Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Would it be improper to add the Dogpa from the Short Tun to the Guru Yoga of the White A (w/ Garap Dorje) after the last Song of the Vajra and before the Dedication? thanx! in my experience it is not improper, and you need to be applying a wrathful yidam while doing dogpa. but don't do it that way ...

Re: At what point Bodhisattvas enter the pure land

at the point when emanations can be disposed (?) afaik, single emanation of the boddhisattva occurs after becoming a buddha, at his mahaparinirvana, and in the mean time emanations come and go so practically a 10th ground boddhi buddy can be in almost every corner and pure realm gathering merits and...

Re: Is there time for bodhisattvas?

i'm afraid that time is another product of logic. i couldn't give scripture quotations because this is just a conclusion, everything points that way. i'm afraid "ultimate" realization, if there is such thing, is beyond time also, and time occurs into the boundaries of the relative mind. time it's a ...

Question: future lives

Hello,

Anyone knows if, not having realization nor gone to a pure land, and having respected and practiced correctly the methods given by one's own Guru, one could find this method in future lives?. Do we have any certainty that tantric method is not avalable for us only in this lifetime?

cheers!

Dharma is not what shrvakas and pratyekas says is dharma... even the abhidharma is not the word of Shakyamunni Buddha, but theirs! originaly it was a how-to only.
