Re: Mipham Rinpoche's termas

Guess I should've started my search in my own lamas' book store. I forgot about the White Tara and Saraswati sadhanas. I'm wondering what other sadhanas there are, aside from the Shower of Blessings and Buddha Shakyamuni sadhanas, as I'm thinking more of maha-/anuyoga sadhanas here.

Re: Mipham Rinpoche's termas

Yeah, I knew he’d revealed mind terma at least, because I’ve received three of his empowerments for them. I was wondering if all he revealed were mind terma, and either way, how many and what were they? I’ve always felt drawn to Mipham, probably in no small part because my late guru, Khenchen Palden...

Mipham Rinpoche's termas

Anyone know the name and contents of Mipham Rinpoche's terma cycle? The nature of it, ie Sa ter or gong ter, etc?

Re: Extract, Immaculate Confession Tantra, recited by Patrul Rinpoche

A few years ago, Gyatrul Rinpoche's vision of creating hand-held prayer wheels with the Immaculate Confession Tantra inside was realized. I think Vimala may have a few left. It makes a great enhancement to the 4 powers part of Vajrasattva practice.

Re: Alternative to possibly toxic metal kapalas

I'm concerned that commercially available metal kapalas are not food-grade and so they may leach toxins into the amrita to be taken during the "taking the accomplishments" section of the sadhana. Has anyone else who's doing more elaborate sadhana practice had any thoughts about this and come up wit...

Shortly after I posted this, this occurred as a possible option. Great minds think alike! Thanks for your input.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Sorry for the off-topic question here, but was the Namchö chang chog practice one of the standard lungs Rinpoche gave at the end of each retreat?

Lung always given at time of empowerment?

So of course nowadays I know that yidam practice functions in dependence on not only wang, but also lung and tri. But once upon a time I didn't know that, so if the lung hadn't been given I wouldn't have even known what I was missing, and now I want to practice some of the sadhanas from those early ...

Re: Guru Rinpoche´s leaving of Tibet

I've never heard that he "was forced" to leave, nor that he left before Samye was completed. But even if those things were true, the volume and profundity of transmissions he gave was greater than any Buddhist master before him to visit Tibet, and the establishment of the terma tradition was about a...

Re: Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Has Attained Parinirvana

Does anyone know if they'll take the camera inside so we can see Rinpoche's kudung? Or does anyone know what else is going to happen? It's super late here and I'm struggling to stay awake, but I will if something more than watching people slowly move into & out of the stupa.

Can anyone point me toward where I can find the melody for the long guru yoga of Garab Dorje? That is the one the community is currently doing, yes? I haven't been able to attend the webcasts thus far, have to practice solo.

Re: What's the difference between Guru Yoga and Yidam practice, and how do they relate to the Four Noble Truths?

The ultimate purpose of guru yoga is to merge our mind with the wisdom mind of the lama and all the objects of refuge in order to discover the very same wisdom mind--inseparable emptiness and knowing--in ourselves. To me, the ngondro is, like someone else said, one long guru yoga, culminating with t...
