with her conception and birth. While her mother, Lady Lungmo Bumcam was pregnant with her, she received many auspicious dreams and signs. One of her dreams was described thus:

“When consciousness entered the womb of the mother on the fifteenth day, she dreamt that four white dakinis carrying four white vases poured water on her head, and afterwards she felt purified. Then, seven dakinis, red, yellow, green, etc., were around her making offerings, saying ‘Honor the mother, stay well our mother to be.’

After that, a wrathful dark-blue dakini wearing bone ornaments and carrying a hooked knife, and a retinue of four blue dakinis carrying hooked knives and skull cups surrounded her, in front of her, behind her, to the left, and the right. All five were in the sky in front of Bum Cham. The central dakini was a forearm’s length taller than the rest.

She raised her hooked knife and said to the mother: ‘Now I will take out this ignorant heart.’

She took her knife and plunged it into the mother’s heart, took out the heart, and put it in the skull cup of the dakini in front of her, and they all ate it. Then the central dakini took a conch which spiraled to the right and blew it. The sound resounded all over the world. In the middle of the conch was a luminous white ‘A’.

She said ‘Now I will replace your heart with this white conch shell.'”

After she woke up, she felt great bliss.

At birth, there was a significant appearance of the Tibetan syllable ‘AH’ on the crown of Machig’s head, and a third eye appeared on her forehead. Her father, Chökyi, the Chief of Tsomer Village in the Labchi region of southern Tibet recognised the syllable as a sign that Machig was a dakini and supported her spiritual development at a young age under the tutelage of Drapa Ngonshe (grwa pa mngon shes, 1012 – 1090). Machig was able to recite The Perfection of Wisdom in Eight Thousand Lines, also known as the Prajnaparamita Sutra, at the age of eight. A ruler of the region who invited Machig to a festival where she recited the Prajnaparamita Sutra was so impressed that he gave her the name Labdrön, which means “the Shining Light of Labchi”.

At thirteen years old, with the passing of her mother, Machig and her sister, Bume, started travelling to study under the many great masters of her time. Soon Machig’s fame for her scholarly knowledge of Buddhism and her impressive recitation skills grew, even outshining some of her own teachers. She was hired by many patrons to recite this sutra in their homes, to attain blessings and spiritual merit for their families. Her popularity was due to her quick recitation of the entire text, which meant the patrons would save on meals served to her during her recitation.

Machig met Kyotön Sonam Lama (Skyo ston bsod nams bla ma), a greatly respected teacher while he was on his retreat in the mountain caves. Only in her twenties, fame of her accomplishments in reciting the Prajnaparamita Sutra had reached him. He advised Machig to stop blindly reciting with only conceptual understanding and instead to explore the sutra deeper into her own mind. It was only then that she truly attained the meaning of inherent existence while reading the chapter on demons. Beginning anew without the impediment of the ego, Machig gave up the comforts of her high societal life to live as a beggar, associating herself with the other outcasts, such as lepers, She roamed the streets directionless, eating anything, and sleeping wherever she could find.

Another significant event in Machig Labdrön’s life was when Sonam Lama gave her an empowerment and she floated through the temple walls while in the state of deep concentration (samadhi). Floating in the air, Machig then angered a Naga King when she landed on the Tree of Serlak, which was rooted on the side of his lake. Feeling insulted, he gathered his fierce army and called upon wild nagas to attack the girl on the tree. Machig, naked and in pure equanimity, calmly offered her body as food for the nagas. Shocked by her courage and compassion, the nagas instead pledged their allegiance and promised to protect Machig eternally. This story gives relevance to the saying “Feeding your Demons” where Machig offered herself as food rather than fight the nagas.

Padampa Sangye (pha dam pa sangs rgyas), a famed Indian master, came to Tibet specifically seeking Machig with the claim that she would greatly benefit other beings. Padampa Sangye’s words of wisdom to Machig were:

“Confess all your hidden faults! Approach that which you find repulsive! Whoever you think you cannot help, help them! Anything you are attached to, let go of it! Go to places that scare you, like cemeteries! Sentient beings are as limitless like the sky, be aware! Find the Buddha inside yourself. In the future your teaching will be as bright as the sun shining in the sky!”

The teachings that Machig received from Padampa Sangye had given her the foundations to later develop and formulate the Mahamudra for Chöd, a religious tradition that she became famous for establishing. Chöd is practiced in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

As prophesied by her teachers in a series of visions, Machig met the father of her children, Töpa Bhadra, an Indian yogi, said to be the emanation of Buddhakapala, the “Skullcap of the Buddha”. Their first union set the room ablaze with a kaleidoscope of five coloured lights spraying out of the house. Their first son was born when Machig was twenty-four, and when she was twenty-five, she gave birth to another son. Consequently, Machig gave birth to a third son and two daughters.

Although previously famous and highly revered for her spiritual attainments, she was now avoided, and had to wander the streets of Tibet with her family in abject poverty. When she was thirty-five, Machig left her family and went back to living as a renunciate, and gave initiations to people.

A few years later at age thirty-nine, Zangri Khangmar, also known as the Red House of Copper Mountain, was established by Machig, and it became her main place of teachings and activities for the rest of her life. Her fame grew and spread throughout Tibet with many learned practitioners arrived to debate with her, and she would always prove her profound realisation flawlessly. It was at Zangri Khangmar that the Deity of Compassion, Tara and her entourage of dakinis came to Machig in a vision. She was told that she was the mind emanation of Prajnaparamita and she should teach. When Machig protested, she was admonished by Tara who said, “Don’t be timid.” With this vision, the lineage between Prajnaparamita, Tara and Machig was directly established, with Machig as the human teacher.

Her children joined her at Zangri Khangmar and soon showed their potential as practitioners. Her younger son was cured of his mental illness, and at fifteen, she sent him to a closed-off cave for several years of retreat, armed with the many teachings and empowerments she had given him . Eventually all of her children, and their children, became key holders of her lineage teachings.

When her fame spread to India, it caused a stir amongst Indian Buddhists. Buddhist theology had only flowed from India to Tibet and not vice versa during Machig’s time. As such, three attained Indian pandits were chosen to test the validity of the practice that she had established. They used their abilities of “fast walk” to visit Machig in Tibet. They questioned and investigated her legitimacy and her Mahamudra teachings of Chöd in a public debate. Machig, in front of hundreds of thousands of people, proved her profound understanding, and clearly proclaimed herself as the reincarnation of Yeshe Tsogyal, the consort of Guru Rinpoche, and her immediate past life as Mönlam Drup.

As Mönlam Drup, she was an Indian prince who became a monk and was scholarly and spiritually accomplished. Having received many visions with repeated requests to help beings in Tibet, he retreated into a cave where his consciousness left his body and merged with a wrathful blue-black dakini to enter the womb of a woman in Tibet. This woman was Machig’s mother.

With the descriptions given, they found the male body of Machig’s previous incarnation in the Indian cave, proving her legitimacy, and she was invited by many to teach in India. Machig refused, as she wished to uphold her commitment to her people in Tibet and preserve the uniqueness of her lineage in Tibet.

As predicted by Machig herself, during her debate with the Indian Pandits, her prophetic passing came true. Machig Labdrön passed into the Land of the Dakinis at the age of ninety-nine. Her legacy was upheld and spread far by her children, their children, as well as numerous disciples, and is still being practiced within Tibetan Buddhism.

Three times with a thundering voice she spoke the syllable PHAT. Then without moving away from the essence of reality, her mind left her body through the brahmanic aperture and in a rainbow disappeared into the vastness of space. Thus, she departed into the expanse of suchness.

Mahamudra Chöd, also known as “The Beggar’s Offering” or “The Cutting Off Ritual”, is a practice grounded in the Prajnaparamita Sutra and directed at the cutting through of ego-clinging and erroneous patterns of thinking. It is usually practiced in fearful places like charnel grounds for the practitioner to overcom fears, and offerings are visualised with the mind, such as offering of our own body as the mandala, in order to cut our attachments to our corporeal existence.

The Guru mantra of Machig Labdron:

OM A HUM MACHIG LABDRON MA NAMAHA

Iconographically, Machig Labdrön is the representation of enlightened female energy and often depicted with the attributes of a dakini holding a drum in her right hand and a bell in her left. With a youthful face and three eyes, Machig has a white body, stands on her left leg, bent in motion, with her right leg lifted high. In conformity to the tradition of a practicing yogini, she wears the Six Bone Ornaments of the charnel grounds. Dakinis with the attribution of the wisdom paramita are depicted as wearing five bone ornaments.

A famous prayer by Machig Labdron:

Wisdom from an Old Lady

For ninety-nine years,
I have worked for the benefit of beings.
now this work is almost complete.

I will not take birth again
in this human realm in a physical form,
nor will I leave behind any remains or relics.

But my emanations in the world will be innumerable;
and many will recognize them.
They will be perceived in different ways,
depending on karma, pure or impure.

In the same way, mind itself has no support, has no object:
let it rest in its natural expanse without any fabrication.
When the bonds (of negative thoughts) are released,
you will be free, there is no doubt.

As when gazing into space, all other visual objects disappear,
so it is for mind itself.
When mind is looking at mind,
all discursive thoughts cease and
enlightenment is attained.

As in the sky all clouds disappear into sky itself:
wherever they go, they go nowhere,
wherever they are, they are nowhere.

This is the same for thoughts in the mind:
when the mind looks at mind,
the waves of conceptual thought disappear.

This body of ours is impermanent,
like a feather on a high mountain pass.
This mind of ours is empty and
clear like the depth of space.

Relax in that natural state, free of fabrication.
When mind is without any support, that is mahamudra.
Becoming familiar with this, blending your mind with it
— that is buddhahood.

Supreme view is beyond all duality of subject and object.
Supreme meditation is without distraction.
Supreme activity is action without effort.
Supreme fruition is without hope and fear.

This old lady has no instructions more profound
than this to give you.”

– Machig Labdron

    I really enjoyed reading this very amazing story about Machig Labdrön. Her mother’s auspicious dream when she was pregnant with Machig Labdrön, her lineage, her powerful practice, and previous incarnations.? Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for this wondrful post.???

    For the last two days the name “Machig Labdron” keeps ringing in my mind. Machig Labdron is an important deity for Mahamudra Chod practice. I heard about “Chod” practice and I just don’t know why but am fascinated with this practice and make some small note from Rinpoche’s teaching Chod practice – (around last 15 mins https://youtu.be/KTD9IkWo5zg)

    It is a direct practice to cutting out ego [ direct antidote ~ not indirect] . It’s sweet and concise but extremely effective for cutting out ego. Chod means to slay or cut. The visualisation is similar to kawang practice but kawang is much more condense whereas Chod practice can generate greater merits and purification at the same time.

    For Chod, it is not so much on how to practice but where to practice this~ the best is wrathful place; a cemetery and sitting on a corpse. A very secret practice in Gelug Lineage. When Kyabje Zong Rinpoche did Chod, at the back of the room can hear sound (as recounted by Rinpoche in the teaching). Many spirits that have been starving and thirst for a hundred years came forward. Instead of asking them to get lost we actually generate great great compassion for them. I hope I can read more on Chod and Machig Labdron.

    I also learnt that: How much fear you have (when practicing Chod) it’s actually how much self cherishing mind you have and how much happiness you have is also how much self-cherishing mind you have.

    Happiness and fear is like two sides of a coin! It arises from the same cause.

    I found her incarnation story here~ The Great Female Master Jetsun Lochen Rinpoche. Very extensive write up and really thank you for that. https://bit.ly/2pxxOrH

    Lastly, with regards to the poem above, may I realise the profound meaning of this poem and especially this :
    “Supreme view is beyond all duality of subject and object.
    Supreme meditation is without distraction.
    Supreme activity is action without effort.
    Supreme fruition is without hope and fear.”

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Wow ……beautiful poem by Maching Labdron.
    She was believed to be an Mind Stream emanation (tulku) of Yeshe Tsogyal, as well as “an emanation of the ‘Great Mother of Wisdom. She was well thought of as a Tibetan tantric Buddhist practitioner, teacher and yogini. Machig had been an Indian yogi in her previous life. Very inspiring and beautiful filled with wisdom, worthy words to remind us all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  4. Stella Cheang on Jan 14, 2018 at 1:29 pm

    What beautiful enlightened words from Goddesss Maching Labdron! It is so fortunate for me to come across this post! Maching Labdron is a renowned Tibetan female tantric master from the 11th Century. She is known for being the yogini who originated the lineages of Chöd practice that is part of the core tradition today. Thank you, Rinpoche, for this very powerful sharing!

  5. Fong on Mar 20, 2017 at 1:07 pm

    In the translated word of Machig Lapdron,

    A demon is anything that obstructs the achievement of freedom…. There is no greater devil than this fixation to a self. To free the mind of ego is to free the mind of fear. So, it is very important for us to exert ourselves to sever our ego, though we may think that it is not present, which makes it all the more difficult.

    “Right now you have the opportunity. Look for the essence of mind – this is meaningful. When you look at mind, there’s nothing to be seen. In this very not seeing, you see the definitive meaning.” -from Machig’s Last Instructions. – https://www.tumblr.com/search/machig%20labdr%C3%B6n

    Relax in that natural state, free of fabrication.
    When mind is without any support, that is mahamudra.
    Becoming familiar with this, blending your mind with it
    — that is buddhahood.

    Which is why we have to learn to be consistent and focused.
    1) Seven facts of enlightenment-
    2) Mindfulness (to remember Dhamma) – “Sathi”
    3) Investigation (of Dhamma) – “Dhamma Vichaya”
    4) Energy – “Viriya”
    5) Joy or Rapture – “Peethi”
    6) Relaxation or tranquility (of both body & mind) – “Passaddhi”
    7) Concentration (of mind) – “Samadhi”
    https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/external-article/samanera-panha-the-ten-questions-a-samanera-should-answer

    Thus, we have to practice to be focused yet relaxed that we are able to meditate correctly.

    Equanimity – “Upekkha

  6. sandra on Mar 26, 2015 at 8:12 pm

    Dear Machig Labdron, please bless us all to have realizations like you too. This life seems listless otherwise..

  7. Joy on Feb 27, 2013 at 3:51 am

    Wow I am so mesmerized by this profound poem on non duality and emptiness, I think. I love Machig Labdron!!! She is naked and bare, she shows us she has no ego. She is beyond time and space and she shows the mind of an awakened one who sees through all reality, who has achieved a mental state of an awakened one which abides in calmness.

    I love this praise the most “In the same way, mind itself has no support, has no object: let it rest in its natural expanse without any fabrication.
    When the bonds (of negative thoughts) are released,
    you will be free, there is no doubt.”

    To me it means when we can let go of all our projected concepts and attachments… then we will truly be free. Free from the entanglements of our own self created polluted deceptions of happiness.

  8. Sharon Saw on Jan 21, 2013 at 4:59 am

    Thank you for this wisdom – that everything is impermanent and the essence of enlightenment is the realisation of emptiness. Easier said than done but at least it is a signpost on the journey and something to contemplate.

  9. mima on May 7, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, this text is very inspiring and beneficial.

  10. Jnaseh on May 4, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    Hello Dear Rinpoche,

    Mother’s Day is coming up here in the USA. I was wondering if you might be able to offer a short sharing (similar to your postings or video responses from the Facebook questions) on the dharmic view of Mothers, Mother Sentient Beings (as I’ve heard you reference at times) in order to deepen the appreciation for Mothers from a dharma-centered ground of understanding.

    Are there certain mantras or practices that would be advisable to do to offer to our Mothers?

    Thank you for considering this question when you get a moment. Happy Upcoming Wesak Celebrations to you and the Kechara community!

    Sincerely,
    Jnaseh

    With our integrity intact, life is less stressful and far less complicated. This is not applying in secular but also in the spiritual practice. If someone who does not have integrity will surely not earn respects from his peers.
    Integrity is very important in our life. It also a good habit for us to cultivate and take as reminder to ourselves that we need to keep hold to our promises in all aspect of chores we are doing.

    Chatral Rinpoche was one of the greatest meditation masters and most compassionate bodhisattvas in the history of Tibetan Buddhism. Chatral Rinpoche explains the purpose and benefit of saving the lives of endangered animals, especially those due to be slaughtered. Great advice by Chatral Rinpoche to develop compassion for all sentient beings . Save animals, save nature, as animal life is precious too. He lived as a humble yogi without the distractions of fame and fortune. He practiced what he preaches without compromise and was beloved , respected by many of all faiths throughout the Himalayan region. He was well known for his compassion for animals through his compassionate action and profound wisdom. He had liberate millions of fish animals and had encourages his student not to eat meat and drank alcohol. It’s a right choice to be on vegetarian , as more animals will be save. It be healthier for us, better for environment and kinder to be a vegetarian.
    Powerful saying by Chatral Rinpoche ……Eating meat in one’s diet is much different than eating flesh to liberate a being through supernatural powers. I am just an ordinary practitioner. I would be committing sin and I would be getting negative karma.
    Thank You for this sharing Rinpoche and Pastor Loh Seng Piow.

    When i first read this article I did wonder too , how this ever happen. Somehow its real, a geological phenomenon where rocks move without human interference. Known as “sailing stones,” the rocks vary in size from a few ounces to hundreds of pounds. One of the world’s strangest phenomena is at Death Valley National Park in Inyo County, California, U.S. Till today, scientists could not have an answer to this strange phenomena where nobody have seen it moving at all.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Animal abuse frequently occurred in a number of area. Its heart breaking looking at the pictures of that extreme animal and neglect case of a dog in this article . The abused dog was packed in a plastic bag and thrown down a trash chute in the 22-story building. So inhuman for someone to do that . Not only that the dog was under un nourishment, thin, dehydrated and looks more than a skeleton. The condition was so bad that the dog needs a blood transfusion. Thanks to the maintenance workers who found Patrick in the neat of time. Looking at those pictures one will be definitely shocking to see his condition. Thankfully, that poor dog named Patrick is recovering well after been nursed by the hospital staffs. Its one of the worst cases of abuse they’ve seen. A dog is men best friends , shouldn’t be abuse or harm them. Give them love, care as if they are one of us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The famous saying “What goes around, comes around”, karma in short is action and every action is preceded by our thoughts. Hence what we think continuously about something will eventually lead to action and the result. Its our mind that is responsible for our karma. Reading this post it has helped me and many of us to understand that we create our own reality or karma. I have book marked these so as i can read it time from time to remind myself. still plenty to catch up.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings with folded hands.

    Chatral Rinpoche was a Dzogchen master and a reclusive yogi known for his great realization and strict discipline. Beautiful and meaningful poems, all I can say the poem is full of wisdom. All animals deserves a life free from fear and pain. They do have hearts to feel the pain, eyes to see and families to care, just like one of us. Animal should be the right to be here, long before we arrive. If only we understand we care for them , we will help and save them or we can liberate them .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this short and powerful teachings . The Four Noble Truths are the most basic formulation of the Buddha’s teaching. They are the truth of suffering, the truth of the cause of suffering, the truth of the end of suffering, and the truth of the path that leads to the end of suffering. It was these four principles that the Buddha came to understand during his meditation under the bodhi tree.
    To cease from evil, To do what is good. To cleanse one’s mind: This is the advice of all the Buddhas. Inspiring saying short yet powerful when we understand it . I will keep this in mind always.

    Meat contains many substances, chemicals, which causes harm to us in the long term and red meat shorten human lives. Large consumption of meat especially processed meat are likely lead to cardiovascular diseases ,cancer and a lot more.

    It is really great to see news write up of factual info like this as evidence and proof that eating meat causes more harm than good. Thank you very much for sharing the informative article.

    Equality before the law is the principle that each individual being must be treated equally by the law and that all are subject to the same laws of justice. Everyone will be given justice by treating them equally nor matter what race and religion or belief, you are. All are equal without any discrimination to equal protection of the law as well. After reading this article I do not agree with Paul Ryan what he commented on the conservative radio show ‘Morning In America’. Racism should not be brought up then, claimed that black men do not want to work and are satisfied with being poor. Remarks involving negative prejudices about people on the basis of race, would spark off misunderstanding and disharmony . It is extremely dangerous to label the rich or poor by skin colour or ethnicity.
    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

    Lama Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje has been recognized and enthroned as the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa. He is a scholar and meditation master, as well as painter, poet, songwriter and playwright. Listening to his message in Bodh Gaya, tells us all how he felt been under the supervision of Tibetan Leadership. He is then not able to perform well as a spiritual leader, as been used by the Tibetan Leadership involving politics. He spoke with courage, of his difficulties he is facing and own experienced of mistreated by the Tibetan Leadership. When politics get involved with religion it becomes complicated and it causes disharmony and harm to many. May Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje continue with his crusades of spreading dharma in the Kargyu lineage. May the differences between all karma Kagyu practitioners be restored and reconciliation .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Absolutely shocking Peruvian archaeologist and researchers found strange elongated skull in a massive graveyard containing tombs filled with the remains of individuals. Amazing discovery by them , has revealed that they may not have come from humans, but from a completely new species. Interesting these skulls are such a mystery, have yet to conclude the findings. Recording to reports on the geneticist’s findings said that it’s from a completely new human-like creature. Aliens do exist and we are not alone on this planet.

    Thank you for your thoughtful sharing. All we really need in life is real love not wealth or material goods. Real love is truly crazy, beautiful and brings so much of happiness, yet it’s one of the most confusing and heartbreaking things in this world.

    The reason it is so rare is because it is so misunderstood. We are not perfect but because we love, we speak, we respect, compromise, care, trust and do our best to make others become happier.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together!
