A person i met recently, who had some first hand information, mentioned that he heard Rinpoche’s daughter saying that she will be happy to give transmission in the future but only after she has taken care of her children’s education and their upbringing. Good news, if true. But -- why those running...

Re: Being "in the thought"

One way of explaining this is that In one case you have a unique stable open presence whereas in the other this presence is split into subject and object.

Re: Buddhahood in a lifetime ---how?

You have to be an exceptional individual, practice long and diligent for many years, follow the right teachings and have the right teacher. For all these to come together is rare.

Re: Seriously approaching Semde on ones own

Nobody said shine is semdzin. Now i want to explain precisely the meaning of the semdzins and their characteristics. Sem means mind: above all here mind means thoughts, which arise continuously; dzin means to hold. If we do concentration on an object, practically speaking this too is a semdzin; in f...

Re: Seriously approaching Semde on ones own

Technically any dzogchen method which involves fixation on an object or objectless and is specifically aimed at discovering one own real state is a semdzin. Naturally sems de and longde class have many semdzins.

Vajradhara still has attributes therefore is not a dharmakaya but a sambogakaya.
If they consider Vajradhara a dharmakaya aspect should he have any ornaments ?

Hello,

I was just wondering if Vajrasattva is Samanthabadra or Vajrapani?

Thank you.
Vajrapani is an emanation of Vajrasattva. According to tradition Garab Dorje has received the supreme teachings beyond cause and effect from Vajrapani.
Vajrasattva has attributes, Samantabadra doesn't.

The state of Dzogchen spontaneously results from the Dzogchen practice.
We are all f****d then.
... that would make the state of dzogchen a result that arises from causes, no different from the other eight yanas
