Also, in terms of LOTR's terma in particular, since you feel strongly about their continuity, maybe you're the lineage holder. You just need to ramp up your game a bit. :smile:
A bit???!!! :tongue:

Re: New terma and their continuation outside of a lineage.

I don't understand the title. There is no continuation without a lineage. But by received empowerments and teachings you are already part of the lineage. Of course the lineage will die with the last generation if there is no one qualified in that generation after the originator has passed. For exam...

That is a different problem, one the community in the west will in time resolve. We already know that in China there is a Khenpo appointed to continue CHNN's lineage there.

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

Unfortunately, I cannot be responsible for my empowerment. No, but you are responsible for what you do with what you have received. Sure, but I am not just talking about me, I am also talking about people who have/will come to the practices after the teacher's parinirvana, they are going to need em...

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

Some people might need more assistance. But in fact ChNN also made a vast library of all of his secondary practices, including both his own termas and other lineage practices such as Green Tara, with complete explanations. Which is great, but it is not enough. These are oral lineages. There nneed t...

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

I use to feel the need to be attached at the hip to the Guru. Now I don't. Good on you! But I did not say anything about being attached at the hip. My teacher lives 5,432km away and I see him once a year for a week. It is one thing to do practices that are taught as part of an established lineage a...

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

The MahaGuru CHNNR gave unsurpassed upadesha . That's like receiving the ticket to the last station. Choo choo. If only it were so simple. My experience is that one needs a teacher on hand for when various issues come up and to explain details as they arise. I have been on trains where in the middl...

Re: If the bad times are coming, what to do?

He then added something that made my ears pick up. He said everyone should say daily Protectors prayers, whether that be an all-inclusive Protectors offering such as Damchen Kyi-tor or just a simple ser-kyem . This was clearly something on His mind, and I don't think I've heard that advice before a...

Re: Left Buddhism

In september i was going threw a rough time, stopped practicing and dropped my refuge. I was going threw a massive internal struggle.
