Re: Drikung/Longchen Nyingtik connection?

Hello all, I am one of H.E. Garchen Rinpoche's many many loving devoted disciples and have mostly spent time in the Drikung tradition. However, I've just been assigned the Longchen Nyingtik Ngondro and after much research, am noticing a certain palpable connection between the traditions. I've even ...

Re: Search for a Qualified Teacher in North Carolina

What I am reading about the Great Perfection path calls to me. As I read I am often strongly reminded of the importance, for many good reasons, of working with an authentic and qualified teacher. The follow-up volume to "Outer and Inner Preliminaries", which I am now reading, is "restricted" and ca...

Re: The Ease of Receiving Empowerments

Why is it so easy to receive empowerments when the risk is so high? It is rather easy to receive an empowerment that some center have requested in order to get some income. It is not so easy to request an empowerment yourself for an practice that you actually trust as a complete path to liberation ...

Re: Vajrayana purification split from "Second hand mandala offering set"

Stuff like this put me off of Vajrayana for a long time. I mean, I had no interest in becoming a Medieval Tibetan and still have no interest. I suppose it is fine for those who want it, but for those who don't, the Vajrayana tent is a big one. There are very old school lamas with jokes that are at ...

Re: Practices for recognition at the end of Guru Yoga book

They are similar to pointing out instructions I've seen and gotten from other teachers using shamatha object, etc. It's just weird because generally introduction would (well, would have, makes me sad thinking about it) come from Rinpoche, and these seem to be a practice. So maybe you are might and ...

Is there a place where one can purchase the Drikung version of Calling the Guru from Afar? Thank you. In both places I have mentioned above. But it is the same prayer in all traditions as it is made by rime master. Not really, there are many prayers called "Calling the Guru from Afar". /magnus
