Re: Receiving pointing out without knowing

Greetings, maybe a silly question, but i'll ask anyway. As I was becoming interested in Dzogchen earlier last year, I went to an in person evening seminar by 7th Dzogchen Rinpoche Jikmé Losel Wangpo in Melbourne Australia titled ' why are you so busy'. I didn't really understand what pointing out i...

Re: Dzogchen without deity yoga/two stages?

these are 2 quotes by Malcolm Smith taken from 2 topics, both locked. ...It may be the case that in modern Tibetan Buddhism Dzogchen has become mixed with anuyoga teachings, especially at the level of empowerments. For example, the Longchen Nyinthig is mostly deity practices. The Dzogchen section o...

Dukkha/dukkha-nirodha. ime, that you should keep. one is like a vase, you pour liquid inside and keep it intact. if you mix with another you screw it both. I certainly value the presentation of Theravada that I've realised. Are you suggesting that exploring Dzogchen is a bad idea? What is important...

His/her/their Theravada lineage. He mentioned the late Wangdor Rinpoche. Wangdor was legit, the rest of these people, I never heard of them.

Re: Greetings and Request for Guidance

I always liked the analogy that it is like someone introducing you to another person. They say to you, "This is Bob." Now you know who Bob is. You may have passed by him a hundred times in the past but you could not recognise him because no one had pointed him out to you. There is of course more to...

Re: Greetings and Request for Guidance

Thank you. Regarding this point: 'no teacher, no introduction, no Dzogchen', I take it you are referring to the practice of Dzogchen, as opposed to saying, 'no teacher, no introduction, no primordial state'? Reading about, talking about or trying to practice Dzogchen without introduction and instru...

Re: Greetings and Request for Guidance

Because the meditation in dzogchen is to return the the view, and the view in dzogchen is not something conceptual, in order to have the view you need someone who can point that to you, and that someone has to have confidence in that view. Aaaaand you also need guidance in the rest if the path so y...

Re: Greetings and Request for Guidance

Since it's not clear from your post, do you have a qualified Dzogchen teacher, from whom you received Dzogchen? If not, there is no Dzogchen to speak of in any way, and anything you do will remain fruitless. Of course, if you do, then that's a completely different story. In general then I would rec...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Rinpoche literally pleaded with us constantly to treat each other well, to have pure vision and give the benefit of the doubt. I certainly don't see this when people are quick to indict Yeshi based on a few things they've heard second hand. This will have absolutely no effect on him or the situatio...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

ChNN's cancer was directly related to people creating peoblems. and afaik he had it a 2nd time in his last years, causing his death. or well, maybe is just my karmic vision, and he died due to natural causes... Did Rinpoche say that’s why he had cancer? If not, who did? Is this a commonly agreed up...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Authorization is relative. Not, I believe in this context. ChNN was clear who he authorised to teach what, and YN is also crystal clear. The father is dead so whose view do we honour here?: ''He believes that no one is authorized to give Direct Introduction in the Chögyal Namkhai Norbu lineage.'' I...
