However, in Dzogchen there are methods for people who are blind and/or deaf.
So Creation and Completion Stage are not needed for Ngondro and Guru Yoga?

I got wicked deja vu reading this... did we have this discussion before (perhaps with some of the same participants)?

Why not acquaint yourself with the responsibilities you would take on in order to take Refuge with a teacher, which would widen your practice choices?
Well to be honest, I hoped to be able to augment my chances to meet an authentic teacher thanks to that mantra.

You can receive the empowerments, but since your body mandala is incomplete, one cannot practice creation and completion.
Would such a person with an Empowerment be liberated in 16 lives?

[Tibetan Buddhism] Practices not requiring Empowerments

Hi, I've read that the Guru Rinpoche Mantra can be used without Empowerment with the effect of guiding you to a qualified teacher, is that true? Is the mantra in that context supposed to be simply chanted without visualisation? Are Chenrezig, Green Tara and White Tara exceptions too even for solitar...

Re: Vajrayāna and the need to have complete Sense-Organs intact.

If you are born lacking limbs, sight, etc., this is what is meant. So even something as minor as being born without the sense of smell and taste? Again thanks for these informative answers because it's very hard to find anywhere about that on the web, I've read a lot of your posts in the past and y...

Re: Vajrayāna and the need to have complete Sense-Organs intact.

You can receive the empowerments, but since your body mandala is incomplete, one cannot practice creation and completion. So only being blind or deaf is important or that's also the case for partial blindness or deafness, lacking more "minor" senses like taste and smell and mutilations not involvin...

Vajrayāna and the need to have complete Sense-Organs intact.

With respect to having complete sense organs intact, if one does not, for example, it makes one unsuitable to be a Vajrayāna practitioner. What does having complete sense organs intact means in that context? Are you unable to become a Vajrayāna practitionner if you are blind or deaf? Are you unable...
