Re: Dzogchen in English

My lama's advice is not to race through a Dzogchen text, but read a small amount a day and really digest it. That is very true. For a structural break down I think ChNN's Cryastal & the Way of Light, though not a huge book, is unmatched in it's complete scope & modern approach to subdivisions of ar...

Re: Is Dzogchen really beyond cause and effect?

I wish for all diversity to remain not be evolved out and exteminated as major extremist right wingers said and in effect desired. The records are there and there will be more blogs. Also we still have the gurus as ultimate arbiter who love the Dalai lama and karmapa tulku lineages and will not allo...

Re: Is Dzogchen really beyond cause and effect?

Username, I think you're mistaking the "path(s) of Dzogchen" for the "State of Dzogchen," which is what Namdrol is talking about. No you are engaing in damage limitation by falsifying the subject in support of your friend again. The Urgyen Karmapa which I have faith in as a genuine tulku of the las...

Re: Is Dzogchen really beyond cause and effect?

Okay, then they should all be in perfect agreement in their teachings. Dzogchen masters are, when it comes to discussing Dzogchen. So if it was Dzongsar Khyentse tulku & Khenpo Choga as stated here we see the above statement by Malcom is false as there are disagreements since Dzongsar Khyentse Rinp...

Re: More Trungpa talk

I don't mind the criticisms by followers (who never met him) of other lamas who had a history with Trungpa, I actually admire the extent of their loyalty to their gurus, which however should not sanction attacking a major contemporary Terton. Many of the critics who did meet Trungpa though seem to h...

Re: Is Dzogchen really beyond cause and effect?

We are taught if they have experienced the genuine state then yes but there is no way to put that into words or concepts to debate. Hence personal experience of the knowledge. But that is Dzogchen, no? The rest is just dew and cobwebs. Yes but they tell us we are ignorantly trapped in causality & t...

Re: Is Dzogchen really beyond cause and effect?

We know there are differences of opinion on ngondro, etc. You are wrong on both counts. Are there differing opinions on rigpa (or whatever the translation du jour is - maybe I've just answered the question...)?

Re: Is Dzogchen really beyond cause and effect?

It is wrong to state all Dzogchen masters are united when discussing Dzogchen. ChNN often tells the story of when he was staying with Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche in Nepal and three Dozgchen masters, couple of Khenpos and a tulku, suddenly appeared to debate him in the presence of TUR on why ChNN is wrong...

Re: Contemporary tertons of Eastern Tibet

Shakyamuni said as you bite into gold check my teachings for yourself first without taking my word for it. In Vajrayana taking a root guru is much more serious. Also as the metaphor of a snake in the bamboo shows, one either goes up fast or down in Vajrayana. This is no joke or trivial matter as som...

Re: Contemporary tertons of Eastern Tibet

One must avoid false tertons who are reincarnated long term enemies of Padmasambhava and Yeshe Tsogyal who: 1- Tell some people they are not tertons. But tell others they are tertons as we see by themselves openly as well as their aides. 2- Make up funny combination deities and fake tantric figures ...
