Re: John Maransky :: Awakening Through Love

I met him many years back and traveled to India with him and Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche for about 10 days. Nice enough man and very learned he was definitely more in the role of scholar then rather than Lama. I have not read his book(s)? or attended his classes, but one on one he was able to answer some ...

Re: Pls help identify this tangkha

I've noticed a trend of Amitabha popping up on a lot of random thangkas (I guess nothing wrong with that per se). I'd have to agree with Sherab Dorje, Vajrasattva w/Vajratopa, and Amitabha above. Generally it would make sense in deities of the Amitabha family, but many formally untrained thangka pa...

Re: Need Help Locating Texts from TBRC

Thank you! We ended up figuring it out, a nice woman who works there helped guide us and we had to make an account. I think we have most of what we were looking for now.

Need Help Locating Texts from TBRC

Hello, I am unfamiliar with the workings of TBRC but I am trying to help a Lama find some texts. We are looking for the complete volumes of Dorje Lingpa, about 4 volumes. The Lama said he knows they have them but we can't seem to find them online. What is the best way to search for these texts and h...

Re: Riwo Sangchod - Restrictions regarding time performed?

Morning is considered best, ideally predawn while things are still "freash". Generally sur would be offered in the evening.

Please help identify a few Nyingma Protectors

I am working off of a rough translation of of the Pema Lingpa long protectors practice and I am trying to better identify two of the protectors by their mantras. One is translated as the life sustaining black butcheress (kali?) and the other is action protector (a version of mahakala or shiva?) If y...

Re: Treasure Vase Info

We keep all together in a separate chest in our shrine room. Most are not meant to be displayed as other shrine items, but kept hidden away to increase yang. As long as a wealth puja is performed once in a while it should "recharge" them.

Re: Chod Damaru vs standard Damaru

At a center I visited recently, I noticed a type of damaru that differed from the usual skull or skull-shaped wood ones (the kind with corners) in that it was small--maybe six or eight cm (3-4 in) in diameter--but round like a chod damaru. I'd never seen one like this before. Ideas on what that's a...
