Re: Seriously approaching Semde on ones own

Not that it is an bad advice but the semdzins belong to the Mengakde. /magnus Typically yes. They can indeed be very powerful methods for working with semde an longde as well. How do you find it's useful to include them? Within a combined session where you do a bit of both, or separate semde and se...

Re: Seriously approaching Semde on ones own

I've corresponded with Elias Capriles in the past, I would certainly ask him again if I ran into anything. Does anyone have a suggested practice schedule, particularly if you've attempted something like this on your own - a long term dedicated daily practice in lieu of being able to do a retreat? I...

Re: Troma nagmo and rainbow body

I don't understand why one will need trekchod and togal to attain rainbow body. The chinese site reported that a Nyingma lama who refused to practice any other methods other than mandala offering has attained rainbow body. If they attained rainbow body they were practicing trekcho and/or thogal. Pe...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Rinpoche always emphazised quality to be more much more important than quantity, maybe that's why he asked so few time of application (few counts), however, this tells me that it depends more on each one's capacity that in a predeterminated amount of time or repetitions. he said like if one is in p...

Re: Kusali of Longchen Nyingthig Ngongdro?

Hey y'all, I'm wondering about the Kusali Chod section of the Longchen Nyingthig Ngondro. Is this something one needs to have an empowerment for? Or can one simply receive the lung for the Ngondro? I saw another post on Dharmawheel here elaborating that one does not use the Kangling, Damaru, and Be...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I have a Lama I can ask for basic instruction in a thing like that, but i'm not sure that would help with the specific way to use it with the Tuns and Ganapuja, would it? I think Josef likely meant practice with DC members to learn how it’s done in the DC (which one presumes is how Rinpoche did it,...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

What is the best resource to become familiar with using the damaru and the mudras for the medium and long tun? I mean they are in the text, but there's a lot of guesswork if that's all I use. The best way to learn how to use the damaru is by practicing in a group. I have a Lama I can ask for basic ...

Re: Dzogchen // Middle Way

Quick question: Is Dzogchen contemplation (e.g. Norbu Rinpoche's guru yoga) a "middle way" between recognizing versus not recognizing an object? By recognition, I mean reacting to a sense impression of the object with a conscious (even an inner linguistic) affirmative cognition — like, "this is my ...
