The Four Deities practice is one of the central practices of the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. Combining the four deities of 6-Arm Mahakala, Vajrayogini, Chenrezig and Green Tara, the Four Deities practice is considered to be so profound because it is an indispensable support for dispelling all outer and inner hindrances, and for receiving blessings and is said to contain everything necessary for the swift attainment of liberation and enlightenment.

“The contemplative practice of the Lama Vajradhara grants the highest accomplishments in this very life. Speedy attainment of the stages of the path depends upon two factors. Dispelling of hindrances and enhancement of contemplative experience. The ultimate method for dispelling outer hindrances is that of the Protector; for inner ones that of Tara. The very best method for the outer enhancement of loving kindness and compassion is the practice of Avalokiteshvara; for the inner enhancement of bliss and heat we practice Vajrayogini. Thus a single session of this practice covers every stage of the path. You can accomplish this in three months of undistracted practice. Meditation upon this without fail at each dawn session, brings about ordinary and extra-ordinary accomplishments!”

About the author

Lama Tsewang

Karma Tsewang Samdrup first became a sramanera (novice monk) in April of 1977. In 1982 Venerable Kalu Rinpoche allowed Tsewang to enter his first Canadian three year retreat near Vancouver, British Columbia. At the age of five, his son expressed interest in becoming a monk, so they both ordained as shramanera in 2004. During the summer of 2005 Lama Tsewang again took Gelong (Bhikshu - full monk) vows. Realizing that many Western monastics do not have the support to fully pursue their study and practice of the Dharma, Lama Tsewang has since graciously opened his home with a view to create a monastery for Western ordained, the Vancouver Monastic Center. The monastery is open to Western monks of any recognized Buddhist monastic lineage, though the education and training is in the Tibetan tradition.
