The Jewel Garland of Fifty Deities compiled by Rigzin Chödrak

His Holiness The Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang has most kindly agreed to confer the entire cycle of deity-empowerments of "The Jewel Garland of Fifty Deities” traditionally transmitted in the Drikung Kagyu Lineage. This cycle of empowerments were first gathered and transmitted as a set by the Twenty-fourth Throne-holder, Rigzin Chökyi Drakpa (Drikung Dharmakirti), the First Kyabgön Chungtsang (1595-1659).

The Jewel Garland of Fifty Deities compiled by Rigzin Chödrak:

The fifty empowerments were compiled by Drikung Dharmakirti [1595-1659], based on The Compendium of Practice Methods, translated from Sanskrit into by Bari Lotsava (1040-1111) a contemporary of Milarepa. Drikung Dharmakirti himself received the empowerments from this source and practiced them. Later, he compiled the empowerments of fifty special deities with whom he had clear signs and experiences of accomplishments during his practice. All of the fifty empowerments are from the new tantra system, wherein there are four tantra-sets: kriyatantra, caryatantra, yogatantra, and mahayoga tantra. The fifty empowerments relate to any one of these four sets of tantra. For instance, the first empowerment is of Buddha Shakyamuni, which is from the kriyatantra. Likewise, the empowerment of Krodacala is from the caryatantra, that of Yellow Prajnapramita is from the yogatantra, and that of Red Kurukule is from the mahayogatantra. Being associated with the four sets of tantra, these empowerments relate to the five buddha families, the wisdoms, five negative emotions, and the activities such as peaceful activity, increasing activity, powerful activity and wrathful activity.
