Re: Empowerments are for life?

Vajrasattva most certainly requires transmission. At the very least one needs the reading transmission of the 100 syllable mantra. This transmission is essential for all Vajrayana practitioners in general but has special emphasis in the Nyingma transmission. no. hh jigme phuntsok has a vajrasattva ...

Re: Terma of Adzom Drukpa

I'm doing a green Tara practice from the The Treasure of the Vajra of Clear Light ('od gsal rdo rje'i gsang mdzod) of Adzom Drukpa. Seems quite a few people engage in the practice. I'm curious about this terma. What else is in this terma? Any story related to it? https://treasuryoflives.org/biograp...

Re: Troma nagmo and rainbow body

So it is said that thirteen of the initial practitioners of the Dudjom troma nagmo sadhana attained rainbow body. And more attained it in the subsequent generation. What makes this mantra/sadhana/deity so special that it can lead to that, as opposed to all other mantras? Can Vajrakila do the same f...

Re: Tongue touching palate in Dzogchen?

In Dzogchen meditation does the tongue have to touch the roof of the mouth, or does it simply not matter? I won’t be able to see my lama for a while so I thought to ask here. I am kind of not paying too much attention to it for right now, just letting the tongue just do what feels right. It depends...

Re: gaze/open eyes/closed eyes

I see, thank you. My confusion arose from something I read Malcolm say a long time back, about how you are supposed to be in the state of contemplation throughout the practice, but I suppose that is when you have enough stability to be capable of such a thing.

No, since they are not a part of either Jigme Lingpa's or Patrul's sungbum (collected works).
