Re: Finding a qualified Teacher

Vaktar, Well, it's kind of a moot point because no one really knows. For me personally I judge teachers based on their bodhicitta, knowledge of tantras and sutras and sense of humor. I stopped caring about siddhis when I turned 30. That being said Lama Wangdor is a most excellent choice for OP to ch...

Re: Finding a qualified Teacher

Sorry but you didn't read the Rigpa Wiki link first. I meant "Rainbow Body of Great Transference" but I didn't want to get too technical. What I said about it being "very likely" in Lama Wangdor's case is based on private conversation with his student Lama Lena, who lived with Lama Wangdor in India...

Re: Finding a qualified Teacher

Near Tsopema one can perhaps meet Lama Wangdor Rinpoche . Lama Wangdor is highly reputed as a Dzogchen teacher and for being accessible. It seems very likely he has attained Rainbow Body . Sorry, but you have to die first to achieve Rainbow Body. Sorry but you didn't read the Rigpa Wiki link first....

Re: Lama Tsultrim Allione - Open Webcast Transmission - January 20, 2019

She seems to be advertising Chöd practice of Chögyal Namkha'i Norbu Rinpoche quite heavily as a course, and if you're quick you can get a discount on the price. Whether or not she has permission to give this empowerment, it is pretty crass IMHO to be advertising it commercially at this time and eve...

Re: How do we know our practice is working?

So I am sure that this question may be dismissed as "missing the point" by looking for results... I am at least aware of this potential setback. But I am sill naturally wondering how I might know if my practice is having the intended effect. For Dzogchen I am really just doing the Short Thun practi...

Re: DJKR letter to Aung San Suu Kyi

For the record I never said DKJR shouldn’t criticize the west. I stated he displays cognitive dissonance and that his constant bashing of westerners makes me personally not want to connect with him as a teacher. It’s not like this is the first time :roll:

Re: DJKR letter to Aung San Suu Kyi

Ehh, this letter has little to do with Aung San Suu Kyi and was just another chance for DJKR to take a dump on westerners. He hates us so much yet benefits personally from our existence. The cognitive dissonance is mind boggling.

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.

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.

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.
