Re: Merging With The True Self While Dying by Elio Guarisco: Why?

defend There is nothing here to defend, really. If there is, it means we are accusing not only Elio but also Garchen Rinpoche, at least two sons of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, James Low, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, Thrangu Rinpche, the notorious Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, e...

Re: Merging With The True Self While Dying by Elio Guarisco: Why?

Elio has said he would do it differently so probably no need to worry about him becoming an advaitin. Grigoris is right, this is better to take to the man himself. Trust me no one is worried about Elio becoming an Advaitin, certainly not I. He only reconsidered controversial epigraph after the Vajr...

While I think this is absolutely silly, i'll let the thread continue if it generates something productive, but IMO given the recent requests regarding behavior, it's pretty borderline.
The thread is absolutely silly, and the timing is very bad.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Shang Shung has two DVDs on Chod -"Teachings on Chod" and -"Practice of Chod" The former is a DVD and the latter is an MP4 DVD. Sometimes I've ordered books that have been different editions of the same product; does anyone know if these two DVDs contain the same information, or if they are compani...

You’re only posing a narrow opinion. Be open to others usages and don’t proselytize. I’m very tired of pushy opinions.

No point in talking like that. I'll pass this one.

Re: Crackdown on religion in China

You mean the Muslim world does not accept Uyghurs? There is no Muslim world, really, just lots of (partially) Muslim worlds. Listen to what a Pakistani tells you about Turks, or an Egyptian about Muslims in the post-Soviet bloc countries, etc. Uyghurs do not have any allies, Muslim or otherwise. To...

Re: Crackdown on religion in China

That is actually a good question. It is strange that a book, comics or a movie can raise hell, but genocide is apparently ... cool. One could say that historically they do not have much problem with China, but ... now they should have at least a bit of a problem with it. The thing is, there is no s...

Re: Crackdown on religion in China

However, I am still surprised that there does not seem to be some vocal response in the muslim world. Is it because the Uyghurs are so far away from what you called "middle ground"? Just to add, I am surprised there is NO vocal response anywhere. And am getting honestly pretty uncomfortable because...

Did Rinpoche teach and transmit all of his Longsal terma or was there still more? Have his senior students, like Adriano Clemente, received all of them?

Re: Realization of the Naga's practices

Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche was a great Master, but I think most people would agree that He was iconoclastic in some regards. He was one of my Teachers (though not one of my Root Gurus). So I'm not criticizing Him in my following response. If He is/was your Root Guru and your samaya with Him is ...
