Not that I've ever seen... The famous ones are the Guru yogas of Karma Pakshi and Mikyo Dorje... Also the 16th Karmapa has a Sadhana he composed himself... There is apparently a Guru yoga of the 15th Karmapa, Khakyab Dorje , although I've never actually seen it. The present Karmapa composed a Guru yoga for the 1st Karmapa , Dusum Khyenpa... On the occasion of Karmapa 900.

The only Guru yoga I have specifically heard of in direct relation to Rangjung Dorje is linked to his 'Karma Nyingthig' Terma.... Which is a Guru yoga of Vimalamitra.

There is a Guru Yoga of the Third Karmapa called Zabdön Nyingtik by Dzongsar Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö.

Thanks! I'll check it out... I'm also sure I heard about a short Guru yoga by DKCL regarding Karma Pakshi.... I'll have a look.

Do you want to practice it? Is the 3rd Karmapa more important for you than the other ones?
I'm just curious and would like to understand why you ask this. :smile:

Best wishes, ayu

Hi Ayu,

no i don't search for a practice but i'm a bit confused about
how much possibilities for meditations there are and how to differentiate
them in terms of relevance and importance. I simply don't have any idea
what to do after ngöndro...

Best wishes
Chris

Hey Chris, don't worry.
This is the prototypical question for the most-used response on any Buddhist forum: Ask your teacher!
:smile:

Seriously, though....your teacher will confer with you when you "finish ngondro," and I'm sure there will be some new practice for you....
