Prayer Wheel

Does anyone know where i can find a bon prayer wheel? Do they exist, as i haven't been able to find one any where.

I presume that apart from spining it counter clockwise the mantra inside would be the 'om ma tri' mantra.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Simhamukha Practice:

Rimpoche says that for sending away negativities we should only do the action mantra reversed 3 times- does he mean each time we do a session of simhamuka practice?

Dorje Drollo

I think ChNN gave the lung for the main root mantra in yesterdays retreat, but not the action mantra. I presume that without the lung for the action mantra i cannot do that part. Is the action mantra necessary to make the practice more effective?

Re: sang and serkyem practice

Hi Greg, when you say purification practices- which ones do you mean? Do I need to repeat the practice more than 1x in a single session? When giving the offering to the 4 directions, as well as offering the wine, should i also offer the food as well?

Sorry relative newbie to this practice x

Thanks, J

Re: Dorje Drollo Practice

I just went back and listened to the webcast archive files and the lung is the root mantra. He did not give the action mantra. Does that mean that the action mantra wont work?

Re: Dorje Drollo Practice

Thankyou everyone for your help- much appreciated :smile:

I have to get better at writing down what lungs ChNN gives at the end of retreats, as sometimes he can drop an unexpected lung in and sometimes the pronouniation can sound v.different to whats written down.
