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 ...

Re: Dzogchen Teachings of Longchen Rabjam Drime Özer (Zhi Lam Drä Bu)

In the end of the Munich retreat, a bequest by Garchen Rinpoche of how structures should be set and who should become responsible for which region has been communicated. This part is not on the youtube recording but should be made available online soon. I don't know when exactly that'll be fyi :sho...

Were you guys able to connect well to the 20:00 session today? It was in and out for me, and then just cut out altogether.
I gave up after 15 minutes of trying.

Re: Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Has Attained Parinirvana

In these specific circumstances it is better for us not to mix practices from different masters with those our own master has prescribed. There is a risk we may interfere or waste our energy, for example if another Lama answered a general question and advised Phowa. I think we should not make this ...

Garchen Rinpoche is truly a mahasidha just like ChNN.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I don't remember when, but it was probably in 2017, and Rinpoche said how many times he's given retreats on Dzogchen in total, and I think it was either well over 600 or close to 700. Quite amazing. :heart: Since I joined the DC in 2009 I attended or listened to some 70 (and I certainly did not tak...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

When was the last webcast with Rinpoche? I believe it was the Mandarava drubchen retreat early this year. He was unable to complete the whole retreat due to poor health. Exactly. The last retreat the Maestro completed was the December/January one, also in Tenerife. Before that there was something i...

Can one practice "Vajrasattva Meditation For Purifying Obstacles" with DI or does it require separate transmission? Thanks! :heart: Just DI is certainly enough, otherwise they would not have encouraged everyone to practice Vajrasattva. The same goes for the GY of the White A. And for ganapuja, I wo...
