Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Hello! People who have active Dzogchen Community membership, can you please log in on the webcast page and go to the replay tab (replay and not the Rinpoche's Teachings with Odser Chenma files) and check how the page behaves? Is it possible for you to play any of the Mandarava or Chod with Adriano ...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

One NY doctor is saying Covid19 is not a pneumonia but instead resembles high-altitude sickness and patients are possibly being harmed instead of helped by being put on ventilators with settings for treating pneumonia.

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

(Apologies if this has already been mentioned, haven't read every post) China has a 21 million drop in cell phone users. Some of this is from migrant workers heading back to their home country; but certainly not all of the 21 million. The Chinese use their cell phones for everything, including maki...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Just anecdotal - it sounds like people in medical fields who are on the front lines are catching it still... that sounds like a function of exposure. It also sounds like the more you're exposed to it, the more likely you get it bad. Individual cases are effected by the same exponential growth as co...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Nemo, you might be right though not quite in the way you thought... I've read two posts today that mention that people in Wuhan/Hubei don't believe only 2500 of them died. By their estimates based on how much their crematoriums are working right now (and the amount of urns bought/used) the real dea...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

The mortality rate seems to depend heavily on the ability of the healthcare system to, well, care. The Koreans experienced a case-based mortality rate of 0.1%. Why? Because they tested the most intensively and treated aggressively. Italy reports a case-based mortality rate of about 8%, because test...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Too bad there aren't enough tests to find out who is right. If they are right in 3 months this is over and containment is a waste of time I don’t buy it. At yesterday’s White House briefing they said New York had a 25% positive test return, but the national average is 8%. If there’s widespread infe...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

I don't buy it either. If most in Italy had it, the whole country would be seeing the situation of Northern Italy. The UK should've been seeing too. In the beginning of March one of WHO doctors that went to China said that there was no proof at all that the cases they found were just the tip of iceb...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Norwegian government have been in talks with parliament basically every day, all parties are working together (in and out of government) to come up with the best possible plan to handle this disaster. And first government suggested a crisis law to be installed for 1 year. Next it was argued that it...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

There are also other very real dangers that come with more power given to the government. Over here the measures taken by the governement (that just came into power) in the past two weeks are eerily similar to a coup and a sliding into dictatorship. In the best case scenario they will have "only" s...

Right, Norwegian. Then why are they, including Trump, trying to shut down people’s livelihood so aggressively? “Conspiracy theorist” as I may be; I do sometimes wonder if the ‘sheople’ need to be herded at times.... What’s going on here though? What's going on? It's about slowing down the infection...

They are using the transmission text for Garab Dorje, which is a bit weird.

IIRC we've done it like that before, when Rinpoche was ill I think.
Using the transmission text?

Yeah, I think so. Perhaps the part with the introduction was left out.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

My guess is that it will be a group practice for those who have already received the transmission. There will likely be someone leading the practice, but not actually giving transmission (?)

Re: Physiological symptoms as a fruition of practice?

Today I learned there's a difference between straightline and straight line. Learned of the former first and was shocked that Tingdzin would say that and then learned of the second one which made more sense.

Re: Selling the dharma

Yes, which is why one should be prepared to give away your family members to anyone who wants them, like the Bodhisattva Viśvaṃtara handing over his wife and children to become servants of a brahmin. I find this soooo funny, really. I mean how would this even work these days? Or are wife and childr...
