tantra of the shining lamp, Tantra of Flaming Light. [JV]

The Blazing Lamp Tantra. One of the list of 17 Dzogchen tantras. Tantra of the Radiant Lamp. This tantra teaches how to identify the "lamps" related to awareness, their terminology, analogies for how wisdom arises, the unity of awareness, how to clear misconceptions about self-cognizance, and how to practice. [RY]

Note: The names, numbers and the tantras themselves in these lists may vary from teacher-to-teacher, tradition-to-tradition. Some call for 17, some call for 18, and some add still an additional tantra making the total 19. See also Seventeen Tantras of the Great Perfection and Eighteen Dzogchen Tantras for further reference.
