Re: Bön monasteries in Tibet, Nepal and India.

Triten Norbutse Monastery is situated in Nepal/ Kathmandu. It is an offshot of the original Triten Norbutsé Monastery located in Tibet. Lopon La is the Lineage Holder of all Bön Lineages. No, Rinpoche is the head of all Menri/Yungdrung Ling lineages. There are lots of Bon and New Bon lineages not c...

Re: Dzogchen & Vipashyana on thoughts

What emotions are you referring to and whom are the right people? And why exactly would this be the right thing to do? I think this should be self evident. But in case it is not, I would venture to say that when a practitioner finds fault in someone else and this stirs emotion, this should be a mes...

Re: Top 5 Dzogchen books

Even in this case, for instance JLA, cannot teach official Dzogchen etc. Yes he can. He has done so in the past and does it occasionally. He has authorization to teach Man-ngag-sde up to and including Thögel (he several times gave extensive supporting teachings on this subject at the request of Lop...

Re: Buddhahood

Longchenpa has indeed repeatedly that all these practices shall be construed as to do a retreat in solitude. For him, the practice of " the world " is a practice for beginners , who are unable to renounce the world itself. The isolation facilitates the dissipation of distraction which is the main t...

Well that was an amazing lesson for me here. Does not seem you register the conclusion. Transcribed and edited by Carol and Dmitry Ermakovi This is precisely the problem, generally Reynolds does a better job at transcribing than these. So first point, it has nothing to do at all with John Reynolds ...

Re: Buddhahood

I can only imagine that. Bonpo Dzogchen Teachings has been heavily edited and since Yongdzin was teaching in English (and his English is... peculiar to say the least), it is difficult to say with 100 per cent certainty that this is what Yongdzin Rinpoche thinks, even in the transcripts edited in She...

Re: Buddhahood

Yes that was i expecting, this answer from you. Malcolm's answer was correct. The Bönpos do not say otherwise. But we think here in our Bon Dzogchen tradition different about that. No, it is not true. It is one of the various opinions Yongdzin Rinpoche held and rejected throughout the years (probab...

What we usually think of as "spirits" in the west are called bhutas in India... I'm not sure what the Tibetan translation of that term would be.
This is 'byung ba in tibetan (elemental forces).

The previous posts have pretty much covered pros and cons. I met the woman in question once, more than ten years ago, and she seemed interesting but by no means a qualified Vajrayana teacher. Her website at that time was full of complete drivel. She may very well have absorbed enough of the teachin...
