Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Hello. There's something I'm uncertain about on authenticating namkhas/lungtas. In the Teachings on Thun and Ganapuja book on page 255 it mentions an appointed person sprinkling water, and using incense to purify them. I don't have the Sang or Lungta book for reference. You can just sprinkle water,...

Re: Dream Yoga

How do you guys actually do the dream journaling? I have done this on and off, recollection certainly got better during those times, but the problem is that in the morning I don't have much time and sometimes it took me half an hour to write it all down. Aw. I still to work on my dream muscles. Hav...

Same here. I know someone who overcame this by fashioning a pair of dream glasses! But I have not been able to do that.
Dream glasses? Thanks for the idea. I haven't thought of that. I might give that one a try sometime. :twothumbsup: Or maybe a special dream monocle eyepiece. Hahaha.

Re: Dream Yoga

Oh yes, keeping a dream journal close by when one wakes up to write down whatever is remembered, and constant dream checks will really help. Like pinching your nose, and trying to breathe through your nose at the same time. If one can notice the weirdness of breathing through this, it will help one ...

Okay. I finally got how to do the harmonizing thread. I had to redo the rhombi so it won't look as weird or wonky with the harmonizing thread in place. :lol: Do you use round wooden dowel rods?

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Hello. In the Vajra Armor booklet, once one has completed the retreat, one can make the mantra to be worn. It says it has to be placed in a silver or gold gau. Does the gau need to be something like sterling silver, or can alloy electroplated silver/gold be used? I wanted to make a few for my famil...

I never thought something like that could occur. I'm glad you got better, DzogchenCentral. Thank you for sharing your story. I've only knew of Dorje Yudronma first through ChNN's divination dice book.

Re: Jigten Sumgon Chod

Would it be possible to ask for a copy of the sadhana when one has joined in yesterday's empowerment webcast? I didn't think I was able to make it, but I'm glad I was able to listen to it along with today's earlier teachings.

Re: Question on using multiple mantras

Does anyone here have familiarity with the Cundi dharani? There is of course this short sutra . Not all dharanis/mantras are the same in how they're used or said to work. I first read about it from here , and from this old defunct site which can be accessed thanks to the waybackmachine. It was also...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Not sure of any audio existing for Orgyen Menla. Try writing to shangshung store and asking them. Also, it's helpful to know the melody for the Namkha, but remember ChNN constantly said " do your best and work with circumstances ", so please don't let not having the ritual melody for the Namkha emp...

Re: The Transmission of Horoscopic Astrology to China & Japan

Awesome. Thanks for sharing this. I only know a bit about Western Renaissance astrology, while my knowledge of Eastern astrology's been limited to films, fictional novels, and a few non-fiction books. I can't wait to go through Dr. Jeffrey Kotyk's other academic papers.
