Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

On p. 91 in The 21 Semdzins of Dzogchen Upadesha and p. 71 of the Song of the Vajra there is a practice called Semdzin Yugu that is attributed to Shri Singha. Does anyone have anymore background information on this practice?

Maybe if someone here knows how to do it they could start a gofundme thingy specifically to raise money for the best equipment etc to make the webcasts even better?

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I've recently worked my way through The Precious Vase and ChNN's oral commentary on Longchenpa's Precious Ship . I am about halfway through The Song of the Vajra: An Oral Commentary. I might also reread The Crystal and the Way of Light after that. Are there topics not addressed in those works that ...

Re: ChNN WEBCAST TOMORROW

Does anyone know the latest from the webcast team about what can be done to improve streaming /connection etc? Ongoing problems for a while it seems so it would be good to know if there is at least a loose plan for improving the services in the near future. Agreed..especially considering the upcomi...

Re: I've been so wrong/pure lands

If youre interested in Dzogchen but dont know a lot about it try reading the Crystal and the Way of Light. If after reading that you feel that its right for you, watch one of his webcasts and get transmission....then practice, practice, practice. The next up coming transmission is: http://melong.com...

Re: I've been so wrong/pure lands

Buddhadharma is not a "one-size-fits-all" that is found in many other religious traditions. There are many Paths within Buddhadharma leading ultimately to the same place due to the fact that there are so many different types of people with different karmic makeups. The key is to find which one is t...

Here, you mean: https://www.amazon.com/Times-Jamyang-Khyentse-Ch%C3%B6kyi-Lodr%C3%B6/dp/1611803772#reader_1611803772 ? Yeah, pg. 32 onwards until end. When you compare with ChNN's account, seems to be a huge difference of opinion about Chago Tobden's devotion to Heka Lingpa. That's not the only dif...

Re: Chan practioner thinking about visiting a nyingma center

If you want a really good overview you could check out Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche's book Gates to Buddhist Practice. He and his book are about as "Nyingma" as they come. Will help you to understand what you are seeing and hearing when you go there. https://www.amazon.com/Gates-Buddhist-Practice-Essentia...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

As usual, I'm amazed at the clarity of his transmission. Beyond anything. He truly is my Guru in that sense. And yet, as usual, I'm unsure how to continue in the Dzogchen Community. I practice the Short Tun, have met the small local sangha, and I know the SMS program exists. But really, what is the...

Re: The DJKR Topic

I don't quite understand how some lineages of tantric yoga can be continued if the lamas who are not monks are prohibited from having sex (with possibly also a female in the same sect?). Do people expect these lamas to miraculously just “get it” and educate us without going through a householder’s ...

TCM is based predominantly on Daoist philosophy while TM is based on Buddhist and has more similarities with ayurvedic medicine.
