Re: Thoughts on Dzogchen without buddhism?

I know this is only part of the way back to the original topic, but I wanted to share this: a bit of digging turns up strong evidence (I'd put it at 98% confidence) that "omega point" is a pen name for one Daniel Ingram. Make of it what you will. Could be, but this Omega Point character has always ...

Re: Thoughts on Dzogchen without buddhism?

What is unconvincing or does not make sense, for example? The whole preoccupation with painting the samsaric modes of becoming as a perpetual tragedy of endless suffering, thus stirring denigrating judgments and devaluations, cultivating aversions, cultivating volitions to cessate it all, escape it...

Re: Thoughts on Dzogchen without buddhism?

..but I'm afraid I find the buddhist underpinnings not very convincing at all. I have ordered and read some books about dzogchen, and while much of it makes very much sense, the parts occupying themselves with buddhist philosophy and assumptions do not. What is unconvincing or does not make sense, ...

Re: non-physical heat during dzogchen meditation

Thank you for the advice, I surely will return from time to time to read the news. Unlike taobums there are genuine and well-informed practitioners who post here, but you can’t come into this space convinced you already know, or know better than others. If you can even feign the attitude that other...

ZOOM,

If you don't have a qualified teacher of Dzogchen, there is no Dzogchen to be practiced.
This guy used to post on the taobums forums as well. Obsessed with men ngag practices and thinks teachers have no purpose.

Re: Shakyamuni stabilizing his wisdom?

To my knowledge, sutras do not generally present a system where you alternate between equipoise and post-equipoise, and where equipoise becomes more stable with some work to stabilize it, and where you accord with the unborn more fully and operate more freely the more you cultivate the expression o...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

What a shitshow. Anyways, I highly recommend that those of you who are conflating tirthika views with dzogchen to please read The Mind Beyond Papers by Elias Capriles as he succinctly and painstakingly details out the differences of views and results. Most gnostic and advaita vedanta "realizations"...

With all due respect, fella, I don't give a flying f*&k about what you think does or doesn't add up.

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

Does this then mean there are countless gods, as the individual natures of countless sentient being's minds, that do not actually create anything? That would be the consequence. Why call it a god at that point? I don't really know. I have my guesses but don't intend to pollute this forum with them....

Just doesn't add up fellas... especially when masters such as Norbu Rinpoche and Yongdzin Rinpoche say different. The latter states you break samaya holding this view. I don't know exactly how to reconcile it, but it doesn't bother me. The "all-creating king" is a literary device pointing at your o...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

To add, Malcolm pointed out to me the other weekend in Santa Fe, which was a wonderful event by the way, that the Rig pa rang shar also states that tirthika non-dual views are untenable in the context of Dzogchen. Not to mention the fact that the same text rejects 360 different views, the teachings ...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

Spelare: For what it's worth, my own guru (Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche) made it abundantly clear that the concept of God I learned from Vedanta is exactly the right way of looking at things (and the right direction in which to pray) -- as long as it's understood that this "God" is inside, not outside....

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

Disparaging refers to pointing out the faults of these religions to their followers, being contemptuous or offensive. It does not mean one should not see their errors. In this case even bringing up disparaging other religions is completely out of place as this is a Buddhist forum. Actually, what I ...
