Just wanted to share a message from KTD:
Here's some information about Lama Karma (from http://www.kagyu.org/ktd/teachers.php):Dear all,
Lama Karma Drodhul has created a group on google.com <http://google.com/> for ngondro practitioners of the Karma Kagyu lineage. He personally leads ngondro practice here at KTD and is very enthusiastic about helping others with their practice. As the ngondro group here grows, Lama Karma would like to invite practitioners in the wider sangha to participate via the google group. Lama offers support to all levels of ngondro practitioners, including anyone interested in beginning ngondro and those wishing to renew an inactive practice.
Please read Lama Karma's message to everyone:Ngondro practice is one of my favorite practice and I do it daily. Understanding that without proper purification and solid foundation, the realization is too far for us. Ngondro practice brings, humble, purification, gathering accumulation of merit, understanding the basic principle practice of Tibetan Vajra Yana Buddhism and brings great merit doing with group.
I handle any levels of practice of Ngondro and I do myself practice with the group. I give reading transmission, instructions, how to chant the Sadhana etc. So if anyone would like to start Ngondro practice or those people who practicing Ngondro practice group where you can ask questions, here is the link...http://groups.google.com/group/Ngondrogroup?lnk=gcimh" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
I know this will bring great benefit for many people as it did for these few months!
