The Hundred-Syllable Mantra

Post by kalden yungdrung » Sun Jul 09, 2017 11:40 am

Tashi delek ,

The Hundred-Syllable Mantra, a form of purification, belongs to the Bön Ngöndro.

Here an additional chant , done by Geshe Tenzin Yangton.

The Hundred-Syllable Mantra:...
[Moderator's edit:
Reminder: Ngöndro excercises should be given by a teacher in direct personal lineage instead of anonymously collected from internet. Kalden Yungdrung is not authorized to teach/convey the Hundred-Syllable Mantra via Dharmawheel. For this reason he should refrain from doing so.]


To download the mp3 file for the prayer recited by Geshe Tenzin Yangton, go to: https://drive.google.com/open


Contemplation:
To conclude the session, imagine that all the manifestations of Shen Lha Ökar of the external world dissolve into light and dissolve into the Shen Lha Ökar that is above your crown. Imagine that the central Shen Lha Ökar appreciates that you are purified from your nonvirtuous deeds and defilements, and smiles. He dissolves into light, which is the unification of emptiness and bliss.

This light then dissolves into you. Then rest in contemplation, seeing the face of the spontaneously arising Shen Lha Ökar, which is the true state of your mind.


These are Preliminary Practices from Yanggon Monastery, for more information, please visit:

Tashi delek L,

Sorry, i do not know the English titles.

But guess that it is maybe a prayer to Shardza Tashi Rinpoche and Tsewang Rigdzin.

Yes, but each ngondro has some differences, not all have prostrations, for example. Somewhere I have seen a comparison of the three Bon ngondros, but I can't find it now.

It might depend on the Lama who is teaching it. In the pdf below on Akrid, there are no prostrations listed in the practices.


You can use the search term (A khrid) for Atri, there are videos on youtube.

Manual http://abhidharma.ru/A/Tantra/Content/Bon/0001.pdf

In the book "Oral Tradition from Zhang-Zhung, is a Bon dzogchen practice manual and the list of preliminary practices does not include prostrations.

Not only. It is also part of the Gyelwa Gyamtso practice. Moreover, you have several 100 syllable mantra in Bön.

Sure but these differences are probably not what you think they are.

Wrong. All Bön ngöndros have prostrations. They are performed together with refuge.

No, except if the master teaches a simplified version for overweight or busy westerners.

It is because they are performed together with Refuge.

Same answer: they are performed together with Refuge.

BTW Lung tha and Kalden Yungdrung are one and the same person, right ? I thought having two accounts was prohibited and against the rules...

Can you prove that Mrs. Mutsuk ?
Same like your previous accusation regarding that i would be in France imprisoned, which you published here on DW, what a shame
You have had luck that i did not went to the French Court and made more out of it.
Or again a try to make war based on old illusionary memories , based on protectionism?
You together, better explain Bön Dharma here aboard.

Well, I don't think I have to, but it's something the mods can figure out quite easily. And I think every reader will see that pretty easily too when this "Lung tha" posts a little bit more, writng exactly like you (and no offense, but nobody writes like you)... And we'll all see if he "suddenly" decides to stop posting from now on... Come on KL, do you think people are stupid ? You were already using these two identities (and maybe more) on your own forum back in the day, asking questions to yourself... silly, no?
Same like your previous accusation regarding that i would be in France imprisoned, which you published here on DW, what a shame
I don't think I refered to France, you are being delusional. Simply, at that time your record was on the internet (and is maybe still there).
Or again a try to make war based on old illusionary memories , based on protectionism?
No, it just results from being bored at reading the volume of incorrect information you spread about Bon, and when it's not incorrect, it is barely understandable due to your chaotic grammar.

This is an example of the incorrect information that you give here.

The first link is about the recitative section of the preliminaries of the sKu-gsum rang-shar. It is often nicknamed as "rTsa rlung gsol 'debs", although it is not its original title which is actually "sNgon ‘gro rjes kyi tshig bshad thugs rjes myur gzigs".

The second link is not a prayer to Tsewang Rigdzin but a prayer by Tsewang Rigdzin. It was actually orally transmitted to rDzi bo Rig pa rang shar by Tsewang Rigdzin as the former was practicing in the sTong rgyung cave in gNam mtsho.

Hi L, :namaste:

I know that Dzogchen has some preliminaries, which are not the same as Ngöndro, they are called Korden Rushan.
Maybe it is this what you meant ?
