- Maybe he was making a kind of joke, and the "golden cloud" he was referring to is the way the visual field appears when you are in certain stabilized states of meditation such as Rigpa. So you can't really study it at all in the academic sense and when he was telling you to study it, maybe he was just telling you to practice!

Does anyone know of a sutra, deity, possibly a mantra, called "The Golden Cloud"?
Over 25 years ago, I meet a very old, Tibetan Buddhist, lama during the time I was taking the Kalachakra empowerment.
He just walked up and asked me what I was doing there.
My answer, which I can not remember, must have satisfied him.
He nodded his head a few times, then told me, it was very important that I should study "The Golden Cloud".
He waited until I had written the title down, nodded a few more times, then, he turned and walked away.
I wish I could be more specific, but he did not say anything else about it.
At that time, I thought it would be easy to find.
It was not.
As the years have passed, I have found many golden this and golden that, but no "Golden Cloud".
I kept looking thinking, maybe, it had not been translated into English, yet.
If anyone has any information on this please let me know.
Thanks so much for your help in this matter.
