Hi,

I'd like to ask what is the point of lineage prayers? What is the benefit of reciting/singing them?
It is the vast and profound appreciation for the transmission that makes your Guru Yoga shine.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

By any chance does anyone have the image of Garab Dorje that appears in the Thun book in a big size? It's the same as the one used in this cover . You can have it printed and enlarge it . It should come out fine. https://timely-api-public.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com/38149_phpgQOllL_medium.jpeg Thank...

Earlier in the thread it was reported that Shitro is being performed. Does anyone know which Shitro is being performed and by whom? They are not doing Shitro, so I think we can all relax about that for the moment. Todays schedule in Dzamling Gar. Schedule : Tuesday 18 8:00am Guru yoga A White (firs...

You have to find a translator that is honest and skilful, some translators edit both questions and answers.

Re: What Shamatha tradition best prepares one for Dzogchen?

Well, as a student of both Alan Wallace and of Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche I think like this. Alan teaches shamatha from the point of view of different traditions, but his approach is characterized by his training in gelugpa/lamrim as well as Sri Lankan Therevada. That approach is a gradual one where you...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Some of Rinpoche's students may request empowerments as did he when he met his Root Lama.Was it necessary?No.In most cases it is not. Rinpochce rarely gives elaborate empowerments. You do realise that ChNNR received all the empowerments for Changchub Dorje's termas from Changchub Dorje's son. Empow...

Re: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche - online seminar on the "Union of Dzogchen & Mahamudra"

anybody know of a sadhana form of the latter songs (I think 5, 6, 7)? I can compile the quotes but I am hesitant to do so unless it's never been done before for no reason (I imagine there is a sadhana or at least a good reason why there isnt)... Or not even a "sadhana" but just a pithy, practical v...

Not sure if this is too in detail a question for a public forum(please let me know if so, I will edit it out), but when Rinpoche says visualizing the Trondu alone is enough when on a Tara retreat, does this include the seed syllable at the heart-center and/or the mantra rotating around it?

Ya. That’s my understanding of his position too. Not sure how you get to don’t do shamatha from that. I think the point he's making is that it doesn't make sense to do śamatha alone if we aspire to liberation. Now, Wallace does sometimes teach śamatha-only retreats, but his intent is to offer somet...

The natural state of totally naked awareness has the quality of being unimpeded; that is true freedom. Recognize the moment of totally open and unimpeded awareness, which does not hold or dwell on anything whatsoever. This is not the mere absence of thought activity, as in induced serenity. That is...
