FAQ, Tips and Tricks about the new Daily Sadhana book

FAQ


What is the best way to familiarise myself with the new practice book?
We recommend that you read the introduction to the book which explains a lot about the new format of the book.

In which language is the Daily Sadhana book available?
The Daily Sadhana book is currently only available with English translation.
Translation into other languages will be available later.

Will it be translated in French / German / Spanish / Italian?
It is now being translated into other languages. We will send out news as soon as these translations are completed and become available.

How do I know which package I should order ?
The new book is available in 4 packages according to empowerments and permissions you have received. Please carefully read the description on the Dharmakosha or Zam website page and order only the package and practices you have received empowerments for.

I have all the empowerments needed for package 1, but I hope to receive other empowerment in the future. Shall I already order package 2?
No. You should order only the texts you can practice now. When you receive permission and empowerments for other practices, you can get them easily, and only need to pay shipping cost for the printed files. The book has been designed in a modular way, so it is easy to insert new sections into it.

How do I know which empowerments I have received ?
You can check on this Rigpa wiki page

I’ve been practising Magön Chamdral during Tsok in my Rigpa centre, should I continue ?
From now on Ma Gön Chamdral should only be practised by those who have received the entrustment (katé in Tibetan) of Ma Gön Chamdral. However, there are exceptions for people who have been practising Ma Gön Chamdral regularly or took a commitment. Please ask for more updates and guidance about these new instructions at your local centre.

How do I know if I received the Katé ?
The Magön Chamdral katé was given on only 4 occasions to the Rigpa sangha:
—by Yangthang Rinpoche in Lerab Ling on 8 August 2012 as part of the 2 month retreat, to the whole assembly, and
—by Trulshik Rinpoche to very small groups of students in Lerab Ling in 1999, 2003 and 2005. People from those groups took a life-time commitment to practise it daily without fail; they know who they are!
The katé was NOT given to the general assembly by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche at Prapoutel, nor by Penor Rinpoche or Trulshik Rinpoche at Lerab Ling. 

If I have received the Katé, how do I order the Magön Chamdral practice ?
Please fill this online request form

Does Package 3 or 4 (for Dzogchen mandala students) includes Magön Chamdral?
No. Not all Dzogchen Mandala students have received the Magön Chamdral entrustment (katé). If you did receive the katé, you need to request the text separately by filling out this form.

I ordered the download version only but would like to order the printed version now, what should I do ?
Please email your request to the Zam team at orders@zamstore.com with following details : Zam order number for your download purchase, first name, last name and postal address ... you will be asked to pay only for the difference in price + shipping costs.

I ordered the wrong version/package, what should I do ?

I’ve just received a Vajrakilaya empowerment, how do I get the Vajrakilaya text for the Sadhana book ?
