Re: Im too slow at Ngongdro, help :(

In a 3yr one practitioner broke down about a year into it and said to the retreat master "Rinpoche, I'm trying really, really hard, but I'm finding this all so difficult"... after a short pause, Rinpoche replied "What else do you expect, you've been caught in the habitual patterns of samsara from be...

Re: 21 Tara's - which is Ekajatis prayer?

I'm just guessing but I would not have expected for Ekajati to appear in the 21 Taras, as they represent the outer cycle of Tara and Ekajatic represents the most secret aspect. Different appearances, but may be related for sure. Like one doesn't see Troma Nakmo in the 21 Taras... does one?

I find what you are saying is rather vague, at least to an ignoramus like myself. But if you are looking for information on Kalachakra, Khentrul Rinpoché is reported to be a specialist in this lineage.

Re: Info on Khandro Nyingthig

The Khandro Nyingthig and the Vima Nyingthig from the Nyingthig Yabshi are deeper practices than the standard Nyingthiks one enters after ngon.dro. What I have been taught is that you first go through doing the maha, anu and ati practices of, say. the Longchen Nyingthik first, then one moves onto ei...
