So we're not going to get the lung of the Sadhana or does he know this one by heart and he already gave it?

This I don't know, but he don't remember the Sangtik sadhana anymore. But you can easily get it from one of Tulku Urgyen's sons.

How? Do they Skype? :D

I'm still confused, is the Sangtig sadhana the same as Ratna Lingpa's?

Sangtik Phurba sadhana is different from the Ratna Lingap practice they're going to do.

Thanks. Was there lung for that already during the empowerment? If not, is the empowerment enough?

Maybe, I am not sure. :smile:

Not at all the same, Sangtik is defined as an ati sadhana, the development stage is instantaneous and the text is very short.

So…I guess most of us in all the various far flung haunts and hollows, hilltops and dales will be using the sadhana as written by Sangye Lingpa:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/149130531/Puj ... tna-Lingpa

Would be fantastic to somehow get hold of the lineage prayers and the dorma section that Lama Garchen mentioned he'd added.

Otherwise, I'm assuming for the purposes of our drubchen the above text will be solid and good as it is going to get.

If you have the lung for it. It might be a good idea to request that one of the lama at the Garchen Rinpoches centre (doesn't have to be the big man himself) to organise a webcast of the lung for us "far flung" types.

Yes I know normally it's like that, I was just thinking it might be different here since he hasn't given it (which I wasn't sure about till you confirmed it). Well, I think if we attend the first session of the Drubchen that will count too unless Garchen Rinpoche won't be participating or something.

Does the livestream start automatically at exact time? Because now there's an older video recorded being played.

It will show a 'live' button on the screen, you may have to reload the player. It was live for a few minutes and then went off air.

So no lung, no dice, eh? About 10 minutes till blast off…

Doesn't make sense tho', there were no requirements stated, seemed there was an open invite for all and sundry.

I've worn out my welcome with them I think. I asked them how we could participate if we don't have a text and the answer was not really anything anyone could do anything with just, "yeah, sure, you can do any Vajrakilaya sadhana you like, Lama Garchen is very liberal about that kind of thing. And you know there are many translators whose work is being used without their permission." Sigh...

I also asked if we could practice our usual yidam practice and still participate, but no answer to that question. I am probably going to go with that option if none of this is addressed by Lama Garchen.

That seems to make sense Pero…I hope your're right that the first session of drubchen constitutes a lung, if I understand you right.

If you have the sadhana that they are using in the drupchen i.e. the Ratna Lingpa Sadhana, you dont need an additional lung for it. If you received the empowerment you may practice with the text that they are using, period. You may practice it daily as well. You received the empowerment from Garchen Rinpoche, his blessing is inconceivable, he is giving all of us permission to practice in the drubchen, as long as you receive the empowerment. Actually if you were in arizona and came late and missed the empowerment you could still practice in the drupchen.

As far as using another sadhana, don't see how one would be able to follow along with the prayers, the recitation, and the visualization. Its not really relevant to this drubchen right now. Just order the text online from the GBI bookstore and you can use it to practice as your own time allows.

Group practice (at drubchen or practice at a "temple") does not require a lung, but individual practice (or, basically, possession and use of the text) normally requires lung.
