The Crystal and the Way of Light - Blog Post by Namdrol

Postby Mr. G » Sun Jan 02, 2011 1:47 pm

For those that don't follow , he made a great post on Namkhai Norbu's book "The Crystal and the Way of Light":

If you are really intelligent, you will understand the meaning of this title automatically and need nothing further. When I first read this book, back in 1987, back in the days of the Harmonic Convergence and so on, I had no clue what it meant, I was suspicious that it might be some new age book. And when I first read about "self-liberation" I was confused since I thought this was a book about Tibetan Buddhism. Well, I have learned a lot since then.

Nah, I hear ya Chaz...different strokes for different folks. Personally I wish he would come back to posting in forums as I think he has a wealth of information. Too bad he doesn't post more in his Sakya blog.

Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

We must all make our decisions based on what we know.

In my case I always reserve the right to change my opinions. LOL :)

from the blog:

"If you are a Theravadin, Dzogchen seems similar to Vipassana, if you are a Vajrayanist, Dzogchen seems similar to Mahamudra. If you are Zen pracitioner, Dzogchen seems similar to Zen. If you are a Mahayanist, Dzogchen seems similar to Madhyamaka and so on."

Seems to me very good :smile:


Return to “Dzogchen”
