Four mantras

Postby oberon_rex » Sat Oct 08, 2011 2:55 pm

Hi

During Chogyal Namkhai Norbu's recent retreat in Barcenlona he gave the lung for four mantras and alluded to a book that was available. I haven't been able to listen to any other recent webcasts so can anyone provide some more info on these mantras? And what the book is called? And where I can get it from?

Thank you.

The book is called "The Four Methods Of Development". You can get it from SSI Italy webstore. The mantras are for eliminating negative factors which arise from conflicts between various elements according to Tibetan astrology and increase one's life, body, capacity and fortune.
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

hi i am considering getting the book...is it more about on how to calculate whether our elements are in conflicts or more on how to balance them?

thanks!

It would be better to concentrate on the gradual path.

dear whoever seen the book and/or have the knowledge,

so finally i got the book and have one question, there are matras to recite and to write on the scarf or tshirt but what we are suppose to do with the Chakras? hang it on the wall or wore as an amulets?

thank you!

Thank you dear Namdrol!

would that be ok to scan and print the Chakra or it should be handmade?
