Re: three year retreat experiences?

From what I've been hearing, many people only made it halfway through. Both Kagyu and Nyingma retreats, and under many different teachers. For some, they realised that they weren't ready for this at all. Others have completely abandoned Buddhism and decided to be productive members of society instea...

This is what's refered to in the link above. However, there is also the Concise Daily Practice, which is a short guru yoga practice on Guru ...

Re: Leaving a teacher (ChNN)

Advice I got from a teacher when I was in a similar situation:

'You are not leaving your old teacher, you are expanding from your previous experience. Make sure you include everything with a pure view, and you're fine.'

Re: Ole Nydahl´s sectarian meltdown

Correct! Although Ole advices his students to stick to one lineage, he has indeed recieved transmissions from several lineages himself. Many positive and negative opinions are possible on that matter, but I feel no need to go into that right now. Here is what he said himself about the subject of pho...

Agreed! No matter your perspective, he deserves a lot of credit for his courage.
I'm actually surprised the Buddhist corner of the internet hasn't exploded yet with some of the statements made here.

As usual, I'm amazed at the clarity of his transmission. Beyond anything. He truly is my Guru in that sense. And yet, as usual, I'm unsure how to continue in the Dzogchen Community. I practice the Short Tun, have met the small local sangha, and I know the SMS program exists. But really, what is the ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Hello, I had some indications it might be a good idea to do vajrapani practice. Is it possible to do it the same way as it is done in thun with simhamukha and guru dragphur? Please pm me if this info is too sensitive. Yes. In the old short thun, Vajrapani was main male deity practice. Why the change?

Hey guys,

Does anyone know Chogyal Rinpoche (http://chogyalrinpoche.org/) ? And is, or isn't, he endorsed by other lamas and lineage holders in the Karma Kagyu lineage?
