Re: Illusion in Dzogchen

The eight similes of illusion are found in Sutra through Dzogchen although the technical terminology and path is obviously different. Mode of appearance vs mode of being. Check the Prajnaparamita sutras and any that mention illusion, dependent origination, reflection of a moon in a pool of water et...

Re: Bön Cosmology/creation story

Thanks KY! How is this story integrated with Dzogchen cosmology and view, if at all? Guess Dzogchen is free of dualisms and emptiness encompasses all, Nature is every where and creates everything. We know the 5 elements emanating in many forms, Wisdoms, elements, etc. Guess the creation needs mind ...

Re: Bön Cosmology/creation story

I've heard a bit about it, with Sangpo Bumtri etc., my question is how it works with the creation of Samsara, and what Sangpo Bumtri's relation is with Samsara, if any, since he is one of the Four Transcendent Lords, but apparently also a creator god? I also have yet to see any actual text on the s...

Re: THE CANON OF THE BÖN

This is fantastic, but Bonpos (and Chospas) should remain aware that in the future, a ready supply of electricity may not be as available as it is now, and should also print as many low-tech copies for distribution as possible. SD cards maybe ? Have my whole library on a 64 GB SD card, used 40%. Wi...

Illusion in Dzogchen

Tashi delek,

Am interested about:

- Your reasoning and your vision about illusion.
- In how far do you see illusion as "realistic"?

Best wishes

Re: A better world

A better world with a better health.

Garlic is a very good remedy against many diseases.
But like always what is good for some one is bad for another one and vice versa.
To cook with garlic can be general seen as healthy.
