Dorje Lakpa means ‘oath-bound Benign Thunderbolt’. His feet are naked and he wears his hair in a yogi’s topknot wrapped around a nine-prong vajra. This form where Dorje Lakpa is seen riding a snow lion is a ‘majestic yogi form who rides the vast tracks of sky beyond the mountain peaks. The snow lion represents youthful energy , a type of power which is enlivened by humour. The humour of the snow lion is the non dual humour which transcends seriousness and non-seriousness. There is a wide awake, wide open, wide-eyed quality to the youthful ’emotional astuteness’ of the snow lion. The snow lion carries Dorje Legpa on her back in a graceful yet precise manner, not needing to be ‘swift to the kil with regard to tracking down our deviousness with regard to our vows. The snow lion mount, simply allows Dorje Lakpa the space of vajra humour in which all deviations are hoist on their respected petards.
