Chogyal Namkhai Norbu The Practice and Action Mantras of Dark Garuda Terma of the Great Rigdzin Changchub Dorje with Oral Commentary of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu
The Practice and Action Mantras of Dark Garuda is reserved for those who have received the direct transmission of these mantras from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and were thus physically present at the Dark Garuda retreat at Merigar West on the days when the mantras were transmitted or at a later retreat on this Dark Garuda (closed webcast from Kunasangar North, July 25-29 2012).
This booklet contains an explanation of the practice of Dark Garuda along with the practice text and a collection of related mantras extracted from the Quintessence of the Profound Instructions of the Master (bLa ma zab don snying thig), a terma of the great Rigdzin Changchub Dorje.
The transmission of the practice and mantras was given by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu during a retreat on Dark Garuda in August 2011 at Merigar West in Arcidosso, Italy. The booklet includes a translation from Tibetan of Rigdzin Changchub Dorje’s Wish-Fulfilling Precious Vase: A Collection of Mantras from the Quintessence of the Profound Instructions of the Master. This text identifies the specific medical purpose of each of the mantras and provides instructions on the various substances to be used in conjunction with their recitation. The translation has been expanded with brief commentary passages based on the oral teaching given by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in the August 2011 retreat at Merigar.
For the sake of correct pronunciation of the mantras, the booklet is accompanied by a CD or MP3 recording of the sounds of these mantras as pronounced by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
