Taranatha books in Ling Monastry


Tibetan antiquarian” in describing his efforts to jot down stone pillar inscriptions in Lhasa and at Samye that date from the 8th and 9th centuries, the Nyingma master Rigzin Tsewang Norbu was a lover of rare books.In fact, it seems that he was a bit of a Buddhist bibliophile.

About a hundred years after Tāranātha’s death in the spring of 1635, and seventy-five years after the confiscation of Takten Damchö Phuntsok Ling Monastery, the Dzogchen master from Kathog Monastery in Kham, Rigdzin Tsewang Norbu (1698-1755), made a visit to Jonang to print the books that were sealed-up in the printery. Most likely spurred by a conversation with his friend and disciple Situ Panchen Chokyi Jungne (1699/1700-1774), this particular trip was actually Tsewang Norbu’s third visit to Takten Ling.

A legend on Monday halted for now the stocktaking at the Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple here where treasures said to be worth Rs 1 lakh crore have been found.
Monday was the seventh day of knowing how much valuables were packed in the six chambers, two of them not opened for nearly 150 years. The Supreme Court had ordered the exercise.

Retired judge M.N. Krishnan told reporters that ‘some sort of expertise’ would be needed to open chamber B.

Krishnan said a seven-member committee appointed by the Supreme Court and headed by him would meet on Friday. ‘I have nothing more to say.’

The committee is making an inventory of the six chambers in the temple premise.

The estimated worth of the gems and jewellery found in five of the six chambers is unofficially put at a whopping Rs 1 lakh crore ($22 billion). The committee has not confirmed this figure.

The erstwhile royal family of Travanacore, which maintains the temple, believes that opening chamber B would be a bad omen.

A royal family source told IANS that many legends were attached to the temple and that chamber B has a model of a snake on the main door.

‘This is a clear indication that the door should not be opened because opening it might be a bad omen. I don’t think the team can open it because there is a lot of faith attached to the temple,’ said the source.

Another legend says that there is a tunnel at the bottom of the chamber that leads to the sea.

The stocktaking was ordered by the Supreme Court following a petition by advocate T.P. Sundararajan over alleged mismanagement of the temple affairs.

The team is expected to present an interim report to the Supreme Court.

Tight security arrangements are in place on the temple premises. A 24-hour police control room has been opened and round-the-clock mobile patrolling is on.

GARUDA MANTRA’ ONLY CAN EXTRICATE THE ‘NAGA BANDHAM’ OF SECRET CHAMBER –B. Now the time has come to unveil the highly mysterious Chamber- ‘B’ the sixth vault in the underground of the Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swamy temple, for which the Supreme Court of India has not yet given consent to the seven member search committee heded by former Kerala High Court Judge C.S.Rajan. This chamber is being considered by the Trust members and other learned Astrologers of India, as highly mysterious, sacred and risky and dangerous to unveil it. Because the steel door of the Chamber-B is having two big Cobra portraits on it, and this door have no nuts, bolts or other latches. It is considered to be fixed to the secret chamber with the ‘Naga bandham’ or ‘Naga paasam’ ‘Mantras’ by the then ‘siddha purashas’ lived during the reign of King Marthandavarma of 16th century. A door of such secret vault can be opened by a highly erudite ‘Sadhus’ or ‘Mantrikas’ who are having the knowledge of extricating ‘Naga Bandham’ or ‘Naga Pasam’ by chanting ‘Garuda Mantra’. Except in that way, the door can not be opened by any means by anyone. At present no where in India or in the world such highly sacred and powerful ‘Siddhapurshas’ or ‘Yogis’ or ‘Mantrikas’ who does know how to execute highly sacred ‘Garuda mantra’ are existing.
