Unfortunately for you my masters will probably not be around anymore, at least not in their current form.
I think that you are deluding yourself.

Re: Signs from the Dakinis?

What are possible so-called "signs from the dakinis", which seem to indicate significant training progress in Mahamudra (and most likely also in Dzogchen)? Are there quotes in Mahamudra or Dzogchen literature which describe those? 'At this stage the meditator will acquire some power of supernormal ...

Re: Signs from the Dakinis?

I remember now who this user is. Previous nickname was ZOOM, and claimed to know more about Dzogchen than anybody on this planet. Of course, never having received any kind of empowerment or direct introduction... So far, no one of the official dzogchen students of official and qualified dzogchen te...

Re: Signs from the Dakinis?

If you think that spreading the dharma in this realm is a farce, then yes. First and foremost his life's jouney was to figure out a way to get enlightened himself, then he instructed students. So why did he need to get enlightened if he already was enlightened before he even started his journey? I'...

"Total buddhahood" is achieved while being alive through "the great transfer". So you achieve it right here and don't need to go to any other realm to get it.

Re: Signs from the Dakinis?

Shakyamuni was already a buddha long before he manifested on earth. So all his life's journey to become enlightened was just a farce then? Don't be unresponsive then, problem solved. Not being able to read and to understand quotes correctly seems pretty unresponsive to me. Your luck that this isn't...

Re: Signs from the Dakinis?

Also, a qualified teacher instructing a student doesn't automatically make the student worthy.

Re: Signs from the Dakinis?

If you don't have samaya, in other words, if you haven't received empowerment from a qualified teacher, and if you haven't received Mahamudra from a qualified teacher, then none of this is your business, actually. What qualified teacher exactly allowed and empowered Buddha to practice and to become...

I wasn't asking for anyone to break vows.
There are surely descriptions of "signs of the dakinis" in non-restricted mahamudra literature.

You will find the answers you seek by asking your teacher and consulting the specific instruction manuals for which you have received the teachings and transmissions.

Re: Signs from the Dakinis?

Oh, I understood the quote. It's not too difficult to follow. Once you attain the realization of greater one taste and purify your tainted samaya, I suppose you will know. That is not an answer to my question. I asked for possible examples of signs of dakinis (described in literature). The quote al...

Even though you have attained the realization of greater One Taste, if you fail to have some degree of clairvoyance and receive signs from the dakinis , you must be tainted by damaged samayas.

The Great Transfer Experience

It's no secret that the Star Wars mythology, including the Jedi achieving a body of light and their physical bodies disappearing at death, was inspired by the Dzogchen system. So I asked myself if there is a hollywood movie which probably depicts specifically the Dzogchen achievement of The Great Tr...
