Kunzang Gongdü Ngöndro

Post by fckw » Thu Jun 27, 2019 9:34 pm

Can anyone very briefly give me an outline of the Kunzang Gongdü Ngöndro practices (in the lineage of Pema Lingpa)? I assume it contains the following:

1. Guru-Yoga with Padmasambhava
2. Vajrasattva purification practice
3. Prostrations
4. Mandala offering
5. Others?

Are there any specialties in comparison to other Nyingma ngöndros?

Dzongsar Kkyentse Rinpoche gave a Teaching on Ngöndro which is this exact ngöndro.

Skimming through that text is the usual:

The Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind
Refuge and Bodhicitta
Vajrasattva
Mandala Offering
Guru Yoga

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
