Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

And even better, Chogyal Namkhai Norbu really is an awakened master. Dear Namdrol, I remember you wrote on E-sangha that although in general you are sceptical about tulku system you think that Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche really is a tulku of Adzom Drukpa. I never had a chance to ask what make you think ...

Re: Phowa with psychological disorder

I have been given instructions to do phowa for myself from a qualified lama. However, I have had a past history of psychosis (3 episodes, each lasting a day long ,of scattered, uncontrollable thoughts). Is it safe for me to pursue phowa practice considering this psychological disorder? Can I still ...

Re: Rolpa energy and deity yoga

Am I understanding it correctly then when we do deity yoga, in Dzogchen terms, we are developing rolpa energy corresponding to that deity? So for example if I do Manjushri practice consistently, I am cultivating the rolpa eenrgy and qualities associated with Manjushri in my continuum more and more ...

Re: Developing Siddhis

Might be, but even if such records you ask are not easy to find -nor likeable to be written, proove, etc.- at all, the fact is that we practitioners have issues on this matter, we like it or not.

Re: What are the General Mahayana Teachings?

For the sake of inter-sectarian harmony and understanding, what are the doctrines, concepts or teachings common to all (or most) sects and schools of Mahayana Buddhism?

Re: Developing Siddhis

by the way, practice 24/7/365 without paying attention to the essence of teaching... i think that doesn't work very well xD If you want to develop siddhis, it works...

Re: Developing Siddhis

Don't forget that one also has to maintain one's samayas. You can practice 24/7/365 for years, but if your samaya is broken or damaged, "the river of siddhi" will not flow. Also, lineage is important, both purity and potency, as well as faith and devotion. Without lineage and faith, it's ...

Re: "Potentiality"

What does ChNN mean when he talks about "potentiality"? It is often used in a way that feels like a pep talk. OTOH, passages like "...the mirror has no idea of checking or accepting the object it is reflecting. The mirror doesn't need any program for that. This is what is called its ...
