On the morning of March 17, 1714, Chögyal Terdag Lingpa said, “I must take seven steps toward the East”. He then rose and after walking seven steps, sat down cross-legged and, as his Last Testament, said:
“Appearance, sound and awareness are deity, mantra and dharmakaya,
Infinitely pervasive as the display of the kayas and primordial wisdom.
May practitioners of the great, profound and secret yoga,
Remain inseparable from the innermost one taste awareness of wisdom mind.”
He then said, “Now the dakinis have arrived to usher me on” and raised his hands as if playing the damaru and bell and with a contemplative gaze, sitting in meditation posture, passed into Parinirvana amidst many wondrous omens.
