For those who want to check Yeshi Namkhai’s delivery of teachings there are a few videos with Russian titles on youtube and therefore not easy to find unless you can read russian writing or at least know how to spell his name.
Here is one.


A few others can be found on a russian social network. One of these is on anu yoga and is particularly interesting.
“The path of the supreme yoga it is not the path of accomplished sages of the past. Whoever enters onto the path of the sages of the past will end up gripped by the sicknesses of the path - meditation, attachment, and exertion.”Thig le drug pa.

“Everything of the universe of saṃsāra and nirvāṇa arises as the enlightened energy of the one self-perfected Natural Presence. But these teachers still mistakenly teach that disciples should fabricate enlightenment by applying discipline, renunciation, interruption, purification and transformation”.

On Anu Yoga. You may need an account to make it work.

I also found some 4 or 5 audio recordings, two hour long on what it appears teachings on the 3 paths of liberation, some text about ChNNr's commitments, SMS related explanations and practices but i wont post them here.

Hi,
Does anyone know if Rinpoche ever indicated a reason other than personal inclination as to why someone might chose one long life practice over another in a given situation (i.e. Amitayus or Mandarava)?

TIA.
Astrological conditions. For example during an eclipse the Guru Amitayus practice is adviced.

Maybe there are others.
Makes sense. Thanks.

ChNNR had a rare form of leukemia.He was preparing to die and had dreams of Mandarava and did the practices and was cured.
Two masters had also predicted his death at this time.He didn't die and would do Mandarava retreats each year thereafter.
Yes, as I understand it, his recovery was so unusual it made the news. :)
There is also Garuda which is supposed to be particularly effective againt cancer. And of course Amitayus. I imagine one can use divination to narrow it down and as mentioned, astrological indicators (prehaps waxing and waning moon?) could help one decide.

Im curious if many people learn all of them or usually pick one and focus on it.

At the Shang Shung Publications Web Store there are a few free documents and audio, one of them is the Vajrasattva + 25 Spaces, the practices done most recently via webcast. Should note it is not the practice of Vajrasattva Purification and Mandala Offering which I've never been able to find an explanation or audio of.

There are DVDs/MP4s available of Rinpoche doing the practices. If you're a member of the DC there is video/audio available on the Webcast site under Retreat Resources. You could even email them asking about it, some one was kind enough to skype with me when I first started out and walked me through the mudras, etc.

Hello. I just finished reading the practice of Guru Medicine Buddha booklet. On page 11, the instructions say, '...we sing the following invocation', and it starts with E MA HO. Is there a recording of the Guru Padmasambhava as Medicine Buddha melody available? I only have the audio on how to pronounce it due to the Mantras and Invocations set.

Speaking of melodies, I would need the DC ritual melodies mp3 so I can learn the song for the authentication of a namkha, don't I? It seems like missed my chance at purchasing other essential things during the last sale.

Not sure of any audio existing for Orgyen Menla. Try writing to shangshung store and asking them. Also, it's helpful to know the melody for the Namkha, but remember ChNN constantly said " do your best and work with circumstances", so please don't let not having the ritual melody for the Namkha empowerment stop you from doing it :)

Thank you for the advice. Contacting them hadn't crossed my mind. I will try that later. I keep forgetting about those essential bolded words. :emb: Your reminder was quite helpful. I just started reading on how to construct a Namkha. Their history, and the steps on their creation is fascinating.

Anybody have a high resolution image of the Shitro mandala?
