Re: Saving all beings, ultimate or conventional goal?

So, saving all beings from suffering is the goal of practicing. :smile: However, is this the goal in an ultimate sense? Or, just a conventional or relative one? If it is an ultimate goal then why does that even need to be done to begin with? Given that all things, including ignorant perceptions, an...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Anyone has a virtual copy of the jnanadakini book? There doesnt seem to be a ebook version to buy and its impossible for me to get something from another country to my place. I do not think there is one. Which would you need? The Nirmanakaya Jnanadakini bok, or the two Jnanadakini Tuktik-related on...

Same here.
Added mine. Wish they recorded the Friday session, I will certainly miss the first hour of it. They ought to have scheduled it for weekend.
Did they send a link or something to join?

Re: Pure view without being Panglossian.

All the Tantras I’m familiar with maintain the normal, common perception of phenomena is mistaken. The actual mode of being, the way things actually are, is as a Buddha Realm. They don’t say “just the good parts”. it is something you actually see, not only have understanding of. i suspect this is t...

Re: Enlightenment in a Pure Land

Maybe oftopic questions: is there another pure realm where beings can go or be sent regardless their sins? is there something in this sense similar to Buddha Amitabha's land?

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Not really, ChNNR was a fully qualified lama and tulku when he left Tibet. No doubt did his teachers encourage him to teach. Even the 16th Karmapa begged him to teach in the west. That's over stating it. What happened was that a Karma Kagyu Lama who was living in Italy and had a center passed away,...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

that, and not putting enphasis on boddhicita isn't traditional at all. You think he didn’t emphasize Bodhicitta? I don’t think you could find fifteen minutes of his teaching where he didn’t talk about absolute Bodhicitta And what he meant by "being present" includes relative Bodhicitta, as he expli...

bah, in any case, point is that he wasn't traditional. He was very traditional. Just not a tradition that is common in mainstream Nyingma lineages these days. They typically follow the scheme of preliminaries, three roots, etc. That wasn’t always how Dzogchen was presented, and indeed isn’t always ...

No one has suggested anything of the sort. The thing is, we have experienced, learned, qualified and properly trained practitioners (Malcolm being one of them).
