Re: "You need to know Tibetan to achieve enlightenment in this life"

Oh well, better luck next life then......

Learning Tibetan for me would be like learning nuclear physics.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Lolcat If it's a mixed bag you'll most likely be ok. Just say the prescribed prayer and mantra (bad to good) and do a nice hefty Tun in the morning. Tara in particular especially around job stuff.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Saying the prayer at the end of the calendar and in the App 3 times a day is sufficient.

Also the mantra to turn bad days to good is VERY important for days where it's looking a little sketchy on the calendar.

Re: Arrogance

Spend your free time around the severely mentally ill, developmentally disabled, homeless and people in hospice. Let them seep into your heart until they haunt you. As far as I can tell being a Buddhist in the west is the best way to increase your arrogance so balance it out with some REAL people. I...

The top row shows your personal relationship with that day's constellation.

If the general aspect had a strong influence there would be no people on the planet because almost everyday LITERALLY brings death and suffering.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

In the Practice of Vajrapani there are two mantras. Do you accumulate both of then or just the second one? The text is unclear.

Thanks!!

When one has problems with lust for example which makes staying commited in a relationship bit harder, will six loka practice (I am especially interested in the inner rushen one as it is easiest) help with it?

Yes, absolutely.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I have a question about the Guru practice for the SMS three roots. Can you accumulate the mantra normally, or do you have to recite it with the melody?

Thanks!

Re: Symptoms Before Vajra Hell

Think about it for a bit. These threads are filled with advice (and jokes) about how to avoid hell. Most of the advice is "do this or that elaborate ritual practice and you'll be fine" followed by "what if I cant do that practice?" This is anxiety provoking religious dogmatism. Rather than concerni...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

What a shitshow. Anyways, I highly recommend that those of you who are conflating tirthika views with dzogchen to please read The Mind Beyond Papers by Elias Capriles as he succinctly and painstakingly details out the differences of views and results. Most gnostic and advaita vedanta "realizations" ...

I wasn't disappointed that they didn't show his teachings. I was upset they didn't do a more immersive look into his pathology and upbringing. He had some killer rants post Antelope for sure though. https://www.amazon.com/Jesus-Crucified-Again-Reagans-America/dp/3893380396/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=15...
