Dang-ma

A Tibetan word meaning an absolutely purified soul, free from the necessity of rebirth. It is equivalent to the Hindu jivanmukti or the theosophical Adept, Master, or Mahatma. In The Secret Doctrine, Helena P. BLAVATSKY comments on the “Opened Eye” of the Dangma (Stanzas of Dzyan, I, 8), “His ‘opened eye’ is the inner spiritual eye of the seer, and the faculty which manifests through it is not clairvoyance as ordinarily understood . . . but rather the faculty of spiritual intuition, through which direct and certain knowledge is obtainable” (I, 46 fn) and “over which no Maya can have any influence” (I, 45).
