Re: Finding a qualified Teacher

Being unimpeded by the element is indeed one of the signs. Also, Kunzang Dechen Lingpa finished the four visions but his body was still here. Even if one is on that level I think it doesn't necessarily mean that one will manifest it.

Re: Interesting excerpt from the (Hindu) Mahanirvana Tantra

Not really. We aren't all part of a tathagatagarbha. I think your are being overly literal in the interpretation of the passage. The Tathagatagarbha is also referred to as the Dharmadhatu in some traditions, where the Dharmadhatu is the ground/space of all existence. If somebody views the passage a...

Re: Interesting excerpt from the (Hindu) Mahanirvana Tantra

(iii) As the Sun (though one and the same) when reflected in different platters of water appears to be many, so by illusion the one soul appears to be many in the different bodies in which it abides (132).[/i] That last one is a killer. Dharmadhatu anyone? Or maybe Tathagatagarbha? Not really. We a...

Re: Recovering from Trauma

I don't think trauma is something we ever really completely lose, we can minimize the symptoms of trauma-induced PTSD and such, but being "free" of trauma and resulting neuroses is really an unrealistic expectation prior to a serious level of realization, and probably a counterproductive one. I thi...

Re: Recovering from Trauma

To Echo and add a few things. First; Try and stay sober for a while. I had 'episodes' induced by weed and delusions when I was younger and a few others seemed to come out of nowhere later in my life, but undoubedtly due to my lifestyle and the conditioning of my nervous system. The truth is that if...

Re: Kagyu Monlam live on FB- who is this lama?

You know, for such a big public event, they're really not screwing around with the teachings. I think of how many biggish public events I've been to where the teachers were nice but the teachings were just pablum. The crowd shots are amazing. And worldwide, fewer than 200 people watching the FB, ju...

I do not think it allows you to practice any Gomadevi sadhana.
I don't think so either since they are different practices.

Why do you think it's covered and discovered over and over?

Just to clarify - what's the difference between a donwang and a regular wang? Would the three Jñanadakini mantras that Rinpoche transmitted last year qualify as a donwang?
Donwang means meaning empowerment, it is more essential than a regular wang. No they wouldn't, that was just the lung.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Welcome :-) . To be exact, my situation is that I have received the Jnanadakini donwang twice, and the lung for the long Nirmanakaya Jnanadakini sadhana. I have also got the lung for short and medium Gomadevi (not long, though), and Buddha knows which Thugthig. In September 2017 I described my situ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

However, if you have ever received a Jnanadakini or Gomadevi donwang (or the Longsal rot initiation) from Rinpoche, you can practice any of the Longsal Jnanadakini, Gomadevi and Guhyajnana sadhanas, no matter what length, whether you have received the appropriate lung or not. I wrote about it to Ri...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Yeah Gomadevi and Jnanadakini (Thugthig) are not the same practice. Rinpoche gave the Thugthig mantra. In the retreats I attended Rinpoche never gave all the Gomadevi mantras, just the first one. When you're practicing by yourself I don't think you can do the other two mantras. However, if you have...
