Yes, that book really is awesome. I have read it about 3 times now in 3 weeks. You can finish it in one day. It is very short and can be bought as a pdf.

Anyone know if Rinpoche likes something in particular that may be a good gift? Or maybe where to get a traditional scarf?

Also if this is allowed on a public forum: when doing the experience of emptiness with 6 Ah's, is it eyes open or closed? If this question is inappropriate, please delete, it doesn't seem to specific to me, but I'd hate to break samaya. Thank you.


Rinpoché often offers to practice together with him ... this time too, the second session. So it's easy to see how he his practicing.

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

I think I read that he prefers people to look at him, as he is the source.

I am looking to download a copy of the Mandarava sadhana so i can participate in the upcoming collective practice for Rinpoche. I thought I read in this thread that it is available on the webcast site in restricted files. My membership is up to date but I cannot find it. Is it not there or am I looking in the wrong place?

Any or all help apprecaited.

Firstly, you must log in. Then go to the Files and click to the last link where it writes:
Restricted Texts of Retreats
click here to access (user must already be logged in)
.
Mandarave Practice is still there! :smile:

There is always webcast (open or closed). Apart from Yangti and Togal.
It will not be the first time that Rinpoche is transmitting Jnanadhakini through webcast.... :smile:

I have no idea about the rest of the questions. It is the job of Webcast Team, Mirror Team etc.

I doubt he says so ... when one practice, one does not really look at someone.

The quote was something about students (in SOV?) looking at the sky instead of looking at him.

It ends with: ''They don't understand that the teacher represents our real state, not the sky.''

Yes, that is right, when singing SOV it is better to gaze at the boss then over his head. I have heard him say this myself.

I'm utterly crap at remembering when and where I pick things up.

It may have been The Mirror on the SOV. I found a Google source but the material had been removed (possibly 'Teacher Taining') but it did end with the words:
' ''They don't understand that the teacher represents our real state, not the sky.''

Maybe it was a bit of a pun - doesn't his name include 'sky'?

Thanks, Dronma, I got it to work.

Next question: I received three separate emails concerning the date of this practice but the dates were conflicting. Sometimes it said the date of the collective practice was July 3rd and sometimes it said July 7th. In one email it said both. What's the date and time of the practice?

Thanks in advance.

Well Pero has said that there is also no webcast for the Longsal Root Empowerment, however I think that it was said a couple pages ago that the upcoming retreat is not the Longsal Root Empowerment.

So it looks like there will be a (closed?) webcast from July 4 - 10. :)
