He put His mirror in a bowl of rice. He also lit a lamp or candle. He said some prayers &/or mantra and threw rice on the mirror. once the mirror was "opened," He would answer questions from different people. during the session, there was always someone to write down the answers. at he end of a session, He would close the mirror and put out the candle or lamp. He answered exactly the question that was asked. so if your question was not very clear, so might be the answer. for complicated situations, it was best to ask a series of simple questions.

hope this what you were asking. i'm going out now. ta-ta.
Have a great time. :)
Yes, that is exactly the information I was interested to know. :)

according the H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, in one of His lives, He was Dhadichi rishi, but that's a whole other story.
That's a story I'd like to hear 🙂

Thanks for sharing. Did he use Dorje Yudronma? He used a mirror and not Melong?

not sure about "virgin purity." could be. but, ime, i think it has more to do with the lack of agenda or ulterior motive in the young. no particular expectations, no great ego involvement, no monetary ambitions or desire for name and fame. just a game. no attachment.

i don't know if i've told this story before on DW. if so, i apologize. my paternal grandfather was from the orkneys and he had "sight." when i was in 6th grade, i was picked off the street in nyc to be tested for a new tv show. we're talking about the late 1950s. the tv show was about esp, and i was tested for identifying cards that were being turned over but which i couldn't see. i scored very, very high and was asked to come back for more testing (which got me out of school). however, at a certain point, we started winning silver dollars for each right answer. that put an end to my esp. the money clouded my otherwise niave intuition. at first the money didn't affect me, but as i began winning, i wanted to win more and i started winning less and less. because the drama of the show was based on winning money, i never got on the air. (i still have the silver dollars that i won.)

as a corollary of this, my Teacher was not allowed to ask questions about Himself. this was a samaya of the practice.

yes, i am talking about Acharya Lama Dawa Chodrak. Lama Dawa was also a Tulku. according the H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, in one of His lives, He was Dhadichi rishi, but that's a whole other story.
Russell Targ, a pioneer remote viewing researcher, had a similar experience.
They set up a protocol for remote viewing the silver market in stocks, and made a lot of money (way more than allowable by chance); but, at some point they stopped doing it as a disinterested experiment and started to really want to make a lot of money...
...they promptly stopped being successful.

I suspect that some are able to do it, but that kind of thing is SO common in psychic and magical literature. Fascinating.

Dorje Yudronma was the intermediary. She is the custodian of the terma He practiced along with Mugdzin Wangpo (Black Dzambhala).

sorry, yes, melong. to me that's a mirror.

I thought Lama Dawa did Red Saraswati divination. Did he not? So Red Saraswati doesn't have a divination? Or is there a difference between enlightened divination and worldly divination?

yes, it was Cho-kyi Go-cha's Red Saraswati terma cycle that led Lama Dawa to develop His abilities at mirror divination. but Dorje Yudronma is the custodian Protectress of that cycle and She is actually the intermediary Who manifests the visions in the mirror. i have posted elsewhere here on DW the full contents of that cycle.
