Gampopa work?

Postby kirtu » Wed Dec 21, 2011 11:07 pm

This title is supposed to be from Jewel Ornament of Liberation and is apparently the Chapter 1 title:

From this , the title:

= chapter one
= cause ?
= bliss
= (v) to chop, split
= essence, womb, core (why is matrix suggested as a term?)

Is a term for Tathgathagarbha?

Tathagatha is . Is the text in error?

Thanks!

Matrix is a synonym for womb.

You missed a drengbu: the title is "Chapter 1: The Cause, Buddha-nature"

is sugatagarbha. (tathāgata) and (sugata) are easily confused in their abbreviated forms and . To add to the confusion, in Sanskrit the standard term is tathāgatagarbha, whereas in Tibetan it's sugatagarbha.
