Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

When I heard about Dzogchen, I mistakenly understood it to be "easier," but as it turns out, you pretty much have to keep most of the same vows as the rest plus some additional discipline required to sort out what's different and how in your mind. All in all, it's been rough. You are in the right d...

It is beneficial to practise this during the New Moon day according to the Tibetan calendar. :namaste:

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

P.S.: all of you who do ChNN's Mandarava practice, do you buy chudlen pills or compile your own ingredients or what? If you buy them, where from? From Shang Shung Institute empowered by Rinpoche himself. It is very difficult to make your own. But take it easy, it is better one step after another. T...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

In my experience, there are plenty of people in DC who have received transmission and are doing practices without really knowing what they're doing. There's no other way to start, really, because access to Rinpoche is limited. When he teaches on the webcast, I'm pretty sure he teaches the same thin...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I did Mandarava following the webcast when ChNN was sick in roughly the same way I used to perform other group rituals: just trying to chant along without knowing what I'm doing really. I think doing a condensed Mandarava practice the best we can based on our knowledge and ability is probably fine....

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I was going to ask about a condensed Mandarava practice as well. Please let us know. It is not difficult to find the text of the practice. It is already in the "Restricted File Archive" area of the Webcast and you can download it for free: http://www.shangshunginstitute.net/webcast/files-restricted...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Hey all, I really want to learn how to do the Mandarava and chudlen practice. Can anyone provide a link to the most comprehensive resource for that in the SSI bookstore? Also, I know there are medium and long versions of this sadhana available, but I remember Rinpoche saying something about a short...

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

drōlöt Elongate the first ō to double the length. So it is not "dro wo" as pronounced in some other traditions. ChNN clearly explained that in this case, the 'wo' (བོ) is merely elongating the o sound and the 'w' part is elided in pronunciation. Second o has an umlaut, this is a feature of Tibetan ...

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

I lost count how many times rinpoche said that if we are dzogchen practitioners we should do guru yoga and be in a state of guru yoga as much as posible. First of all, we have to be sure that we understand well what is really Guru Yoga! For this reason, I suggest the book "Guru Yoga" by ChNN, Shang...

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

On either Saturday or Sunday, he said that it was important to have good visualization; this is "quality" practice (his words). Without good visualization, it becomes "quantity." Question: before this, I've always heard that we shouldn't work too hard on visualization in Dzogchen practices because ...

Hello everybody! :group: I am here because of the post in Norbunet... :smile: Yes, we all had poor connection yesterday but this does not happen often lately - at least in audio which is usually very stable. It reminded me the first years of webcast streaming - 2006. We were never sure if we are go...
