Re: Requirements for Vajrayogini

There is a Sakya Vajrayogini empowerment coming up. The requirements listed is any HYT empowerment. Doesn't it have to be a Sakya mother tantra empowerment? AfAIK, it has to be a major sakya wangchen, meaning two days empowerment. For Vajrayogini, the best will be Hevajra or Chakrasamvara. This Sum...

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...

...He opined that old termas such as those of Guru Chowang and Nyangral Nyima Ozer are sufficient and there is no need to reveal anything else.
Any idea why he held this opinion?

Re: Non-duality in dzogchen

I suppose the issue I have is that there simply isn't a correct conceptual view which accurately describes the ultimate nature. It simply will not fit into a box. The Dzogchen tantras and it's ancillary literature assure us the correct understanding is the triune aspects of wisdom; essence, nature ...

Re: Who can read Dzogchen books?

I think a classic sacred text like the Precious Treasury of Pith Instructions; man ngag mdzod for example can be read by anyone who has Dzogchen transmission. And since in the colophon the author signs his name as Longchen Rabjam, I think it's correct to designate this text as belonging to the upade...

Re: Is Dharma practice a struggle for you?

We also don't have to accomplish this alone. Even if we can't yet benefit directly from a teacher or sangha, such as in my case, the buddhas and bodhisattvas have unobstructed vision, as Shantideva says. They see and hear the lonely practitioner with heavy defilements who calls out, "Compassionate ...

"The Lamentation of Rudra" from the Stainless King of Confession tantra goes into this a bit. It's one of the most intense confessions and it never fails to illicit strong feelings of lament and remorse.
