Pegyal Lingpa's Seven-line Prayer Sadhana

I am looking for a digital version of Pegyal Lingpa's Seven-line Prayer sadhana. I received the lung from Gochen Tulku Sang-ngak Rinpoche. My regular email address [email protected] if you'd be willing to share it with me.

Thanks

Re: Need help to identify a Nyingmapa hat

It's called a Rigdzin Shamu and it is worn during certain ceremonies or certain parts of ceremonies to confer majesty and glory on the practitioner.

Meant to say "Root Guru." I have double vision due to myasthenia gravis. So I make many typos. Sorry.

Re: Is transmission needed to recite the Immaculate Confession Tantra?

Long confessions mainly just list one's possible infractions. At the end, the actual purification is accomplished by Vajrasattva. So just do Vajrasattva while enumerating your own downfalls and faults. There's nothing superior to Vajrasattva when doing purification, especially remembering/recognizin...

Re: Prayers for my father

Consider having some version of Vajra Nakhi/Dorje Dermo said. This Dorje Dermo (an activity Dakini) is specific for problems affecting one's family and problems between family members. There is the dharani in the Compendium of Dharanis (gZung 'Dus) as well as sadhanas by various famous Gurus. It wil...

Re: Is transmission needed to recite the Immaculate Confession Tantra?

Yes, you need lung. However, if you have strong faith in this shakpa, you can begin without lung as long as you make the strong intention that you will get the lung as soon as possible.

Re: Cockroaches

Back in NYC in 1970-74, my Teachers were in the habit of leaving out lots of food offerings. Needless to say, we developed a huge roach problem. However, They wouldn't even consider exterminating them. Since Their apartment was also our center, we all became very intimately connected with roaches. D...

Re: Incense burners

When I was doing pilgrimage in Sikkim several years ago, our guide was a Lama Jigdam, a close friend of my Teacher Lama Dawa Chodrak. We offered Riwo Sangchod every day. Sometimes there was no sang-bum (sang burning pot) where we were visiting. So we would have to look around to find some suitable v...

Re: Is it okay to re-offer candles weve had to put out?

Oh dear, I didn't mean to cause confusion. I was just thinking that every day I light a 15-hour votive candle in a glass candle holder. Recently I started to buy ones made in Vietnam. About 5% of the time, the candle goes out some time during the night. So the next morning I relight the candle in or...

Re: Is it okay to re-offer candles weve had to put out?

Of course, if we have to put a candle or lamp out that we have offered, then we do what we need to do. But then we can't offer it again. ABO. Also, I think sometimes it's easy to forget that the candles and lamps on our altars are offerings and not decorations for our enjoyment. Just saying. Peace o...

Re: Is it okay to re-offer candles weve had to put out?

Adamantine. Of course, you do what your Teacher tells you to do. If the Khenpo Brothers are your Teachers, then, absolutely you should follow Their teachings. For me, I have never, ever seen any of my Teachers in the U.S., Nepal, India, or Tibet put out an offering lamp. Move it somewhere safe, yes....

Re: Is it okay to re-offer candles weve had to put out?

No. They've already been offered (ABO). They are no longer yours. Best to allow them to burn completely out on their own. there are several ways of doing this safely such as putting on top of glass, putting in a glass or metal coaster, putting in a shallow pan of water. This is why many, many temple...

Re: Solitary Retreat schedule

Typically four 3-hour sessions per day beginning at 4 AM with possibly a couple of shorter sessions in between (for instance for sang, sur, Protectors, chod, etc). But what you do in these four sessions and any shorter sessions depends on what you are trying to accomplish in the retreat, what main s...

Sorry, I should've said H.H. Dudjom Sangay Pema Zhepa Rinpoche.

Re: 108 great tertöns

The way I heard it is that Chogyur Rinpoche offered to include Dudjom Lingpa's termas in the Rinchen Terdzod but Dudjom Lingpa said no need, that where the Rinchen Terdzod was, there also would be His termas. Seems accurate so far.
