Re: What it means to be a ngakpa

I’m no authority on this, but as mentioned earlier, there are some empowerments e.g. Vajrakilaya, Troma Nagmo that during the initiation one is ‘empowered’ to certain implements while being empowered for the practice you’re receiving.

Re: Science Based Mindfulness...

I'm a practioner of the Dudjom Tersar but for my livelihood/job I'm presently writing my Masters Thesis on this topic. Specifically, the way that Mindfulness programs are being introduced to schools.

Re: Chimé Phakmé Nyingthik

It was given only a few months ago in Australia by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. I'm sure there will be a time in the future where this empowerment is given again as its an important treasure of the Khyentse lineage.

Re: Vidyadhara Heruka - Dudjom Lineage Tree

That's the one!

Oh I see, thank you!

Tibetan White Crane Kungfu Origins

Namthar are certainly a source of generating devotion, if not the doctrine itself. Many of the most eminent masters have said that reading namthar is critical to remaining inspired while traversing the path.
