What if the liver is not completely failed, he is back to work and they are testing to see if he will need a transplant?

Probably garuda.

Probably garuda.
Does blue or red make a difference?

[quote="Malcolm"][/quote]

Which one is best?

Or doesn't it matter?

I understand that in the DC practice of Red Garuda all forms of Garuda can be invited, but don't know if that is also true of Dark Blue as the teachings are imminent, and know nothing of White Garuda in this respect.

Generally, Mandarava for reinforcing lifeforce, garuda for eliminating disease, lots of mantra of five elements also. Either Garuda practice.

Thanks.

Has ChNNR ever given donwang for the White Garuda he mentions?

In terms of performing the Garuda practice for a sick person, before using the relevant Action Mantra, how much practice should be done with the main mantra?

If the guy needs help right now, will confidence in the main mantra suffice?

Main mantra includes all action mantras. However, you do the main mantra for a while in a qualified way -- one to three weeks, then you apply action mantra, if it works, than that is enough

In general, black garuda is connected with the cycle of teachings of which the srog sman medicine tantra is a part. So ChNN will give all action mantras related to that tantra this weekend. Last year he gave the lung for the whole tantra.

I'm getting the feel he might benefit from mandarava and garuda.
