Triyik Yeshe Lama.

Postby kalden yungdrung » Wed Oct 19, 2011 4:58 pm


The 18de Tibetan Dzogchen Master Jigmed Lingpa, would be the author of a meditation guide titled: Triyik Yeshe Lama.

- Can somebody explain what the subjects are in above mentioned meditation guide?
- For what purpose is the guide written?

Perhaps I linked to the wrong book. Tony Duff has a version called "Wisdom Guru" as per this discussion:

"There is actually a better translation since that book came out. It is by Tony Duff.

Its called Wisdom Guru by Tony Duff. (Wisdom Guru is the english translation of yeshe lama).

At the time of that other thread, it was not known that the snowlion pub was flawed in a lot of ways. I hope I was not responsible for ralis spending $100 LOL. "

I've never read the previous version of Sangye Khandro and Lama Chonam's translation, but I have read the new one. Can't say I've found a single error in it. It's a very clear and straightforward translation.

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.

Namdrol,

Well, to be fair, I think Tony didn't want to sell it to me for good reasons; either he didn't want me to get mixed up and confused or waste my time in a practice I was not ready for or hurt myself or whatever the possible disadvantages are of starting thogal before you're ready. If you own texts about thogal would you fax me a copy? Probably not, eh? :D

Elitist or not, I really think that the translator should be the one who decides how their work is distributed and to whom. I've seen the whole "secret handshake" routine carried to ridiculous extremes, but after all, it's only through the efforts of the lotsawa that a particular translation exists at all.
