Quoted by Khentrul Lodo Thaye,

Re: Sacred Passage Tsa-tsa

Actually, I think a student of a student of Changchub Dorje. Definitely in the same lineage stemming from Nyala Pema Duddul. I know the Terton Who blesses and places the sa-tsa in the cave. He is very, very special and I have utmost respect for Him. That being said, I also think it's time for Wester...

Dowload for free. The list of ingredients is at the end.

I don't know that this is a "rigid" list. It's Lama Dawa's list. It doesn't say where He got it from.

Re: Commiphora wightii ,mukul, guggul resin

Wei Han,

Just looked up Lama Dawa Chodrak's ingredients for making a mother sang mixture and it does not include guggul. Sorry if I was mistaken.

Re: Commiphora wightii ,mukul, guggul resin

WeiHan, The incense is not for you; it's for the Guru(s) and Deities. Since the ingredients in Riwo Sangchod each have a reason for being there, good to get more. You can add a little to any other incense you'd like to offer as well as various flours. This includes sandalwood and guggul. This will m...

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

According to one of my Teachers in Kham, there is a Jigme Lingpa ngakpa ordination that one person can only give to 13 others in their entire lifetime. That Teacher always wears the whole ngakpa kit. However, I know one of his Western students who asked for this ordination and then asked to be excus...

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

Varis,

"There is an association between all white robes and yogis who have accomplishments in regards to tummo practice among Kagyupas."

I don't know anything about Kagyudpas, but, in Nyingma, it is the red and white zen associated with mastery of tummo.

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

IMO, the only ngakpa that matters is the one who actually has ngak. Even if one does have ngak, better to be a bay-pai naljor/hidden yogi in this day and age.

Re: Guru Puja

The person in Nepal who can arrange Dudjom Tersar pujas for you is Lama Dawa's Tibetan consort, Kalsang Lama. Please tell Her I referred you to Her.

Re: Guru Puja

Have Narak Kongshak recited as many times as you can afford at www.mahasiddha.org. Go to their prayer requests page and scroll down their list of available pujas. If you specifically want to sponsor a Guru puja, another option would be to have the Dudjom Lama Chodpa done for you. But I don't believe...

Re: Refuge Name

"There is no dharma magic in the sounds of words, aside from mantras. Don’t know where you get that idea from but it’s not a thing in Buddhism." We're all so sure of ourselves and opinions. This is the obscuration of knowledge and it's so hard for all of us to eliminate. It's the very water we menta...

Re: What are you PERSONALLY doing about the coronavirus?

Because I was already in full-time practice, I can't say that Covid-19 has increased my practice time, but I have changed some of my practices around a bit in response to the coronavirus. I've added Donkun Drupai Nodjin Wangmo to my Protectors. I'm doing a lot of Mamo confession and fulfillment. I'v...

Re: Help with translation please

Need to see the context. 'bu is worm or insect. Drung can mean several pretty divergent things. That's why context is important.

Could mean "reverend lady/mother/female worm."
