Dukhandhi དུ་ཁངྡྷི་པ།

("The Scavenger")

798 – 898 CE

Mahasiddha #25

A low caste sweeper surviving by scavengering thrown-away pieces of cloth and making them into clothes, Dukhandhi - whose name means “he who unites duality” - thought he was prevented from good meditation practice by his need to survive by constantly sewing. His teacher pointed out how he could actualize the meaning of his name by uniting his necessary life experience with his spiritual path, that they are no different. After many years of stitching together spiritual practice with his daily life experience, he became enlightened and a great teacher. Mahasiddha #25
