They were back then.
I don't think so. Terma probably wasn't accepted by all immediately, but that doesn't really make it in to two camps since everyone accepted Kama.

Re: Connection of Guru Rinpoche and Marpa the Translator

No snga 'gyur rnying ma was already in use by that time. Zurchen Shakya Jungne, who was ten years older than Marpa, coined the term bka' ma to differentiate their early translation tradition from those following the new gter ma traditions, thereby dividing the Nyingma into two camps. The Nyingma ar...

Re: Connection of Guru Rinpoche and Marpa the Translator

I have seen in a text where it has said that Marpa was an emanation of Guru Rinpoche, and Dagmema was an emanation of Yeshe Tshogyal. As I don't remember which text states this, it will be very difficult for me to provide the source. I had always wondered myself, what Marpa's relation was to Guru R...

Re: Troma nagmo and rainbow body

This is what I maybe doubtful. As far as I know, Trechok is Samantha with the view. There shouldn't be any difference for a person who realised/attained the view through other methods and are able to maintain in that view or state all the time. That is not what Trechö is, it most certainly don't de...

Re: Troma nagmo and rainbow body

The explanation is that merit is crucial in actually realising the view. That lama accumulated sufficient merit by persevering in his mandala offering practise and attained the view with no need for pointing out. Is implicit, guru devotion is in his mandala offering practice so he received blessing...

Great. I have read somewhere that Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche wrote a dzogchen commentary to the CPNy. Do you have any information about that?
Chime Pakme Nyingtik contains a Guru sadhana called Vima Ladrub, my understanding is that the Dzogchen commentary is based on the Vima Ladrub.

Tashi delek!

Firstly, I would like to know what is the difference between the mantra versions '...KURU SOHA' and '...KURU YE SOHA'?

And secondly, is there any HYT form or practice of White Tara?

Thanks,

Yes, the Chime Pakme Nyingtik for example.

Re: Troma nagmo and rainbow body

I don't understand why one will need trekchod and togal to attain rainbow body. The chinese site reported that a Nyingma lama who refused to practice any other methods other than mandala offering has attained rainbow body. well, mandala offerings don't need to exclude trechö, just so you know. /mag...
