Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

No prob, thanks for sharing. Is the secret rushen of the Dra Thalgyur different from the ‘standard’ secret rushen of the mind? According to CNNR the rushens from Ratna Lingpa’s re-descovered terma are easier for practitioners and slightly different form the ones contained in the Nyingthig of Vimala...

Re: What to Recite at Graveyards?

What sort of dharanis and mantras should I recite at an old graveyard/charnel ground, if there is any in particular? Any trees or signs to look out for? If you dont know any mantras or rituals, read the tombstones connect with their stories, rest in that understanding and spread love inside the fee...

Re: Kilung life release

If you want to perform life release go to a petshop. There you can find live crickets and worms for cheap. Life is life. Lots of pet shops in places where crickets don't normally exist, carry crickets (and likewise for other fish, insects, and so on.) So one shouldn't release animals that don't nat...

Re: Ichinen Sanzen/Mahavairocana /Gohonzon/?Rigpa?

So Johnny Dangerous, let me try to explain synthetically and respectfully: the Dzogchen texts really speak of two types of practices that are performed by two types of individuals: the Lamrimpas and the Cigcarpas, that is, those who follow the gradual path and those who follow the sudden path. Ther...

Re: Rainbow body questions

That's the self liberation glass ceiling I guess. Traditionly HYT was never given in large groups, but very intimate setting. Dzogchen was even more intimate. So in many ways we've been very fortunate. An embarrassment of riches. Regards So, has Dzogchen always been elitist? Only accessible by a sm...

Sems sde does not have a complete path since it is devoid of the teachings of the secret and unsurpassed secret cycle of man ngag sde. Yeah. Complete nonsense. Misleading people much ?

It is quite often nepotism. They are the son, daughter, nephew of some high lamas and are enthroned for the continuation of power.

Re: Practicing without possibility of physical contact with teacher

Fascination with dzogchen is an indication of a certain past connection. But you are born into some specific circumstances beyond your context where the current cultural conditioning strengthens past lives tendencies. We don’t know what these tendencies are but when they meet strong currents and con...

Re: Accepting a guru you haven’t personally met?

You do not need to have a personal relationship with them for them to be your guru. A lama who doesn't know your name, who you've only interacted with by sitting in a crowd in one mass empowerment: you have samaya with that lama just as much as with the lama who has tea with you once a week and giv...
