Re: sems and rigpa

"Sems" will self-liberate. Buddhas don't have "sems". /magnus That so? Do you have any sources for this? Yes, it is clear in all Dzogchen teachings. The Pearl Garland Tantra: Sem is the ground of all habitual tendencies, The defilement of beings. Sem perceives the perceived objects And is therefore...

Re: sems and rigpa

I'm asking what sems "becomes" when there is recognition. It's a Dzogchen specific question. I mean in Tantra we say that the purified aggregates becomes the wisdoms etc., I am wondering if this applies to sems at all, or if the correct answer in Dzogchen terms is that sems is "pure from the beginn...

Different classes of mantras

In some texts there are several different mantras per deity: Bija mantra Mula (or "moola") mantra Hridaya mantra Karma mantra Bija mantra is, obviously, the seed syllable mantra. Karma mantra is, obviously, the action mantra. However, I could never really find a proper explanation what the differenc...

Re: Daniel P Brown - Pointing Out Way?

Just to mention for whoever might be interested: Mr. Brown's health is not the best. It is uncertain how long he will be able to continue to teach. So, if anyone is inclined to show up at his retreats, better to do so sooner rather than later.

Re: Bon Dzogchen

Same applies for many meditational deities. That is what i doubt greatly. Its common in Vajrayana to take over Hindu Gods etc. and here there is a common source possible. Brahma and Shiva would be converted to Vajrayana, well it will be then like that, no objections. Bön does not have any Hindu God...

Re: Bon Dzogchen

That bon and buddhism both have masters displaying signs of rainbow body merely means that each are capable of highest attainments. That's all. Agree, it is like that and the reason would be that both Traditions have a common source, which is "lost" somehow. Same applies for many meditational deiti...
