Maybe Dudjom Lingpa was an emanation of Shardza Gyaltsen?

Re: Bodhi seed malas

Afaik the real deal is Ziziphus budhensis! Also Lama Sonam Jorpel told this at a Vajrayogini-wang - but he didn't mentioned the name of it - he said: "the brown rough-ones called bodhi-tsee, not bodhi-seed!" Bodhi-tse is mentioned in the book Dictionary of Tibetan Materia Medica by Pasang Yontan Ary...

Re: Vajrakilaya Practice

Who are the wrong people? If it all don't work without empowerment, etc. where is the danger? What about "self-secret"? I thought it was obvious that I was saying "the wrong people" are simply those without empowerment for the practice. And I wasn't talking in terms of "danger," but rather stating ...

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.
or use: open with pdf reader & it saves as pdf

Hi,

I would like to know how and why is thigle created in Dzogchen {Bon}? And how do you personally understand the concept.

Thank you!
:namaste:
what do you mean with "created"?
or:
why do you think it is created?

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Is the Simhamukha mantra in the tun coming from Ayu Khandro or Jigme Lingpa or...? I have received the lung of Ayu Khandros terma but wasn't entirely sure if this is where the mantra in the tun originates. Both Ayu Khandro's Simhamukha terma and Jigme LIngpa's Simhamukha terma has been translated b...
