There is an active complex mental life happening in all humans that most people are largely unaware of Nope. Most of our deep-seated neuroses are rooted in childhood events, Nope. But it is nice to blame our parents. Talking therapy is a viable method for unlocking and working with these neuroses b...

Re: Egg-shaped vase-like thing next to Garab Dorje in images

lol ok, but what's the significance of depicting it in a lineage master's thangka? And seemingly only in those of master of Dzogchen, and always on the left, and so ornate for a mere storage bin? I've heard (by Malcolm?) that the "stuff" inside the egg shaped basket is all the tantric stuff. Bell a...

Re: Egg-shaped vase-like thing next to Garab Dorje in images

Does it symbolize holding the whole Dzogchen teachings, ie "Dzogchen pitaka"? If not, what does it symbolize? I only remember seeing it next to Dzogchen masters.

Re: Taking Empowerment as a Blessing

I didn't ask for this karma to ripen, just riding it out. Really puts it in perspective concerning what's important. If I'm going to be wrong, may everyone else be right... and may they save me from my stupidity. Just keep practicing. You'll be fine. First good advice all day! :bow: :cheers:

Totally my choice. I was an intellectual, & found peace elsewhere. Much like my stepmother stressed manners on the off-chance that the Queen would visit, I want to be ready for Vajrayogini in whatever form she takes.

Re: Dudjom Yangsi Dorje Drollö empowerment Toronto

Could you relay what you learn from Khenpo Sonam Rinpoche? I was also at this empowerment and I would love to put this into practice. I talked to Rinpoche yesterday and he himself wasn't exactly sure. So I think at this point if we really want to find out we have two options; 1: see if we can conta...

Re: Dudjom Yangsi Dorje Drollö empowerment Toronto

Interesting. I'll try to find out later today from Sonam Rinpoche who requested the empowerment. On a side note, but somewhat related; what would the Dorje Drollö we received from Kunzang Dechen Lingpa be regarded as? Inner or outer? Could you relay what you learn from Khenpo Sonam Rinpoche?

On a side note, but somewhat related; what would the Dorje Drollö we received from Kunzang Dechen Lingpa be regarded as? Inner or outer? Inner. It and the Pema Sogthig are basically the same, however, Pema Sogthig is a bit more elaborate. Mantras are different. Also, there is no separate empowermen...

Re: Dudjom Yangsi Dorje Drollö empowerment Toronto

Probably not Pema Sogthig. Probably the outer Drollo sadhana, both are mind treasures. Hmmmm... i wonder. He mentioned it was Dudjom Rinpoche's heart practice as well as his own. Are the root mantras the same? That would be one way to determine. Identical. I have received them both. Pema Sogthig is...

What is the Saraswati Terma? A terma revealed in Amdo region of Tibet by the 11th-13th century terton, Chokyi Gocha as Flaws said. However, I have no clue who on earth Chokyi Gocha is with the only google results being about the Tai Situpa :shrug: Do you know if it's included in the Rinchen Terdzo?
