yamantaka mantra garland

Postby bryandavis » Sun Oct 07, 2012 2:44 pm

Greetings. I was fortunate enought to have taken the empowerment of Solitary Yamantaka from H.H. when he was in Long Beach, Ca april of 2012. I practice mainly Drikung Kagyu lineage but like a lot of us have a strong devotion to H.H. The Dalai Lama. My question is this, and this is after not being being able to go the the commentary teachings at Thubten Dargye Ling in LongBeach after the empowerment, and this is after looking at yamantaka.org, and google and of course in the sadhanas themselves that were provided they do not specify... What way do the mantra garlands rotate in this practice?

Anyhow, thanks for your time in advance. Oh, and if there are those of you who dont like to answer this becasue it is a HYT and want to keep it private you could email me at bryanretreat@hotmail.com

Clockwise.

Generally speaking-- Father Tantras clockwise, Mother Tantras counterclockwise.

Thanks for the reply.

Here is one more question to anybody who practices this sadhana. I copied this link http://www.yamantaka.org/practice/sadha ... ation.html which has the mantra chain and seed syllable. the mantra chain is facing inwards arranged clockwise, does that mean that it does not rotate and only light from the mantra garland goes out during recitation?

Hi Bryan,

Besides the information and commentary I sent through messaging here at Dharma Wheel,
I messaged you important information today, you wrote me twice so I realize you
need to clear your questions completely.
I wrote you ASAP with more detailed information. I'll email you as well.

Take good care,
Wishing you Blessings,
T. Chokyi
