Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

Not according to anything I've ever seen. I think Samten Lingpa was clear the tigress (definitely female not male, unlike Bon sky god) is Tashi Chidren, one of the five main consorts of Guru Rinpoche. Do have a textual source for that claim? It's explained in the text TEACHINGS ON THE PRACTICE OF D...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Jamyang Norbu reminisces about ChNN: Sometime in the mid-eighties Namkhai Norbu visited my uncle Rakra Trulku at the Pestalozzi Children’s Village in Switzerland. During their after-dinner conversation Namkhai Norbu asked my uncle if he would like to experience a “mirror divination” (tib. tra-pab)....

Is Tulka Yeshe still involved in the DC? Someone here posted that he wasn't.

The Tulku Yeshi mentioned here is not Yeshi Namkhai, son of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu, but this teacher: https://herukainstitute.org/about/

Anyone know the mantra or dharani of Amoghasiddhi? I am trying to tame my jealousy and envy among school rivals, but Akshobhya is the closest for quelling hatred.
Try Lojong and Bodhicitta.

Without Bodhicitta, mantras are useless anyways.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Since questioning SS Publications's wisdom is so heinous I'll leave it to those who clearly know much more about such things: The request for silence refers only to posting memorials and so on of CHNN's passing. It has nothing to do with the normal day to day business of the gars. They are still ru...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

Footnote 580 in chapter 40 (The Praise) says that, “The innumerable sentient beings of the six realms of samsara are innate seeds within one’s heart center.” Hmm, that is very interesting. I would like to understand this better. Is this literal or figurative or something else all together? Nice tea...

Well, you should have received the corresponding empowerment, i.e., want to read about the inner workings of Highest Yoga Tantra / Inner Tantra? Then you should have received empowerment corresponding to that.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

You are right that the names are written on the thangka. However, the problem is that the image above is of the copy print of the original thangka. And looking at mine close up, it's clear that the names are unintelligible. Thus even a higher resolution image of the copy print won't help. The bette...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Is there's a key to all of the masters in the thanka? Not that I am aware of. But in general, for students of Rinpoche, it would be a good idea to get "The Temple of the Great Contemplation - The Gönpa of Merigar". This is a very nice book, as it outlines all the details of the Merigar gönpa with g...

I do not know who the original artist is, but Samtengar may know, as I believe it was they who brought it with them to Dzamling Gar, where it was presented. So contact them and ask.

I believe it was the Mandarava drubchen retreat early this year. He was unable to complete the whole retreat due to poor health. Exactly. The last retreat the Maestro completed was the December/January one, also in Tenerife. Before that there was something in April 2017, I think, in Spain, and earl...
