Re: Travelling to heavens and pure realms

I have already recommended one way to do that here . How can one stay awake for three months while constantly moving ? Is that a metaphor for something? The sutra says 7 days. The Kaihogyo that Tendai monks do now is about 1000 days, but only about 9 days no sleep. The Pratyutpanna-based practice d...

How could he visit 'Sukhavati heaven' in a reasonable time-frame - like, a few months, or a year maybe? Any tips?

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

There is an email from ChNNR's family. His health is not good at all. Will you link this email? It was posted to norbunet.I think you need to be a group member to see that email. Here is a picture of Rinpoche from a week ago photo-Enzo-Russo-P1050599-e1536664352991.jpg

Re: Ngakpa International - Vajrayana Training

Indeed in order to have realisation one needs to rely on a lineage.Whether that realisation will manifest in this life or sometime in future lives is unknown at this point.But if it manifests in the future lives it may manifest outside of a lineage. And such a person is called a pratyekabuddha, and...

Re: Ngakpa International - Vajrayana Training

The late Thinley Norbu would disagree. Would you care to flesh that out a bit, Florin? I, for one, have no context and therefore no idea what you are talking about. I do not think it's accurate to say the late Thinley norbu rinpoche would disagree. You make it seem as if he's waving a flag on havin...

I'm not even sure what SMS is as someone new - the link just describes what appears to be a three year waiting period to become a member of the community although some limited access is apparently available.

Re: What Shamatha tradition best prepares one for Dzogchen?

Wallace, in his book on shamatha from Dudjom Lingpa's revelation, suggests that the tremendous potential that can be developed by extensively training in shamahta, can become infinitely more powerful if on that basis we continue to train in vipashyana, generation, treckchod, thogal, etc.

Re: Realization

Impermenance is the very nature of all phenomena. Of course this does not change when we are in rigpa. Quite the opposite (as Magnus already said). Yeah, not quite. In dzogchen is totally different. Your primordially pure state is the nature of all dharmas. The Kunjed Gyalpo says:" I am the root of...

So vision dues to understanding will be permanent? I dind't mean to say that the consequence of misunderstanding is impermanence.

Re: Realization

You are hardly a baby Florin. Primordial purity and impermanence are closely connected and because of that contemplating impermanence is very important in Dzogchen. /magnus I would say impermanence "happens" before dzogchen. It Is when we conventionally have "things" that appear to arise, decay and...

He explains that when we are able to integra...
