ChNN practice from a dream

Post by passel » Tue Sep 08, 2015 6:58 pm

A couple years ago, I met with Chogyal Namkhai Norbu in a dream and he gave me a practice. I know him only from books, but study Dzogchen with another teacher. Here's the practice:

A three-part breathing practice,
Part 1: draw breath energy into head, down to shoulders/ chest area, saturating the body with fresh energy , count 100 breaths
Part 2: same, but draw it from the head down to the navel, continuing the saturation, for another 100 breaths
Part 3: same, but all the way from the head down to (and through) the floor, for another 100 breaths

By the end, you usually feel very concentrated, embodied, full of energy. Saturated is a good way to describe it.
I usually use it early on in a retreat, to prep for more stable trekchod.

I doubt ChNN teaches anything like this, but just curious if it resembles anything he teaches?

Nope.

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.

Didn't think so.
