Re: Yeshe Tsogyal Guru Yoga

There is a short GY from Dorje Dechen Lingpa and a longer one from (???) in the Karma Kagyu.
As Khandro Rinpoche gave a YT-Wang in the 90s the Kamalshila Institute in Germany had both sadhanas in the DharmaShop.

Re: Must read books?

I would recommend a book that explains that there is no "must read book" because it depends... but I do not know any :thinking: :good: It does depend. Personally, I see the three foundational pillars of my own path as practice, study/wisdom, and morality/compassion. Your own way may deemphasize stu...

Re: variations of 100 syllable mantra and meaning?

Yes. I think, it is a form of respect towards the teacher-student-relationship that we do not publish secret tantra materials at DW. If anybody talks about it freely elsewhere on the internet, it's their decision. And I think, it's a big difference, if a lama publishes certain mantras on his websit...

Re: Garchen Rinpoche Achi Empowerment and Seven Taras Supplication Teachings

OM DHARMA TARE SOHA (Her name in Sanskrit, with Tara in the vocative). Is there a sadhana with this short mantra? I couldn't understand the longer mantra - was it the common mantra ( yar du sarwa du)? No it was not. I unfortunately don't know which sadhana/cycle it was for. But it is a good idea to...

Re: Milarepa's famous mudra

It is derived from a Yoga-Asana..... but seems a little corrupted.
Lamas/Yogis who sang much teachings in verses are depicted with the hand near the ear: Drukpa Kunleg, Milarepa of course, Shabkar Rinpoche, etc.
