Re: Dharani of Glorious Vajra claws / Dorje Dermo

Vajra claws / Dorje Dermo is a Dharani. Yes, but the practice they linked to has mantra in it too. I have the pecha with Dorje Dermo dharani.

Re: is a home made statue acceptable?

The question is about kwan yin, so I believe it is rather about Chinese or Vietnamese tradition than Tibetan. The proportions aren't so important in these traditions. Actually, as I've heard in China and Viet there is a kinda ritual similar with Tibetan "rabne" (invitation of God inside the statue)...

It is very demeritorious to make images of the Buddha, etc., that do not correspond to the proper proportions.

I see, but, is there a tail for kangling in traditional ritual instruments? What would it mean?

Thanks all. If I'd thought to search for "tail" I wouldn't have needed your help!
it is called "chopen" in Tibetan. Try "Byt the Chopen" for example.

Re: Bodhi seed malas

The species of seed that is the recommended one for bodhi seed malas was only recognised as a separate species quite recently and was named Ziziphus budhensis. Obviously, generally Tibetans call some of the specimens of Ziziphus genus as "Bodhi seed". And I believe the junk from dharmashop is one o...
