Khenpo Samdup in Vancouver (July 14-15 & 21-22)

Khenpo Samdup will be conducting retreats on Dzogchen (July 14-15) and Phowa (July 21-22). Below are the contents of an email that was recently sent out. (Please Note: These events will not be webcast, as Khenpo indicated that the teachings are secret and the Phowa is a closed retreat.) Dear Dharma ...

Re: Bhadrakalpika Sutra

Thank you, Norwegian. As it was pointed out to me by both a khenpo and a translator friend, Drukpa is most likely དྲུག་པ་ (drug pa), and thus སངས་རྒྱས་དྲུག་པ་སེངྒེ་ was erroneously read as "Buddha named Drukpa Senge" rather than the obvious "Sixth Buddha named Senge." Drukpa is ordinal, not part of ...

Name of the future 6th Buddha, currently Karmapa

Does anyone here happen to know either the Sanskrit, Uchen, or Wylie spelling of the 6th Buddha's name (the one after Maitreya that the Karmapa will supposedly become)? I know it's said to be in the Bhadrakalpika Sutra, but so far I've only been able to find the Anglicized, phoneticized versions of ...

Re: Bhadrakalpika Sutra

Could you possibly tell us the Sanskrit name of the 6th Buddha (the one after Maitreya)? In the Tibetan tradition this is said to be variously Senge (Wyl. seng ge; Skt. Simha), Drukpa Senge, or Senge Namdrel. Seeing the original Sanskrit from the Bhadrakalpika Sutra would help clarify the words behi...

Re: Namo Gurubhya Pronounciation?

Personally I learned goo-roo-byah, but I've also seen texts where it's written as gurubhye (i.e. goo-roo-byey). I think it has to do with the proper vocative case in Sanskrit. When I do prostration I use gurubhya out of habit. I'll use gurubhye when I see it in av text. The vast majority of my lamas...

Re: Short Sukhavati Aspiration

Up until now, as far as I knew, the short Dechen Mönlam we recite in Drikung lineage was excerpted from the longer and much more detailed one composed by the 1st Karma Chagme Rinpoche, Raga Asye. When there is more time set aside to dedicate our roots of virtue, the longer Chagme prayer is often use...

Re: Dzogchen and Mahamudra Practice

Fivefold Mahamudra is just as much, if not more so, a framework or style of practice. You can see this is historically the case as one of the FFM sadhanas by Gyalwang Rinchen Phuntsok has Chenrezik as yidam, rather than the usual Chakrasamvara-Vajrayogini. As Garchen Rinpoche has been known to say, ...

Yes, but Achi was a great grandmother from the father's side and she was for sure buddhist just like her son. She was also supposed to be prophecised in chakrasamvara tantra.

Re: 5th Annual USA Drikung Kagyu Monlam: June 9-10

There's probably also an Ekavira (i.e. Chakrasamvara only) form or two somewhere. Just as Vajravarahi gets her own sadhana without the Yab, Chakrasamvara would have a sadhana without the Yum, though in both cases I do believe the khatvanga represents the absent figure. HAR says that this 11-armed ya...

Re: Differences between Vajravarahi practice in Kagyupa schools

Phadampa (d.1117) and Nyang Ral (1124-1192) were roughly contemporary, though they can't have met physically due to the former's death preceding the latter's birth (at least according to Rigpa Wiki's dates). One could argue that since Nyang Ral was recovering terma hidden by Guru Rinpoche that those...

Of course there is, there are many termas featuring this kind of Vajrayogini, Dujom Tersar has one - in Khandro Thugtig, there is one in Dudul Dorje´s Terma, one in Namcho etc. I can personally attest to there being red Vajravarahi in the Namchö term...

Re: Deciphering Tibetan Buddhist titles?

Gyatso = "ocean," and is usually a name.

Jamyang = "gentle speech, sweet-voiced," a.k.a. Manjughosha (an alternate name for Manjushri). It's also a commonly used Tibetan name.
