SOURCES O F T HE M A JO R TAN TRIC SCRIPTURES According to the history of the laniric scriptures, most of the tantras of the New Translation School of Tibet—such as Guhyasamaja and Kalacakra and the tantras belonging to the di­ vision of Outer Tantras—were expounded by Sakyamuni Bud­ dha. But the tantras of the three Inner Tantras of the Old Translation School did not originate with Sakyamuni Buddha. The original tantras of Mahayoga and Anuyoga first appeared in the human realm when they were received by a group of five Buddhist adepts called the Five Excellent Beings (DamPa ’i Rigs-Chan Dra-Ma INga) from Vajraparii Buddha in a pure vision on M t.

Likewise, Anuyoga presents the two truths: the aspect of appearances as the relative truth, Samantabhadra, the mandala of the three divine seats (gDan-gSum), and the aspect of emptiness as the absolute truth, Samantabhadn, the mandala of primordial suchness (Ye JibZhin-Pa). In Ati also, the aspect of appearances is the relative truth, “ appearances of the basis” (gZhi-sNang), the spontaneous accomplishment, and the aspect of emp­ tiness is the absolute truth, ultimate sphere at the basis (gZhi-dByings), the primordial pure essence.

According to the scriptures of tantras and sadhanas one trains on two yogas: the yoga with characteristics (mTshan-bChas) and the yoga without characteristics (mTshan-Med). (a)In the yoga with characteristics, one trains on two stages, the Development Stage{bsKyed-Rim) and Perfection Stage (rDzogs-Rim): (i) In the Development Stage one meditates on the un­ ion of one’s three doors, the body, speech and m ind, with the three vajras of the deities by emphasizing mainly the development stage with the visualization of the mandala through the threefold contemplations (Ting-’Dztn gSum).
