Ngondro! Preliminaries! Rushen! Prostrations! Mandala offerings! Vajrasattva! Guru yoga! If these make you feel those unique feelings of guilt, triumph, aggression, equanimity, any ot it, you may be in the right community. I am hoping that those of us doing ngondro in whatever tradition, whether Tibetan or dzogchen or Celtic Buddhism or any other one that does ngondro, will be able to help and inspire each other.
