I'm thinking of attending a lung of the Tshig Don Mzod. I have "Buddhahood in this Life" trans. by Malcolm. And I understand that the lung for that text will be offered by webcast. Considering that Longchenpa's text is an expansion/revision of the former, is there any reason, related to practice, why I should attend an in-person lung of the Tshig Don Dzod, or would getting the lung of the text Malcolm translated suffice for practical purposes?

Thank you in advance.

For practical purposes, receiving the lung for "Buddhahood in This Life" is sufficient. There is nothing missing in that text. As you noted, the Tshig Don Dzod is an expansion of the topics covered in Malcolm's text.

You should attend the lung of the Tsigdon Dzod, by all means.

There is an additional benefit to the production of translations by professional Buddhist publishers — these books enter the Library of Congress. One cannot hope to see most independently published books there. They have strict rules about what books they accept and how to submit them.
I found it easy to submit books to the Library of Congress—my second indy-published Buddhist teen novel is there. I don't believe they are selective at all—you just have to have an ISBN. There is a process of obtaining a Preassigned Control Number (PCN) that must be done prior to publication. You send physical books on your release date.

Now I'm confused. I read on another forum that it was rescheduled for September. :shrug:

either way I'm looking forward to it

Time to write down a post-it note with date, and put on the fridge - looking very much forward to this :)

If you want this text and genuinely can not afford to order it, I will purchase it for you just pm me.
I can purchase one maybe two copies, first come first serve.
