Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I am personally sure it is an authentic endorsement from ChNN, having been a student of both for 20 years. If you are not sure then why not ask the International Gakyil or SSI to clarify. Many students of Bruce Frantzis were also students of ChNN and asked ChNN questions about how to integrate the ...

Re: Are Zen teachers awakened?

I agree. The extent to which they truly embody it in a variety of situations is another matter though. Are you including Jundo and Brad Warner here, Dan? I am not in the position to judge really. Generally speaking, my understanding is that everyone who deserved the name 'Zen teacher' must have had...

I thought I had asked this a long time ago, but I searched and am thinking that I mis-remembered. Does anyone know if there was any relationship and/or interaction between ChNN and Taoist martial arts teacher Bruce Kumar Frantzis? On the back of two Frantzis’ books there is an endorsement by ChNN. ...

If one is doing Ngondro in one tradition, is it still a good idea to make use of an opportunity for direct introduction with a teacher from another lineage?
Nature of mind doesnt have a "school", so yes.

i would like to sugest you find a teacher that is a monastic, that way is less probable you get behavioural concerns. lay teachers are more likely to cause them.

This is not true at all. Spending some time in buddhist countries will knock that idea out in very little time.

Re: Practicing without possibility of physical contact with teacher

I checked the teachers mentioned by you (their websites). I don't know about James Low and Lama Lena, but Alan Wallace and Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche are charging for their online streams (which is, of course ok, for anyone who can send money outside his country, but not me). Especially Ngondro teachi...
