Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

The local gar can sometimes make up t...

There are three ways to do a deity retreat, the best is to practice until you achieve a sign; the medium is doing some practice for a set period. The inferior is counting. Most people are inferior.

Re: Concentration camps for Tibetans

Running concentration camps is expensive. With a faltering world economy and Vietnam, Cambodia, etc competing with cheaper labour what do you do? :shrug: Slavery! Retrain those pesky Kazakhs and Uyghurs and put them to work. Sounds like Tibet is getting off easy so far. http://www.visiontimes.com/?...

Re: Dharma name

Give him normal name. If he wants a dharma name he will take a refuge. As Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche said it is better to be normal. But it’s a really good name. I get it. :D I love my dharma name too. But it was given to me by my teacher as she felt fitted me. I suggest making his name Johnny Walker (...

Re: Covering Framed Images

If you are a bit crafty, you could buy some nice fabric hem it, and attach velcro or hooks to fasten one end behind the top of frame and have cloth drape over front.

Re: I am sick of dealing with guests in my home ...

Another option is to be grateful that you have family who wants to visit you. I do not, and the one's who did are gone now. Life is short.

Perhaps you could talk with them and set up a certain day for visits so that you could both enjoy their company and also have your personal time.
