Re: Dzogchen and Mahamudra: differences and similarities

Basically, Dzogchen upadeshas provide a path that centers around self arising bindu. They also put special emphasis on the importance of attaining a rainbow body. Whereas, the other lineages do not. And self arising bindu are known to all lineages, but that is not their path appearance. Their path i...

Re: non-physical heat during dzogchen meditation

What does the literature you read tell you about the need for a guru and transmission as a prerequisite for practice? Or about the ability to practice without receiving the relevant empowerments? It tells me that the highest guru is your own natural state, that texts can be transmissions and that e...

Re: non-physical heat during dzogchen meditation

Do you not notice how every single Dzogchen master say the same? I am well aware that for many dzogchen practitioners, their only source of information is their own teacher plus probably some unrestricted books of other teachers. Because of their "tunnel vision", they simply assume that the teachin...

Re: non-physical heat during dzogchen meditation

It a good deal to follow your inspiration. We are all ignorant beings. How would we know who’s a realized teacher and who isn’t? We can rely on the lineages with good repute and/or we can go with someone inspirational. There are all kinds of experiences in meditation, some good and some bad. Some go...

Re: Effects of alcohol on the channels

Not related to the channels themselves, but I recently came across ChNNR quoting a tantra that says that a tantric practitioner who gets drunk goes to hell. So it is more than undesirable; as a situation where there is loss of awareness. It’s all about this: being able to remain aware. Trungpa and ...

Re: Dzogchen and Mahamudra: differences and similarities

From perspective of the path: very different. That is, if you are thinking, “I heard about this lama giving Mahamudra teachings.” The you’re talking about Kagyu Mahamudra and the teacher is probably a monk and you will get a heavy sutra crossover. However, if you heard about Mahamudra from the persp...

Thankfully we have Vajrayana. In bad place, I can count on mantras. That always works for me.

Re: So, Anthony Bourdain...

Almost never care about celebrities, but Anthony Bourdaine was different. I really loved the guy. Two of my exes and me loved his show. Who doesn’t love travel and food? My gf saw him walking around a few weeks ago. When he came to SF, he went to my bar and ate at my burger joint. When I went to Asi...

If it is certain one is going to Vajra Hell, does one display any mental or physical symptoms?
Your head will be split into seven pieces.
