Re: Dzogchen: When are you ready for it?

That and relying on the Guru should get the job done. What do you mean by, "get the job done"?

Re: Dzogchen: When are you ready for it?

Yes, I agree. Especially upon the reliance of the Guru. I remember when I was in Barcelona in 2006 for Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche's retreat and he stressed how Guru Yoga was most important. It was a once in a life time opportunity to study with a modern day master. :namaste: Absolutely. The Guru is the...

Re: Dzogchen: When are you ready for it?

On the subject of East vs West, I think the west is quite ready for the Ati level of Buddhism because consider the advances in knowledge in the West since the dawn of the so-called Enlightenment from the Mediaeval times.

Re: where to go to seek confirmation of attainment?

Very interesting, and clearly you have more knowledge about the path of a Bodhisattva than I! I have very little. But I aspire to learn. Having said that, the site I linked is an interesting place...it never hurts to acquire new knowledge about the path to freedom. :) Absolutely. Anything connected...
