Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Maybe this is not the ideal place to put this, but I was hesitant to make a new thread... I was contemplating having "missed out" on becoming one of ChNN's students in this life, and I was moved to compose this poem to him, in apology: Homage to the Vajra Lord, Unerring King of compassionate Dharma...

Vajra Guru Mantra Mudras

I have never before seen mudras for the vajra Guru mantra. Is this more commonplace then I realize or something unique to this Lama?

Re: Nupchen Sangye Yeshe

The only info I can find is all from the same source but on different pages. Here is the info from Khenchen Lama's site. I'm just trying to confirm this information if anybody else has references or knowledge.

Okay. I finally got how to do the harmonizing thread. I had to redo the rhombi so it won't look as weird or wonky with the harmonizing thread in place. :lol:
Do you use round wooden dowel rods? Do you fasten them together with something other than yarn? Do you use yarn or thread?

Despair not; Rinpoche can still help us. Do guru yoga and connect with him. He recently gave me a simple teaching in a dream.

Re: Hot Sauces

They are not hot, but I love chili guajillo. I made a cooked salsa yesterday with tomatoes, dried chili guajillo, dried chili de arbol (hot), garlic, onion, cumin, salt & black pepper.

Re: Hot Sauces

The best hot sauces are home-made, but for store bought, I like yucateca green sauce, though they have a red XXX Mayan sauce that is really hot. I also like sirachi sauce on asian food and Valentino on my Mexican snacks. For sliced jicama with lime I like ground chili pequin.

Re: What are the Tibetan "Fearful Dharma Protectors"?

Yamantaka means "destroyer of Yama." Wrathfull deities are not necessarily angry; they represent movement and action. Dharma protectors also often take on the appearance of the specific beings that they tame, so although they may look "evil," this is just appearance .

I came from a Theravada background but found that Tibetan Buddhism (particularly Dzogchen) was more suitable for me. I particularly enjoy the opportunity to participate by webcast in my community, since I live far from sangha.

Re: Differences between sects

Some of the main differences in the explanations that the four traditions give of the teachings come from their ways of defining and using technical terms, as well as from their presenting the Dharma from different points of view. For instance, the pair “permanent/impermanent” can mean either stati...
