Re: recommended Dzogchen retreats/courses/teachers

Yes Lama Yeshe Rinpoche received Yangti instructions one on one directly from TUR in Nepal, at Nagi Gonpa, and completed his first continuous 49 day dark retreat under TUR'S guidance there in the early 90's. He has since completed at least 2 more. As for teaching, he mainly gives general meditation ...

Re: Emptiness: the reality beyond reality

Whatever words, which can help to stop/reduce the clinging to words, or clinging in general, is not a bad translation. Whatever translation, which fits “me” is not always a good translation.
I may need this translated.

Re: Emptiness: the reality beyond reality

Stong pa translates śūnya . Nyid translates tā = śūnyatā . The first part means "empty," the tā suffix is equivalent to "ness" in English, hence the term "emptiness" is really the most accurate translation of that term into English. Here, Mingyur Rinpoche is not carefully distinguishing two differe...

Re: Mala

That type of knot is called a wall knot, you'll probably be able to find a tutorial on you tube. I learned to tie these, once you get the hang of it, it's quite straight forward

Re: Loch Kelly

a We'll I can tell you, I'm in Vajradhara Ling in France with Mingyur Rinpoche now...and it is very reasonable...course fees and accommodation. How many people are there? How much do they pay each? Add it up... It might be perfectly reasonable to you but if there many people like 50-100-200 persons...

Re: Loch Kelly

I am not too comfortable with his comments.. "I do feel that I get most everything they are pointing to and so I trying to convey but I try to update them where the practices at times seem archaic and too formal and miss the how-to pieces which I try to fill in in different ways." As for fees well?...

Re: Copper Colored mountain location?

There is a reecnt facebook post noting that Kathok Bairo Rinpoche recognised Uluru Mountain (Ayers rock) in Austrailia as Zangdok Palri. Wrong direction... Yeah, I know, I just remembered I'd seen it when I noticed this thread, interesting none the less; https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=...

Re: First ever Empowerment at Samye Ling what can I expect?

Minyak Rinpoche will be totally fine with you taking notes...also he will explain quite a bit during the empowerment...so it will useful to have a pad and pen to hand. I doubt he will give any specific commitment. When he gave the Vajrasattva Empowerment previously at Samye Ling, he used a Shitro te...

Re: For the Wanderers: Mingyur Rinpoche's Wanderings

To be fair, I'm pretty sure Mingyur Rinpoche's retreat wasn't centred on Chö, but mainly a Dzogchen/Mahamudra retreat based on the instructions of his father, Tulku Urgyen, and his other main Dzogchen Guru, Nyoshul Khenpo....and also the Mahamudra instructions of Tai Situpa which he received just be...

I'm pretty sure Malcolm mentioned once that there are Tögal instructions for blind practitioners in the dgongs pa zang thal.
