Please note: In order to practice this  Ultimate Guru Sadhana, one must have received the reading transmission Oral transmission (Tib. ལུང་, lung; Wyl. lung; Skt. āgama). It is important to receive an oral transmission (sometimes called ‘aural transmission’ or ‘reading transmission’) from a teacher, in order to create an auspicious connection with a particular text or practice. In the case of tantric texts, such as sādhanas or commentaries, this transmission occurs once one has received the relevant empowerment.

The reading transmission is passed down from master to student when the student listens to the teacher reading a text for which he or she holds a transmission, ultimately going back to the author of the text. In this way, the student receives the blessing of the lineage without which he or she will not be able to understand the text fully in all its depth. Some teachers even consider it inappropriate to look at and read a dharma text for which one has not yet received a transmission.
