Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Thank you for some positivity and measured perspective, this thread needs some right now. I think it also needs realism. Simply saying things will take care of themselves is a bit of a deflective answer, it’s getting exasperating hearing it. These are valid concerns being brought up. with the humbl...

meet the old masters now, before they're gone

- yeah sure, they aren't really gone and yet they aren't there any more in their physical form. I repeatedly heard the recommendation now from my teacher to meet these old masters who have the capacity and wisdom to embrace dharma in the serenity and expressional aesthetics of art and dance. Some ma...

Re: Personal retreat suggestions - focus on semde

sharing dharmafootstep's notions on "not mixing" and "staying long time on one practice to go deep" I can tell you how I do it: I have the bunch of material I am inclined to do with me. Then I settle down, listen to my intuition in that particular moment of having arrived at my retreat spot and that...

Re: Merits from listening recorded chanting

I think activation of the own speech chakra is better
- and if this is humming or murmuring only
(rather than listening)

helpful for beings in the bardo states though
since the listening capacity is the last sense to fade
(not sure about the sense order when coming to existence)

Re: What Does Dzogchen Say About It’s Origins?

My impression is - correct me if I'm wrong - that the Dzogchen tries to work with a view that has no boss. There is Emptiness and there is plentitude and the mediation between these to, the aids to make us intertwined / unionized are the buddhas. Each has a function, each has another facet and each ...

I am not very learned, hence pls apologize my maybe stupid question: When Nagarjuna brought several Prajnaparamita texts from the nagas: - which texts were these? - was this (is this) Nagaland (East India)? - was it this journey though which he obtained his name? - I usually thought that the source ...

Maybe to round it up with quotes from "Being Guru Rinpoche" by James Low: (…) That's one of the reasons why I myself don't like to do these tantric rituals with anyone else, because I like to do them in a way that makes sense for me. This means, if I do part of the practise and I don't like how I've...
