Re: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

How long were the stream? I didn't watch last 15 minutes. Can I continue this seminar? I can't pay for recordings. You should email them with your situation. I'm sure you'll be allowed to register anyway. Only the first 3 days are going to be streamed to those who aren't registered. I can take only...

Re: Who can read Dzogchen books?

Pael, IME, for both Vajrayana and Dzogchen, work with a qualified Teacher and follow Their instructions. Don't try to take any shortcuts. In Dharma, this doesn't work and actually may set you back. Do it the right way and the results are assured. ChNN is in parinirvana. No more Webcast. Books are o...

Re: Who can read Dzogchen books?

Anyone with cash. The question is, should you read them? It very much depends on the book in question. In general, if you do not have Dzogchen transmission, then it is best not to read them, even if they have been published by someone who has a reputation as a qualified guru a.k.a, Dzogchen master ...

If preliminary practices stress you, then you should probably NOT be practicing Vajrayana.
What should we do in this case? Having received empowerments already. Can Vajrasattva take me to the Pure Land?

Re: Charging for Dharma

My point is that no one has any cause to complain. Good point. And as more than one Vajrayana Lama has said, "Vajrayana is not a democracy." There are Dharma paths where the consensus of the group is key and there are those others. To each their own desire. Vajrayāna is also not socialist. Vajrayān...
