Re: Completion of the path of Tögal

On second thought maybe they did had some experience of Thogyal but would a qualified master say they had realized (i.e. stabilized and made irreversible) Thogyal, big doubt.

Re: Completion of the path of Tögal

In my "book" anyone who doesn't clearly identify and acknowledge their Lineage Teachers is suspicious. The great Teachers consistently identify they got such and such a Transmission from such and such a Lineage Holder so i don't see why these guys wouldn't. No doubt they experienced something . Woul...

Re: Need help with my 3 year Nyingma/Dzogchen retreat.

I certainly intend to see with some lawyers if the R1 can be "stretched out" to include long retreats it's just a drag to have to deal with this nonsense when i just want to get on with things...but anyway it's all good...i.e. it's all part of Buddhist Practise. In regard to your comment re:POL...it...

Re: Need help with my 3 year Nyingma/Dzogchen retreat.

Thanks Adamantine. I guess i was not clear... the R1 Visa is a "religious worker" visa . The individual is coming to the US to carry out some kind of function (usually remunerated) eg. minister etc..which will not be my case. The fact that i will be working spiritually, is, it seems, of no importanc...

Re: Need help with my 3 year Nyingma/Dzogchen retreat.

Thanks for all your comments. Just a few points of clarification. You can ignore the word Dzogchen in the title. I put it in there because this is the Dzogchen column and my Teacher, Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, is a Dzogchen Master so i guess we will probably touch upon the subject a little bit. And no,...

Need help with my 3 year Nyingma/Dzogchen retreat.

I'm a Canadian living on the East Coast who'll be beginning 3-year retreat next year in California. The problem is i am having a major problem getting a visa as none of them seem to apply to me. For example, R1 religious visa is no good as i won't be fulfilling a remunerated religious function i.e. ...
