Re: Ashe Mahamudra retreats

... It's weird? I feel like there was a misunderstanding. Shambhala teachings are terma. They are not separate from Buddhism and that is the distinction SMR made by calling it Shambhala Buddhism. CTR never made teachings that were secular, he just called Dzogchen and Mahamudra secular. Whatever, I ...

Re: Green tara practice

Hii friends, I used to do almost every morning Green Tara practice. I do it before breakfast, because it is said that it is good doing this Tara practice before we ate meat or drink alcohol. But sometimes I do this practice also before noon, and sometimes also evening.Is it mean that I should not e...

Re: Difficulty doing Manjushri practices and prayers due to negative association

Hello all, I am a recovering Shambhalian. In Shambhala we were taught that the "Sakyong" is an emenation of Manjushri and that doing Manjushri practice or any prayers with Manjushri in them would strengthen our karmic connection to the "Sakyong". Given that it has come out that Mukpo has sexually a...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Is the Simhamukha mantra in the tun coming from Ayu Khandro or Jigme Lingpa or...? I have received the lung of Ayu Khandros terma but wasn't entirely sure if this is where the mantra in the tun originates. Both Ayu Khandro's Simhamukha terma and Jigme LIngpa's Simhamukha terma has been translated b...

Re: Requirements for Vajrayogini

Has Chogyal Namkhai Norbu every given Vajrayogini empowerments ? If so, I assume his requirements for practice would be the same as for other Yidams in the context of Dzogchen. Would that be correct? He wouldn't give Sakya empowerments that way since that lineage is pretty strict, but there are var...

Khorwa Dongdruk is Chogling Tersar--or, at least the most common version of it comes from that tradition. I seem to recall some commentary about it's relation to Kama.....
There is also a Khorwa Dongdruk among Adzom Drukpa's termas, the one ChNNR mainly taught.

Re: Live Stream Vajrakilaya Teachings, Empowerment and Drubchen 11/10 - 11/18

It's interesting, both Garchen R. and Drupon Rinchen Dorje Rinpoche emphasized in these teachings, that without the basis of love, compassion and bodhicitta, one can practice these sadhanas and accomplish the deity, but it's a worldly deity, a demon, not a Wisdom Being. They both used the word 'dem...

It isn't "demons", it is Mahadeva and Umadevi.

Re: Tigle Gyachen and Yeshe Lama

I remember reading somewhere that Tigle Gyachen is connected with Yeshe Lama; can anyone elaborate on that a little? In particular, it’s my impression that TG has its own empowerment separate from those of YL, so I’m assuming that despite receiving YL one would still need to receive the TG wang sep...

Who are the human figures that Vajrakilaya is standing on in the thangka?
Shiva and his consort.

There's four of them.
Either a bad thangka painter or an other tradition of Phurba that I don't know.

The empowerment was yesterday, now they are doing the drubchen.

According to the schedule there should be teachings and the drubchen tomorrow.
I think it haven't started yet.
