Re: Eckart Tolle - master of the park bench

One doesn't have to identify with a dzogchen lineage or any other lineage to abide in the natural state. Great. Personally though, I scrutinize people that claim they are in that state, and to me he seems to be trying awfully hard. So if the argument is that one should simply follow him because you...

Re: Eckart Tolle - master of the park bench

Simply by listening and seeing that he speaks spontaneously and a lot of the time not using terminology from traditions.

Re: Eckart Tolle - master of the park bench

Eckhart Tolle has stated(as far as i am aware) when he discovered his true nature he had no words to describe it until he started ready about spirituality so then he started to borrow terminology from various sources,the realization came first.That's why he quote's so many different sources believi...

Re: Eckart Tolle - master of the park bench

I have mixed feelings on him. Mainly in the sense that he presents his "realizations" as something that were just his personal experience, which coincidentally is basically Advaita and Mahayana Buddhism, with some Christian mysticism and Kabbalah sounding stuff thrown in for good measure. It gives ...

Re: Eckart Tolle - master of the park bench

I feel Eckhart Tolle is quite genuine in his level of realization and i certainly don't think he is a fraud and just out to get people's money.He apparently sat on a park bench for years in bliss and didn't teach for a long time.He was also teaching a long time before Opera got her claws into him(ma...

Re: blocking realization

duffster1 i was listening to the teaching, i heard also what you are talking about, but he didnt mention what the blockage was/is. but i would think that there are many many blockages and its matter of realization and merit and wisdom that you transform into such advanced being that you manifest ra...

Re: blocking realization

Most people, including dzogchen practitioners, probably don't achieve rainbow body, right? Seems like they were all blocked, then. Yes true.but i'm under the impression that all blockages can be removed in this lifetime,so what could block without a possibility of unblocking in this lifetime? i don...

Re: blocking realization

that is why i presented the question that does anyone know what the blockage is he was talking about. that would prove most likely to be useful information. He didn't elaborate that's why i was wondering what he meant by saying it,i don't have the exact quote but he said something along the lines o...

My OP was that Rinpoche said there was blockage that couldn't be removed in this lifetime,not find the blockage and remove it.

I heard Chogyal Namkhai Noru Rinpoche say at the webcast today that everyone has the potential to realize rainbow body and then he said that one can block that potential and then one has no possibility of realizing it in this life?Is it possible to block one's possibility of having realization for t...

Re: Is the Dharmakaya the source?

Dharmakāya is emptiness, definitely not a source. The five lights are originally pure, which means they're primordially unborn and free from extremes. Duffster, regarding your question; 'spirituality' is a fairly broad term and could represent various systems, religions and traditions, all having d...

I heard Chogyal Namkhai Norbu say in the webcast today that if one talks about rigpa to non practitioners one is breaking samaya.Im just trying to understand what he meant.If one tells a loved one or a friend what they are practicing and goes into a little detail wouldn't this be harmless.

Rinpoche is not talking about illusory body in this context. He really means that there are thirteen other planets where Dzogchen is present being taught.
Hi,so he IS saying Dzogchen is being practiced on other planets?
