Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

This recent emphasis on frequent ganapuja is giving me anxiety as I’ve always struggled with the extremely complex visualizations in the book of Thun & GP - transforming into a series of deities, revolving mantras around a central Hum etc. Is there a simpler way that a solo practitioner (no groups ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Shitro when a Master dies?!? Unusual..... Doesn't make sense. :shrug: Especially when the master is still alive. Well, that's what his students here told me. They stated they will be doing a Zhitro for him(I think it was Anuyoga) and the Guru Yoga Ah. :shrug: We should follow Rinpoches advice.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Rinpoche has been telling us what we should do for decades. In many cases he has scolded, implored, and used a variety of methods to get us to follow his simple advice. These current circumstances are no different. We have to relax, reflect on his teachings, and practice Guru Yoga.

Re: Dungse Rigzin Dorje Rinpoche

No, it is because they won’t let him travel with more than one other person. A mutual friend told me that the issue was that DHS classified all the people (the monks and nuns) who are with him in Assam as potential terrorists. The issue being that DHS has simply decided to blanket classify people f...

Ill be sure to send you a private message right before I attain jalu.
Unfortunately for you my masters will probably not be around anymore, at least not in their current form.
I think that you are deluding yourself.

You didn't understand the quote correctly.

Oh, I understood the quote. It's not too difficult to follow. Once you attain the realization of greater one taste and purify your tainted samaya, I suppose you will know. That is not an answer to my question. I asked for possible examples of signs of dakinis (described in literature). The quote al...
