Re: Guru yoga with Samantabhadra?

In Nyingma, of course Guru Rinpoche is most often used for GY. Have you heard of anyone using Samantabhadra directly? Perhaps the Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra could be considered basically that. Kunjed Gyalpo Guru Yoga. It is described in vol 7 of the commentary to Kunjed Gyalpo translated by...

Re: Dzamling Gar Song - text and meaning from CNN (link)

If i am not mistaken there is a dance called the dance of the 12 A's that goes by the same name, Khalongdorjekar. It could be that they are one and the same thing with the one you mention above. Different dance, same name. There is the twelve A one, and then there is the one that is done on the klo...

Re: Dzamling Gar Song - text and meaning from CNN (link)

Dear all, I recently found this explanation of the "Dzamling Gar song" (Khalongdorjeikar of the Song of the Vajra) given by master CNN during his retreats.

"Khenpo Namdrol". Whoah. Is that the "Khenchen Namdrol Rinpoche" who took such a primitive view of the Rigpa students who had had enough of Sogyal Lakar? I'll say no more, but Google can be your friend.
Or is it another Namdrol?
I think it is the same person.
Just appalling to be honest.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I have to say, it is getting exhausting seeing people basically say to shut up any time anyone brings up something questioning the DC's direction. The fact is that Rinpoche is no longer running the DC. There appear to be a few different camps, I imagine each one claims they are carrying Rinpoche's ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Makes me really wonder why all these precautions... almost sounds like a test bunch :rolling: Maybe because the sangha has a tendency to querrel with each other and make a big deal about little thinga thay are different from what they want or expect.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

What i find curious is that this event is not listed on any of the oficial sites of IDC so my question is, is this event organised outside of the control of IDC ?
Or is just that they haven’t got to add it yet because is too early, fresh etc ? And an NDA ? Is this normal ?

Re: Inexpressibility and Precious Word Empowerment

In terms of its meaning, as it cannot be pointed out by words, it is inexpressible; as it cannot be known with ordinary modes of consciousness, it is inconceivable; and as it is does not fall into any extreme, it is the great freedom from elaboration. In the end, it is beyond all expressions, such ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

As an example consider all the practitioners across the centuries who went into retreat for many years and while in retreat their teacher died. They continued to practice afterwards and after some years achieved stable realization. People heard and requested they would teach. They started teaching....
