Hi guys,

I am currently a blue gakyil of Wangdenling. Unfortunately we do not plan to have a webcast, we do not have techincal capabilities to ensure that the webcast runs in a good quality and uninterrupted. If anything changes I will inform you ahead of time.
Thanks for letting us know.

Re: Autonomous "kriyas" recognized in Tibetan Buddhism

I don't know if it'll be possible to get a question to him directly online, but probably a uniquely qualified person to answer this question would be Sridhar Rana Rinpoche: https://www.byomakusuma.org/

Re: Seriously approaching Semde on ones own

I would recommend working with semdzins in regular sessions throughout the day. Along with regular sessions in the morning and evening. Not that it is an bad advice but the semdzins belong to the Mengakde. /magnus Typically yes. They can indeed be very powerful methods for working with semde an lon...

I would suggest seeing if there's a SMS 1+ instructor who's willing to give some advice/answer questions that may come up.

Just saw that Tulku Dakpa will be offering the lung for the Dreltig Chenmo again (plus lung for Nyida Khajor Gyud), this time in Slovakia from 20.-22.09.19, apparently by invitation of the Dzogchen Community: https://www.dzogchen.sk/podujatie/greatcommentary/?instance_id=1964001 Not sure if they ar...

Re: Troma nagmo and rainbow body

Perhaps, I should have posted the link which is below. I don't think Alan Wallace is saying practicing shamatha and letting the view arise but he is saying that trechok IS shamatha combined with the view. Of course, it is not ordinary shamatha that is focusing on an object or conceptual thought. Ma...

Re: Opening oneself to others

I think, you know the answer, as expressed in your last paragraph. Maybe this can be handled by going back to the basics, examining "who" is being defensive, "who" is shutting things off. I would say, spend some time on that. Really spend a week focused on that and see what happens. In my own exper...

Opening oneself to others

Any thoughts on practices to help make oneself more open and warm hearted to others, generally or specifically. I'd like to be more open generally, but I notice myself closing off in relation to my parents in particular, shutting down, being unreasonably irritated etc. The other place I've noticed i...

Re: The nature of European monarchies

Remember when I posted the photo earlier of the queen and asked people if they knew where she got the gold piano from? Nobody offered an answer so I will give it here: It was looted from Saddam Hussein's palace in Iraq by the English military and gifted to the royal family. That is how the English ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

What are the implications of just receiving a mantra from a practice, but not the full lung. Rinpoche seemed to quite often transmit a few mantras independently from the full practice. in particular, this time last year at the Dzamling Gar Ati Yoga retreat. Rinpoche gave transmitted the three main J...

How long were the stream? I didn't watch last 15 minutes. Can I continue this seminar? I can't pay for recordings.
You should email them with your situation. I'm sure you'll be allowed to register anyway. Only the first 3 days are going to be streamed to those who aren't registered.

Re: Learning Tibetan

Esukhia's good, but very different. They're less structured, and mainly focused on spoken Tibetan, at least initially. Their approach is basically learn by doing i.e. trying to speak with a language partner. Very good if that's what your after. The RYI courses are the other end of the spectrum. Thei...
