Namkha Gyeltsen (1956-2020)

The great Dzogchen practitioner and Chülen (bcud-len) yogi Drubchen Namkha Gyeltsen (b. 1956) passed away on the 4th of February. He was very involved in Chülen practice throughout his life, and spent a very long time in solitude, practicing Dzogchen in retreat. He was mostly associated with Tsedruk...

Re: Bön Deities

Yeh, very sad that others can publish posts of JLA on the web everywhere and others are punished for that behavior. No, I know for sure that JLA has not authorized anybody else to post anything from his material on the web. This is a lie. Many of the posts of JLA, i took from the web and thought th...

Re: Living Longde Teacher

I think Rinpoche still regularly comes to the West, at least Europe. His lineage of Longdé is that of the Kama, his main master was Dudjom Rinpoche. He is also a lineage holder of all cycles of the Rinchen Terdzö and is quite experienced in Black Yangti.

Re: Wilkinson Translations

Coming back on the "lineage of the lambs"... As for lu-gu-rgyud : lu-gu means "lamb", but lu-gu-rgyud means "chain", in the sense of a series of individual links making up a chain. I have never seen lu-gu-rgyud outside Dzogchen texts (I've seen it in literature dealing with gter-ma discovery, see be...

Re: Are Bonpos vegetarian?

Unfortunately I don't know any Dzogchen vegetarian master right now. Lopon Tenzin Namdak has been vegetarian for 15 years or so and he teaches Dzogchen. To come back to Shardza, his position is interesting: he would eat meat but only from animals who accidentally died (falling from a cliff, dying o...

Re: Are Bonpos vegetarian?

Menri Monastery is vegetarian We hosted Menri Ponlob for several retreats here and he ate meet, same thing for his attendants.. whereas Triten Norbutse in Nepal are meat eaters. True for some monks, but not for all. I know many of them who are strict vegetarians. So H.E. the Bön Yongdzin Rinpoche e...

Re: Dakini Script?

I think it is interesting to know that there are published syllabary texts about Khandro scripts, with their various "graphic families" or styles, as well as some transcriptions which make things intelligible. Thus, for instance, some of Tertön Khopung Lodrö Thokme's symbolic scripts are actually no...

Re: Dakini Script?

Ah, thank you. So female tertons = okay, the title "Lingma," not so much. Exactly. But no, instead of "not so much", it should be "not at all". In addition to the female tertons mentioned here by others, there is the famed Jo-mo sman-mo, and closer to us bDe-chen dbang-mo (1868–1927), as well as mo...

Dear Mutsuk, I don't disagree with your points at all. I just wanted to point out that when you write something like the following:...

I am not sure which part of 'take it or leave it' you do not understand. On the contrary, I am sure that what you do not understand is what is kosher and what is not.

Re: Dakini Script?

Aro's lineage (not to be confounded with the Sems-sde lineage from A-ro Ye-shes 'byung-gnas, *9th c.) is fake because it is based on the supposed teachings of Aro Lingma, a woman said to have lived around the late 19th-early 20th century. However, there never was any Aro Lingma, and there was never ...
