Re: Narak Kong Shak Questions

What does it mean to say that the samaya breach can't be repaired? A post in another thread claimed that gurus who break samaya can't repair it and have to go to vajra hell. Is vajra hell where you go to and purify your samaya breach if you don't repair samaya in this lifetime/3 years? Basically ye...

Can one practice Shitro on daily basis mainly for purification effect or is it better to do some traditional Ngondro purification practice with Vajrasattva or Six Lokas for such needs?
ime, shitro is perfect for that purpose.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Because Rinpoche is no longer with us, from who do we get transmissions for the different practices? For example, speaking about myself, I hope to learn Yantra Yoga and I have a textbook on this. However, since Rinpoche is no longer there with us, who do we get the transmission from? To practice th...

Re: Yantra Yoga

I bought the level 1 dvd ages ago, did it a little, quit for a while. I'm back at it but wondering how one uses the Yantras, the dvd is somewhat opaque about that. There is the five yantras - this is what I learned last time, but then there is lungsang and the other sets...does one just pick a sect...

Re: Guru yoga

where you read about that? I'm pretty sure it was in placing buddhahood within reach, but I have read a lot of books containing guru yoga so I could be wrong. But most definitely I have read that making an offering is only going to benefit if that offering has great importance to that individual, a...

Re: Guru yoga

Hi all, I read about guru yoga and I was seeing that you should offer the deity something that means the most to you. Would it work by offering my devotion, my realisation and my merit to the deity, then stay with the notion that all of my devotion, realisation and merit now absorbed into the deity...

Re: Tongue touching palate in Dzogchen?

What is true and not that is a very relative case. But agree Vajrayana Samayas are very hard / tough, that must have a reason. We live in the time of the count down due to climate change. 15 years and humanity is rigorous reduced, very sad. Guess we should give up protective secrecy in these last d...

Re: Change to lay vows - sexual misconduct

I noticed recently, both in my refuge book that I received rom re-newing my vows and also in my on-line research (advice given by Lama Zopa Rinpoche), that there has been an omission in the sexual misconduct vow. One of the vows previously was “ use of the wrong organ “, but there is now no mention...

Re: Tongue touching palate in Dzogchen?

For such an easy to answer question to ask the Master ? This placing of the tongue in the neutral position is what the low level Dzogchenpa must know. Its a basic in the Dzogchen practise. But regarding all the topics here on DW, we could maybe better ask the Master, then we can close DW. :thinking...

Anyone ever had this issue: I paid for my membership with my "local" gar - Tsegyelgar, they never added my name to the IDC or webcast site, so I can't access anything.

Re: Reliance on Rites and Rituals

ime, we are practitioners, meaning that we try to understand, not ritualists clinged to a form.

for example, when the teacher points out we look at what he/she is pointing, not at his/her finger.

Hello. In the Vajra Armor booklet, once one has completed the retreat, one can make the mantra to be worn. It says it has to be placed in a silver or gold gau. Does the gau need to be something like sterling silver, or can alloy electroplated silver/gold be used? I wanted to make a few for my famil...

Ebook, video download...etc
i'm afraid there is no full explanation on such formats. there is a mp4 without full explanation, the practice ebook and tsalung ebook. maybe in the tsalung there is an explanation of the practice, i don't know, if so, then is worth to get all three materials.

There are two types of visualization: 1) The "easy one", when you visualize the Yidam or the syllable in front of you. That's OK. 2) The other one is not that easy - when one must visua...
