Re: Was denied recorded teachings, thoughts and emotions run wild

O.k., if possible, I need help here and advice: Any comments ? Manju If you can listen to CHNN's teachings online & take DI with him in the future that could be very important for you imho, but maybe you want DI from a different teacher; only thing is I don't know who you are referring to here so I...

Re: recommended Dzogchen retreats/courses/teachers

Anyone know UK dzogchen lamas/teachers? In addition to what others have said, this looks like an interesting center, maybe you could attend the teaching by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche in June: CHOKYI NYIMA RINPOCHE: Annual Seminar with Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, 19- 24 June 2016 "We are delighted Rinpoche ha...

CHNN Rinpoche has said you can do that so there is nothing wrong with the English A.
You can make one like that, later you might want to try the Tibetan A

Re: Dzogchen and Tsongkhapa Madhyamaka

Not that new. There have been practitioners of Dzogchen among the Gelugpas from the time of Tsongkhapa onwards. Never everyone in Tibet was a Sarma bigot. There's nothing bigoted about wanting to practise only one tradition and its teachings. It's rejecting other traditions that's the problem, but ...

Re: Dzogchen and Ngondro

I haven't done any ngondro , and I've found the semdzins, rushens (and lojongs) to be some of the most profound practices ever--- provided they are practiced properly. In fact, I've had a strong anti-tantra bias personally, but I've found all of the DC practices to be eerily effective. I haven't fo...

Why is he or she your favorite?

One of my favorite on youtube is Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, for example:

You asked "Why?"... because of his insights and humor.

Dependent origination is just the perception of the deluded. Because it's all just "images on the mirror"? smj, remember I mentioned to you that the mirror can remain completely empty of phenomena, that's because for a Buddha there is no secondary cause for those images to appear in the mirror, but...

It's incorrect to say that 'the innate mind of clear light is eclipsed by coarser consciousnesses' His Holiness the Dali Lama's quote from Rigpa Shedra does not seem incorrect to me but maybe thats a matter of interpretation, you're free to think that HHDL stands in opposition to what Longchenpa ha...
