Re: Question about offerings for the Guardians

Rinpoche would mention this (often in open webcasts, so I don't think it is a restricted teaching) "Open webcasts" merely meant that people didn't need to be a registered member of the Dzogchen Community to access them, unlike the closed webcasts. That doesn't mean the contents of those webcasts an...

Re: Anyone know this “rinpoche”

For example, I don't think I've ever seen someone use "Ajahn" in a Tibetan Buddhist context before. Sure you have, even our friend Malcolm uses it. No he does not. He uses "Acharya", which is Sanskrit. Or the Tibetan, "Loppon". Both are very commonly used in a Tibetan Buddhist context. "Ajahn" is n...

Re: sang without transmission

When Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche said that he is not a Bönpo Then you should actually listen to him, and try to understand why he said that, and what it means, instead of speculating and creating theories to satisfy your intellect. reading between the lines Is a really bad thing to do in this ca...

Re: sang without transmission

Sang offering is an aborigen thing, a tibetan practice, and afaik it doesn't have roots in buddhadharma. Maybe you can just make aromatic smoke and offer it. Well i guess that depends of you consider the roots of sang making smoke or if you consider them to be boddhicitta, offering to the four gues...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

In case it's not clear for some, this decision was Rinpoche's own decision, not the SSI. He decided it should be like this several years ago.

Re: Text/prayer table

You could also likely contact a local woodworker, give him or her a drawing of the kind of table you want, and ask what it would cost (shouldn't be much). That way you could get something super sturdy and you'd support local business too. And if you're adventurous you could make one yourself. It's n...
