FIRE SWORD OF BLACK GARUDA – TSEM TULKU TEACHES
Here is a Youtube teaching by Tsem Tulku Rinpoche from a sadhana by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
The practice was taught during the SARS epidemic of 2004. Lama Zopa Rinpoche produced a practice from which Tsem Tulku taught. There are minor discrepancies e.g. ‘benza’ (Tibetan) instead of ‘vajra’ (Sanskrit)
Here is the Youtube teaching, in which Tsem Tulku explains the practice for those who have not received HYT empowerments and therefore cannot self-generate as Lord Garuda.
The videos are parts 3&4 of a 4-part instruction on White Tara and Black Garuda.
The teachings on Black Garuda begin 37 minutes into Part 3:
Part 4 continues Black Garuda instruction and draws the threads of both practices together:
The source Lama Zopa document is available here:
Please don’t self-generate as Garuda without an HYT initiation. J
Tsem Tulku refers to Black Garuda as ‘BG’ at times in the videos. He switches from a light-hearted approach to a very serious delivery of this practice.
The practice is one I use often, as it has great power. 🙂
