Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Sad to loose Enrico.
I disagreed with his management and political style but for those who liked his style, including ChNNR, he was very good and helpful.
Impermanence is a great teacher. Better to do good now!

Sincere condolences to his family, friends, and Rinpoche.

Re: Semde teachers & teachings

I believe that the formal requirements are to have the oral reading and the oral explanation, before doing any restricted practice. I believe that these permissions are OK in quasi real time over the internet as well as in person. For ChNNr's own Terma it is required to attend a Wang before practici...

Re: Which Yantra Yoga exercise with Lung problems?

The nine purification breathings with or without the visualizations should help with lung. Also the looseners and the eight movements as already mentioned. If you find it helpful - do it again. Never force yourself. The two books last mentioned are enough. Get the videos. You might try to find a YY ...

Re: Critical Mass - The Hundredth Monkey

Is there anything in Dzogchen teachings (or related teachings) suggesting there is a critical mass point where the primordial state would become normalized throughout a community? :namaste: and great postings all.

Re: Kilung Rinpoche - Practical Advice on Dzogchen Meditatio

Came across a good meditation manual from Dza Kilung Rinpoche, a Nyingmapa lama, that was published this year, title "The Relaxed Mind."

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Does anyone have a list of all of ChNNR's retreats? This would be very useful for many, because if you have had a recent transmission for a teaching that was also previously given, then you should be able to order that teaching from ISS / SSI / SSF.
