Hi everyone !
I am Stanislav from Slovakia. My bodhisattva vow name is Lodro Nyima. Though a westerner I have very deep feeling for all tibetan, I believe that I lived in Tibet, also have confirmation from some lamas that it was so.
I have transmission of dzogchen from Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, but also other initiations from other lamas, mainly in Kagyu tradition. Though I make dzogchen I was believed to be a Gelugpa in previous lifes. But I don't see any obstacle there, dzogchen is very essential teaching how the mind is working, and I make it fully. It is truth, that I have no contacts to Gelugpa monasteries in Europe, I make my self-way, even I would very much like to be a monk again. But in dzogchen You may do anything You want, there are no obstacles to do that or that.
Even I live as a solitaire dzogchenpa, I need a sangha, and in previous lives I had great number of friends in sangha. It is told that I am an emanation of one high lama, and I can confirm, that I have heard his voice as child and even today, when he is in next reincarnation.
This connection is for me crucial and I am trying to live here in the west with the knowledge, that one day I will be after death united with my lama's source mind, and we will be one again. Or I will go to the Pure Land and live life there for a while. However I have very great feeling that I have to help other beings, and if I woun't be united with the mind of my lama and rest in this state, than I will be sure be incarnating for wellbeing of all the beings. Some things I don't know.
If it would be possible I would raise all beings to the Buddhahood state, but that isn't possible from my site. I am trying to help those I encounter, but here in the west it is hard. People usually don't want to change their habits, so I just listen and with pain I am seeing that I cannot help them more.
I live with my mother. I make dzogchen and tantra but I am waiting when my lama will flee from the China, where he is imprisoned. We have great samaya with other mainly Gelugpa lamas, and H.H. the Dalai Lama.
I would do almost everything that my lama will flee from China, and we are once more together.
I live in a Capital City of Slovakia, though I am making retreats in the Mountains of Middle Slovakia. I like it there a lot, but also a normal life in the Capital City is peacefull so I make continously a big retreat.
Well that's all about me
All the best !!!
Stanislav / Lodro Nyima from Slovakia
