Re: Thoughts on Dzogchen without buddhism?

How in the world can anyone receive a DI that early? It can be done at any time. For example in the Vajradhatu centers Trungpa gave direct introduction to all before starting the Ngöndro. Mingyur Rinpoche do the same in his "Path of liberation". These are both a very organized examples from the Kag...

Re: Dzogchen and Mahamudra: differences and similarities

Garchen Rinpoche also gives Ganges Mahamudra instructions online via live stream. Indeed. In fact, this coming June 30 – July 1 Garchen Rinpoche will be offering pith instruction on the Ganges Mahamudra. Don't know if it will be live streamed, but I'm guessing it will. I received this teaching from...

Re: refuge tree visualisation

I’ve been doing this for some weeks or so. I’ve realised it took me almost 1 hour plus to do it ( plus the stress and breathing stress when visulaising the tree ). I would like to ask all of you how do you personally visualise the tree? Because I try to do a perfect clean clear visulisation of all ...

Re: Dzogchen and Mahamudra: differences and similarities

Is it correct that Dzogchen starts off with DI and develops on the basis of that whereas Mahamudra offers a gradual part in which the guru is NOT directly and unmistakenly showing the nondualist view to the student? No, it is not correct to say this. Is guru in mahamudra giving sorts of DI like in ...

Right now, Tibetan monastics have employment status. They are granted income, bank account, car, mobile phone, pension.

Re: Online Ngondro programs

Re: Online Ngondro programs

I already know of the programs by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche (though not really a ngondro program as it is much longer and includes other things), and Mingyur Rinpoche. I was wondering if there are also other good ngondro programs of this kind. There is a Ngondro in the Tripple Excellence program. It co...

Re: non-physical heat during dzogchen meditation

Do you not notice how every single Dzogchen master say the same? I am well aware that for many dzogchen practitioners, their only source of information is their own teacher plus probably some unrestricted books of other teachers. Because of their "tunnel vision", they simply assume that the teachin...

Yes, because Sem side is the completion stage of Maha and anuyoga. This is also how ChNN teaches the practice sems side in a practical sense. Yes, that is a good point.

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

Kevin, there are of course two main Dharmas: The Dharma of Scripture and the Dharma of Realization. Longchenpa is universally regarded as being an incredibly realized Dzogchen master. It's not unlikely that he referenced passages in specific tantras to support his assertion, as he often does that, ...

Exactly what is being transmitted? Are Changchub Dorje's termas being given?

Too vague....
I have seen it on her schedule previous, it is a Dzogchen text most probably a terma.
