Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I was thinking more of situations where ChNN is unable to lead a retreat and webcast and a substitute found to avoid cancellation. I was wondering who is qualified to give DI, lungs etc. i don't know. i hope Yeshe Namkhai; i don't know him but i foresee that he doesn't want to deal with the stamped...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Im sure there are numerous students of ChNN that are at least capable. My confidence in there being an accepted successor for the DC is very low however. I am wondering if Adriano Clemente might fit this role. He worked closely with Rinpoche for so many years and Rinpoche trusts that he has a very ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

So...by the schedule i'm assuming no WWT. I'm wondering if by now there is no senior DC practitioner able to give DI etc. And if so........would people accept it. I do hope we in the dc succed in this, so many total realized beings appears from the west and the transmission keep living in a continu...

Re: Dream of being Hayagriva

As a side-note, I am under the impression that it is not very good to talk about such dreams in public, but I could be wrong. yeah, according to ChNN and DKR at least, one should keep experiences on deities to oneself, this are secret stuff pointed to you. going around telling them is cause for the...

Re: Tibetan language question

It depends on your goals, as I’m sure you know that colloquial Tibetan is very different from classical Tibetan. If your goal is to read Dharma texts, classical is what you should learn. If your goal is to converse with a Tibetan (ie work as a translator) then start with colloquial. I have heard di...

Re: mental habits

my 2 cents: no need to actively stop 'em. watch your mind enough and you'll see and appreciate how they, like everything else, self-arise and self-dissolve. put it differently, rest in the natural state (or make that the mental habit?! :) & the rest kind of takes care of itself otherwise, I suppose...

mental habits

mental habit of discourse lies on mental habit of grasping to mental formation, mental habit of grasping on mental formations lies in mental habit of the division of a self and an other, but mental habit of division of a self and an other is a subtle mental formation not an intrinsic quality. how su...

Re: What's the point of abusive gurus?

Question: We must practice in accordance with the guru’s words. Then what if we rely on the gurus and they lead us to an incorrect path or employ us in activities that are contrary to the three vows? Should we do what they say? Reply: With respect to this, Gunaprabha’s Sutra on the Discipline state...

Re: What's the point of abusive gurus?

I am a little surprised at this discussion and several others recently. Vajrayana (including Dzogchen) is not really about finding a nice teacher that can teach you nice things, right? It is about recognising the natural state, decide on that and gain full realisation in the natural self liberation...

Re: proclaiming awakening

Thinking about this last night, I remembered a fragment of the Diamond Sutra which was easy to find. In Hui-Neng’s commentary of the Diamond Sutra, he introduces section 7, Realization without attainment is called true realization; teaching without preaching is called true teaching. Therefore the s...

Re: proclaiming awakening

I don’t doubt that the Dalai Lama and some other living Buddhist teachers in all traditions are enlightened, but why the reluctance to say so? The Buddha wasn’t shy about it. We entered the path presumably because we had faith that the Buddha was actually enlightened. I don’t think the five monks w...

Haha I guess that's why I commented here, I thought quite a few people were affiliated with CNN in this forum.

Re: Guru Rinpoche and Lineages

Do all current Dzogchen lineages include Guru Rinpoche? Bon lineages I would imagine don’t necessarily include him. I’ve never encountered a Buddhist Dzogchen lineage that doesn’t have him in there in some way. bon is connected with prahevajra without GP? i mean, to be part of the transmission
