Hello I and 2 others would like to get mirror divinations from Lama dawa rinpoche. However his website says he is in retreat and check back after march 2012. It seems obvious that the website hasn't been updated, because it's well after march and on Saraswati Bhawans Facebook it shows him active.

Does anyone in general, or specifically his students know if lama dawa rinpoche is currently doing any Mo divinations? If so who should I contact to send the questions in.

Thanks!

I received a mirror divination from Lama Dawa a few weeks ago. So I know He is doing them. I think it depends on the seriousness of the person's need, although don't quote me on that. Also, I am a student of Lama Dawa's. I don't know how much of a factor that is, but probably did play a part. In any case, give it a shot. What have you got to loose?

I'll be seeing Lama Dawa and His wife in a few days. I'll see if I can get clarification then. If it's just a matter of updating the website, I'll give gentle nudge.

Good luck and best wishes.

I think there is already a thread here about this topic.

I have consulted him twice and at first thought he was giving me information and advice which I simply couldn't follow - such as obtaining a very specific empowerment which was never available anywhere I could afford to get to. Then Dzogchen Rinpoche appeared in my area and offered exactly what I had been advised to receive. There was a gap of a couple of years so Lama Dawa could not have known.

The other divination he gave me was spectacularly accurate.

His answers are not vague, so make sure your question follows the guidelines given and is precise. :)

Thra-beb, mirror divination, is widespread within Tibetan Buddhism. It is not lineage specific, and there are a number of different sadhanas from a variety of sources. The ability often runs in families. However, this ability can be enhanced and refined by specific practices. It is typically mediated by a Protector, such as Tsheringma or Dorje Yudronma. I know of mirror diviners in both Nyingma and Gelug lineages. I assume that they exist in Kagyud and Sakya.

Does anybody know if Lama Dawa is currently available for these anymore? Or if other Lamas do? I was under the impression that he was hard to get a hold of.

Lama Dawa is currently in Mexico giving teaching there until later this summer. As far as I know, He is only doing mirror divinations that are really urgent and important.

One teeny caveat:

I actually received one mirror divination from Lama Dawa which turned out to be inaccurate. I'm not in the slightest trying to attack his personal character here, which I believe to be good, he just happened to err in a divination.

I believe those people I've met who testify for his uncanny insight and claim to have received stunningly accurate divinations from him, and I would not discourage anyone from seeking his counsel. I would advise applying a small grain of salt to the results of any divination, from whatever source, as my experience suggests that nothing in this zone of human experience can be absolutely relied on.
