Chagchen Chöd vs Dzogchen Chöd

For someone who has only a very superficial understanding of Chöd, is it possible to explain is there any difference between Chöd of Machig Labdron and let's say Trhöma Nakmo Chöd of Dudjom Tersar? I'm not familiar with either of these so please bare with me if my question doesn't have much meaning....

Re: Dudjom Tersar information list

anyone got any info about Jampal Rinpoche? He is the son of Thrinley Norbu and a brother of Dzongsar Khyentse. since Dzognsar Khyentse is technically a sakya and received many teachings outside of Dudjom Tersar, i wonder what is the case with Jampal Rinpoche? https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/v/t51....

Re: Decreased interest in Tantric practice

thank you magnus. could you please name its lineage holders? if possible, preferably accessible ones who are more like actual humble practitioners not high lamas or Rinpoches (not to say that high lamas or Rinpoches aren't actual humble practitioners..) also, what about Dudjom Tersar in general and ...

Re: Dudjom Tröma Nagmo ngondro

none by now, thank you. just to clarfiy, all my confusion stemmed from the book of Pema Rigtsal and his site. yes he mentioned his sublime father and yet he has no separate section about him in his book. instead, he has sections about Choying Khyabdal, Khenchen Dazer, Thrinley Norbu Rinpoche, Dodrub...

Re: Dudjom Tröma Nagmo ngondro

i am not making any claims, i just thought that being Dudjom Tersar lineage holder doesn't mean one has Thröma as his main practice, does it? long hair vow is specifically Thröma vow. so my way of thinking is even if Pema Rigtsal Rinpoche is Dudjom Tersar lineage holder and coming from Dudjom Töluk ...

Adamantine, thanks for clarification. that's not my idea, i've been told that those whose heart practice is Thröma Nakmo has 3 vows: body - not cutting your hair, action - always remain natural and never correct the way you display yourself, mind - remain in true nature of mind. these are not exact ...

Adamantine, yes, please do. about Pema Rigtsal my confusion is Thröma Nakmo practitioners has 3 vows of natural abiding from what i understand, one of them is not cutting hair. and Pema Rigtsal is a bhiksu whose 2 root gurus are from Longchen Nyigthig (Khenchen Dazer and Choying Khyab...

I remember ChNN said more than once that some people just collect empowerments as a blessings, and that that was not a good thing; that you should only receive teachings if you intend to practice them!

Re: Requesting Teachings
