Re: Backwards Ati

Again, Trungpa Rinpoche gave his students TGS transmission when we entered into the vajrayāna, and therefore his students would usually be on an emotional roller coaster throughout the four ngöndro practices. I think that’s because of the disruptive quality of the TGS transmission itself Guru yoga ...

Re: Question on Duality/Other

All of the universe and beings, samsara and nirvana have one basis. The two paths and two results are the enchantments of knowledge (rig pa) and ignorance (ma rig pa)... The basis being discussed, as clarified here by Jigme Lingpa, is not the original, generic basis (aka the unfabricated mind essen...

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

Thanks, I was wondering if this was something that was due to personal insight or whether it was some sort of 'formally acknowledged' thing by an 'authority'. It has to do with the first Dudjom, Duddul Dorje, a famous terton in his own right, who had a vision of Padmasambhava in which Padmasambhava...

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

How do I even obtain that Ngondro? I don't remember if I received the lung for it either. CHNN gave this lung frequently. Just look up retreats you gave attended on line, and track down the lung list. I am 100 precent certain you will discover you have received this transmission. Anyway, there is n...

Re: Achi Chökyi Drolma as Padmasambhava’s consort

Seems to me to be a past life reference. Hi folks, There’s an Achi sadhana From Achi Peibum, and composed by Achi where she says, she’s the Karmamudra of Padmasambhava and the most tenacious one. The sadhana contains the Harinisa mantra, which is connected with the dakini sadhanas of Padmasambhava. ...

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

The short Dudjom Tersar ngon-dro is wonderful. Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche was Guru Rinpoche's regent in this time. (some say Guru Rinpoche Himself.) There have been many great Lamas in the last 100 years, but Dudjom Rinpoche is most definitely one of the very greatest. So if you have any inclination of...

Re: Question on Duality/Other

Thank you Malcolm, that is indeed very helpful. Speaking colloquially (due to my small understanding), would it be then safe to say that each consciousness has as its base its "own" rigpa? Would rigpa be a manifestation arising from the dharmakaya? Thank you for these clarifications - this is indee...

Re: Question on Duality/Other

I am still working my way through the beginning of the book. At the beginning, it is explained how Samantabhadra is before all activity in consciousness, effectively once awareness arises and recognizes itself. Samantabhadra is thus the same in all mindstreams. This is also an error of interpretati...

Re: Question on Duality/Other

Hi everyone, if I am correct in understanding the teachings I have heard and books I have studied, rigpa is the single ground awareness, the dharmakaya. This is an incorrect understanding. There is no such thing as a "single ground awareness." Our consciousness is a manifestation of this ground awa...

Re: New terma and their continuation outside of a lineage.

i heard a similar insinuation from a lotsawa friend: "idc havn't produced any realized practitioner/instructor in the entire world". This person must have amazing clairvoyance to be so confident of their opinion; however, what it actually shows is that they know nothing at all about Dzogchen teachi...

BTW best method to repair samaya is completion stage.
Are you talking about the dissolution stage during deity yoga or the physical practices like the six yogas of Naropa?
The former.

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

Unfortunately, I cannot be responsible for my empowerment. Greg, we are talking about people who have already received transmission from ChNN. Not new people who never met him. That is a different problem, one the community in the west will in time resolve. We already know that in China there is a ...

Re: empowerment for Dudjom Tersar Ngondro

Some people might need more assistance. But in fact ChNN also made a vast library of all of his secondary practices, including both his own termas and other lineage practices such as Green Tara, with complete explanations. Which is great, but it is not enough. Yes, it is, by ChNN's own design. He h...

Reciting Vajrasattva long mantra 21 times a day prevents degeneration.
Does reciting Vajrasattva short mantra 108 times a day prevent degeneration as well?
Better to do the long one.

Is any transmission or empowerment necessary to recite the long Vajrasattva mantra?
Generally, everyone who has received an anuttarayoga empowerment has the transmission.

There are, but honestly the impact is somewhat limited when all you can do is email someone, valuable as that can be at times. There are no gars near me or anything, no DC practitioners to meet up with. I personally don't want to attempt something like the Tuns simply from a book. The DC practices ...
