Re: Reliance on a master

I think that alongside the myriad distractions and delusions of modern life there are also great opportunities for realization for those with a true desire for such... information being so readily available, although of course discernment is key. Perhaps we live in a time where the role of the mast...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

So...by the schedule i'm assuming no WWT. I'm wondering if by now there is no senior DC practitioner able to give DI etc. And if so........would people accept it. I do hope we in the dc succed in this, so many total realized beings appears from the west and the transmission keep living in a continu...

A ridiculous trivialisation imo.
But this post is from the person who "has studied more Dzogchen than anyone on the planet".

It couldnt possibly be trivial since it is being brought to us by an individual of such unquestionable authority and superiority.

Does having received Shitro and DI from ChNNR give me the prerequisite empowerments to read all tantras?
It's best to get the lung for the text you are studying.
If you received the Dra Thalgyur from Rinpoche that gives you plenty to work with.

There is a class tomorrow teaching them, but I would like to know of any benefits regarding our channels winds and drops and how it would help in spiritual realisation ?
It is an essential aspect of vajrayana practice that isnt usually a open topic of discussion.

Do all current Dzogchen lineages include Guru Rinpoche? Bon lineages I would imagine don’t necessarily include him. I’ve never encountered a Buddhist Dzogchen lineage that doesn’t have him in there in some way. bon is connected with prahevajra without GP? i mean, to be part of the transmission No, ...

Re: How to End Samaya?

I understand that, but I am not satisfied because it seems very limiting, restrictive, and apathetic. It just doesn't fit with what I feel Vajrayana and Mahayana is. I don't think you have to give back your vows so you can focus on sutra. I don't think it is really that hard to keep your samayas. E...

:hi: Is there something specific you're looking for in these threads? I want to know which Tibetan Buddhist school has more compassion and wisdom, which seems to be Nyingma/Terma/Dzogchen.

Which yidams can one NOT go to the essence with (G.Y.o.W.A., S.S., M., Ded.)?
Generally speaking, deities that are not from Anu yoga practices.

Now, now, SW, let's not disturb Josef's mind with any inconvenient facts.
Yes, after all, it is much more important to preserve the status quo.

Sorry, Acharya, pointing out bullshit has nothing to do with preserving the status quo.
