The image of the Jewel Mirror came to Zhaxi Zhuoma in a dream. It was such an unusual and vivid dream that she told her vajra master, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, about it only to have His Holiness laugh and say, “But of course, that’s the magical Buddha-dharma that I have been trying to teach you. Use that image as a means of expounding the Dharma!” The sun and the moon together are used as symbols for the highest Buddha-dharma. They are symbols for the Dharmakaya or the Adharma Buddha as well as for nonduality and attainment.

Brief introductions to a few of the leaders in these transmissions are included on this web site as well as a lineage chart showing how all of these methods originated from the same holy source, Dorje Chang Buddha.
