Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

It's not that difficult: Information from publicly available texts and talks is permissible, information from restricted texts and talks is not permissible. Anything that falls in the grey zone should be considered as not permissible. It is better that one should err on the side of caution rather t...

Re: Merging With The True Self While Dying by Elio Guarisco: Why?

I hear you krodha. Self is a loaded word and not in a good way. There are plenty of words he could have used. Trye self just gives fuels to the perennealists.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

It’s sanctamonius shaming. Anyone has the right to ask a question in regards to a practice. Anyone has the right not to answer that question because they feel it may breach samaya.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Of course but the questions being asked here are very basic and have been addressed before. We all need to support each other not shame them into the shadows of self doubt and isolation.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Some questions and topics are best suited for email. Rather than talking about things that should not be public, next time just email your local DC or someone from the DC here. Or how about not trying to condition other people..... Now more than ever this thread should be a bastion of support and e...

Re: Is Dharma practice a struggle for you?

It sure is a struggle. In fact it's a living hell. I have a severe rlung disorder, which makes mantra recitation torturous. But all in all dharma practice is like taking medication daily. I know no matter what suffering occurs during my practice that I am generating oceans of merit in order to be ab...

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

CTR either originated the term 'crazy wisdom' or appropriated it from some other source and introduced it to a Buddhist context. At that time he hung out a lot with Richard Alpert aka Ram Dass. Possibly it was something that Alpert brought to the table that came from his guru Neem Karoli Baba...I a...

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1945656222162035&id=173546896039652 That worked. Well, I am not sure. It could be from one of the many video journals that exist with Rinpoche. It seems there must be a lot of material of this kind, and various recordings of SoV and other things, but they...

Re: Ngakpa International - Vajrayana Training

Re: my last comment in this thread, someone pointed out via PM that I’d overlooked one brief mention of Ngak’chang Rinpoche in her extended bio.

Re: November Nyingthig Yabzhi in Santa Fe

I would assume he would be booked during the retreat obviously. However, I can put you in touch with his translator and perhaps you can do a long distance interview beforehand. Very happy you are coming to this auspicious event!!
