Khyung gShog rTsal

Post by pemachophel »

Does anyone know anything about the sung-ma (female Guardian) Khyung gShog rTsal (Gardua-winged Adept/Mighty One)? No mention of Her in Oracles and Demons of Tibet. Came across this name in a serkyem offering I'm translating. She seems to be the consort of Dam-tag/Dam-chen Dorje Duddul. Any information about this Protector would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Maybe not the same, but there is a Kharak Khyung Sungma that is the terma protector for the Tukdrub Barche Kunsel. A red lady flying on a Garuda.

sungma - eventhough it has gramatically a female form does not necessarily denote female protector, Droje Khyungshog Tsal is one of the names of Dorje Legpa.
