Re: ChNN on Jesus?

Please lock this thread. ChNN is sick and I can't imagine this thread will help his situation at all. Please have some respect for him and his transmission. Firstly, Rinpoche is (thank goodness!) recovering. "Sick" he certainly is not anymore. Secondly, I honestly do not think anyone (Odysseus and ...

Re: Melong in Dzogchen

I assume there are many other uses for the melong, but I'm sure they are secret and available only as pith instructions.

Re: Confused about nature of mind introduction

SoV is usually given during the lung for the Short Thun.

The lung is also included during the Anniversary transmissions.

Re: "highest practices" and anti-intellectualism

"Presumably you feel that ChNN is not so Kadampified, so how did that come about? I'm guessing it's because at least one of his own gurus had not been Kadampified, so how did he or they avoid that?" Obviously, Malcolm knows more about this than I. However, based on ChNNR's biography, His Root Guru,...

Re: "highest practices" and anti-intellectualism

... they never bothered to finish (much less start) Ngondro... So now, according to you, the various Dzogchen lineage ngondro are of no value? So Dudlom Lingpa did not know what he was doing or talking about when he taught/outlined the Dudjom Tersar nogndro? He never said that. He said people pract...

Re: "highest practices" and anti-intellectualism

I would say this sort of behavior comes from premature practitioners who tend to conceptualize their meditative experiences into the big obstacle of "I GOT IT". I feel if one truly had these realizations they could easily adapt them into the other vehicles and work with circumstances (as ChNN asks h...

Re: Namkhai Norbu and Vegetarianism

I consider myself blessed and beyond fortunate that the causes and conditions arose that have resulted in being able to practice the dharma in this life. A convert? frak no, never. Urgyen Dorje, like you I've had no support for coming across the dharma, not even a college professor who introduced it...

Re: China expands new measures to directly control Tibetan m

Tibetans can do what they want. I live in a town with a very large Tibetan population so I see daily the pain and longing they have for their country. They've assimilated very well into western culture, but you can tell that they truly want to be able to go home. That being said they are some of the...

Re: China expands new measures to directly control Tibetan m

False comparisons. The PRC does not plan to systematically kill off the Tibetans. They plan to assimilate them and make them self-identify as Chinese citizens, just as many Mongolians, Manchurians and so on came to do. Does anyone believe the present approach to the Tibetan issue is actually workin...

Re: China expands new measures to directly control Tibetan m

Indrajala i am continuously disgusted by your pro Chinese commentaries. Justifying their genocidal behavioral is no different than justifying Hitler's occupation of Eastern Europe. You really should toss your laptop and learn what compassion really is, not your oversized intellectual ramblings of wh...
