Re: Who is a slanderer of the Lotus Sutra?

one should realize why a Nichiren practitioner views various other practices as no longer a cure for the darkness incurred in the present defiled age. Oh, everyone has explanations like that. From a Dzogchen point of view you are all kidding yourselves. One just learns to accept that there are no a...

Re: question to the Konchog Cidu

Hii, Recently I have got the concise version of Konchog Cidu practice. And at the end of practice there is a dedication before a completion phase. Normally, as I am use to, is that dedication is after compeltion phase. So, my question is, what is the reason for that? Thank you for the answers Gyamt...

Re: question to the Konchog Cidu

My text, which is in Tibetan, does not include dedication verses either. Perhaps there were not dedication verses specific to this liturgy in the original terma, but I do not know for certain. Maybe a more knowledgeable member here can comment on that. What I do is chant a generic 4-line dedication...

It is not relevant to discussions here. Maybe not, but you're a semi-famous person, especially in the Buddhist scene, have written some books, done translations, so if not a "public" person per se, something pretty close where someone might want to write a bio / wikipedia article, amazon.com bio, e...

Okay, cool. So you make a living doing Tibetan medicine practice? Clients/patients see you or is it all online?
Nope, not that either.
Okay, then what is it? Or would you rather not say? :tongue:

Re: Morality of stockholding

How delusional. Really? Explain to us how the Dzogchen view is limited. Well, the term is so watered down now, it has become meaningless, just a way for people to feel trendy and "in" about what they're doing. Next we'll hear about the Dzogchen approach to politics or tap dancing. All hogwash. Howe...

I study Dzogchen. I practice Dzogchen. I translate ancient texts of Dzogchen. I take breaks for food, coffee, wine, sex, sleep, and tv.
How do you make a living? Do you earn income from the translations? Do you make income from teaching? (just curious)
I don't. No. No.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu
