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

    Pravargya and Agni Homa




    In Pravargya or Preparation, there was a fairly specific name for the Milk used.



    1) Gharma (घर्म):—m. (√2. ghṛ) heat, warmth (of the sun or of fire), sunshine,...
  2. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Homa and Agni's Fires




    The preview that comes up as Notes on Sources is fairly readable, and starts with Homa in Nepal found in MMK, and has several including Krishna Yamari Tantra, Vasanta...
  3. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Samputa and Ramya, Mahabala and Jambhala and conversion of the Ten Wrathful Ones




    Samputa Tantra has just been published ca. 2020. Besides finding its mantras and so forth, it turns out the...
  4. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Agni Homa, Swayambhu Purana, and Preparation




    Homa is a bit like an accumulation of everything. It takes a whole Buddhist Guru Yoga sadhana and immerses it into a larger ceremony. It is not...
  5. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Khandaroha


    Circle of Bliss 73 says that Varuni is also known as Khandaroha.


    This may be the case, but, I cannot really find a scriptural source for it.

    One of the things about that book,...
  6. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Dattatreya, Ekajati--Vajrangi, Jnana Yoga, Parnasabari and Gauris, Dhyanas and core of Dakarnava



    I was about to put something together, but almost confused a couple of things, Agha and Anga....
  7. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Ghasmari and Samputa Tantra with Gauris' mantras



    What is rather strange is that when we as outsiders pore over Buddhist Yoga, it tells us that a spiritual practice is called a Sadhana. On the...

    Re: Ivermectin

    We use it all the time on our goats and yes a person can take it, probably not the whole tube, but some. My question was isn't it just a manufactured substitute for Wormwood?


    Isn't the...
  9. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Viraja, Usnisas, Yakshas, and Mayuri




    I have been curious about this for a while, since Viraja is a relatively rare, understated close companion of her more famous neighbor, Vimala, who has...
  10. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Sosaling or Sitabani, Seven Syllable deity, Parnasabari and Nadis




    Shangpa is not an institution, it is a bundle of transmissions in Kagyu, which came through Khyungpo Naljor. The Shangpa...
  11. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Parnasabari, Ghasmari, Lankesvari and Viraja





    Studying an 1809 Nepalese Tsog Tsin (Refuge or Merit Accumulation Field, comparable to "pantheon") painting, Alice Getty found a Pyramid of...
  12. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Bhairavi and Virya



    First from the prior post, there was some confusion in Lay Religious Movements about whether Lato Marpo had damaged the system; there was another teacher by the same...
  13. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Khaganana, Manohara, Lama




    I am not yet sure why I have said that the Shakti Kakini "is" the Buddhist Agniyogini.

    We can say the latter is an outer form of Khaganana, who in turn is...
  14. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Carcika, Ghoracandi, Khaganana, Sabaris



    Something happened which seems to be directly from thinking about her.

    It is from being unsatisfied with "also known as" lists of aliases. We don't...
  15. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Ishvari, Gauris, Vajrayogini, Lamas, and Carcika




    It is unlikely we will find images of Gauris meeting Anandagarbha's description for Dakini Jala. The art site barely has anything about it,...
  16. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Gauris and Vajraraudris



    These are two retinue rings, the Gauris being almost universal in all the tantras, the others much more elusive. Or, almost. Gauris are always about the same, but...
  17. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Manohara



    We found that essentially the first Union is between Takkiraja and Manohara, which is between:


    Takkin, (adj. -n.) (fr. takka1) thinking, reasoning, esp. sceptically; a sceptic

    Siddharajni, Dharma Tara, Six Yoginis and Dakini Jala Families, synonyms and degrees of Samadhi, Cunda, Manohara






    What looks like Jamgon Kongtrul's Treasury of Kagyu Mantras really looks...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
