transcribed Khenchen Thrangu talk?

Postby anjali » Mon Sep 17, 2012 1:38 am

Greetings,

There is an audio (and video) recording of Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche giving a discourse on Mahamudra: Eliminating the Darkness of Ignorance: http://www.namsebangdzo.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=14893. Does anyone know if this has been transcribed into a text for purchase?

I find it odd that, of the three texts by Wangchuk Dorje--Pointing out the Dharmakaya, Eliminating the Darkness of Ignorance and Ocean of Definitive Meaning, there are printed commentaries available on the restricted texts (Pointing and Ocean) and no printed commentaries available for the text we can purchase (Eliminating). Or at least none that I am aware of.

This is a translation of the root text http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Mahamud ... 8185102139

We are all here to help each other go through this, whatever it is.
~Kurt Vonnegut

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
- Longchenpa

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

-Longchenpa

I'm guessing that is the same as this? http://www.amazon.com/The-Mahamudra-Eli ... +ignorance

I have the root text. What I would like is a commentary to go along with it. For example, there is a root text by Dakpo Tashi Namgyal called Clarifying the Natural State: A Principal Guidance Manual for Mahamudra: http://www.amazon.com/Clarifying-Natura ... ural+state.
In addition to the root text, there is an excellent commentary to Namgyal's text by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche called Crystal Clear: Practical Advice for Mahamudra Meditators: http://www.amazon.com/Crystal-Clear-Pra ... pd_sim_b_5
The combination makes for an excellent way to study the root text.

I was hoping to find an available companion commentary text by KTR for Eliminating the Darkness. Unfortunately, I can't find one by him or anyone else, and the only commentary I have been able to find at all is the audio recording by KTR.
