Queries regarding 5fold Mahamudra ngondro of garchen Rinpoche

Post by Ogaf » Mon Oct 02, 2017 3:00 pm

Hi all, I am looking to start doing the Fivefold Mahamudra ngondro recently composed by Garchen Rinpoche. Does anyone know if the recording of the lung found here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AxAjmxOtMQ) is enough to get started, or must I receive it live?
Also, are there any videos or documents of his teachings regarding this specific ngondro available?
In the above video he makes it clear that anyone who has received the lung can pass it on, therefore would anyone be willing to do so if the recording does not suffice, please?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide :)

I do not think recording is enough. I do have the lung tho, and also the text. I think there are no teachings to that ngöndro available yet. But I guess it is the same like the old drikung ngöndro. If you do not find anything you can pm me and we can try to do sth with it.

You can always email garchen institute for more info.

Garchen Rinpoche's The Excellent Path to Enlightenment: A Practice of the Preliminaries of the Fivefold Mahamudra is posted on the Drikung Seattle website: http://www.drikungseattle.org/uploads/5 ... g_chn_.pdf. As recommended by Miroku, you should contact Garchen Institute about practice requirements.

Thank you for your help, peeps.

GI got back to me and said it is ok:

" Garchen Rinpoche does give you permission to start your ngondro practice if you've received the lung from the You Tube video and takem refuge from afar.

Hope you get the chance to meet Garchen Rinpoche in person in the future. "

Happy New Year!

Glad to hear that buddy!! :twothumbsup: Good luck. :) Try reading some books about ngöndro, there is plenty, but for drikung kagyu there is Diamond Rosary, it is commentary of the Blazing Glory of Blessing ngöndro but it could help.
