Yeshe Tsogyal Guru Yoga

Postby dakini_boi » Thu Feb 28, 2013 12:38 am

Anyone know of a Yeshe Tsogyal guru yoga practice? (i.e. receiving blessings/empowerments from the guru as Yeshe Tsogyal)

I actually feel, given the roles of the Samayasattva and the Jñanasattva in tantric practices, that whilst Yeshe Tsogyal is most often used as the most suitable form of Samayasattva, when you look at what attributes are most suitable for the Jñanasattva, it is obviously Guru Rinpoche. Thus the predominance of GR as Guru.

But there are probably exceptions; the Choling Tersar Green Tara comes to mind... probably others too.

Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats

There is actually a Yeshe Tsogyal Guru Yoga. However it's structured like a deity yoga sadhana. It may have been a variation on Yumka. I don't know where I put the text. Khenpo Tsewang gave this to his Palyul students in Maryland many years ago now.

Thank you all for your input. Yes, I'm sure there must be several guru yogas of YT. . . I'm surprised they are not more widely known.
