Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Have you checked out SSI USA's shop? I also wanted to practice that, but it was unavailable in SSI UK. Their staff told me it was currently out of print when I contacted them last January. I haven't, actually. Thanks for the link, moonbun! The cover looks different but I'm assuming it's the same bo...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Doesn't know anyone know if the practices in these two Amitayus books are the same? I have transmission for the first one and was wondering if it would be ok to get the second one as it has a detailed commentary by Rinpoche. 1 , 2 I've tried contacting the ShangShung people but have yet to hear back...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Does anyone know if there will be practice day calendars produced this year? I remember them coming out by this time in previous years.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

(1) Guru Nirmanakaya Jnanadakini (the outer practice), which comes in three versions, short, medium and long (described in the GNJ book). (2) Gomadevi, or the Profound Thun of Guru Jnanadakini Gomadevi (the inner practice, previously knows as the Actions of Guru Wisdom Dakini). Again three versions...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Thank you very much for the detailed explanation, my eight-limbed friend. It's much clearer now and helped erase some doubts I had about doing the Jñanadakini practice. And to answer dharmafootsteps' earlier question - the three Jñanadakini mantras allows one to practice the short Gomadevi tun, righ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Cool, thanks for the clarification! This would mean that one would also need the wang to practice Jñanadakini as the three mantras aren't enough, correct? Just to clarify - what's the difference between a donwang and a regular wang? Would the three Jñanadakini mantras that Rinpoche transmitted last ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Just to clarify - what's the difference between a donwang and a regular wang? Would the three Jñanadakini mantras that Rinpoche transmitted last year qualify as a donwang? However, if you have ever received a Jnanadakini or Gomadevi donwang (or the Longsal rot initiation) from Rinpoche, you can prac...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I've been told by someone from the ShangShung site that having received the three Jñanadakini mantras allows one access to Gomadevi practices but I can't be sure to what extent. I'm not sure who will be able to confirm this at this point. Also, the Jñanadakini mantras are similar but not the same as...

The webcast site seems to be down ... Is it working for anyone?
I got a security warning and when I bypassed it, a 404 error.

Is anyone else having terrible connection with the current webcasts?

They are impossible to follow, it stops completely a few seconds after refreshing.
It's quite bad, unfortunately.

Anyone familiar with this practice - I could use some help with the visualisations and mudras. Any advice would be very appreciated.

Re: TIPS? ADVICE? Leaving one sangha, looking for another, interested in Tergar/Mingyur

I think it is a good idea to start with the Joy of Living program (especially level 1 and 2). Mingyur Rinpoche said many times that this is not a course only for beginners. In fact, I can say many years later that practically all those teachings are part of Mahamudra. Basically, you get everything ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Yeah, collective practices are far, far, more a challenge than stand alone practices, because one have to deal with our own ego in it's most. Most practitioners must have experienced this.

It is not necessary to visualise the mantra. This is explained by ChNNR on page 88 (second paragraph) of the Tara practice book.
