Rinchen Terdzö question

Post by Varis » Wed Mar 28, 2018 2:17 am

Does anyone know what terma the sadhana for Chinnamunda in the Rinchen Terdzö came from and who revealed it?

I believe it is from Nyang Ral, see:

Well, technically that text is in Minling Terchen's Dojo Bumzang collection, which was included in subsequent printings of the Terdzo as an addendum, but yes it was revealed by Nyangral.

Thank you both!

Also: is this form yellow or red?

Looking at the text, it appears that the central figure is red-yellow, i.e. orange, the right figure is red and the left figure is "white green" which I think means light green. I am just a beginner with Tibetan so perhaps someone can check that for me.

Sounds right, thank you again.
