Re: Difficulty doing Manjushri practices and prayers due to negative association

Well, just to play Devil's advocate, are you sure that he could not have had a change of heart and issued emanations to Jamdudvipa out of pity? Emanation, sure (the last sentence of his quote actually indicates the possibility of magical emanations). But reincarnation, well, he says no. To me it lo...

Re: Difficulty doing Manjushri practices and prayers due to negative association

3. Is there really a consensus in the Tibetan community that Osel Mukpo is the reincarnation of Mipham the Great? What is the argument that he is? What is the argument that he is not? Mipham the Great said before his death that there he wouldn't be reborn in this world: Now is a critical moment in ...

Re: Khorwa Dongtruk in the Nyingma Kahma

The Tibetan has just bka' ma dong sprugs (no 'khor ba). In other texts, this contraction refers to Narak Dongtruk of the Kama lineage.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Jamyang Norbu reminisces about ChNN: Sometime in the mid-eighties Namkhai Norbu visited my uncle Rakra Trulku at the Pestalozzi Children’s Village in Switzerland. During their after-dinner conversation Namkhai Norbu asked my uncle if he would like to experience a “mirror divination” (tib. tra-pab)....

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Are there any more elaborate explanations available of the Guru Yoga of the White A practice that we're focusing on just now? I have the Guruyoga book, which has a nice, very concise commentary, but I could use a little more elaboration. There's an MP3 with explanation and practice available on Sha...

Re: Longchenpa's refuge prayer

Does anyone know the source text for the following refuge prayer attributed to Longchenpa? Did he compose it or was it received from an earlier source? I've transcribed it from a recording of Adriano Clemente, who was taught it by Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche (sorry for any transcription errors): Namkhai...

Re: Concise Tibetan grammar

An Introduction to Classical Tibetan by Stephen Hodge would seem to fit the bill.

Re: Pearl Rosary collection question

Thank you, Ratna! Also it seems that the Manjushri is not from 50 deities as the forms in Jewel Garland are different, just according to the picture. No, it's straight out of Jewel Garland. Three peaceful Mañjuśrīs are included in the Jewel Garland: Lord of Speech, White Mañjuśrī from the tradition...

Re: Pearl Rosary collection question

Hi, Are the sadhanas from Pearl Rosary collection the same as those which are used in Jewel Garland of 50 Deities (compiled by Rigzin Chökyi Drakpa (Drikung Dharmakirti))? I'd really like to order the book but don't know if I have the empowerments for it. Yes, most of these sadhanas go with empower...
