Re: Confused about nature of mind introduction

Thanks for the replies. @Yeti, that must have been quite the experience. I've only seen documentaries and heard various things about Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, but he must have been an awesome person to get to meet. Can I ask, what practices were you doing when you finally recognized? If I'm understa...

Re: Confused about nature of mind introduction

Hello every one. I've been browsing this board since I found it recently and haven't been able to find a concern I've been having in any other thread, so thought I'd register and ask. I've been chasing after the dzogchen experience for some time now and earlier this year I watched a webcast with Ch...

Richard Barron has translated a commentary to the Chetsun Nyingtig, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo's terma teaching, but I can't find it anywhere online. This is it, http://rywiki.tsadra.org/index.php/The_Sphere_of_Timeless_Awareness. Would anyone know if a private shop at a western monastery would have i...

Re: cycles

Perhaps I could ask an even more basic question. What is a terma "cycle". It can be a lot of things, but a general description is that they contain teachings and practices that are related to each other. For example the Kunzang Tugtik. This terma contains originally only a root text, an e...

Re: Shamanistic influence on Tibetan Buddhism

This is surprising, wouldnt one expect Padmasambhava's main practice to be dzogchen? You think Sri Heruka or Hevajra are not Dzogchen? I should say, the may not be, but they may also be included as "dzogchen" practice. well there seem to be differing opinions on this here. People like you...

Re: a question on the six exercises of Naropa

Whether or not Nyingma has such a set of physical exercises is what I hope to know. I am more interested in such exercises described in terma texts, and especially in earth termas, as the latter is deemed more profound and less tampered. [When Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo compared Chokgyur's earth terma...

Re: "Superior practitioners will do in seven days"

And there are many stories such as those of the Mahasiddhas that spent 12 years and then reached realization. What is significant about the number 12? Did they really each take the same amount of time or is it literary/symbolic use of the 12 year time period. Its a full round in Tibetan and Chinese...

Volume One of the Nyingma section will contain a number of Dzogchen Longde texts. A very interesting project, Volume 14 on Chö is already available.

Peaceful deities are related to the eight consciousnesses. Wrathful deities are related to the senses organs.
