Re: Buddhahood in This Life Transmission: 09/15/17

Is there also going to be a facebook stream? Just asking because a few days ago there was an event with the Dalai Lama on livestream and it was not possible to watch it there, while it was working normally on facebook, apparently this happened to several people. Yes, there will be a Facebook stream...

Re: Tögal for dzogchen beginners?

Re: DC Ödzer Chenma practice

There is Sutra of Odzer Chienma (Marici) which you can easily practice without any permissions. There are also Kriya Tantra empowerments for Marici. Personally never heard of higher yoga tantra practices but probably there are some. Not sure how NNR practice is categorized. It's an Anuyoga practice.

Re: Action Mantras

ChNN gives transmissions for many practices that have action mantras. All we are told is that they dont function unless massive amounts of the primary mantra have been done but either in the webcast or in the accompanying booklets it is never told what the purpose of action mantras are. I was simpl...

If the lama is instructing you to gain clarification from a textual source the lama probably considers that sufficient.

Not the first time I'd encountered this.
And given this fact,webcasting option doesn't seem to be viable anymore to me.
The webcast team will fix it.
