I thought I should post an update, on the off-chance anyone was led to question SSI-USA's service based on my previous post. I contacted them and it turns out they had send all four of my items the same day, three days after I placed my order. Each download link was a separate email, but they all had the same sender and subject, so they were collapsed in one conversation in Gmail. I only noticed the first message, then sat around waiting for the other three for two weeks. :emb:
Ha ha, sounds like something I would do. :namaste:

When Chnn says that mantra should be recited underbreath and without interrupting it means that one should also recite during in breath?

What would the emphasis be in the yidam section of tun when practicing in a consice way like in group practice when you only recite 21 mantras? The visualization is quite detailed with the image of the mantra and action for me to practice all in a short time.

Same with the guardians. Im guessing the most important figures are the ones that are in tun book

Can someone please help shed some light on the contents this restricted book:
Secondary Practices of the Dzogchen Community
.

Is this a complete list of all secondary practices within the DC? Would someone who's participated in the last Ati Guru Yoga retreat be allowed to purchase this book?

Thanks in advance and apologies for the ignorance!

Yes you definitely can get it, it sheds some more light on practices that you were given the lung for on the last day. It doesn't contain everything, but for someone who is starting it's very complete, contains the principal practices. For each there is a bit of history, purpose of practice, maybe some little detail here and there, and related publications. It's not indispensable, but I have found it a helpful overview,

Thank you, Leif! Sounds like it's exactly what I need. Was thinking about getting this and the Tun book first before purchasing some of the more extensive secondary practice books. Still getting my head around the Precious Vase book, so I'm taking it slow and steady. :reading:

I think you visualize everything arising instantly, with a more focus on the feel than every precise visualized detail.
It takes very little time.

Has Rinpoche ever given the lung for any of Longchenpa's Seven Treasuries? If not, is he likely to do so in the future? I remember him mentioning that he received that transmission himself.

It is highly unlikely. Rinpoche gives only lungs for practices, with some fairly rare exceptions (the Dra Thalgyur tantra, for instance). No time for book-length texts.

I remember reading somewhere that Green Tara is best practiced in the morning. Is this largely a Kriyayoga concern? Or is this something to keep in mind while doing Rinpoche's Green Tara practice? Would it be more effective to do it at a certain time of the day, or is doing it in the afternoon/evenings totally fine/equivalent? I'm guessing it's not an issue at all, but I was hoping more knowledgeable folks could clarify.

Asap I guess. I received this too, as an email today, and had renewed some time ago.
