Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Oh darn, my first call is on the day of my foe. :rolling: I have an 'Auspicious' planet and an 'Excellent' element of the day as well, so hopefully it will cancel out, along with the help of bad to good day mantra and prayers. Thank you for the advice, I will get both the books. I have been looking ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I have the Alendar app on my phone, but haven't read the book "The Four Methods of Development" yet. I need to pick good dates for some job interviews coming up, when looking at days, are the day's combinations more important, or the personal aspects? The day's combinations are emphasized in the ap...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Argh, even my edit wasn't fast enough, thank you for the swift responses. I will do what you said, just to be clear, is the invocation in the app the prayer? I am not aware of a mantra. I do remember receiving the lung several times, but I never really caught what Rinpoche said.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Thank you for correcting my assumption, are the personal aspects all equally important? I spotted a couple of days with great looking general aspects with a mixture of good and bad personal aspects, would it be better to look for days with only good personal aspects, even if it meant having bad gene...

Re: Garchen Rinpoche Ganges Mahamudra live stream

What is the practice commitment if I watch the livestream of the Mahamudra instructions? Would there be a pointing out or direct introduction to the nature of mind that would result in samaya? That's not necessarily a deal breaker for me, my first foray into Tibetan Buddhism was through watching rep...

If it is certain one is going to Vajra Hell, does one display any mental or physical symptoms?

Typically, a scarlet vajra will appear somewhere on one's body.
I am not sure if this is serious or not. Is this for real?

Re: Dharmata teachings.

I am reading through Embracing Each Moment(about halfway through it), and I have No Self, No Problem but haven't started with it yet. Embracing Each Moment does not seem to have any specific focus, at least as far as I can see, and covers the entire path. It is not a meditation manual(although you m...

Are aversion and anger the same thing?

I was contemplating about the suffering in the hot hell realms and mostly everywhere I see, anger or hatred is said to be the cause for birth in these realms. I have also seen aversion being used when describing feelings towards other people, rather than anger. I have a chronic condition and it is v...

Re: Great Transference question

Is this correct? https://soonyata.home.xs4all.nl/sorubasamadhi.htm Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was a Dzogchen practitioner?
