Re: Lazy people should just give up, right?

This is very true Kevin ... us, Dzogchen Practitioners we are already dealing with the result, therefore what ever we do, practice not practice or something else, anyway it's about the result ... we cannot get out of that, therefore why to take care about? Yeah do whatever you want, doesn't matter ...

Re: Rang gzhan gnyis su byung

Sorry mate just one, if I may - I'd greatly appreciate if you could stop using blue text color, many times it's just impossible to read. Thanks.

Other than that I have no idea :)

Re: DO and Emptiness

But that does not mean there are no processes, because if there were no processes, the basis could never arise from the basis, and so on. Ok however typically a process is never outside cause and effect. Does then you mean basis arise out of basis by the law of causality? Also if basis arise out of...

Norbu Rinpoche states in his Questions and Answers on the Great Perfection: That view established intellectually we need to establish consciously in dependence upon one’s capacity of knowledge and on convention. The way of establishing that is the system of Prasanga Madhyamaka commented upon by the...

Re: DO and Emptiness

Hmmmm, Namrdol ofen says emptiness in Madhyamaka and Dzogchen has the same meaning, however currently I'm reading "Undbounded Wholeness" by Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and there's a part called "Core Philosophical Issues" where it's stated "Dzogchen and Madhyamaka speak of emptiness, they differ i...

Re: Lazy people should just give up, right?

Interestingly RInpoche was saying about lazyines in Dzochnen today :) So He said if one doesn't feel need to do tantric practice then should not, and that's okay but has to stay not distracted, and should not force oneself to do practices, as long as remembers to stay not distracted. And that's beca...

Re: Lazy people should just give up, right?

Really just plain sick of practices that take forever to achieve results. Completion of Tara practice is only a million mantras! No problem! Give me a break. Kabballist path-working was almost instantaneous in comparison, sorry to say. Yeah so you like, give up and in 10 years you'll realize - "dam...

Ye. I was looking at that. One needs much karma yoga for this and a quite stability in the state of contemplation - and I'm too new to the community yet. But perchaps in the future, who knows ;)

Re: DO and Emptiness

Okay, but then, in causality, a certain effect can not be own cause, is that correct? You were saying basis arises from (or out of) basis so that would mean it is own cause? Also, typically what is illusion is "within" causes and conditions. In Dzogchen it is often said about out true condition, or ...

Thanks Namdrol.

I heard basis is empty, however it is also said it is beyond causes and conditions, beyond time and space. What causality you mean by "causality in the basis"?

Re: DO and Emptiness

Emptiness is the same thing in Dzogchen and Madhyamaka. Even rigpa is completely empty. But in Dzogchen we do not say that emptiness is dependent origination because of the way the term dependent orgination is used in Dzogchen. Not because Nāgārjuna is wrong. Thanks. You answered Rigpa is not depen...

Not from a Dzogchen pov.
If Rigpa is not dependently originated then what is emptiness in Dzogchen (since emptiness then can't be equated with DO, right)?

Re: Buddhahood in Chan

The ancient Chan masters are making the argument than the realization of emptiness is sufficient and there is not much reason to place a lot of emphasis on the path of cultivation (bhumis 1-10). Once in possession of the Gnosis of the path, that is the main point, and that is Buddhahood. Nope, that...
