Zhechen Gyaltsab, 4th
Year of the Female Iron Sheep, 15th sexagenary cycle.
Shechen Gyaltsap was also an accomplished practitioner. He spent much of his life in retreat above Shechen Monastery in eastern Tibet, and achieved many signs of accomplishment. Once he started a three-year retreat based on the Vajrakilaya practice, but to everyone's surprise after only three months he emerged saying that he had completed his intended program. The next morning, his attendant noticed an imprint of his footprint on the stone threshold of the hermitage. Shechen Gyaltsap's disciples later removed the stone and hid it during the Cultural Revolution. Today, it is possible to see it at Shechen Monastery in Tibet. The imprint was an outer sign of his inner realization of the Vajrakilaya practice. (Source: The Great Medicine, introduction, 21)
