Can you consider as transmission practice done with teacher during retreat (like prayer, sang )
without formally getting the lung?

I have heard that it is a form of transmission so I guess that yes.

IME, in Tibetan monasteries, for many, many prayers and practices, the only lung is doing the practice with the Teacher and everyone else.

i think its important to know is that practice together in fact IS a lung. so if u are unsure its best to ask a teacher. i believe lung requires both sides to agree on the process.

Always wondered if this was so, thanks.
