Namo Guru Ratna Vardhaya
« on: October 31, 2012, 07:46:52 pm »
Hi All,

Do you know the meaning of Vardhaya?
Enlightenment is simply the clearing away of misunderstanding. When mistaken thinking is gone, liberation has happened. (Gampopa)


When we verbally indicate a thing as 'this' or 'that', our words, like rabbits's horns, are hollow names, mere fictive imputation upon what does not exist. (Longchenpa)

Hi All,

Do you know the meaning of Vardhaya?

An online Sanskrit-to-English dictionary says it means "having congratulated"

The rest is "Name of the precious guru .... " or something like that.

What mantra is that?

Probably Hindu?

Thank you.

It is in the beginning of sadhana - Union of Chenrezig and Mahamudra.

Interesting. 

If it's a Mahamudra sadhana, it should be studied and practiced under the guidance of a lineage holder.  Do you have one to work with?  He/She could explain the meaning.
