Re: How do we know our practice is working?

Outer and inner phenomena are interdependent so IMO when you're inwardly in order your outer life is in order too (or your outer life can be "chaotic" but your perception/experience of it is not so). The rest can be inferred from that.

He did, hence my small confusion :)

I really liked his translators too, especially the woman during the first couple of days
Well, lung by itself is not same as getting teaching on the text too, things might not be so clear, but if you got the lung you can read the text.

Re: Learning Dzogchen online

Hi all, in the event that anyone watched all of the Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche talks like I did (live), wow, what a teaching! We only made it about halfway through the text - is that typical in a transmission like this one? Should that be considered the full transmission of the text? There are some prac...

Re: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

On day 2 session2 in the morning, CNR gave a lung but I can't make out the name of the text in the video. He was reading from a red softcover book. Anyone know? It is the main text. The mp3 download for day 7 part 1 is the only one not working. Has anyone downloaded it? Tried, not working. Also num...

It sounds like it will continue. But maybe it won't be webcasted from now on. Does anyone know?

Re: Learning Dzogchen online

How strange. One doesn't even have to have taken refuge to take an empowerment, since refuge is given in the course of the empowerment. Were those registrations for Nyingma empowerments? I can't remember for sure now (this was years back) but I don't think they were Nyingma. I've also seen some emp...

I think on the first day Rinpoche said he will give the lung for Calling The Lama From Afar, has he already given it and I missed it? I checked the part I know 100% sure that I missed and it doesn't seem like he did during that time.
He didn't give it yet as far as i know.
Thanks.

Re: Learning Dzogchen online

I'm not totally sure everyone agrees with that. :smile: I personally do, but at the first teaching I ever attended I had a talk with one of the students of the center where the teaching was and she was adamant you need to go through the formal ritual to have taken refuge. She was a Gelug student. I...

Re: Learning Dzogchen online

Since refuge is from the shravakayana, it does not require transmission, or even a formal ceremony. As soon as you give birth to it in your mindstream, it counts. Doing a formal ceremony with a master in person is a nice auspicious circumstance, but doesn't make one's refuge more legitimate than wh...

Re: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

I'm registered for the event and have been following along. Have they been streaming the afternoon sessions by Lama Tenzin Sangpo and Dr. Thomas? I never seem to catch them as a live stream but they're up there as teaching recordings at the end of the day. Curious if I'm somehow missing the stream ...

Re: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

You should email them with your situation. I'm sure you'll be allowed to register anyway. Only the first 3 days are going to be streamed to those who aren't registered. I can take only first 2 days. Did he give lung already? I missed ending today. He gave 2 lungs but not for the main text. Just ema...

Re: The Dangers of Diluted Buddhism

Quite an interesting article from Lama Jampa Thaye. What do you think about his warning? https://tricycle.org/trikedaily/diluted-buddhism/?utm_source=social&utm_medium=fb Isn't he saying beware of false Buddhism without saying what true Buddhism is? Although I see this is an excerpt, perhaps it wou...

Re: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

All registrants are required to take the teachings in sequential order, starting from the beginning of the seminar. Is recordings enough? The first 3 days will be live-streamed and free, via Facebook and simultaneously on DharmaSun.org. They might live-stream the whole seminar. I would contact them...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I don't think it is shaming, if someone thinks there is a problem it is good to say it rather than letting others continue doing something that may be wrong. The problem is that in such cases it is not very clear how much or what kind of information is ok. It's not that difficult: Information from ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

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 thun. According to Rinpoche, while it is ideal to do it collectively, it can be done by oneself. Really? Yes. Page 194 of the Teachi...
