Re: Zhi Tro Empowerment as a prerequisite?

There seems to be very solid scriptural evidence that the idea that through any HYT sadhana/mantra all deities are realised (and thus there is no need for any other sadhana/mantra practice) is to be read literally, in a way at least, i.e., if you realise a yidam, you realise all yidams: https://budd...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Ah yes, the one the SMS instructors use would be great! I know some of the Barcelona sangha, so I'll ask around there as well. Do you know what year the retreat was? aparently in October 12th-16th, 2012; and prior dates. http://static1.1.sqspcdn.com/static/f/870641/20388174/1348395780610/RetiroBarc...

Re: Short Daily Tsok Practice

I have been given tsok accumulations both in the Karma Kagyu and the Dudjom Tersar and the plan of action is identical: Put out the offerings once and accumulate the prayer. The only difference was that in the Dudjom Tersar the teacher said I didn't need to put out separate plates (for the daily ac...

Re: Short Daily Tsok Practice

What about the amount of food offerings during tsoks. Particulary if you are alone. For tsok accumulations? Yep The best possible answer to all such questions, including how much time you have to purify your samayas, is the one you get from your teacher. If that is impossible, one you get from his ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I'm not overly concerned about the cost of membership but I am a bit puzzled as to why, getting on for a year after ChNN rested his intent, it's still unclear what the plan for the sangha is going forward. Will there be arrangements for people to give lungs and explanations? Will other teachers be ...

If you understand how to practice ChNNR's Guru Yoga with a white Ah, then you understand the essence of kyerim and dzogrim. Of course there are endless details but that is the essence.

Re: Visualisations and Dzogchen

Sure you are absolutely right. One of those approaches would be that Tantra as forerunner is not per se needed for Dzogchen practise. Tantra is a nice way, as a preliminary for some. Not what HH Dudjom Rinpoche says. Its up to the individual here aboard to make a choice, Tantra or not as forerunner...
