Re: Dorje Drollo

Barche lamsel is a prayer to invoke the activities of Guru Rinpoche, so in a general way Drollo is included since that is a form of Guru Rinpoche. It isnt a Drollo practice however. There are many different terma of Drollo, in order to practice them one need wang, lung, and tri from a qualified gur...

Re: Dorje Drollo

I have always been interested in Dorje Drollo. What does the practice look like? Does it consist of a specific mantra? I have been a Ngondro practice for a long time now, but I have not come across anything Dorje Drollo related other than maybe 'Barche Lamsel - the Prayer that dispels all obstacles...

Re: Does the Bön tradition believe we have a self/soul?

This is because among common people, there is an ambiguity between bla and consciousness. I assume by common people you mean Tibetan/Himalayan folk beliefs, right? I thought it was sort of like the fantasy concept of a "shade". A lingering bit of the person that acts like them, but isn't really "th...

Re: LN Ngondro requirements

The reason why Sakyapas insist on empowerment first is that 1) it has to with the Sakyapa theory, articulated by Jetsun Drakpa Gyaltsen, that there are two approaches to entering secret mantra: a gradual one for less fortunate students, which is consistent with the Kadampa/Kagyu/Gelug graduated app...

Re: LN Ngondro requirements

Yes, I believe you. Ngöndro is an advanced practice and I have no clue to why its treated as a beginners practice. /magnus Why do you believe it is an advanced practice? Why would contemplating the Four Thoughts be advanced? Refuge and bodhicitta? Accumulating merit through mandala offerings? Okay,...

Magnus, Either this method came from Chatral Rinpoche or Shuksep Jetsunma Chonyid Wangmo. This is not something He made up on His own.

In the Karma Kagyu Ngöndro you don't do self-visualisation of Vajrasattva... What? What are you talking about? Also, the Karma Kamtsang Ngöndro actually contain a short Vajrayogini sadhana after the guru yoga, but for some reason they always remove it from the translations. Probably because when yo...

Re: LN Ngondro requirements

This is arguably false. If you gave not received empowerment or direct introduction, you have no guru at all. But it is true that Nyingma and Kagyu Lamas give ngondro transmission to people who have not received either empowerment or direct introduction. For the standard Kagyu Ngondro you need a Va...
