Re: Shenpen Ösel

Yep, 14 issues, 15.5 MB. Do you want them all? E-mail address?

I'm not here for long today, so it could be a day or so before I get round to it.

Happy to help!

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

... The short ngondro actually is from the Troma cycle of Dudjom Lingpa. I am actually quite confused by this. I know of the preliminary for the Khandro Thugtig part of the Tersar, with the unusual feature of the lama being in the form of Orgyen Dorje Chang or Pema Garwang; a preliminary in which G...

Black fringe

If "fringe" is indeed the word, then what is the black fringe-hat worn during some kinds of chöd practice? Am I right to think that it is part of the zhije tradition? Is it used in other chöd traditions? What is the significance? And what is the proper name for it? In case of doubt, here is a pictur...

These days, I pretty much stop listening any time something vaguely spiritual has "quantum" in the title, to be honest.
Totally agree.

Re: That tassely thing that hangs down

Thanks for the thought, Javier. In fact the tail isn't for a damaru - I have tails for both my normal and chöd drums. It's for the kangling. Plenty of people seem to use kanglings without a tail, but it seems like a nice idea to have one.

That tassely thing that hangs down

... like you have on a damaru. I'm looking for one to go on my kangling.

Where can I get one? You may guess that part of my problem might be that I don't know what it's called.

TIA, as netizens say.

Re: Full Biography of Kunzang Dechen Lingpa

Really good, thanks, but one weirdness: my browser displayed it OK, but the download came without a file extender. I guessed at *.pdf, which was correct. If anyone else has the same problem and doesn't know what to do, add .pdf to the file name.

Apparently Thaye Dorje has advised his students to stop saying aspiration prayers regarding the rebirth and recognition of the Shamar tulku. ... Oh wow!

Re: Damaru maintenance

One of my teachers recommends putting it in the sun sometimes. And storing it vertically. I'm late to this thread, but as has already been said, I'd be very cautious about putting it in the sun, unless it's a really weak and watery sun such as you typically get when it's not raining in Ireland.

Re: Alternative to possibly toxic metal kapalas

I had this problem - the taste told me there was something wrong. So I painted the inside with polyeurethane varnish. Even a few years later the new bad taste was disgusting. It was OK after about 20 years. (Not exaggerating.)

Think before painting, that was my lesson that I pass on to you now!

Re: Guru Rinpoche´s leaving of Tibet

One might tentatively entertain the idea and timidly express the remote possibility that Samten G.

I speak as one who has ...
