When Saraha encountered a wisdom dakini and began to engage in yogic practices, the King encouraged him to return to traditional monastic practice. In response, Saraha sang this doha. A doha is not a gradual and systematic instruction on practice. Rather it is a song expressing bliss resulting from personal realization. Upon hearing this doha, the King gained realization. Saraha’s doha presents ground, path and fruition mahamudra, first in summary and then more extensively using various analogies. Thrangu Rinpoche’s teaching provides clear, profound and extensive commentary on Saraha’s doha. Lama Yeshe Gyamtso translated. 12 talks. No chapter points.
Vajra Echoes Classic
designated as "Classics" on our website are great values. They
are impeccably recorded and produced teachings with no technical flaws
that might diminish their viewing or listening value. These teachings
are among those that we
have permanently reduced in price due to the older technology
in use at the time they were recorded. However, each teaching selected
as a Classic is noteworthy as an important and foundational dharma
jewel. Classics particularly stand out for excellence of topic, clarity
of translation and the quality of the recording. They are stellar
supports for your path of study and practice, and
essentials for your dharma library.
- Chapter Pointing on DVD video recordings
For most of the DVD recordings available for purchase on this website, chapter points have been set at each transition from Tibetan to English and from English to Tibetan. Because Rinpoche sometimes speaks in Tibetan for long periods at a time, some viewers may wish to jump forward to the English translation (at any time) by using the Next Chapter button (>>|) on their DVD player’s remote control. Also, for those who primarily speak Tibetan, the same process works for jumping from the English to the Tibetan. DVD video recordings that do not have chapter points inserted between the English and Tibetan teaching are designated “No Chapter Points”.
