Text & Study (25th Aug 2017: update on 5 topics, see below)
Under this topic ‘Text-study’ there will – in the not so far future (written 12th of July 2017) – be possible to find descriptions, links, articles about more in depth background information connected to the Mar-Ngok lineage generally, and the specific TWO MANDALAS of the Ngok tradition. The Ngok tradition is sometimes described by the ‘The 7 Mandalas of Ngok’). And sometimes there is a mentioning of 13 mandala of Marpa. The SPECIFIC TWO MANDALAS of the Mar-Ngok tradition, that is delt with here is the Hevajra 9 deity mandala, and the Nairatmya 15 deity mandala.
The general information about the Mar-Ngok lineage will be articles on f.inst. Marpa, writen as a university master in Tibetology by Cecile Ducher from France. It could also be university articles about Ngoks-lineage like Marco Walthers article about the Ngok Kagyu from the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität München, 2016. It could also be a Ph.D. about the Ngok tradition.
More specifically this sub-page will also adress the texts specially connected to the compilations made by H.H. Drikung Kyabgön Thrinley Lhundrub during 2006 to 2011 and also later. Some of these texts are translated to english, some also to german. There are translations on the way in french and taiwanese. Here will also be able to follow ongoing translations-works-in progress.
For now (25th of August 2017), you will be able to find some information under these 5 headlines. Enjoy! Sarwa Mangalam.
