Magical Noose: a nine deity profound sadhana of the Lord of the Dance (Tib. གར་དབང་འཕགས་པ་ལྷ་དགུའི་ཟབ་སྒྲུབ་འཕྲུལ་གྱི་ཞགས་པ་, Wyl. gar dbang 'phags pa lha dgu'i zab sgrub 'phrul gyi zhags pa) or Garwang Lhagu — a revelation from Tertön Sogyal, which is a sadhana focusing on the Lord of the Dance (Garkyi Wangchuk). In this terma practice in which nine deities are visualized, the female deity Padma Khandro is in union with the male deity, the Lord of the Dance, a form of Avalokiteshvara. Open group practice of this sadhana is held every year at Khenpo Jikmé Phuntsok's Larung Gar, in Sertar.
