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 lot...

If you do not know the melody but feel you need to do the practice, recite it.

Re: Preparing for death

How can one prepare for death and bardo experience so one can either attain liberation in the bardo or at least not fall into unfavourable rebirth? Does practicing zhitro help one to prepare for bardo or is it mostly for helping others? What about Amitabha? Is reciting prayer to be reborn in Dewach...

It feels utterly unreal to receive that email, it is so untimely somehow for all of us.

That is so absolutely my experience as well :-(

In Dzamlinggar they have switched over to puja.

For those of us who don't know how to do Shitro, is Guru Yoga the best we can do?

Sure.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Any idea which formal practice we ought to be doing right now?

Edit:

They are doing Shitro in Dzamlinggar right now.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

There is? A new one?

There was one, to be sure, more than a month ago.
Then there has been a series of reports suggesting that Rinpoche's health is steadily improving.

Have I missed something?

Re: Dungse Rigzin Dorje Rinpoche

Unfortunately he is currently forbidden from teaching in the United States (and has been for years) because of issues that DHS has with classifying people who live in Assam. Hopefully he has been able to teach elsewhere in the past few years. That is both very sad and quite surprising. In what way ...

Re: Dalai Lama says 'Europe belongs to Europeans'

AFAIK, the issues we see around migration have a lot of complexity, but a significant aspect is a really primal level reaction about how one feels attachment to their home. Its never been easy for people to move into another's space. It never will be easy. That's just something about how we're wire...

Re: Dalai Lama says 'Europe belongs to Europeans'

What shocks me here most is that some fifteen years ago saying words such as "England belongs to the English," or "Poland for Poles," let alone "Germany belongs to Germans" would be seen as an instance of absolute, hair-raising xenophobia and at the same time something so puerile that it could not r...

HHDL himself is a refugee and would like nothing mroe than to go back to Tibet, which is being flooded with Chinese. That's where he is coming from. Putting aside the issue of PRC occupation of Tibet and speaking purely of Han migration, do you agree that Tibet does not belong to the Tibetans and i...

And, in closing, let us not forget the wonderfully civilising influence of European post-Renaissance culture in the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, the African continent, Asia, etc...

Re: Dalai Lama says 'Europe belongs to Europeans'

The obvious context is: please give us back our Tibet. We cannot go on like this, strangers in strange lands. We badly need to go home.

Re: Dalai Lama says 'Europe belongs to Europeans'

I think what HH the Dalai Lama is saying is not quite realistic. When is this 'ultimately' he refers to? When their children are born in Europe, go to European schools, speak the local language better than the language of their parents, when the war in their country of origin is over, their should ...
