Re: Dharmakaya aspect?

Tashi delek! Garchen Rinpoche have repeatedly mentioned that Tara is the Nirmanakaya aspect and Vajrayogini is the Sambhogakaya aspect. So, who is the Dharmakaya aspect? It seems to me that I've missed something, because I've never heard the name of the third, apart from '....and the Dharmakaya asp...

Re: Buddhism, and theistic religions.

You can ask Buddhas and Bodhisattvas for help, they have been ‘there’ for me. The downside of relying exclusively on devotion devoid of wisdom is that once your devotion lessens (as it is bound to) you fall further. Anyway, IME most Tibetan practitioners believe that Buddha’s and Bodhisattvas are a...

Re: Buddhism, and theistic religions.

Hello, I've probably asked this question or one similar to it, but didn't explain myself well... So I'll ask in this forum and explain myself a bit better.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Not only can we not only do 5 min a day, we need to practice 24/7, that is the main point. In one book Rinpoche said that if one day all his students did nothing but sound “a” and relax, he would be very happy. ...but if that’s all his students ever did he would not be happy with that at all. I fou...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Rinpoche always emphazised quality to be more much more important than quantity, maybe that's why he asked so few time of application (few counts), however, this tells me that it depends more on each one's capacity that in a predeterminated amount of time or repetitions. he said like if one is in p...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

So I’m trying to really apply myself to the Short Tun for now. I bought the book on it and it is quite helpful. It doesn’t say how many mantra repetitions to do during the Anuyoga portion, is there a set number? Rinpoche did, in collective practices, usually a round. In personal or intensive practi...

Re: Nyigma and Kagyu differences

Please could someone tell me, what are the main differences between Nyigma and Kagyu schools of tibetan buddhism? These are institutional designations and the question as it stands is too vague to answer accurately. Nyingma as an institutional "school" can be understood as a collection of lineages,...
