Karling shitro

Post by Könchok Thrinley » Sun Oct 09, 2016 12:29 pm

Hello,

in a month I will have the opportunity to receive bardo teachings and karling shitro empowerment from Tulku Dakpa rinpoche. I know it is connected with the famous Bardo Thödol, but could someone tell me more details about the Karling Shitro cycle?
Also are there some recorded teachings from Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche? I've heard he is a great teacher and would like to check him out first.
The initiation is supposed to be torwang, what does it mean exactly?

Tulku Dapa is quite wonderful in my opinion. Karling Shitro is an important Shitro cycle and there is quite a lot translated from that cycle, you will find it if you google. Torwang means that it is a torma empowerment, it is a short form of the empowerment.

Thank you for those videos he seems to really be a good teacher.

May I ask you if you could tell me names of those texts? I don't seem to be able to find anything of use :oops:

In the cycle of the Sadhana there are three Empowerment : the Root Empowerment (tsawang), the Medium Meaning Empowerment (donwang), and the Torma Empowerment (torwang). Having obtained one of these empowerments from a qualified master who possesses the lineage, one is then authorized to practice all the different sadhanas. In order to actually apply the Essence Practice one also needs to receive the reading transmission and oral instructions. The reading transmission can be received from any person who has heard it him or herself, but the oral instructions should be received from a qualified teacher who has the lineage of these oral instructions.
The Zabchö Shitro Gongpa Rangdrol (Wyl. zab chos zhi khro dgongs pa rang grol), 'The Peaceful and Wrathful Deities, The Profound Dharma of Self-liberated Wisdom Mind', aka Karling Shitro Gongpa Rangdrol (Wyl. kar gling zhi khro dgongs pa rang grol) is a cycle of terma teachings revealing the bardo teachings and instructions of the Nyingma tradition. They were revealed in the fourteenth century by the great tertön Karma Lingpa. The cycle contains the famous Bardo Tödrol Chenmo, the so-called Tibetan Book of the Dead.
