Yang Zab Chenrezig Text Search

Post by Konchog Tashi » Wed Oct 08, 2014 4:29 pm

Greetings.

I am looking for texts relating to the Chenrezig cycle contained in the Yang Zab revelations of Rinchen Phuntsok. Specifically I am looking for English translations of the sadhanas and the empowerment manual (untranslated). The most important of the the two is the empowerment manual.

I have requested the wang, lung and tri for these practices from a qualified Drikung Kagyu lama and he has agreed to either personally give them or to ask another qualified lama to do so.

The lama in question does not have the necessary texts and has asked me to obtain them. I have, over the course of several years made inquiries with several translators. I have inquired with the obvious Dharma centers. I have been unable to locate these texts. Unfortunately, I can neither read nor speak Tibetan, and this has limited my avenues of inquiry.

Any assistance that anyone could provide would be deeply appreciated. Feel free to message me to discuss the matter.

Thank you!

Tashi

If you have TBRC access, this volume has it.

EDIT: Oh, I see you are looking for English translations.....well, this is likely no help, then. Sorry.

Seems like the next logical step is to find a translator and begin collecting the resources for a translation to happen.

It is my understanding that several sadhanas from this cycle have been translated, perhaps with some supporting materials. However, I have been unable to obtain them. I know that on multiple occasions this wang/lung/tri has been given, by at least 2 different lamas. Unfortunately, I have never been able to travel to the events.

Konchog Tashi la,

Is one of the translators you spoke to Mike Dickman, by chance? If not, I will put him in contact with you, as he's Lho Ontul Rinpoche's main translator for the Drikung Dzogchen Translation Project. Another good person to speak to is Eric Fry-Miller, who has done lo sum da sum in the Drikung tradition. Both guys are super nice. Beyond that, Virginia Blum is residing in the States at Drupon Thinley Nyingpo Rinpoche's center in Tampa, FL.

I will put feelers out and see what I can find. HH Gyalwang Karmapa's blessings have been ripening me quite a bit of late, and I'm happy to share the love by helping in anyway I can. Feel free to message me in private about this further.

All the best,
~ Jinpa

Did you find what you were looking for, Konchog Tashi? Garchen Rinpoche gave an empowerment for Yangzab Chenrezik back in mid-May, and sadhanas with English translation were available.

The one we got was entitled The Secret Hook of Compassion: The Secret and Quintessential Compilation of the Outer, Inner, and Secret Practices of the Great Compassionate One (Wyl. dam chos dgongs pa yang zab las gsang ba snying byang thugs rje chen po'i phyi nang gsang sgrub gsang ba thugs rje'i lcags kyu.

If you don't already have this text, consider contacting Gar Drölma Chöling:
