  1. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Ekajati, Charya Tantra, and Mahakala



    There was a suggestion that Mahasukha Ekajati was a secret bundle in Mahakarunika.

    That sounded familiar, because in Dharani Samgraha, after Sragdhara...
  2. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Avalokiteshvara Companions



    The Dharani Samgraha seems to be a compilation which adds a Nepali accent and slashes grammatical rules. So quite a few of its pieces exist elsewhere in standard...
  3. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Bhima and Sulini, Mahamaya Vijaya Vahini and Guhyajnana Dakini



    The first two deities here are ones we have found to be mantricly absorbed and continued in Buddhism as Gandhari and Ekajati. The...
  4. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Tara Seventeen and Harini


    This is some unintentional irony, since, if this Tara has a form epithet, it is something like Foot Stomper:

    ture-pādâghāte


    and if we remove some "ands" from...
  5. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Varuni, Parnasabari, and Yamini




    Same thing happened again. When you get your junction box repaired, leave it unguarded so it will be destroyed again in two days. Those goats are some of my...
  6. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Varuni and Armor, Vairocani and the Daityas



    When going through the Gauris or Pisacis as we found them in ancient dharani literature, they included Gandhari, who turns out to be something like...
  7. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Gandhari and Mahabharata characters, Kurukulla, Pancha Raksa 206


    In Tara's song, at least two of the Pancha Raksa are ordinarily included, Mayuri and Pramardani.

    That does not mean they all...
  8. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Sitabani or Sitavati



    This is an idea for Tara One that is not the most grand, but perhaps the most educational.

    There is only one charnel ground where Buddha dwelt that later became known...
  9. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Mitra's mandalas, Parnasabari, Marici, and a rare tantric synopsis


    Wonder of wonders. Our goats destroyed the phone line, which is the likely result of exposed cables dangling in midair versus...
  10. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Bhrkuti, 108 Names of Tara and Lalita Mahatmya/Brahmanda Purana



    Bhrkuti has a sense of humor, not so much about confusion over which of her forms is supposed to be peaceful or wrathful, but...
  11. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Day--Night Tara


    Neither Rinjung Gyatsa nor IWS had any lineage information about this. I was able to find in a Sakya catalog:

    Sādhana of sGrol ma Nyin zhi mtshan khro and collected rituals...
  12. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Twenty-one Praises of Tara



    This is a common song which is a bit difficult to learn if you are not a native speaker. Right now we are going to exclude the translation. That is because it is a...

    Vajrapani's Six Yogas, Vajra Surya and Vajramrita, Buddhakapala, and Karma Family Tara



    Rotation of Yoginis is really a perpetual clock starting on the Winter Solstice. It is explained in...

    Guhyasamaja, Vajrasattva and Vajradhara, Dharmadhatu Vajra and Vajradhatvishvari



    The Guhyasamaja Tantra is based on a character I discovered elsewhere. Alex Wayman had come up to the question...
  16. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Tara and the multiple families of Mamaki and Vajradhatvishvari


    Martin Wilson noticed that in Tara Tantra, the colors of the Mothers are "unusual".

    But not necessarily. As we have seen, this...
  17. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Tara Tantra, Vajra Family, and Ekajati and Vajra Tara


    When the song is used in the tantra, it leads to a mandala based on simple Taras who do not represent Families, only colors. It starts with...
  18. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Yes, pretty much.

    Power outage just trashed the next post where I was going to include such a caveat.

    It is kind of touchy--yes, for most people for the most part, the "erasure of concepts" by...
  19. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Tara Tantra and MMK, World Cycles


    One of the main uses of the song does not deal with twenty-one Taras, but nine. However it is a specific practice. If we just pull out the song, it is a...
  20. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Twenty-one Taras and Krsna Yamari


    According to a Jonang site's list of the Twenty-one Taras of Suryagupta or Ravigupta:
