The 4 portals of the Yungdrung
and the 5th, the Matrix, the unchanging Mirror (melon Migyur).

Note that Yungdrung (eternal element) and Dzong (Castle), here, resembles the human body which is our retreat hut, with its gates and channels, thru which awareness evolves.

  • The portal of Procreation
  • The Portal of Love / Com-passion
  • The Portal of Pain
  • The Portal of Transcendence
  • And the 5th and central Portal is the Matrix of space, the Mirror of ultimate liberation.

The 4 Portals in gradual development:
Outer, Inner, Secret, Most Secret, whereupon the great entrance and integration with the Mirror is accomplished. This integration where the outer Yin (space) and the inner Yin are indistinguishable, is the indivisible state of all encompassing unchanging space. The great Primordial timelessness of eternal is-ness, the state of deathlessness.
