Seb,about the "Further reading" sections. The recently published book includes two texts: one (the commentary) written by Pema Lungtok Gyatso, another one written by Dudjom Lingpa himself (song to Sarah), which is why I had put two links, and not one. http://www.berotsana.org/dl-chod/ We should keep two links, no? — --Yeshedorje 21:47, 28 October 2014 (UTC)


I find it quite problematic that a page like Troma Nakmo is dedicated to a practice of the Dudjom Tersar. There should be a general page on Troma Nakmo. There are many practices of Troma Nakmo, most famously one by Nyangral Nyima Ozer. That one is much much more important than this Dudjom practice, which is only very recent.

Now this gives a false impression that the Dudjom tersar is the one and only tradition in Tibetan and Indian Buddhism. I'm sure quite a few other pages are like this as well and this really needs to change. --Hankop (talk) 07:42, 12 May 2019 (UTC) For example see https://www.himalayanart.org/items/490 "The original practice lineage belongs to the Zhije School of Phadampa Sanggye but has now been adopted by all the Sarma Schools of Tibetan Buddhism to a greater or lesser extent. Troma Nagmo is also found in the Terma (Revealed Treasure) Tradition of the Nyingmapa School."

This lack of historical awareness by is problematic and misleading.

Your are 100% right. I will work on a splitting this page into two (and even more, one for each practices of each different lineages). --Yeshedorje (talk) 11:44, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
