"No boredom for those who practice", unless they get bored of practicing. A very real phenomenon!

Re: looking for information about dorje legpa(vajrasadhu)

Hi everyone, I am looking for the relevant information about vajrasadhu. Can someone enlighten me the information about this wordly protector? I am looking for the mantra and other relevant information. Thank you for your help. Could you care to explain why you wish to practice this deity, exactly?

My Greek lama recommended I do some protector practices (torma, serkyem, etc) to pacify the Mamo.

I informed him that I am happy to do so, but shouldn't somebody tell everybody else to stop irritating the Mamo?
How are the mamos being irritated exactly?

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Also doing at least some exercises everyday, eat vegetables and fruits and hot soups / teas to help keep i...

Re: Practices for epidemics and pandemics

Any evidence that any of this is even remotely helpful? The Medicine Buddha sutra says I should've been healed of my disease by now, after years of practice. It never did. Still sick. So either it's wrong, or I somehow practiced it incorrectly. I've seen scores of people NOT be healed from whatever...

Most likely Shingon, however the mantra is

Om huru huru candâli mâtàngi svâhâ (Skt.)
Candali? Is this Medicine Buddha mantra or something else?

So SAT is coming up alongside AP exams and afterwards, I’m free (for a bit). In my spare time, what sutras should I read to fulfill the basics and fundamentals? Which commentaries? And in the pursuit of Vajrayana, which texts specifically on that direction? I can’t read high tantras and empowerment ...

Re: Need help from someone who can read both Chinese and Tibetan

If the preta water offering doesn't require an empowerment as I found in the following link, then one can visualize themselves as Chenrezig? Or is that only with lung and for those without it, they can visualize the Lord of Compassion before them or above? https://lhaseylotsawa.org/texts/preta-water...
