Re: How to raise Wangdu?

"Raise" wang-du? I've never heard of that. Do you mean "wang-thang?" We usually say one "increases" wang-thang.

Re: Did the 84 mahasiddhas authorize others to teach?

And a few ones of them - according to Buddhist sources - were actually non-Buddhists. AFAIK the non-Buddhist ones are not described as having actually attained Mahasiddhi. Read any book on the 84 mahasiddhas. A few of them where not Buddhists but attained the same level of realisation. /magnus
