Attending the Course:
What is Vajra Dance?
The Dance of the Vajra is a result of the profound meditation of the Dzogchen master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
The master received the terma “The Vajra Dance Liberating the Six Classes of Beings into the Six Pure Dimensions” from 1989 on.
“Vajra” is a Sanskrit word and means diamond.
In the Dzogchen teaching the Vajra is a symbol of our essential nature, which is pure, clear and immutable like a diamond.
Practicing the Dance of the Vajra one can discover this real nature by being in the state of contemplation; and one can learn to maintain and stabilize this knowledge not only in sitting meditation but also being in movement. In this way it can become part of our daily life.
Since 1991 Chögyal Namkhai Norbu has taught four different Vajra dances.
While all four dances harmonize the three main aspects of our being – body, energy (or voice) and mind – each dance has its own specific characteristics.
The “Dance of the Vajra that Benefits Beings” is a symbolic dance of compassion.
It is more related to our physical level.
It frees the tensions related to our conditioning by different emotions
