Re: Realization of the Naga's practices

Sorry you find this crass and insulting. It was not meant to be that way. Are you saying that there's no need to seek any further training or clarification for a practice that is potentially dangerous and which ChNNR has even said is so? If that training can happen within the DC, that's great. Or wh...

Re: Remedy Gyalpo

rai, Are you absolutely sure that taking photos is not harmful to the individual photographed on some level? Just because most Lamas now don't believe that doesn't mean it can't be true. (I'm not saying it is true, but I'm questioning your logic.) This is the Kali Yuga and even Lamas are more and mo...

Re: Realization of the Naga's practices

????, Sorry to hear about your mother's recent diagnosis of scleroderma. It is not that all skin diseases involve provocations ( don ) by Nagas. In Tibetan medicine, there are several main causes of disease: karma, imbalance in the elements and "humors", and spirit provocations. This is why a qualif...

Re: Realization of the Naga's practices

Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche was a great Master, but I think most people would agree that He was iconoclastic in some regards. He was one of my Teachers (though not one of my Root Gurus). So I'm not criticizing Him in my following response. If He is/was your Root Guru and your samaya with Him is i...

Re: Realization of the Naga's practices

Not sure why this is under Dzogchen, but, in answer to your several questions: 1. Common signs of Naga puja for good, white Nagas being successful include: auspicious and asked for rain, receipt of asked for wealth, the healing of diseases related to the Nagas, seeing snakes in dream and/or real lif...

Re: The Point of Lineage Prayers

Consider: The lineage starts with Samantrabhadra or Vajradhara. In Nyingma, it goes to Vajrasattva and then to Garab Dorje, Shri Singha, Jampal Shenyen, etc. to Guru Rinpoche, Yeshe Tshogyal, King Trisong Deutsan, etc. and then to Longchenpa, Jigme Lingpa, etc. down to who? Your Teacher. So would Ga...

Re: Khaywang ?

The title I'm more familiar with is Khedrub, where khed means study and drub means accomplishment.

Re: Khaywang ?

Never seen that one before, but probably means Lord/King of Study, i.e., the intellectual side of Buddhism as opposed to drub, practical accomplishment. This is only an "educated guess" since you do not include the actual Tibetan spelling.

Good luck & best wishes.

Yes, He lives on the side of hill in Thimphu in a small monastery populated by nuns. When I was there, He was in three-year retreat. So I didn't get to meet Him. However, I know He has been out of retreat for some time. One wall of the lhakang has a diorama (is that the right word?) with small figur...

Re: DIY prayer wheel

I've made just such prayer wheels. You role your mantras leaving a small hole in the center. You then drill a small hole in the center of the bottom of the can and another the same diameter in the lid of the can. The diameter should be just slightly wider than the diameter of the central rod you are...

Re: Remedy Gyalpo

The Gyalpo sung-khor (protection amulet) needs to be consecrated. I doubt if it will provide much protection by simply downloading it from the Internet. Maybe some just due to dependent arising.
