Can you, or anyone else in the know, elaborate on this strange and wonderfully entitled practice? Is it part of the Chod cycle or something else?

What is the Tibetan translation?

Re: Vajrajapa / Guhysamaja Question

:namaste: As it stands, I have a very casual transmission from a kagyu lama, who asked me to study English sources I could find. Those that I have found, I believe draw from Gelug sources. This is the root of my concern. I am not trying to mix anything, my question is geared rather at unmixing anyth...

Re: Vajrajapa / Guhysamaja Question

:namaste: The issue for me is not origin - I had assumed the origin to be the same, given Tsongkhapa's background, it's changes made in presentation - I'm not even sure if there are changes, but I do know that there's a pronounced Akshobhya/Vairocana switch in general Gelug presentation.

Re: Vajrajapa / Guhysamaja Question

:namaste: Thank you, Karma Sherab! That did definitely partially answer my question (although I would still like to read some other knowledgeable answers). Yours was an extremely informative post, and might give me some more questions the more I think about it. Is jnanapada mostly Sakya then? Are di...

:namaste: I have a question about Guhyasamaja from Kagyu perspective. Firstly, everything I have been able to find on it has been Arya/Gelug. I would like to know if there are any good Kagyu sources in English. My question in specific is about Om / Ah / Hum & deity/color assignments. It seems that i...

Re: Candamaharosana & Sexual Practice

Namaste Tingzin, thank you for the reply. The problem with that interpretation is that the lunar & solar channels/energies/etc. almost always refer to the left and right channels - it is quite irregular to consider both of them as lunar as far as I know. I'm beginning to believe the above quote was ...

Candamaharosana & Sexual Practice

Hello friends. :namaste: I have a question concerning an alleged quote in the Candamaharosana about, well, a ritualized threesome, which appears in the book "Sexual Secrets: Alchemy of Ecstasy" by Nik Douglas & Penny Slinger. One woman, coming from the disc of the moon, is enjoyed by another similar...
