I know several people who were there.... I go to Samye Ling on Friday for a few days, I'll ask them...circumstances permitting... It's a very sad time here.

Just for the record, I've discussed it with several Lamas, all have indicated that it was indeed Chogling Tersar's Khorwa Dongdruk.
And it makes sense, because that is what the Karma Kagyupas practice.

The first terma of this special diety was from Guru Chokwang. The mantra and appearance of diety has almost no difference.
It's a very powerful diety to purify all negativities, even one drop of the vase water from this practice and clean up many obstructions; if correctly recite 300000 of long mantra, yourself will become a blessful object which benefits everyone who contact you.

Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

Hi,
I'm looking for the Khorwa Dongtruk Texts from a Terma revealed by Guru Chöwang. In english, but especially in tibetan. Does anyone know where to find these? Or the name of the terma/text they're contained in?
Thanks

dechend,

TBRC is going to be your best friend in cases where you specifically want the Tibetan of certain texts. I highly recommend you get an account there if you don't already have one. Not sure how much of Guru Chöwang's works have been translated into English, if any.

This is the entry for the "Collected terma revelations of Guru Choewang": http://www.tbrc.org/#!rid=W1PD45090

And there are 99 results for texts regarding Khorwa Dongdruk: http://www.tbrc.org/#library_BannerSear ... rugs"

However, searching for both terms yields 0 results, so it's possible that the "Collected terma" is somewhat incomplete, and the only terma on that deity in their database is the one from the Chokling Tersar... Does anyone have better luck than I did in finding it (perhaps someone whose grasp of Tibetan goes beyond the syllabic)?

In any case, happy hunting!
