Subtle Winds

edited August 2010 in Philosophy
Sorry to start yet another thread.

The other day i posted about the Migsema Mantra of TsongKhapa in Guru Yoga. I was wondering about the kind of mantra the Migsema is.
I was reading the reccommended book when i had the most beautiful teaching that Mantra's are in letter form as words or deities they are speach when spoken as seed and sylables. But before they are speech they are formed in the channels of subtle winds. This is awesome news. I don't have an empowerment yet so i won't go into depth with this all. Plus i have trouble in the first place.
I just think its amazing that the forms of a mandala are actual sounds, (this i always knew in a way) but the sounds are actually subtle wind and this is revolutionary.
I do have a question. If this is true which im sure it is. Are regular forms also composed of conceptual sounds and therfore winds or are they not considered formed from subtle winds.

    Yep. You've had 47 hits, and frankly, nobody knows what the heck you're on about. Is there really any point in knowing?
    I'd just leave the questioning, or maybe write to the author and ask him/her.
    But nobody's going to answer here, because frankly, I think this is getting into the realms of the imaginatively esoteric.
