By any chance does anyone have the image of Garab Dorje that appears in the Thun book in a big size? It's the same as the one used in this cover.

It should come out fine.

Just wanted to say that we are receiving steady, unconditional support from Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, his students in general and some of his local sanghas in particular. It is both much needed and deeply moving, to say the least. I honestly cannot imagine a better response.

We have also received lots of warmth and support from other Bon lamas -- and from Khenchen Lama Rinpoche, who has just composed the following prayer:

The Primal Rosary of Precious Stones:
A Long Life Prayer for His Eminence Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoché
༧སྐྱབས་རྗེ་ཆོས་རྒྱལ་ནམ་མཁའི་ནོར་བུ་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ལ་བརྟན་གསོལ་རིན་ཆེན་དང་པོའི་ཕྲེང་བ།།

And so it was that on the positive auspicious occasion of Medicine Dawn (sman char) in the Earth Dog Year of the sixty-year Tibetan astrological cycle (rab gnas), the day of celebration for Medicine Buddha, in response to numerous disciples of this Supreme Defender, such as Khandro Pelden Lhamo Drölma and others, who stated the necessity of a long life prayer for the great captain of peace and happiness for all the nations of the world, His Eminence Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoché, whatever rose to mind, as a supplicating wish to the infinite array of the Three Roots and the Victorious Ones together with their Bodhisattva Heirs, and as a prayer for the stable longevity of this Defender himself, was written down on the slopes of a mountain in the snow country of England, by the Dharma Expounder of the Degenerate Age, a spiritual mendicant of the Śākyan lineage, Khenchen Lama Pelgyeypa Dorjé, or Śrī Émaho; who formulated aspirations just so: May it be virtuous!
(Translated from the Tibetan by Erick Tsiknopoulos, September 18th 2018, at the request of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoché’s students.)

The video has been so bad for the first session on the last couple of days that I can't even tell what practice is being performed (I mean, I know it's Guru Yoga of the White A). But is it the Medium Thun or what? I'd like to know so I can still practice concurrently. Thanks

I appreciate you mentioning that.

TBH more lamas should be reaching out at a time like this, and it means a lot that some are.

It is the White A of Guru Garab Dorje as found in the Guru Yoga book not thun book. If someone has the Tibetan verses of this I would really appreciate a copy or at least where to find. Does the collective practice book have the Tibetan?

It's in the Guru Yoga book. You can also buy an mp3 of it if you want to learn the melodies.

You mean actual Tibetan, not romanized? Why would you need that to perform the practice, or do you want it for some other reason? I thought it had Tibetan as well but I must have misremembered it.

There's an out-of-print book that has the Tibetan text written out for the Guru Yoga of Garab Dorje. I don't own it or remember which one it is, but I've seen older Dzogchen Community members with copies. Check the library of your nearest Gar or Ling.

If you can read both Tibetan and Drajyor script, it wouldn't be too hard to write or type out the Tibetan based on the transliteration in the current Guru Yoga book. It's only three verses of four lines each, with the last two lines repeated. The verses share an identical structure, with just a few words that differ among them.
Neither person nor skandhas
but stainless wisdom is Buddha.
In recognition ever serene—
Refuge I take therein.

Is there some reasoning in the meaning based on the two parts of the word in such cases, or is it mostly unrelated?
