Re: Guru Rinpoche empowerment from H.E. Garchen Rinpoche - March 13 2020

Participated in the empowerment online. Does anyone know if this is from the Peling Lama Norbu cycle? I didn't participate in this particular empowerment, but in general, the Guru Rinpoche practice most commonly used in Drikung (and included in the collection of 50 empowerments) is from Pema Lingpa...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

It is totally fine. Thanks. Does Khenpo Namdrol have a website or teaching schedule around somewhere? He does have a website for his center in Asia, but it is old and seems like it hasn’t been touched in years. He does come to the West occasionally. First you would want to get on Lerab Ling’s email...

Re: Sogyal, etc. split from THE SELF-ARISEN VIDYA TANTRA thread

Its not a seed, it is a real thing. The fault lies in the fact that some people want to enter into vratacārya before they have adequately mastered the creation and completion stages, and are nowhere near heat on the secret mantra path of application. Such people were sarcastically referred to as "g...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

Speaking of Norbu Rinpoche, Malcolm, would you think if and when his successor starts giving transmission again, that would be a valid route to access his teachings? Or do you hold the view that it's only appropriate if received direct from Norbu Rinpoche himself? Asking just in case the IDC resume...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

The four snying thig empowerments are subdivisions of the fourth empowerment, actually. Basically, if you are interested in Dzogchen, you need to find someone you believe is a real Dzogchen practitioner to receive teachings from. Right now, I think Khenpo Namdrol is the best teacher available to we...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

No. It is not implying that at all. The chapter on empowerments is strictly referring the four empowerments common to Dzogchen snying thig: elaborate, unelaborate, and so on. So the empowerment of colored powders would be the elaborate one? Where would a word empowerment done by the lama giving a t...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

Does the chapter on empowerments imply that Vajrayana deity empowerments given by a Dzogchen master count as Dzogchen transmission even if there is no Dzogchen style direct introduction per se? No. It is not implying that at all. The chapter on empowerments is strictly referring the four empowermen...

Re: Living Longde Teacher

I think Rinpoche still regularly comes to the West, at least Europe. His lineage of Longdé is that of the Kama, his main master was Dudjom Rinpoche. He is also a lineage holder of all cycles of the Rinchen Terdzö and is quite experienced in Black Yangti. Do you know if Togdan Rinpoche's Pema Gyalpo...
