Re: Narak Kong Shak Questions

Narag Tongtrug is from Mahayoga and Anuyoga yes? Not even directly related to the Semde cycle? If that’s the case, then if you’ve received Transmissions from a authentic Lineage Holder ‘higher’ than Anuyoga, then you can just do the said ‘higher’ practices—‘higher’ yet ‘simpler’/more suited to a ‘s...

Re: Narak Kong Shak Questions

So, back to Narak Kong Shak... ... I'm reading the translation and guide by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo on Lotsawa House. It's pretty clear how this could stand on itself. I'm presuming one can put it into a tsok where normally puts in additional confession and atonement prayers? Yes, you do it before ...

Re: Buddhahood in This Life Transmission: 09/15/17

I think this is the transmission of "Buddhahood in This Life", at least I haven't seen any indication that there will be something else like Nyida Khajor tantra. /magnus This is what is they've put up on the FB event page Saturday the 21st of September 9:00 - 12:00 lung of Dreltig chenmo (with brea...

Wow if that is genuine that is extremely old.
Not necessarily old, I seen a lot of statues on ebay that looks old (with a sign like that) but exist in multiple copies.I think hey do a lot of copies of old Tibetan statues in China.

Re: Iconography identification question

I know what you mean - but if it was the wrathful mandala wouldn’t you then have the blue Dakini in the east, then blue-green, green and so forth? Though the problem with thinking that it contains the three roots of a terma cycle is that the dakini ought to be in the east for that and the guru in t...

Re: Iconography identification question

i do not know the tradition but searching for Chemchog shows a lot of blue Yum, etc. You’re right. Interesting. Previously I’d only seen Chemchok images where the consort was the same color but a lighter shade Simhamukha as Khandro, even red, isn’t going to help identify which cycle this three root...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

What would be the best (online) material to buy for correctly learning mandarava practice? You need the big sadhana book, it contains short, medium and long versions of the sadhana. You can buy it as an e-book. Mandarava Tsalung Practices, also contains a long teaching on how to do the long sadhana...

Re: Taking Apart Ngondro

I'm curious where spending time on individual parts of the ngondro being a problem came from. Thus the question. What makes you think it’s a problem? Because when I practice with a dharma brother he says: this is a problem. Group practice should be done in a traditional way, when you are alone it i...

Re: Pausing sadhanas

I'm wondering how many people when practicing alone will pause their recitation to really engender the meaning of a particular section in their mind. Is this common/recommended? I do this all time. Recently I started reciting in English and that makes it even easier to ponder the meaning of the tex...

the text describes him as red in color and youthful, hence my asking for an image.
It is "reddish white", that is his most common appearance.

Thanks JD for your Reply!

I'm regularly doing riwo sangchö practise and referred to the Pema Tötreng Tsal summoned therein

That isn't a particular form in riwo sangchö you can do the form you are familiar with.

Re: texts/teachings on problems of alcohol

So I know there are some texts and teachings on the problems of smoking (e.g., from Guru Rinpoche) -- I was wondering if there was anything similar about the problems of consuming alcohol? I was looking for some texts/teachings which I could use as a contemplation on this. I guess you heard the sto...

Re: Contemplation

My question is, how big a role does contemplation take in your practice? I have discovered lately how important contemplation is after decades of putting very little emphasis on it. If you actually spend 100 hours on for example the four mind changing's it will have a big effect on your practice. T...
