Re: Silent practice in Dzogchen Community - what are the options?

Rinpoche always said to do our best and to work within our circumstances. I would suggest just mouthing the words, which can even be done on an in breath - otherwise, silently. I believe intent is the most important aspect.

The basis being discussed, as clarified here by Jigme Lingpa, is not the original, generic basis (aka the unfabricated mind essen...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Great article in The Melong in case anyone missed it: Recalling The Presence of the Master Rinpoche’s parents didn’t have a son so Rinpoche’s father went to the great Dzogchen master Adzom Drugpa.

Re: Why electronic voting is a bad idea

I didnt vote this year because I moved to a different county right before the registration deadline, which is about a month prior to elections. Although I re-registered online, because I moved missed the deadline, I would have had to travel 1 1/2 hours one way to vote, and this was not possible.

Damming valleys into reservoirs,
There must be angry nagas in my area because we have two reservoirs in my county - unless the nagas now enjoy the lakes. One town had to be moved as its location is now under water.

Did everyone see the new book, "Starting the Evolution" by ChNNR? https://shop.shangshungfoundation.com/e ... 41654.html
Look like a very brief Introduction. I'll wait for the ebook.
The ebook is available.
