Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

To the best of my knowledge the event is fully official now. Here goes the second e-mail which the Merigar gakyil has sent out: Cari tutti, vorremmo chiarire alcuni dettagli che riguardano i due giorni dedicati alla trasmissione con Yeshi Silvano Namkhai. La trasmissione è rivolta SOLAMENTE ALLE PER...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

i do, like many others, question the curious way this event came to be known and why is happening the way is happening. What does it mean, why is the event not publicly listed, why is it happening on the DC premises, why the unusual precautionary steps, why, why, why,.....? There will be an officia...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I second this guess. People around the world speculating and having expectations that Yeshi do things exactly like is father is not only disruptive, it's really unfair to Yeshi and his family. Rinpoche died. There could never be a replacement for him. He is irreplaceable. If Yeshi is going to help ...

Re: Dudjom Tröma Nagmo ngondro

DT Lama's who allow a student to practice the entire Throma Ngondro without a wang, or to begin the Throma Ngondro without a Wang? As I have been taught, One can practice the Throma ngondro without a Wang, as long as one has the permission / lung of a qualified master. However, that is only up to t...

thank you Trime Pema). i guess your answer is generally about Dudjom Tersar ngöndro though, while i am asking about Thröma Nakmo ngöndro specifically.

Re: There is no Vajrayana without renuciation

One topic for the relevant forum - There is no Dzogchen with renunciation. It is weird that you all keep believing this because it just isn't true. I already mentioned Khandro Nyingtik, Vima Nyingtik but it doesn't stop there training the mind (lodjong) exist in virtually all Dzogchen cycles (at le...

So if I come to tsog with the specific intention of repairing my samaya breakage, there ought to be no issue of being excluded?
Talk to your teacher, if that is impossible, to her or his senior practitioners. Otherwise the only thing you can get is fear, confusion and frustration.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Do you guys think that there has to be one guy in charge like with rimpoche? Or is it viable to work in a more community way? I think the biggest challenge facing the DC will be to become something that serves the needs of members now that Rinpoche is not at the center of things. Operating with the...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

in the context of IDC I would be especially careful as it would be a shame if one such claim destroyed and ripped apart the community. Absolutely. We are not in Tibet, nor in India. And we are not talking about a hypothetical traditional society. The DC was centred unquestionably and absolutely on ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I kinda believe that in this situation it is best to paraphrase what Garchen Rinpoche said few months back: leave debates and worrying about the future and "purity" of the lineage to the lineage holders and just practice to the best of your ability. It solves part of the problem for me : I can to s...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

It's a basic human trait that we tend to ignore the reality of impermanence. However, I have the feeling that this degenerate age is fast winding down. Maybe the reason the Maestro did not (at least seemingly so far) leave a game-plan for the continuation of the DC is that He foresaw the immanent e...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

But the critical issue here is who holds those complete transmissions and empowerments of the Longsal terma and the other termas that ChNNr held - he held various ones from people like Changchub Dorje, Ayu Khandro etc. Only people who have received all the reading transmissions can actually pass on...

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...

A person i met recently, who had some first hand information, mentioned that he heard Rinpoche’s daughter saying that she will be happy to give transmission in the future but only after she has taken care of her children’s education and their upbringing. Good news, if true. But -- why those running...

none of them wants to teach... Officially we do not know it at all. Officially we dont know, but unofficially we know, that Yeshi "dont want to have anything to do with this tibetan folklore".

Actually, if they have been authorised, then there is every reason to expect them to take up the helm right now. The hour of need is now.
