TENGRIISM

Aside from Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tengriism" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) is there a good text explaining this religion, which was in close contact with Vajrayana in Mongolia? Here's what is reputed to be an image of Tengri: http://static.newworldencyclopedia.org/thumb/...

Re: Trouble with the forum?

I think it was simply overloaded and needed more capacity.

It's running fine for me, but I wouldn't be surprised if we get a few outages during any upgrade. :)

Re: Dzogchen Lineages Dzogchen Rinpoche & Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche

Try requesting that your local libraries, both public and University, purchase books. I've gotten my local libraries to purchase books by Tulku Thondup, Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche, Longchen Rabjam, and many other books. A University library card may cost money per-...

Re: Dzogchen Lineages Dzogchen Rinpoche & Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche

Not to be funny or anything, but you are willing to pay $9 to get access to illegally shared material? Why not set aside those $9 in order to save up for the actual book itself, for example? Not sure if it is illegal or not, but I'll check. The book itself seems to be around $60 and I have other pr...

You can find another two also - scribd.
Thanks - yes, I found them but thought Premium membership was required. At $9 for a day pass I guess I should. :)

Blue Garuda, If you're interested in lineages, issues such as what is a terma and a terton, and also what is the Nyingma school, its traditions, and so on, the following books are very good to get, and one book - the big red - is a must get: His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche - The Nyingma School of Tibe...

Re: Dzogchen Lineages Dzogchen Rinpoche & Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche

Just another caveat: Those charts come from a "suspect" teacher/lineage, in the first place, if I'm not mistaken. Though those portions you've posted her are pretty accurate, based on my limited knowledge, I'd be careful with anything from that site. There's a difference between "institutional affi...

Re: Dzogchen Rinpoche & Dzogchen Lineages

Nice chart, though it has some minor flaws - I am not sure that Shantarakshita was a student of Guru Padmasambhava and Longchenpa certainly did not compile Longchen Nyingthig. But anyways, Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche is a student of Changchub Dorje, who was a student of Adzom Drukpa and Nyala Pema Dudul...

hi blue :smile:
Thanks :)

He should be on the chart, but I guess it depends on the emphasis given by whoever composed it.

Re: Dzogchen Rinpoche & Dzogchen Lineages

It's an incarnation lineage of the head of the Dzogchen Monastery, starting with Dzogchen Pema Rigdzin, in the 17th century. Sönam Yes, that's in his biog I quoted, but doesn't tell me how he relates to all the other Dzogchen teachers in TB or if 'the' Dozgchen lineage stands apart from the schools...

Re: Dzogchen Rinpoche & Dzogchen Lineages

It mentions 'THE' Dzogchen lineage. Of course Dzogchen monastery holds one of the dzogchen lineages, mainly Longchen Nyingthig and Jater. Yeah and they also practice termas of Dodrubchen Rinpoche and I gues also Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje, plus Longchenpa´s teachings. The monastery is called Dzogchen ...

Dzogchen Lineages Dzogchen Rinpoche & Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche

I have received teachings and empowerments from these two masters but can't sort out lineages in my poor brain. Dzogchen Rinpoche's website describes him like this: ' 'His Eminence the 7th Dzogchen Rinpoche, Jigme Losel Wangpo His Eminence the 7th Dzogchen Rinpoche, Jigme Losel Wangpo, is one of the...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Do groups cater for vegetarians at Ganapuja or is meat compulsory? (I know for Tsog in vajrayana that tsampa is an alternative.) I've never experienced a vegetarian ganapuja in the DC. I have seen meals catered to food allergies though. If one is a recovering alcoholic then maybe it would be best n...

My first Ganapuja tonight - very excited! Could I have some pointers on etiquette, please? I don't want to do anything silly... Arrive a little early and ask someone if they can go through the practice quickly with you so you have a small idea of what's happening. Its a good icebreaker :) Don't wor...
