Re: Troma nagmo and rainbow body

If I remember correctly it's the result of the yoga's of the 4th empowerment, which involves a continuation of the mudra practice's of the 3rd empowerment. Just wanted to revise my last statement, I remembered what I actually heard was rainbow body was possible because of the profound method of the...

Re: Troma nagmo and rainbow body

If they attained rainbow body they were practicing trekcho and/or thogal. Perhaps externally it looked as though they only offered mandala, but internally that was not the case if jalu was manifested. Any text to support this? Of course, texts mentioned that trekcho and thogal can results in rainbo...

Re: Mantra siddhi

Pretty much every single text will extol the magical power of the mantra or dharani it describes (the seeing/touching/copying ones are usually dharanis, not mantras) and how it is supreme over all other practices etc etc. That's what the texts say, so lamas repeat it when they give transmission, bu...

Re: Mantra siddhi

Many years ago I was present when someone suggested this to Thrangu Rinpoche and he answered; "without the visualisation there will be no siddhi". /magnus One just needs to recite Vajrayogini mantra to gain all siddhi, this is in the Chakrasamvara root tantra. Can you provide a quote regarding this...

Re: Mantra siddhi

It also says that such a statement is merely used to describe the greatness of the mantra and the text. This is sort of the crux of my question. Some statements glorify certain mantras to grant attainment by relying on the mantra. I am merely trying to discover which mantras are glorified in this w...

Re: Mantra siddhi

One just needs to recite Vajrayogini mantra to gain all siddhi, this is in the Chakrasamvara root tantra. This seems like a misrepresentation of Vajrayoginis mantra in relation to siddhis. See chapter 48 of the root tantra. To recite the mantra, you need empowerment (which can be a lot of detail, i...

Re: Mantra siddhi

What does "accomplishment even outside of sadhana" mean? I should have explained in more detail, but I meant just relying on the mantra without doing elaborate yogas of the two stages.

Re: Finding Your Guru

It took nearly a year of me asking one teacher I have complete confidence in to formally accept me as his student, and he as my guru; and bestow on me the wang, lung and tri. Fascinating. May I ask what this process looked like? How often did you approach them? Did they actually say “no” for the fi...

I've heard meditation on precious human life and impermanence is what motivated Milarepa, omniscient Longchenpa and vidyādhara Jigme Lingpa etc. to make progress in the dharma.

Re: Do any of you use social media to spread Dharma?

Hi Meido,
I enjoy your postings on FB a lot :thumbsup:
Your postings have a sense of refined humility.

But unfortunately I have seen other dharma teachers post stuff in a sort of boastful and flaunting manner.

Asking for Three Root and Yidam sadhanas before finishing ngondro is inappropriate.

That's up to the Lama's judgement that one is asking.

Just my two cents.
