Re: Decreased interest in Tantric practice

The outer appearance, position, and tradition of the Master are not important. What is important is to know the purpose of the teaching. Otherwise, we will condition ourselves with the outward appearance, position, and tradition of the Master and create many problems for ourselves and others. Guruy...

Re: Finding and Recognizing your Guru

Take your time. My faith in my guru truly deepened and solidified after he left his physical body. YMMV.

Re: Is Tara Buddhist Deity

Can anyone tell the sourceof the origin of Tara? I have done my homework and as long as I can tell Tara is Hindu goddess adopted to Buddhism. There are many Hindu goddess adopted to Buddhism not just Tara. I am not sure why, maybe it's believed the practice or the deity has similar quality to Buddh...

I only saw the Italian application form and something about getting a certificate afterwards ...and having to sign an NDA.
Could you share the link to that form?

Apologies if posting is inappropriate but does anyone have a copy of the Green Tara practice that Rinpoche usually gives?

Re: Buddhahood in This Life Transmission: 09/15/17

I think this is the transmission of "Buddhahood in This Life", at least I haven't seen any indication that there will be something else like Nyida Khajor tantra. /magnus This is what is they've put up on the FB event page Saturday the 21st of September 9:00 - 12:00 lung of Dreltig chenmo (with brea...

Re: Buddhahood in This Life Transmission: 09/15/17

Is there a preferred/recommended version of the Nyida Khajor tantra that one should procure for studying after receiving the lung from Rinpoche? Also, I would like to contribute to the organisational expenses of this transmission - is there a way I can do this online? I am unable to attend the Drelt...

Does anyone know if there is a specific melody for the Khorwa Tongtrug practice? Doesn't seem like there are any audio recordings of this practice on the Shang Shung store.

Re: 2016 Webcast Recording of Guru Dragphur

I can't seemed to find it. I wrote to Shang Shung Publications and haven't heard back yet. You might have better luck writing to one of the senior students like Adriano or Elio. They usually respond quite promptly and might be able to help you better. I've not had a response from the Shang Shung Pu...

Have you checked out SSI USA's shop? I also wanted to practice that, but it was unavailable in SSI UK. Their staff told me it was currently out of print when I contacted them last January. I haven't, actually. Thanks for the link, moonbun! The cover looks different but I'm assuming it's the same bo...

Thank you very much for the detailed explanation, my eight-limbed friend. It's much clearer now and helped erase some doubts I had about doing the Jñanadakini practice. And to answer dharmafootsteps' earlier question - the three Jñanadakini mantras allows one to practice the short Gomadevi tun, righ...

Cool, thanks for the clarification! This would mean that one would also need the wang to practice Jñanadakini as the three mantras aren't enough, correct? Just to clarify - what's the difference between a donwang and a regular wang? Would the three Jñanadakini mantras that Rinpoche transmitted last ...
