Seven Nails - Shri Singha

Post by Seeker12 » Sun Oct 14, 2018 2:42 pm

Has anyone read the translation by Khenchen Palsen Sherab Rinpoche? Is it a good translation? Any other recommendations for Shri Singha in English?

Thanks.

Therein is nothing to remove
And thereto not the slightest thing to add.
The perfect truth viewed perfectly
And perfectly beheld is liberation.

Uttaratantra

If I'm not mistaken there is a translation of the seven nails in Wellsprings of the Great Perfection .
Shhh, look...a crystal!

Generally, the khenpo brothers produce excellent translations.

I'll third this with the caveat that Khenpo Palden Sherab, was a wellspring of knowledge, wisdom and kindness. He is missed.

I would trust anything he writes about Dharma and Dzogchen and you are very fortunate to find anything written by him.

Khenpola is one of the only Lamas who, when asked to explain tsel, dang and rolpa, gave an extremely well grounded (in experience), hour long, very patient to make sure I was understanding what he was saying, response.

He and his brother were very kind to me over many years while I was a member of the HH Dudjom R. center on 16th St, NYC.

Khenchen Palden and Khenpo Tsewang are both quite special to me as well. I took refuge with them in 2003 and have been taking teachings from them ( and now Khenpo) ever since with a brief break while I was out of the country.
