Re: Dzogchen & Vipashyana on thoughts

It appears that Jax's mistaken assertions about Dzogchen have caught the eye of Lama Tony Duff (see Lama Tony Duff's Fb Post below), which I am glad to see because I think Lama Tony's constructive criticism of Jax's errors may help some people from getting lost in confusion.

Well it was some time ago since you did sent Tenzin Wangyal a message about that Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche has said that only about 1% of disciples will recognize actual rigpa.
