Main students of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Post by CedarTree » Tue Nov 21, 2017 10:47 pm

I have a quick question of the thriving DW Choygal scene.

Since he is getting older who is going to take over for him once he passes away? Are there certain students always kind of mentioned as his "close and top students?"

If not who do you think will become the next big figurehead of Dzogchen.

Thanks guys!

If you are in the DC you should already have some idea or know who to ask.
It is not a question for here, I suggest.

I think it's a suitable question. There is no harm from it.

Figurehead?

Rinpoche is no figurehead.

No breach of ToS. That isn't what I meant.

Discussing the internal politics of the DC is not something ChNN is likely to approve of.

Such internal politics are pretty sensitive at this time, as those in Singapore know, and such a discussion could turn in a way which could indeed spawn harm.

So no, it is not suitable, in my opinion, although others in the DC may disagree.

Alirght perhaps better not to have this conversation then. I guess I am not aware of all the dynamics. Thank you for the imput Mantrik.
