Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

in the great book "The Mirror", it is said: "it is this decisive knowing, this pure presence of the true original condition, that is called nirvana." so i thought the primordial state is beyond both samsara and nirvana. here it sounds otherwise. thoughts? In a sense, samsara and nirvāna both appear...

Re: Another day in America

If directly addressing guns is too hard, then one option is to go back to approaching guns as a health issue. This would establish the "compelling government interest" in regulating guns, giving clearance from the 2nd amendment. Might even make some executive actions possible that would bypass cong...

Re: Who can read Dzogchen books?

Who can read Dzogchen books? From Wisdom Publications? Who is allowed to read them? "books", and "them" is very vague. Not all Dzogchen books are similar. It depends on content. But in general, if you want to read about Dzogchen if it isn't a basic introduction, but something from a tantra or a ter...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

When you do ganapuja by yourself do you need to prepare a seperate plate for three roots or do we just first offer our plate? DS Doing ganapuja completely alone is no good. If done with webcast then you ofc prepare separate plate for three roots also a glass. But alone it is better to do medium thu...

What are the requirements to be able to read the Precious Vase? I want to use it to get into the preliminaries in a deeper sense.

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

Footnote 580 in chapter 40 (The Praise) says that, “The innumerable sentient beings of the six realms of samsara are innate seeds within one’s heart center.” Hmm, that is very interesting. I would like to understand this better. Is this literal or figurative or something else all together? Nice tea...
