Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Playing off that last sentiment, I just want to express appreciation for all the vajra siblings on this thread. Rinpoche changed my life, and despite living near Seattle there’s no Ling remotely near me, so it feels good to be in touch in some way with other practitioners for help and support. Often...

Re: Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Has Attained Parinirvana

:heart:

Where the administration site refers to him as having been “the foremost living Dzogchen,” I assume what’s being translated is “Dzogchen teacher”?

Re: Kunjed Gyalpo:The Supreme Source

In ChNNR’s rendering of the Kunjed Gyalpo, in Chapter 30 where it says “The universal path in harmony with that [nature] manifests as the moon and its support,” what is the symbol / image being described? What is ‘the moon and its support’? Is this like the moon over a lotus or something? Just curi...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Strange experience 2 days ago. I was watching the webcast in my living-room. The kids were playing Playmobil. The live-video was loading and I left the room for 5 minutes. When I came back, the video was playing (Guru Yoga with Andriano Clemente). Unusually, the room was quiet. The kids had left th...

Another teacher supporting us right now is Lama Denys, of the Shangpa Kagyu Rime sangha: "En l’esprit du Maitre Namkaï Norbu Rinpoche, nous pratiquons l’Ati Guru Yoga nous joignant à nos frères et sœurs de la communauté Dzogchen.

FWIW, the Guruyoga book pages 44 and 45 have been helpful in thinking about this as well.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Just wanted to say that we are receiving steady, unconditional support from Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, his students in general and some of his local sanghas in particular. It is both much needed and deeply moving, to say the least. I honestly cannot imagine a better response. We have also received lo...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I was just at Dzamling gar. For any one who doesnt know already, Rinpoche got out of hospital a few days ago. I saw him when he returned, he looked weak. He is resting at home. I read that to improve Rinpoches health he has requested for his students do guru yoga, remain present and work with circu...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Good to get the email from Dzamling Gar saying that his health is slowly getting better. On another subject - in Practice in Daily Life, Rinpoche suggests doing a very scaled back ganapuja, different from the normal rites, in situations where you’re eating but it would be inappropriate to draw atten...

I was really just wondering what GY is like for others.
It is possible that most people do not want to discuss it publicly.

Please do not write to Rinpoche right now. Wait till we know he is as fit as a fiddle again.
You can write to senior students such as Jim Valby. For many things they are as able as Rinpoche to provide great advice.
I did this a couple months ago, got a good response within the week.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Sorry, I feel indirectly responsible for raising this issue of emailing ChNN. When he wrote that complaint about people sending him massive emails, this was already back in 2001. I’m sure the email traffic is even worse these days, so let’s bear that in mind. I was really just wondering what GY is l...
