Re: Rainbow body questions

It has done that, but I sometimes wonder if instead of resisting it and agonizing about it, those people wouldn’t be better off just biting the bullet and get it done. In the context of a lifetime of practice it’s not that much time, and If health is an issue, most lamas will let you do something i...

Re: Rainbow body questions

Yes it is important for you to do your Ngondro! Since you are not a teacher you certainly don't know that and anyway this idea that doing Ngondro is compulsory have ruined at lot of peoples practice. /magnus It has done that, but I sometimes wonder if instead of resisting it and agonizing about it,...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I didn't watch the webcast, but I guess if they're not from the 7 used in the SMS་ Base, they'd be from the 21 semdzins book. They didn't seem to be in there, but it was unlikely anyway as they are all rushen. https://shop.shangshungfoundation.com/en/restricted/693-outer-rushen-going-beyond-limitat...

Just curious, what draws you to Namcho Padmasambhava? Were you going to do the practice everyday? Do you know about the benefits of the practice? Thank you! I'm trying to identify a particular teaching. FWIW, I asked my lama who lived at Palyul Namdroling for many years about this. He reminded me t...

infinite just means they are uncountable.there is a set number of beings,and Dzogchen I have heard says all beings will attain full buddhahood,so what happens after that?do we go into a state like a coma?like the pali nibbana?

I know,what I mean is that when ALL beings have attained irreversible full enlightenment what happens then?Dzogchen says that this will happen if Im correct.

There are lots of different Wrathful Guru practices, and some other peaceful guru practices including ones on Vimalamitra, Ratna Lingpa and Padampa Sangye... it's a vast cycle.

Re: Namcho Padmasambhava

I looked through pretty much the entire outline that mutsuk linked, and so far as I can see there are two peaceful Guru Rinpoche sadhanas: one of them is the one I mentioned before, which is the in the form of Pema Jungne/Padmasambhava. The other seems to be in the form of Pema Gyalpo (one of the 8...

Re: Bad deeds with good intention

Excuses are irrelevant and delusion or wrong view doesn't matter. Hitler didn't kill anyone to try and help them, neither did anyone from witch trials. Idiocy. Delusion. Wrong View. are all completely irrelevant. Wrong view itself is the worst evil deed, so this is not correct. Since when does anyo...

Re: Bad deeds with good intention

The idea that I would be ok with that, just because I said trying to save someone from hell is well intentioned, would also be idiocy. However, it's quite obvious that saving someone from hell is a good intention. Once we start making excuses, where do we stop? After 60,000 people are killed? That ...

Does anyone have information regarding the Namcho Peaceful Padmasambhava sadhana, or know if the text is available somewhere? It is not on vimala treasures, and I haven't found any references to this sadhana either.
