Green Tara Empowerment and Teachings
Rinpoche received the empowerment for Dudjom Lingpa's Tara practice from Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche. There are many beings who accomplish buddhahood with the support of a male body, but Tara is unique in that she made a vow to accomplish buddhahood in a female body and work for the benefit of sentient beings in that way.
Through the practice of Tara we can achieve all supreme and common siddhis. Tara is the supreme deity for accomplishing the object of our desires, or put another way, for accomplishing enlightened activity.

Saraswati Empowerment and Teachings
The Great Treasure Revealer Dudul Dorje's Red Saraswati practice is found in the Rinchen Terdzo. Rinpoche received the complete Rinchen Terdzo empowerments twice, once from Dodrupchen Rinpoche, and again from Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche, who had in turn received them from Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche.
Saraswati is similar to Tara is many ways, but she is a deity of knowledge and wisdom just like Manjushri, and is sometimes considered the consort or companion of Manjushri. Saraswati is a revered deity in many Buddhist and non-Buddhist traditions.
