Transmission

(tib.: lung) Transmission is usually translation for lung. Although lung has also different meanings, in this case, it refers to oral transmission of mantra or text given to a student by a lineage holder, which is a preliminary to doing the practice. Another meaning of lung is a ritual reading or recitation of the Vajrayana text. The mere hearing of the syllables transmits their inner meaning.
