HHDL likes Dzogchen--- doesn't his opinion count at least a little given his relationship with LTKR?

Through Dzogchen we can really understand what God is and we don’t have to worry if there is a God or not. God always exists as our real nature, the base, for everybody. - Chögyal Namkhai Norbu

At this point in time , considering we are in a degenerative age, we should not be aggressively trying so hard to damage various Mahayana teachings.
I think when one comes to terms with their practice and it actually generates realization you realize all the banter and counter banter are for people of no realization.
Be happy that everyone here spends part of their day practicing Mahayana practice for all sentient beings.

Enjoy each other's difference of opinion.
there are no bad teachings being bandied about here, why the big push to discredit each other.
look what happened a prime example of what i am talking about.

Each and every thread takes this turn . i think people are so insecure with their practice , or actually not practicing at all, that they spend time here trying to discredit one another.

give it a rest people and try to enjoy each other. Shouting you know something more than anyone else year in year out is obviously a tell that you are trying to come to terms with what you are so desperately trying to convince everyone of.
