Re: gektor colors and ornaments

Ok yes, namcho shitro with changchog etc. yes. you practice this? is very nice, and useful! Only that one time with Rinpoche as a collective practice. Still was very generous of Rinpoche to condense that practice down to its essence. Actually the only thing missing is the empowerment that normally ...

Re: A question about secrecy within Tibetan Buddhism

hi Magnus, thank you for sharing your opinion. i guess we have agree to disagree. it's nice to know it works for you just fine. as for me i like to go old-school tibetan way. that is, you get close to your guru so you can be really exposed to him for him to guide you. many westerners nowadays think...

Re: A question about secrecy within Tibetan Buddhism

tomdzogchen27, my take on it is that a close relationship with and existence of a root guru are indispensable. if you'd like to learn swimming you can get a picture from books, but you can not learn it properly without a water and a guide, who will observe your movements, see your mistakes and corr...

Re: Help with a mantra/ Are you numb??

Last week Chokyi Nyima's students had a virtual birthday party for him online. One of the offerings is a mantra that they did not write out...it sounds like : Om Lama rang nee, gee oom daye soha. Does this sound familiar to anyone? You can hear it here: https://dharmasun.org/birthday/ It starts at ...

Re: Practicing dzogchen without tantric vows? Do i need them?

You don’t need tantric vows to practice dzogchen. What you need is direct introduction from a teacher that meets all the qualifications, I.e. a teacher that teaches in perfect harmony with Garab Dorjes three statements. Then later if your interested, you can discover the differences between initiat...

Absolutly not true. Rigpa tsel wang is indispensable. No debate whatsoever Okay. Please, why is this so? Because only a person that have gained confidence in the natural state can introduce an other person to the natural state. Also the introduction is just the first step on the path so you need to...

Re: Clarification on terms

Thanks for your replies. Would 'primordial essence' also be a legitimate translation of kadrag? Kadag is emptiness, the translation should somehow reflect that. Ka dag means primordial (ka) purity (dag) when it is a noun or primordially pure (adj.). It is short for ka nas dag pa. Since in Dzogchen ...
