Re: Yogacara and dzogchen

I disagree with many points Jyoti states regarding Dzogchen & Yogacara & other buddhist vehicles but we have to distinguish two groups of people. Firstly those who mix Dzogchen with other doctrines, including non Buddhist ones, to create a new ideology to set up as a business and as a self appointed...

Re: Females who achieved rainbow body

Most Dzogchen masters in the 4 TB schools are Nyingma in terms of numbers and many of them, if not most of them, & their masters like Chatral, Dilgo khyentse, Trulshik etc. etc., often stated Dudjom Lingpa & then Jigdrel Yeshe (mind emanation) were more realized than anyone else in their time includ...

Re: Females who achieved rainbow body

IMO as well as many other great Dzogchen masters, YMMV which is OK by me, Dudjom Lingpa & Dudjom Rinpoche were the most realized beings of their time. The fact that so many of their disciples who achieved rainbow body via their terma does not mean they achieved anything near the stage of their maste...

Re: Females who achieved rainbow body

Hi deepbluehum, Well to me it is extremely obvious the 4 stages of Semde & Essence Mahamudra are the same in essence (no pun intended) & although like all teachings, including longde & mengagde, they use concepts to communicate, their fruits after non-conceptual successful DI/Pointing-Out by themsel...

Re: Females who achieved rainbow body

AFAIK, could be wrong, there are 3 types of disappearing bodies. First is the atomic one where physical remains vanish. Then the second type which is sign of a even greater realized person or rainbow body as a result of thogal. Conceptual vehicles' fruits do not really compare to the fruits of Dzogc...

Re: The Song of Vajra

BTW the restricted book of ChNN for his students explaining "The Song of Vajra" explains the essence of the highest universal teaching of Dzogchen in a nutshell pithily yet precisely & completely & deserves many careful re-readings revealing more each time.

Re: becoming a wandering yogi?

That is great. If you have inclination for this noble aspiration then it might come true in future after you are ready. Before you settle down with a family.There was a rare kind of society in Tibet. Gars or temporary encampments & wandering yogis were not rare but a tribe of families of ngakpas wan...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Oh I read it properly, but I thought Dzogchen in general starts with DI, but apparently not? If that's not a general thing then I can see what you're saying. Perhaps Norbu Rinpoche is teaching more from a mengagde POV even when teaching Longde and Semde. :shrug: If you get the direct introduction n...

Re: becoming a wandering yogi?

Those that say this is not ancient India are wrong. Firstly there are wandering Vajrayana yogis in India now as in Tibet, Nepal & even Bhutan. Secondly there are western wandering Vajrayana yogis too. However since you are a newcomer I would say take at least a couple of years to build up your base ...

Re: Most Sacred Pilgrimage Site in Dzogchen?

I am going by memory here but as I recall there are 4 main power places in India (cardinal directions) & 4 in Tibet which include Samye & Potala mountain. Padmasambhava then yesheTsogyal blessed Tibet as a main power axis for the planet next to India as Cherezig wished in his chosen homeplace. There...

Hi Pero, I didn't say: one doesn't work at all with the mind in mengagde As you falsely claim as usual. Quite the opposite. That is why I say you have basic trouble reading things & understanding very very basic logical points. So on your main problem: Since all human written/spoken communication in...

For new folk Rinpoche gives the basic Ati (Dozgchen) guru yoga transmission tomorrow which is the main thing but it starts 6 hours earlier than today at 10 a.m. local time & will be the normal 2 hour daily teaching.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I'm sorry but I don't see how your reply explains what the supposed mental judgements in Semde are. If you're saying that the four yogas are conceptual methods till they're not, well, it's the same way in Mengagde methods (except thogal etc.). ... These methods working with the mind emphasize diffe...
