Re: Another Topic of molesting female practitioner

Looks like it will go the same way as all these things seem to go.

I agree Samsara is a Prison we are bound to which we need to find the exit door.

I wish you all the best with life/practice and so on.

Thank-you for the debate!!!
It is important to understand you can't fix Samsara, it is unfixable. Quoting Dzongsar Khyentse here.

Re: Suffering

The problem is Samsara, the main quality of Samsara is Dukkha. Also Karma. There is no reason as such for any of it. So we have Dukkha now because of Negative Karma from the past. The Karma is owned by the individual which causes Attachment via Dependent Origination. To provide real meaning we seek...

Re: Suffering

'Du-kkha' literally translates as 'Hard-to Bear' or 'Difficult-to Bear'. I find this extremely interesting. Is a search for enlightenment, then, an aim to make life not so hard to bear? Is it to bear life in spite of its hardness? Is it both? Is it, in a sense, neither? :thinking: The problem is Sa...

OK, heart, thanks. Do any of these masters do online empowerments? I'm a bit limited in terms of resources for travel. Perhaps I could ask.
So far I haven't heard that online empowerment's happened with these masters.

Re: Barche Lamsel

Thanks, heart and Tlalok! Any suggestions on where and from whom I could get this empowerment? Would they ask me to complete prerequisites beforehand? All of Tulku Urgyens sons and Pakchok Rinpoche (Chokling Rinpoches son) give this empowerment regularly. But it is quite widespread and I think many...

Re: Barche Lamsel

I hope I could get an online empowerment for it. Tukdrup Barché Künsel... seems it's a collection of jointly found terma revelations. Cool. And it sounds like you're saying it can serve as a self-contained practice. That would be cool. Do you recommend The Great Gate ? Yes, the Barche Lamsel could ...

Re: Barche Lamsel

I am strongly drawn to this terma. I have heard it chanted online (as have about a million other people). But, I'm not sure how I am permitted to interact with it without empowerments or authorizations. I haven't done anything with it yet, aside from listening and feeling something nice and obstacl...

Re: Mantra and Dzogchen

If you understand how to practice ChNNR's Guru Yoga with a white Ah, then you understand the essence of kyerim and dzogrim. Of course there are endless details but that is the essence.

Re: Q: on Christopher Wilkinson translations

Hi, have you reviews on Christopher Wilkinson translations of the Dzogchen 17/18 Tantras? i saw that he translated a lot, but since this is an enormous amount of work i doubted of the quality of translations. Please, i'm not trying to critizise, just want to know which style (interpretative, mostly...

Re: Visualisations and Dzogchen

If people know the limitation of deity yoga (i.e. in term of visualization), they are likely to give different opinion. Probably one knows which level of absorption he or she will get with the deity. So, visualization has its own benefits as well as limitations. Deity in the highest level is the pa...

Re: Visualisations and Dzogchen

In many Nyingma lineages yidam practices are not merely a preliminary to Dzogchen. They may be an enhacement as well, and sometimes a non-optional one, too (to an extent, at least). Your presentation reifies the boundary between tantra and Dzogchen, something which in Nyingma is not really done (or...

Re: Visualisations and Dzogchen

Visualisations don´t belong to the Natural State of abiding , if you agree to this then it is your vision, a wrong vision according Dzogchen. Visions we have in the Natural State and never visualisations, maybe you are using the wrong terms........ If thoughts appear during our Natural State practi...

Re: Visualisations and Dzogchen

Tashi delek, With Dzogchen is meant abiding in the non dual State. if one is thinking , making visualisations etc.one is out of this Natural State. BEFORE this abiding there is dualism possible like done with Guru Yoga. Here we have object and subject, which never can happen in the Dzogchen practis...

Tashi delek, As far as i know are there in Dzogchen no visualizations possible, it is mainly practised in Tantra. The only visualization, i know in Dzogchen is before the Dzogchen "meditation", here we do the Guru Yoga where visualization is done like we know it in Tantra. Subject and object is her...

Re: Visualisations and Dzogchen

I also would like to say, visualisations have power. If you think of your ex-girlfriend/boyfriend an image will appear in your mind. It will capture your emotions better than your thoughts. In the same way the wisdom of the deity/master you visualise will capture your knowledge better than your thou...

Re: Visualisations and Dzogchen

Visualisations or rather the capacity to create images in your mind are natural. A big part of our conceptual mind deals with images. If you think about someone you know there will immediately be an image in your mind. Visualisations are 3D, you are not supposed visualise a flat deity. Visualisation...
