Root guru? Mother sentient beings?

Postby saraswati » Wed May 14, 2014 1:29 pm

Dear friends: could someone give me the Tibetan (or even Sanskrit) terms for the above concepts?

I still don't understand the difference between guru/root guru/lama, but that is a topic for another subforum, maybe. But knowing the terms when they appear in chants would help.

Thank you in advance. And, happy Wesak to all!

Thank you! :namaste:

Does the concept of mother sentient being come from the Indian Mahayana tradition? Is there a Sanskrit term for this?
