Re: Meat Eating Mantras

The best mantra to use is the six syllables of Samantabhadra. A A Ha Sha Sa Ma? A Ah Sha Sa Ma Ha? Is that for Dzogchen practioners or for everybody? Are you supposed to say it 3, 7, 21 times, or just once? Both versions are correct. You can say it once or as many times as you like. When you say it...

Re: Mandala Question

Thanks for the reply. I was looking on Rigpawiki and it said that the Nirmanakaya Mandala consists of the realm of the gods so I guess not sure when it comes to the Sambhogakaya Mandala if it corresponds to a particular realm (like one of the Five Pure Realms). I remember somewhere reading like Akin...

Mandala Question

Hello,

I was wondering if a Mandala belongs to any one of the 31 Planes of Existence? Perhaps one of the Five Pure Abodes......not really sure.

Thank you.

Re: Vajrasattva Question(s)

Does anyone know if there is available a Vajrasattva Guru Yoga (Seven Limb Prayer)? I tried searching the internet but mostly only came up with Sadhana/4 Opponent Power type stuff.

Thank you.

Help with translation

Hello,

I was wondering if someone can translate ‘I make offerings to the Buddha, to the Dharma, and to the Sangha’ into Tibetan Phonetics?

Thank you.

Re: Vajrasattva Question(s)

Is there a main differentiation as to how something is visualized in Yoga Tantra as to how it’s visualized in HYT?

Thank you.

Vajrasattva Question(s)

Hello, I was wondering what class of Tantra Vajrasattva is associated with? I’m assuming he is Vajra Lineage? Also isn’t there something like if you have received an initiation for a deity in one class of Tantra then you can self-generate or visualize yourself as any deity from that class? Thank you.

Re: HHDL Avalokiteshvara empowerment

Does a Jenang allow you to practice the (subsequent) deity with generation of yourself as the deity and everything like that or is it sort of just an additional blessing?

Thank you.

Element Seed Syllable’s (Mandala)

Hello,

I am having a difficult time locating the seed syllables for ‘E,’ ‘Lam,’ and Sum,’ as they pertain to the elements of a mandala. If any knows where I can find these please let me know.

Thank you.

Re: Om Ah Ra Ba Tsa Na Dhi

Have you learned the Migtsema? You might enjoy the melody.
Yes, I have learned it and recite with Ganden Lha Gyama. Informally I recite Tsongkhapa’s shorter mantra.

Re: Om Ah Ra Ba Tsa Na Dhi

Would it be possible to recite the mantra with faith and devotion towards Lama Tsongkhapa (instead of Manjushri)? Currently I have been reciting Om Ah Guru Vajra Dhara Sumati Kirti Siddhi Hung but would prefer a shorter mantra.

Om Ah Ra Ba Tsa Na Dhi

Hello,

I was wondering what the idea behind the mantra Om Ah Ra Ba Tsa Na Dhi is because I have seen it in Lama Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga (I guess you would say associated with him) but I thought it was Manjushri’s Mantra?

Thank you.

Ganden Lha Gyema (Text Format)

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knows if there is available a Ganden Lha Gyema text in I think what you would call Pecha format or the usual Tibetan text type format?

Mental Body in Divine Realms

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knows what the mental body is called in the Form and Formless Realms?

I’ve come across Gandhabba and Manomaya Kaya but I’m not sure if any of these are correct.

Re: Role of meditative absorption in Tibetan Buddhism

Maybe I'm not remembering correctly but I thought the jhanas are accessible after the 6th stage of shamatha. stage 5 is still divided concentration, stage 6 is much less divided as subtle obstacles begin to be overcome. 7, 8, 9 are all varying degrees of one pointed concentration - 7 and 8 still ha...
