Re: Doubts about Alan Wallace restricted dzogchen courses

Which warnings about previous requirements would you have required? We all are on some path whatsoever. Advice from my side: as Long as you follow recordings or books on dzogchen, do so open-heartedly and cautiously. When sou see resonance, it's good to at least form the Aspiration to meet that teac...

Re: Tonglen

Not just the one neither the other. Giving and taking. If you are in a suffering state maybe a bit of the latter, if you are in good shape the former. All depends on your present feeling tone. This recording from a Pema Chodron teaching includes a guided meditation and I found it very useful https:/...

Re: termas found outside of asia?

Someone can help me out - isn't there something like a central register of the termas to come. So if someone comes up "I have a new terma" then others can confirm that is has been foreseen? Rationally speaking it would be useful if this register contains the location and the nature of source too... ...

Thank you for some positivity and measured perspective, this thread needs some right now. I think it also needs realism.

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: Merits from listening recorded chanting

I think activation of the own speech chakra is better
- and if this is humming or murmuring only

(not sure about the sense order when coming to existence)
