Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

Total success. ChNN always gave transmissions exactly as he got them. So if you found a contradiction in Adzom’s writings, now Is the time to put up or shut up. Why? The onus is on you because you raised the issue. Everyone else trusts their teacher. as I really can't be arsed to find where he says...

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

According to the late SHENPHEN DAWA RINPOCHE, HH Dudjom Rinoche's son by his second wife, Drollo and Putri Regpung both share Namchag Putri as the source for their further Dzogchen instructions. If you don't believe him, or you doubt my testimony about what he said to me personally, what else can I...

Re: Democrats are compulsive self mutilators

I don't think you understand how good cop, bad cop works. It means the cops collude to put on a show that makes you think one is good and the other is bad. But really they are tricking you and both work for the same boss. The good cop is only pretending to be your friend. This is very lazy thinking.

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

I agree that the dzogchen teachings in the DT Drolo cycle are limited (to one short text - http://www.lotsawahouse.org/tibetan-masters/dudjom-rinpoche/light-of-primordial-wisdom ) and that would entail looking elsewhere for more extensive Dzogchen teaching in the terma tradition, but there is no re...

I think we should treat the claim with care.
I don't. He is my guru. he was a terton. YMMV.

He maintained the same point of view from 1992 when I first heard this, to the only time he ever taught Drollo, a few years ago.

Palden Gyatso (17th century) writes in his History of Kilaya : At the cave of the Glorious Tiger's Lair in Paro, he engaged in the practice of Vajrakīlaya and Vajra Wrath (rdo rje khro bo) rode the tiger and liberated all māras and samaya breakers with the magic power of piercing and conquering the...

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

This is not something I've ever heard from any tersar lama, and I've specifically asked after Malcolm made that claim. Whereas it is true that Dudjom Tersar Drolo does not have extensive dzogchen teachings, and, if you want to practice dzogchen you might have to take teachings from Namchak Putri or...

There is no mention at all of a tigress in the Konchog Chidu Drollo sadhana or empowerment, much less the tigress being identified as Tsogyal.

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

What is the problem with the tigress being the Bon deity? You are the one perceiving it as a humiliation, that does not mean it is humiliating in the first place. In other explanations it is his own consort. It is not a servant or something like that. Guess you miss the core of the discussion here....

Not sure I follow. So because Drolo is Vajra Khroda Lokottara this connects him with Vajrakilaya because of རྡོ་རྗེ་ཁྲོ་བོས་ཞེ་སྡང་གཅོད?
Could you give me a page reference for the Paro Taktsang bit?
Yes.

Dudom Rinpoche's collected works, vol 15; ppg. 115-116, beginning on the bottom of 115.

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

= Regarding another characteristic that you mention, the tigress is most often described as pregnant rather than "in heat." This is not correct, actually Kunzang Dechen Lingpa, a terton and another direct disciple of Dudjom Rinpoche made it very clear that not only was the tigress in heat, it was i...

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

all DT lamas I've ever asked reject the idea that Drolo is "considered something like the essence of Kilaya." Some dedicated DT Phurba and Drolo practitioners I've asked have no idea what Malcolm was actually going on about. According to the DT Drollo chronicle, while at Paro Taktsang, Guru Rinpoch...

Re: Independent investigation confirms “physical, sexual, emotional abuse” by Sogyal Rinpoche

I have long been wondering to what degree tantric deities are or are not comparable with Jungian archetypes. Saying that they are "same" is obviously not correct. Saying they are completely different somehow does not seem right neither to me. Deity yogas are, fundamentally speaking, dramatized narr...

Yeah. Sure there are not as many Freudian practitioners of psychoanalysis as there used to be (though they are not as extinct as one might think either) but the fundamentals of psychoanalysis are as current as ever. Psychoanalysis is bollocks. It is not scientific, it is based on the fantasies of o...

Its not the road that's bad... its the dudes who come down that road... which brings me back to - I don't think we want China dominating international affairs.

I frankly see no compelling arguments that negate Hayek's basic thesis here, despite whatever faults his other work may bear. re: " The Road to Serfdom" - It's dated (it's a complete reaction to the rise of fascism in the 20 and 30's) and both Hayek's assumptions and conclusions are false.
