Ngödrup Terjung = ?

Post by Palzang Jangchub » Tue May 16, 2017 12:08 am

Is the title of a text called དངོས་གྲུབ་གཏེར་འབྱུང་ better translated as "The Treasure Source of Siddhi," "The Treasure That Gives Rise to Siddhi," or a third alternative that i haven't thought of yet?

Any help appreciated ASAP!

Well, it looks like gter 'byung means a history of the revelation of a terma or termas, similar to how "chos 'byung" can mean a history of the Dharma. Perhaps that helps?

In this case gter 'byung is definitely part of the proper title of the text, as it's a lineage prayer (bla rgyud gsol 'debs), and doesn't have anything to do with a terma cycle. It's related to one of the mandalas that Marpa transmitted to Ngok.
