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

You are telling us a Bon story here, which is fine and dandy -- it is certainly a valid story. I think you may find that it is a kalden yundrung story...

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...

Re: Diana Mukpo’s potent letter re: Shambhala

It is not about culture, this is the Vajrayana path, if you do not like it practice the Mahayana, I'm not sure why people endlessly go on about it. It was the same in India, it was the same when it went to Tibet, it is the same in Sikkim, in bhutan, in ladakh, and now, America, Europe and the whole...

Re: Diana Mukpo’s potent letter re: Shambhala

In a hedonistic societies like ours, an ethical ascetic is the one displaying "crazy wisdom". :good: Cannot be stressed enough.

Re: three year retreat experiences?

I’m going to speak Kagyu heresy and float the idea that maybe Kongtrul’s 3 year retreat formula isn’t the best vehicle for transmitting Dharma to the West. Maybe people should learn fewer practices and learn to actually master them. Perhaps something like Ngondro, Shamans & Chenrezig. As it is now ...

Re: DKR - How Will You See the Guru?

i'm afraid you are applying a Mahayana criteria to a Vajrayana way. But Vajrayana is a subspecies of Mahayana. I'm sorry, my Guru told me that in the nature of mind there is no limits, and that limitations are cause of suffering and not cause of realization. And i'm talking of skillful means, not o...
