Seng-gé Dradog is the vivid blue of the eternal sky. He stands upon a lotus which arises from a raging ocean of the blood of vow-breakers. Ngak’chang Rinpoche says of this symbolism:
The fact that a lotus could arise from such an ocean is a statement of ultimate hope: even vow-breakers can apprehend space through their own auspices of destruction and thereby return to the sanity of alignment with non-duality. Vow-breakage is a major threat to Vajrayana at this time and therefore the practice of Seng-gé Dradog is extremely important now. Vow-breakage is not new, but the justifications which surround vow-breakage in modern times have all the trappings of philosophical pseudo-epistemological validation and there is therefore need for the energy of Seng-gé Dradog. The lion’s roar needs to be heard in every quarter in order that the mikhas of vow-breakage can be exposed through the energy of pure Dharma.
