Does the DC practice have a torma?
No. It is a kind of sang with offerings of milk, etc

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

Tersar lamas don't teach that Drolo is "the essence of Vajrakilaya".
Obviously, there are Tersar Lamas that do, which I have already shown.

According to the late SHENPHEN DAWA RINPOCHE, HH Dudjom Rinoche's son by his second wife, Drollo and Putri Regpung both share Namchag Putri as the source for their further Dzogchen instructions.

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

I don't think you understand how good cop, bad cop works. It means the cops collude to put on a show that makes you think one is good and the other is bad. But really they are tricking you and both work for the same boss. The good cop is only pretending to be your friend. This is very lazy thinking.

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

I agree that the dzogchen teachings in the DT Drolo cycle are limited (to one short text - http://www.lotsawahouse.org/tibetan-masters/dudjom-rinpoche/light-of-primordial-wisdom ) and that would entail looking elsewhere for more extensive Dzogchen teaching in the terma tradition, but there is no re...

I think we should treat the claim with care.
I don't. He is my guru. he was a terton. YMMV.

He maintained the same point of view from 1992 when I first heard this, to the only time he ever taught Drollo, a few years ago.

This is not something I've ever heard from any tersar lama, and I've specifically asked after Malcolm made that claim. Whereas it is true that Dudjom Tersar Drolo does not have extensive dzogchen teachings, and, if you want to practice dzogchen you might have to take teachings from Namchak Putri or...

There is no mention at all of a tigress in the Konchog Chidu Drollo sadhana or empowerment, much less the tigress being identified as Tsogyal.

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

What is the problem with the tigress being the Bon deity? You are the one perceiving it as a humiliation, that does not mean it is humiliating in the first place. In other explanations it is his own consort. It is not a servant or something like that. Guess you miss the core of the discussion here....

Not sure I follow. So because Drolo is Vajra Khroda Lokottara this connects him with Vajrakilaya because of རྡོ་རྗེ་ཁྲོ་བོས་ཞེ་སྡང་གཅོད?
Could you give me a page reference for the Paro Taktsang bit?
Yes.

Dudom Rinpoche's collected works, vol 15; ppg. 115-116, beginning on the bottom of 115.

= Regarding another characteristic that you mention, the tigress is most often described as pregnant rather than "in heat." This is not correct, actually Kunzang Dechen Lingpa, a terton and another direct disciple of Dudjom Rinpoche made it very clear that not only was the tigress in heat, it was i...

all DT lamas I've ever asked reject the idea that Drolo is "considered something like the essence of Kilaya." Some dedicated DT Phurba and Drolo practitioners I've asked have no idea what Malcolm was actually going on about. According to the DT Drollo chronicle, while at Paro Taktsang, Guru Rinpoch...

Re: Independent investigation confirms “physical, sexual, emotional abuse” by Sogyal Rinpoche

I have long been wondering to what degree tantric deities are or are not comparable with Jungian archetypes. Saying that they are "same" is obviously not correct. Saying they are completely different somehow does not seem right neither to me. Deity yogas are, fundamentally speaking, dramatized narr...
