The Six Dharmas Practice Manual (541 pages, $150) contains the instructions given to the Vajradhatu/Shambhala community by the Venerable Tenga Rinpoche, the teacher primarily responsible for transmitting the six dharmas practice to our community, as well as the teachings given to the Söpa Chöling retreatants (the retreat facility at Gampo Abbey) by the Venerable Thrangu Rinpoche, and all the talks by Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche on this topic–both from his many Karme Chöling programs and elsewhere. This Manual along with the Six Dharmas Main Practice Texts are essential for engaging in these practices.
The complete set of materials is listed here. Each item must be ordered separately.
Practicing this sadhana requires a lung, and the abhisheka for the manual. If you have received it, type “I have received the (name of lung/abhisheka) from (name of teacher) in (year).” If you are ordering the “Iron Hook of Compassion,” please state when you completed powa practice.

The practice manual, which includes instructions from Ven. Thrangu Rinpoche, is 34 pages. The text and manual are restricted to persons who have completed powa practice in the context of the six dharmas of Naropa.
