Re: Did the 84 mahasiddhas authorize others to teach?

Re: Did the 84 mahasiddhas authorize others to teach?

And a few ones of them - according to Buddhist sources - were actually non-Buddhists. AFAIK the non-Buddhist ones are not described as having actually attained Mahasiddhi. Read any book on the 84 mahasiddhas. A few of them where not Buddhists but attained the same level of realisation. /magnus

I have read about that but I was wondering about this time specifically. It is always a donwang if it is on webcast, in my experience at least. /magnus It was not webcasted.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Does someone know if the Mandarava initiation that ChNNR gave in the last Mandarava drubchen was a tonwang? Or, if not, what was it?

Re: "Ripening" empowerment = ?

What precisely is being referred to when an initiation is listed as a "ripening" empowerment? Would this be rendered back into Sanskrit properly as vipāka abhiśeka ? The term in Tibetan seems to be smin byed kyi dbang (see attachment ;) ). By that definition, aren't all initiations considered ripen...

Re: Curious about this white mahakala yab yum

Kind of makes sense. /magnus Actually, I can't find a source that lists him as a Terton other than the Rigpawiki, and I think they're basing that off the fact that he revealed pure visions. It says that he had pure visions of Guru Rinpoche, and that he practiced Kurukulle. Putting all that together...

Re: Curious about this white mahakala yab yum

Possible, though there's some Geluk iconography which makes me question that--Gelukpas are pretty specific about what Terma they incorporate. The only Chagdrupas outside of the Shangpa traditions I'm aware of are one from Chogling Tersar, and I think one from Jangter. I'm 100% sure the above is fro...

Very interesting, and not part of the traditional 13 transmissions of the Six Armed Protector according to the Shangpa Kagyu. There are Yabyum Chagdrupas, but the White one is not one of them.

Now I am confused. So, is this going to be the Longchen Nyingtik or the Nyingtik Yabzhi empowerment?
Yumkha Dechen Gyalmo is from the Longchen Nyingtik, not the Nyingtik Yabshi. So obviously it will not be the Nyingtik Yabshi.

Dimitry has written some great stuff. I have a lot of respect for his work. Interesting that he classifies nam mkha' ar gtad under togal, not trekcho.
It can be taught both in the context of Trechö and Tögal according to teachings I received from Chokling Rinpoche.

That's what this guy claims about karma kagyu.is this true?
He don't seem to claim anything about the Karma Kagyu, there is just a quote from Shamar Rinpoche?
