Re: Looking for Dzogchen Semde material

According to Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, this is actually a semde text also: You are the Eyes of the World. The title is strange, however. https://www.amazon.com/You-Are-Eyes-World-Longchenpa/dp/155939367X I have never read it. this is really good too: https://shop.shangshunguk.org/product/oral...

Re: Vajrayana is not Tibetan Buddhism

The linked page says: In the 1970s, Tibetan pioneers like Tarthang Tulku, Lama Yeshé, and Chögyam Trungpa developed modern presentations of Vajrayana. Around 1990, the Tibetan power structure put a stop to that. I'm baffled - does anybody know what he's talking about? Quite apart from the fact that...

That's what this guy claims about karma kagyu.is this true?
He don't seem to claim anything about the Karma Kagyu, there is just a quote from Shamar Rinpoche?

Hey all. I've received this lung, and just now I was trying to order a copy of the printed instructions for the practice, but none are available; neither is the mp3.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Thanks for the information, Gerardo also told me a few years ago he is old friends with ChNN. I also believe there is a strong connection between ChNN and Tulku Urgyen. TUR gave ChNN the Dzogchen Desum in Nepal many years ago, and ChNN composed songs about TUR, but he can't find them, I asked him a...

Re: student-master relationship in Vajrayana

So, trying to get it right now. It really doesn't matter if you get direct introduction alone, in a small group or in a big group. You most certainly must get it several times and you do need to work with the master if you want to be able to decide on one point. The easiest way to make that happen i...

Re: Merit = good karma ?

Ok, so at dinner tonight I asked 3 different western lamas about this thread. I asked if you could say that "merit = good karma", as in something that is produced by an action before it ripens as result. I presented the opposing viewpoint as saying that there is only action and result in a two-step...

Torch of Certainty, chapter on Mandala Offerings. p.93:
"Merit" refers to the cumulative effects of meritorious actions.
I guess Kongrul needs to get educated on the subject.
meritorious actions = meritorious karma

Re: Merit = good karma ?

There is a sequence: 1. An action, which produces 2. Karma, which after some time ripens into 3. Outcome/vipaka. Or don’t you believe in “unripened karma”? Karma means literally action so 1 and 2 are the same. /magnus So you are saying that the idea of “unripened karma” is nonsense? When I sit down...

Re: Merit = good karma ?

what is produced is called “merit” or “good karma”. No, the outcome of an action is not good karma, it is good karma VIPAKA. A good OUTCOME (vipaka) of ACTION (karma). It is not rocket science. If you are going to use a term, use it correctly. There is a sequence: 1. An action, which produces 2. Ka...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Interestingly I was talking to a student of Tsoknyi Rinpoche recently and learned that their group has a sadhana practice that not only includes Song of the Vajra (and the purification of the five elements), but uses the same melody. Tsoknyi Rinpoche presumably received it from ChNN though. Interes...

Also, I was wondering if SoV is practiced by other lineages. I don't think I've seen it mentioned anywhere else so far. Yes, it is. But not with ChNNR's melody. Often a part of liberation of wearing mantras. Also there are several version. /magnus Yes, if I remember correctly the melody is really s...
