Re: Yidam w Togal as dzogrim

Since the quintessential secret cycle depends on the intimate instructions of the Guru. I think it's correct to assert that any yidam from the HYT, even from Sarma would be effective. Even so, the Ati Yoga vidyadharas say that to claim that the ultimate result is kayas with attributes is the fault o...

100 A's

There was a story I read a while back, but I can't seem to find it. In the story there was a Terton who was about to reveal a terma, but before he did he requested his students to melodiously sing 100 A's. Does anyone know where I can find the story and who the Terton was? (I believe it was Chogkur ...

Re: Illuminating Quotes by Malcolm Namdrol-la

That's good to know. So why is 10 minutes of a Song of Vajra better than 10 minutes of some other Atiyoga guru yoga mantra and visualization? And then how is that better than just resting in rigpa? Because the song of the vajra has another name "The primordial state of Samantabhadra". When relying ...

Re: Question on Duality/Other

Mulling over the content in this thread, I am curious if anyone has any visuals (diagrams or the like) for the concepts discussed in this thread? For example, a picture of a conceptual presentation of Akanishtha, a diagram of how the dharmakaya, sambhogakaya, and nirmanakaya are related, etc.). I k...

Re: Methods for keeping Samaya clean

I was looking to get a general list of methods used for keeping Samaya clean. I know there's the usual ones such as the Vajrasattva mantra and participating in tsok practices, but I was wondering if there were any others. Does a daily practice session count? Or guru yoga? All of the above? Confessi...

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

The MahaGuru CHNNR gave unsurpassed upadesha . That's like receiving the ticket to the last station. Choo choo. If only it were so simple. My experience is that one needs a teacher on hand for when various issues come up and to explain details as they arise. I have been on trains where in the middl...

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

Not trying to be disrespectful or anything, but what does it mean to have a root guru that is no longer incarnate? Especially in regards to their terma. It is something that I have been thinking about in connection to my own teacher and his terma. My view is that one has to achieve a certain level ...

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

My Lama has said that no empowerment is needed for the Ngondro we practice, which is the Dudjom Tersar Ngondro When I asked at Saraha, a few people said I could practice it with no anything. But then others say one needs the lung. I suspect it was one of those "get it when you can but you can pract...

From my understanding of what it means to be a yogi I'd have to opine Nyingma.

Even in this world, and even now, there are said to be many hidden yogis or discreet yogis, called bepay naljor in Tibetan.
