Re: Welcome to Kvmilek

- You do Guru Yoga from A-Tri Dzogchen ? Yup, Rinpoche gave me lung to Ngondro from his book 'Opening the door to Bon' which is A-Tri lineage. When Rinpoche gave me lung I felt so strong warm coming into my throat chakra. I don't know if I am Bonpo now, or not, but I will follow his teachings :nama...

Rather descriptions regarding the visions during a retreat in the dark, in chapter six. Thanks Kalden, yeah, I have read the book that you mention and it is impr...

Re: The myth of the Cosmic Egg

Tashi delek, The great difference between Bön and Tibetan Budhism would be how they see/vision, about the origin of their Cosmos etc. But the question arises why they are so different and so "real" for Bönpos and Buddhists. Guess there are also many similarities like the 6 realms etc., but their ori...

Re: Welcome to Kvmilek

Truly, I didn't know Rinpoche before. I collected empowerments from Karma and Drikung Kagyu but I did not practice. I work with energy as an bioenergy or pranic healer and I wanted something that would strengthen my healing practice and clean my energy body. This year I found that there will be tum...

Re: Om Ma Tri Mu Ye Sa Le Du

Re: The Six Lamps

Lhasa, That if you have not received teachings like Thogal etc. then you should not read about it. Even if another teacher says it's OK to read it, to you. That does mean that if a Dzogchen Master as the Bön Yongdzin Rinpoche, Tenzin Namdak la, publishes a book like: Heartdrops of Dharmakaya, that ...
