Are they included in the upcoming empowerment at Shechen monatery by Kyabje Rabjam Rinpoche in April?

No, since they are not a part of either Jigme Lingpa's or Patrul's sungbum (collected works).

Re: Are Bonpos vegetarian?

To Mr. heart: There are vegetarian Dzogchen masters, unfortunately most of them live in countries unaccessible to me. To want to study with this or that master is actually foundation of vajrayana - we want to study with a root master we have special karmic connection with, many are there accounts o...

Re: Are Bonpos vegetarian?

So if I am an absolute die-hard vegan, where can I find a master that would fit with my basic beliefs? P.S. Please don't preach that my attitude to master-student relationship is already wrong if I want to study with a vegetarian master. I want to study with a vegetarian master, I want to study wit...

Re: Question

This is not a real tulku. Real tulkus emanate from the dharmakāya and are omniscient. This is referring to "blessed" tulkus, who at best are bodhisattvas on the stages. Could be, I really don't know.

Re: Question

Tulkus, I been told, have recognised the primordial pure ground but get slightly obscured by taking a body voluntarily and so have to again study and practice. This is not a real tulku.

Re: Question

Maybe this can help: There is only one mind; it is not that there are two minds, one recognizing the other. In the very moment of recognizing, it is like a knot that is untied. We don’t have to do anything further than that, leave it untied. In the moment of looking, it is already seen. It is not th...

Re: Question

What you mean when you mention "realizing", you talk of realizing as if it is some sort of builded achievement? The third statement of Garab Dorje. Full integration. Total realization. To realize means to become aware of, and even if one cant force realizing nature it is not a self occurring thing ...

Re: Dzogchen teacher in Bon tradition

I don't consider Tantra as deficient. It's just not for everybody. Like everything :) My point is that it is possible to practice Dzogchen without Tantra and there is even historical evidence that it was practiced this way. But if we consider Tantra as a necessary step in order to "reach" Dzogchen ...

Re: Yidam w Togal as dzogrim

Although you could argue KonChok Chidu (or even LaDrup Tigle Gyachen) are not yidam practices, in some sense they are Lama practices that function as yidam practices, and both of these definitely have Togal as well. Konchok Chidu has everything, soup to nuts... Not only Konchok Chidu, most Nyingtik...

It is translated in Karl Brunnhölzl new book "A Lullaby to Awaken the Heart: The Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra and Its Tibetan Commentaries".
