Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Oh, I must have misunderstood that bit. What form the the transmission take? I suppose I was expecting a bit of a shout and that.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I don't think he gave Guru Yoga transmission. I thought he said he was going to do it tomorrow. I don't think there was enough time today. Good teaching, though. Lots on where he got the teaching from (Adzom Drukpa's son) and the circumstances around that, explaining union and liberation, especially...

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

I was wondering, are the webcasts stored on the DC websites, and if so, do members have access to past webcasts? ie. if my log in ID is not sent before Friday, will I still be able to watch all the webcasts once my ID has been sent?

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

It would be kind of funny if I'd been phoning and e-mailing to be able to access a webcast that won't actually happen, but I think it's in Argentina (GMT-3) 3.2.12 - 7.2.12 i just got a reply from the US site so sent the form and payment there. he did say that getting the log in details might take a...

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

I just e-mailed Italy, the US and the UK membership person again, but from what she told me yesterday and what people have said on here, it's a bit unlikely. I also noticed that US membership costs loads more than membership here. Not sure why. More facilities?

Anyway, fingers crossed...

Just hit a hitch. I need to download and print the registration form then fax it to them, persumably so they have my signature. But I don't have a fax machine. erm... I'll try it at work.

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

I know. I attended some teachings in London a couple of years ago, and have watched quite a few open webcasts, and met up with local members for the transmission. but joining just for one closed webcast when i really want teachings on another terma may not be the best reason to join.

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

Thanks, I'll give it a go. I'm thinking I've just left it too late. I was undecided whether to join and the DC membership system seems to have decided for me, which may not be a bad thing.

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

Oh, well according to the UK website, cheque and standing order are the only two ways to pay. Maybe other places differ? I was hoping for a totally automated system so I could join last minute, maybe like Dharmasun or something.

Transmission on the Internet

Given the technologically advanced methods of giving transmissions and teaching, the DC membership system seems antiquated. Apparently, I have to pay by cheque or set up a standing order. I don't have a cheque book any more. Who does? Why they can't use Papal or credit card payments is beyond me. An...

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

I'm very interested in watching the webcasts for this retreat. I might join the Dzogchen Community for this purpose. I have attended teachings and watched webcasts before and had some contact with DC members in my area. I'm a little undecided as to whether it is okay to join just for one teaching. H...

Re: 1000 to 1500 Chinese spies might be at Bodhgaya Kalacakra

As I understand it, the PRC government sees HH Dalai Lama as a purely political figure, and a splittist, at that. Therefore, they would be interested in any "Chinese citizen", Tibetan or Han, visiting this "wolf in monk's robes." As for the point that many Chinese practice Tibetan Buddhism, here is ...
