Ngakpa Karma Lhundup

Hi All

I have the opportunity to attend an empowerment by Ngakpa Karma Lhundup.

Has anyone heard of / met him who may want to speak to his authenticity?

Cheers

Re: ChNNR Transmission

A small correction: The Kalachakra retreat is scheduled as closed webcast, as per information received from Dzamling Gar.
Oh really? I was going off what was printed in the Mirror (ed 123). Apologies if I misled anyone :twothumbsup:

Re: ChNNR Transmission

Bummer guys! But as has been mentioned above - just tune in to the next retreat and Rinpoche will give direct transmission. There is a Mandarava Chudlen retreat coming up from Dec 5th - 9th. RInpoche is also giving an extremely rare teaching on Kalachakra which was a terms of his Root Guru from Dece...

Re: when to start studying and practicing Dzogchen

KonchokZoepa - It's not such a good idea to discuss specific practices. There is a book called "Teachings on Lojongs, Rushens and Semdzins" which you might find a good start. You will be able to purchase either through Merigar or Shang Shung Italy (I think - I'm Australian so I may be completely wro...

Re: when to start studying and practicing Dzogchen

KhonchokZoepa - Registration is only required for the closed webcasts. As Malcolm has pointed out, most of Rinpoche's retreats are open which means you just need to go to the website at the time of the webcast and the stream will start automatically. If you want direct introduction you can receive i...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Hi Snowid

If you contact your nearest Gar or Ling and ask someone to run you through the practice that would probably be for the best.
When you're new it can seem complex but if you can talk to someone then it becomes a bit easier!

Good luck!

Re: Only way to realise Lhundrub is longde or thogal?

I get a bit confused. I have heard ChNN at some times say that Longde can be a vehicle to realise the rainbow body. But at other times (more recently) he has said that Longde is used to resolve doubt (i.e. GD's second statement) and then it can be let go. These aren't necessarily mutually exclusive ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Tregchog, Togal and Yangti are the three main practice of the Dzogchen Upadesha.
They are nothing more or less than practices of Guru Yoga in the same way that the Four Yogas of the Semde
and the Four Das of the Longde are practices of Guru Yoga.

Dzogchen Community - Amitayus Practice

Hello I have the text and CD recording of the Cedrub Gondus of Nyala Pema Dundul (aka Long life Practice of Guru Amitayus). The practice only includes Rinpoche singing the last of the three invocations. Has anyone had any experience with practice? At least enough to tell me whether the tunes for the...

On a completely unrelated matter, has anyone read the diagnostic criteria for narcissistic personality disorder?

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

This is what Rinpoche is saying in "The Practice in Daily Life": "Guruyoga means being in the state of instant presence introduced to you by your teacher, that maybe you were able to discover. Guru yoga is being in that state again; if you are not able to be in that state then you try to do many di...

Lama Dawa

I read in a post (that I can't find now!) that Lama Dawa was unwell. I also notice that his schedule hasn't been updated in quite a while. I was wondering if someone could give an update on his health?

Totally thought I was going to get through it! Alas - it cut out for about a minute from halfway throughout the speech empowerment to halfway through the mind empowerment. Balls.

ChNNR - Transmission on the Internet

I don't understand why they don't just use Ustream. Kids have broadcast concerts from their iPhone to tens of thousands of people at a time using Ustream. I must have clicked the refresh button 100 times already in the first hour today. How can we be sure we're receiving transmission if there is a ...

Re: Is receiving transmission via webcast a farce?

Sorry for being critical, Greg. You should make your decisions based on your own observations of your condition. I'm sure seeing Rinpoche in Greece will be mind blowing! The last thing I'll say, though, is that just because it didn't "spin your dials" doesn't mean you didn't receive transmission. Pe...

Re: Is receiving transmission via webcast a farce?

Quite simply? Well, just coz I respect somebody does not mean that I have to agree with everything they say.
Of course, Greg. But are you really so mistrustful that you're not even willing to follow his advice and jump in and try? You won't regret it, I promise :thumbsup:
