I only know the 8 Kagye Nyingma Herukas, where Demchok is sometimes described as the same as Yangdag.....
What are the 8 to which Hevajra belongs?
Hevajra = Shri Heruka (yang dag), according to HHST.
Ah...ok!
Thank you!

Re: Red Yamantaka / Rakta Yamari Sadhana Text of Drikung Kagyu

Hi Lelopa, Thanks for your reply. I did find your post in this forum regarding this topic from some time ago, I believe you provided the source of that sadhana to the Drikung Terton Lho Nuden Dorje. Let's hope we can find the sadhana text somehow. Actually, at this point I would be very interested ...

Re: Garchen Rinpoche Dzogchen Empowerment

What are the prerequisites and commitments for this empowerment? Also, is there anywhere that I can learn more about this form of Padmasambhava? There you can find an explaination from Garchen Rinpoche about this empowerment/practice. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=3485507918165288&id=...

Yes, refuge and bodichitta prayers are universal, there’s no issue with that.
I do not know this sadhana but there are f.e. refuge-prayers to the special deity of the sadhana:
"I take refuge in the wrathful heruka" or
"I take refuge in this, or that long-life-deity, Dakini, "etc.

Just my 2¢

Re: Guru Yoga empowerment for Padmasambhava

Forgive me. I thought this might be of interest to the person looking for an online Guru Rinpoche empowerment. Perhaps you can see the source of my confusion.

Re: Garchen Rinpoche Dzogchen Empowerment

The Raktayamari empowerment was held in Los Angeles by Rinchen Choling. GBI never had the sadhana translated. I worked there at the time. Perhaps reaching out to Rinchen Choling is better for that. Also I think the Raktayamari was to connect his students with completion stage practices with in the ...
