Re: Signing Off

What ??? :(

Indeed, as far as the Tibetan Buddhism section goes, this is an earthquake...

I am quite disheartened by this news.

Thank you so much Malcolm for all you have done.

Re: Relationship between Dzogchen tantras and Nyingthiks

It takes approximately 5 days for the lung of the 17 tantras. Any senior Nyingma Lama can grant this lung. Probably the best people to receive it from at present are Dzongsar Khyentse, Namkhai Nyingpo Rinpoche or Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche (who is actually a Kagyu master). This is not to exclude the ma...

Re: Relationship between Dzogchen tantras and Nyingthiks

The Lung for the 17 tantras (as well as the Vima and Khandro Nyinthigs) still exists and is still transmitted. Hi Malcolm, Any specific holder of that lineage that comes to mind ? Do you know how long it would approximately take for such a Lung to be transmitted ? A few days ? A week ? More ? May b...

Are the 17 Tantras contained within the volumes of the Nyingtik Yabzhi?
AFAIK the 17 Tantras are not in the Nyingtik Yabzhi but in the Nyingma Gyübum.

Re: Are there any overlapping sutras in the Kangyur and Pali Canon

Unfortunately only a few. That's a pity...
I remember reading Malcolm recently saying that a royal decree (by Relpachen I think...) actually limited the amount of Hinayana sutras transalted.

Could there be a confusion between "recognizing" and what Javier calls "rediscovering" ? @Javier: The basis being precisely what was not known before, by definition, it cannot be re-discovered...  However, once the basis has been recognized there are of course, for most of us, distractions, and we m...

Re: How is enlightenment achieved in madhamaka and tiantai?

Could you please elaborate a bit on this distinction? The abhidharma approach is to break down conventional phenomena to ultimate constituents, i.e. dharmas, so there is no person, there are only the five aggregates, and those five are impermanent, etc. The madhyamaka approach is to break phenomena...

Madhyamaka in the early times differed from the Abhidharma approach in that it took a different view to vipasyana. Later Madhyamaka is another matter.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Maybe this is a stupid question, but if one has the freedom and means to travel to Merigar (not to say that it would be easy, far from it) and is a student of ChNN, should it be endeavored at this time or is it better to practice at home?
