Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

Cone, Since I been practicing Yidam only in the Nyingma context I am unsure about what the normal Kagyu approach is. But in the Nyingma, at least in many terma texts, the whole development stage arise from the three samadhis where the first, the samadhi of suchness, more or less is the natural state...

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

Great thread, thanks to all. Somewhat off topic, but perhaps not....I recall a student of my Guru asking when we were going to "get to the Mahamudra practice" --this was in the context of a closed "druppa/Jinsek" yidam retreat. I'm not even going to give you the Guru's answer, I think you all know ...

Re: RuShi ?

What is "keeping the lineage "? What do you say when you say it ? To me it sounds like some authoritarian & army-like system. In a Sravakayana sutra Shakyamuni says that he is not the leader of the Sangha, Sangha consists of free individuals, who teach freely those whom they think are receptive. If...

Re: The Dharma Mind.

The Dharma Mind way of practice is the path that embraces all of life without discrimination, cultivating that spirit of inclusiveness. Not the one-sided path of lists and formulas, like so many offer, but instead the path of learning to open up in a whole and complete way to ourselves in everyday ...

Re: RuShi ?

Chögyam Trungpa had this great idea of "Dharma without credentials", but the fact is that Dharma is mostly or only about credentials. What we can say is that teaching and communication of Dharma take place, informally and with all elaborate formalities. Once it has happened, i.e. you have understoo...

Re: RuShi ?

Hello ! Tarthang Tulku says that lineage is always a manysided and complex issue in true reality. Various lineages are based on religious-political concensus or power struggle. If you want to the realize the equality of samsara and nirvana you can start meditating on the manner in which the lineage...

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

"These days...many people want to skip everything and go directly to the completion stage. There are also those who, without having done any yidam practice or preliminaries, immediately want to do the yogic practices involving the subtle channels and energies. I, however, have great doubts about th...

Normally only in retreat and only in secluded locations but it depends on what part of the Rushens you mean.

Re: Difference between Dzogchen and Mahamudra

Thank you, everybody, I will read Tsele Natsok Rangdrols text "Heart of the matter", this books seems a great source. They call Dzogchen the pinnacle of all yanas and this makes me feel like Mahamudra was a step below it. So what is missing in Mahamudra to make it complete, I wonder. :reading: M.L....

Re: Difference between Dzogchen and Mahamudra

Lopon Tenzin Namdak says ... Mahamudra is the union of emptiness and bliss, and as Tsongkhapa explained very clearly the emptiness refered to is that of the Madhyamaka view; this is not the view of emptiness refered to in Dzogchen. and he continues ... Many schools have terms and propositions which...

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

Well, a book is not like personal instruction for one cannot ask back. It is more like a lecture, a teaching on something, except that probably it is better composed. And if it is a teaching on Dzogchen one receives a teaching on that, including instructions for meditation. Definitely it has a less...
