Re: Very sad news: Letter to Sogyal Rinpoche / Abuse allegations

:good: Sogyal is not a crazy wisdom yogi. Crazy wisdom yogis break social convention based on their insight and wisdom, not conform to it. What he did is nothing more than what a lot of what we see glorified in music, television and in movies. What he did was just fall prey to the maras that are run...

Re: Buddhahood in This Life

I'm thinking of attending a lung of the Tshig Don Mzod. I have "Buddhahood in this Life" trans. by Malcolm. And I understand that the lung for that text will be offered by webcast. Considering that Longchenpa's text is an expansion/revision of the former, is there any reason, related to practice, w...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

As a DC member and having received di from Norbu Rinpoche, can I order the restricted materials of Shitro and Phowa? How about Dorje Sempa Namkha Che? Thank you. You need to have received the specific transmission of all those three texts first. OK, thanks. If you have recieved DI you can order the...

Re: Retreat Spots

Great thread. I'm in Tenerife at Dzamling Gar presently and rooming with the kind folks who run http://tsegyalgarwest.org/ They shared with me pictures and information about the place and it seems to be a very good spot for personal solitary retreat. Lots of space. A perfect place for outer rushen,...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Has anybody used the aforementioned Facebook group with success before? I can afford the flight ticket just fine (Norway to Tenerife), and I was thinking of doing something like 26th Dec. to 9th Jan., but there's no way I can afford hotels from the looks of it, so I need to do something cheaper. Pe...

Re: ChNN vs Khenpo Sonam Rinpoche: How do they compare?

Khenpo Sonam Tobgyal Rinpoche is an amazing teacher. I've been his student since 1996. He is very realized in my ignorant opinion. He is the hidden type. Not a lot of advertising, no desire for fame. Thinley Norbu came to the temple on a few occasions totally under the radar. Thinley Norbu and Khenp...
