Re: Semde teachers & teachings

I thought it might be useful for some people here if I share the material connected with Semde I came across so far (also included is some material on the A-Khrid tradition, as it shares many similarities with the Semde tradition): Works by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu: An Introduction to the Practice of C...

Semde teachers & teachings

Almost all I know about the Semde teachings is from the work of ChNN. AFAIK, Tulku Urgyen and Khenchen Palden Sherab also taught some Semde, but are there any living teachers (beside ChNN) that teach Semde these days? And does anybody have some reading suggestions on Semde in english, german or span...

Re: “The Secret Lamp of Wisdom”

Which ironically is one of the root tantras of "klong sde". yes, I was wondering about that too... the footnote in "The Supreme Source" tries to convey that the 4 yogas of Semde are older than the yogas of Mahamudra, and as evidence for this it cites a Longde text... I can’t read tibetan, so I’m de...

“The Secret Lamp of Wisdom”

In the “Supreme Source” it is mentioned that one of the early sources for the 4 yogas of Semde is a tantra called “The Secret Lamp of Wisdom” ( ye shes gsang ba sgron ma rin po che man ngag gi rgyud ). I tried to track down this tantra, and came across this text in russian , which seems to be a russ...

Fa Dao, I think you can buy everything @ SSI if you received DI (except for the longsal books), however, that doesn't mean you can practice everything without receiving the particular transmission. For example, there is a book entitled "Longchenpa's Precious Ship" which includes a Kunjed Gyalpo Guru...

Re: Tara Mandala Chogyal Namkhai Norbu & Lama Tsultrim Allio

Also, Rinpoche displayed an extremely touching act of generosity at the end of the retreat, which actually ties in to this whole thread. I have never seen a Lama refuse dana. Ever. Nor do I ever expect them to. It solidifies the tendrel between the teacher and student, etc. But when Rinpoche was pu...

Re: Most recent terma?

it's not that they are revealed through these processes, but rather that these visions are considered to be instances of actually meeting with enlightened beings. Right, I guess I phrased my question above badly... But you answered my question anyway: pure visions can occur in the dream (i.e. mnal ...

Thank you, Mutsuk!

So, is mnal chos then just one way or method to reveal dag snang teachings? We have, for example, Dudjom Lingpa's "dag snang ye shes drwa ba" -- was that revealed by other means than through mnal chos?

Instead of calling Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche's Longsal Teachings "termas" or "mnal chos", how about: rMi-lam gTer Now I don't think that Chögyal Namkhai Norbu refers to them as such, however I also don't think that rMi-lam gTer is a terminology invented by Jim Valby, John Myrdhin Reynolds, or ...

No. Tertöns generally distinguish mnal-chos and termas quite clearly. The conditions for revealing one or the other are different.
So ChNN just calls his "mnal chos" termas, even though they actually are no termas at all? :thinking:
