Re: Dzogchen Anniversary Transmission Package For Sale

Lhug-pa, I don't think that a person can ever truly walk away from Dzogchen - at least, the underlying ontological and practical principles of it. We're all called to the practice of recognizing pure consciousness where the knower, knowing and that which is known are all one. This isn't just a prede...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Does it make sense for one who is doing a ngondro with a face-to-face Nyingma lama to join the Dzogchen Community? My intuition tells me that much confusion might result, but I'd like to hear otherwise as I have felt a connection to ChNNR and his teachings. Thank you. Yes, it does make sense - if y...

Infant Ear Infection

Can anyone recommend a holistic remedy or pain reliever for infant ear infections? Four antibiotics later and nothing. Tubes are coming but I don't want to put him on anymore antibiotics until he gets them in. I don't think it is good for anyone to be on antibiotics for this long.

Does anybody know Merigar's actual address? On their website they only list the postal code, city and province. What is the street and building number?

Are the manifestations of energy completely spontaneous?

Does karma condition energy?

Do all things happen for a purpose?

Dzogchen Study

So, I've decided that the best course of action for me is to study the words of ChNNR, who I will take to be my teacher. I have been reading his books such as "Dzogchen The Self Perfected State," "The Crystal," "Song of Vajra," "Guruyoga.". But, what is the best way to study his books and truly reap...

Re: America's Disappearing Post Offices

I live in a small town in NC and our mailman knows us by name - though he rarely chats it up with us. During the holidays, we leave him a little extra cash to help line his pocket and some fresh baked cookies. I'm sure this gives him some motivation to remember our names! Really, though the USPS is ...

Re: Questions about energy

Is this energy "real" - in the sense that, though it is the manifestation of my primordial nature, it has the ability to affect me, help me, harm me? Is there any objectivity to a brick, for instance? Is there any objectivity to a brick hitting me in the head? Or is it all just a manifestation of e...

Re: Questions about energy

Conventionally speaking that is a fair comprehension. But you who would comprehend are a reflection as well, so this comprehension can't be held. If the comprehension is attached-to it gives rise to 'you' and 'other than you', likewise if it is rejected it gives rise to 'you' and 'other than you'. ...
