Garab Dorje Guru Yoga

Postby Fa Dao » Sun Aug 07, 2011 4:49 am

In the book, The Golden Letters, there is a Guru Yoga practice associated with Garab Dorje. Does the lung given by ChNN for Garab Dorje allow one to do this practice?

The lung Rinpoche gives is for the practice from his own Longsal cycle.
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

The Short Tun or the Guru Yoga of the white A both take Garab Dorje(representing the union of all masters) as the object of refuge.

edit: eh, misread, not sure about the one in the Golden Letters.

Could the mantra of Garab Dorje, "Om Ah Guru Prajnabhava Hevajra Sarva Siddhi Hum" be used by anyone in the same way that the Vajra Guru mantra of Padmasambhava is used?

The point is to receive the direct transmission. This is a guru yoga practice.
The Blessed One said:

"What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.
