Re: Dr. Nida Chengtsang - Yuthok Nyingthig

Thanks. I was referring to this Wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuthok_Nyingthig. Seems to be a somewhat unconventional lineage, but I like the fact that it's a Ngakpa lineage. Sort of refreshingly different from the monastic ones.

Dr. Nida Chengtsang - Yuthok Nyingthig

Anyone ever visited a retreat from Dr. Nida Chenagtsang (https://www.sorig.net)? Is he legit? I am less interested in Tibetan medicine, but rather in the other teachings he gives, especially Tantra and Dzogchen. There is a website on the Yuthok Nyingthig, but it does not say a lot: Yuthok Nyingthig.

Re: The regenerative potential of primordial state

By the way, there is a Bön version of Padmasambhava's birth, with a remarkable storyline that actually starts at an earlier point in time compared to the Buddhist version. It explains how Padmasambhava finally ended up in the famous lotus flower. Furthermore, in this version, he has a twin brother. ...

Re: The regenerative potential of primordial state

i've read what Loppon-la had to say about the regenerative power of the primordial state and his reasoning seems clear and coherent. that being said, when original Teacher first moved to the u.s, He was opening a pull-out bed and cut His finger very badly. after wrapping it in cloth, He immediately...

Re: The regenerative potential of primordial state

The exact meaning of yeshe (Sanskrit: jnana) depends on the context. If appearing in the context of rigpa, it means its innate knowing quality. Rigpa is not just dead, it has the capacity to directly know or experience without being clouded over. As it's not contaminated by intellectualizing or thou...

Nope. We will all die.
Well, maybe I did not express myself very clearly, but I am not interested in the question of death or longevity. I was referring whether tummo practice leads to balancing of energies and removal of afflictions.

Re: The regenerative potential of primordial state

If a person rests in the natural state, their energies become harmonized, but it doesn't mean that all their chronic afflictions and diseases caused by conflict of the elements are removed. As Malcolm said, if it did, someone who was realized would be able to live in perpetuity. Kevin Would tummo p...

Re: What it means to be a ngakpa

How do you know his termas are fake? What is your basis for such an evaluation? Are they inconsistent with the meaning of the Dharma in general? Is there some teaching within them that contradicts Buddhadharma specifically? If yes, what specifically? If no, then what is the problem? Well, I don't w...

Re: Garchen Nyingtig Yabshi Germany 2018 Questions

I know lung, but what’s the difference to wang and specially Pewang? A pewang is a text blessing after which you can read the texts yourself but you can't pass it onto someone else. With lung you theoretically can do that. /magnus Now I am puzzled. I have never heard that a lung authorizes you - ev...

Re: Garchen Nyingtig Yabshi Germany 2018 Questions

Alright, thanks for your replies. Not sure I will attend if there are expected only very little teachings. Otherwise I end up with a great transmission and no clue how it could meaningfully improve my meditation practice.

Re: The Future

Most young people would probably rather get drunk and laid, can't say I was much different. I generally worry not about those who like getting drunk and laid at a young age, but about those who practice Vajrayana instead. They usually have a longer way ahead of them getting over their unresolved sp...

Re: Siddhis/Methods for Fixing Scoliosis

If I was a Buddha who had the knowledge how another could cure scoliosis him-/herself, and someone would approach me asking for cure - would I send the person away telling that this wish is too worldly and the person should first purify his/her mindstream from the idea of getting rid of the disease?...

Re: Garchen Nyingtig Yabshi Germany 2018 Questions

@heart: Then I'm a little confused. I understood that first there's the Yamantaka transmission that takes 2 days or so (22 - 23.9.). After this there the retreat is apparently going on till 30.9., so in other words for the Nyingtik Yabshi 7 days are planned in. I am just wondering, if I would like t...

Re: Garchen Nyingtig Yabshi Germany 2018 Questions

This indeed sounds quite thrilling. I've some questions:

1. Are there any prerequisites for attending the retreat and receiving the transmission?
2. Will there be also Dzogchen practice including instructions, or will the entire time be used up by the transmission only?

Re: Worldly wish fulfilling mantras?

Just as general relationship advice, Dharma or non-Dharma girlfriends - be patient looking for the right one.

Re: Worldly wish fulfilling mantras?

My main point is in relation to the majority of practitioners, that are far less advanced in their practice. Realistically speaking, in most cases it takes up a lot of time that could be spent practicing/studying, and it also creates strong negative emotions. And by the application of which siddhis...
