Right now

"Right now you have the opportunity. Look for the essence of mind - this is meaningful. When you look at mind, there's nothing to be seen. In this very not seeing, you see the definitive meaning." -from Machig's Last Instructions.

Re: Dorje Drolo Sadhana

I've been interested in Dorje Drolo lately and was wondering what the mantra is. I haven't been able to find it and would appreciate this from anyone willing to reveal it to me. I have no permission to practice but no rules would be broken just by my learning/reciting of the mantra, correct ?
