Kurukulle

Postby namoh » Thu Nov 22, 2012 2:47 am

does anyone know anything about the tradition of Kurukulle that comes through Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo? ie it's origins, is it from terma or from an earlier Sakya source?
Much thanks.

I think there are several. But I did receive a Kurukulle or Lotus dakini that was a terma by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo.

Interesting, and thank you. Is it connected in any way to Chokgyur Lingpa's Padma Dakini/Kurukulle? Pardon an ignorant question.

Not in any obvious way except that the deity is exactly the same. Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo has written a lot of sadhana's and commentaries to the Chokling Tersar so he might have written something about the Lotus Dakini also.

It's been a while since I've read this so I don't know if it helps to answer your question directly, but it's a very good teaching:

Thanks both. I just find myself woefully ignorant of Khyentse Wangpo's termas.
