Wonderful post on the history of this great Yogi. Is this by chance the same Kunzang Dorje that was mentioned in "Blazing Splendour" as being Tulku Urgyen's youngest brother? Or is this a different Kunzang Dorje?
This was a different Kunzang Dorje.

Re: Bodhicitta is fleeting...

This past few weeks I have been trying to generate bodhicitta, which worked ( tho not a really strong one ). Yesterday after a heated argument , I found it really difficult to develop bodhicitta for beings - whenever I think of that enemy, I would just say “ hm, better to leave you all behind , sin...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I am wondering if Adriano Clemente might fit this role. He worked closely with Rinpoche for so many years and Rinpoche trusts that he has a very good grasp of dzogchen teachings. I was thinking more of situations where ChNN is unable to lead a retreat and webcast and a substitute found to avoid can...

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.

Re: Guru Rinpoche and Lineages

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...
