Pero wrote:What Rinpoche calls Ati GY is just the GY with the white A. In one book he says that this is more Yangti style. What you're talking about is related to Rinpoche's terma on the GY of Garab Dorje. But in any case, there is refuge and bodhicitta, there just aren't any invocations for it. Refuge is Namo Guru etc., and bodhicitta you do with your intention. This is usually done at the beginning of every practice, after the purification.
you mention the guru yoga of white A.
Is this Guru Yoga of white A the one done from the emptiness side of things where you gradually dissolve everything and eventually experience emptiness?Or is this G Y. of white A a different name for G.Y. of Garab Dorje?I possible conflate the two:The G.Y. of the white A with the G.Y. where emptiness is emphasized and where G.Y of the white A is used as a foundation.
Is there a Guru yoga which is done from the clarity side of things where one experiences clarity ,where this would become obvious?
the clarity is something i have a problem with.This is very difficult to discover as Namdrol mentioned it somewhere.So i would be very curious to know if there is such a G.Y. where the clarity aspect becomes obvious.
