Anyone know if the first 3 days are still up on Facebook as videos? That's what i get for not checking DW for a few days. Just saw this now...
I can access them, so certainly available to those who have registered.

Re: german prosecution office investigates Ole Nydahl for incitement to hatred

Tibetan Muslims lived in relative harmony in Tibet as a minority culture. And let's just disabuse you of the notion that "all Muslims are bad people" right now. Would you appreciate it if anyone made a sweeping generalization about everyone who was your ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religi...

OK, now it is there. But it started some 15 minutes ago, right?
So what are the hours?

Confusing. What are the hours? Was there a second session on Saturday? On the website there are two Saturday videos, and I could swear there was no mention of the second session...

Re: Strategies for Keeping Practice in the West

Perhaps everyone should become one once they become old and retired. How do you know you will reach old age and retirement? You don't. Death can come at any moment and your opportunity to reach enlightenment will disappear. So better to do what you can now since you don't know if you will have an o...

Talk to the teacher.
Anyone else's opinion is useless at best, catastrophic at worst.

Re: Relationship between Dzogchen tantras and Nyingthiks

The Lung for the 17 tantras (as well as the Vima and Khandro Nyinthigs) still exists and is still transmitted. The 17 tantras themselves and related material are also termas, though considered part of kama, revealed during the two decades prior to Atisha's death, somewhere in the early 1040's. If I...

Re: Relationship between Dzogchen tantras and Nyingthiks

The Khandro Nyinthig is considered part of Terma, revealed in the early 14th century, and is a commentary and practice cycle upon a tantra called the Longsal Barma Nyima Gyud, which organizes the material in the 17 tantras into a progressive path, which includes general preliminaries such as Vajras...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Truly sorry if the cognitive dissonance between the Bodhisattva Imperative and the hierarchical access to the Teachings is uncomfortable. This is how the Community is hard-wired. Maybe the Community can change. Everything is up to Rinpoche. ob Not only does Rinpoche give Dzogchen teachings for free...
