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...

I'm asking because I want to know which lineage has the biggest emphasis on the tradition of yogis.
From my understanding of what it means to be a yogi I'd have to opine Nyingma.

Re: Tibetan Yogis

Even in this world, and even now, there are said to be many hidden yogis or discreet yogis, called bepay naljor in Tibetan. It means those realized ones who are not generally recognized as great spiritual sages or saints, but have deeply tasted the fruit of enlightenment, and are living it. Perhaps...
