Thank you!
Good links Mutsuk. It is a very important Dzogchen lineage in our world system, that remains unbroken.

Kevin...
Just FYI, kalden yungdrung is not Mutsuk.
Right, Mrs. Mutsuk is fire
Kalden Yungdrung is water :rolling: :jumping: :D :o all based on illusions and dirty politics :rolleye:

No mistake, its ok this does not mean nothing to me, if i compare it with the political based, negative insults of Mrs. Mutsuk.
But that is illusion and does not count for Dharma practitioners, if they have understood very well the perfect Tibetan translations :anjali:

Have a nice day.

https://learn.wisdompubs.org/academy/co ... ipashyana/

Intro course based on Dudjom Lingpa's Dzogchen Termas. Other courses are available though Alan Wallace in cooperation with Wisdom Publications.
Wallace also offers the podcasts of his 2016 retreat on "Shamatha, Vipashyana, Mahamudra, and Dzogchen". It's 94 podcasts including all the twice-daily lectures and guided meditations during the 8-week retreat. It's not a quick overview. During the year or so I was exploring a "bridge" between my Gelug-oriented training and Dzogchen, I listened to this series just during the course of my regular walks. There are a lot of real gems in these teachings! They're available for free, voluntary donations welcome.
Agreed. Many a gem. I find his style quite engaging and inspirational. The online courses do require a fee, but definitely worth the buck.
Thanks for recommendation. Could you recommend books for easy understanding the lecture?

Tashi delek W,

Yes, the teachings are held at Facebook.

Special preparation is not needed because you will get an introduction into your own Natural State.
It means you have after that the permission to start with the practice.
Before and during your practice you will be guided, that can happen by means of questions and answers but also with instructions.

Best wishes, and maybe we will meet in July during the Zhang Zhung Nyengyud Dzogchen Teachings.

I do not know if I have to post my question here anyway I also have the same problem and I ask please help, I would like to practice Dzogchen but I never meditated in my life and I'm completely a beginner, and I also have trouble travelling, in the sense that I should do everything completely online forever, I read that there are courses of Alan Wallace and the traditional teachings of TenGelek Geshe but for example, how do I approach him on facebook? Can I tell him that I'm a total beginner? he will laugh! or more.... are the courses of Alan Wallace complete teachings of Dzogchen from A to Z or not? My request is simple and difficult at the same time, I would like to find a site or various sites that allow me to learn the various steps of Dzogchen and then to be followed online for the rest of my life in my progresses and failures.But only online I do not think I can participate in any retreats or meetings. PLEASE HELP ME! :smile:

Hi LattediTigre

Your interest in Dzogchen is a wonderful thing.
But as you have probably already read before, Dzogchen is a living knowledge that is ideally communicated directly & in person from a qualified master.

Sure... There are some things online.
The late Chögyal Namkhai Norbu used to give direct introduction via webcast, but this is far from being the norm.  
As far as I know, most of the other things you will find online will only be general introductions. To go into the heart of the matter, you will need a teacher.  

I saw that you leave in Spain...
Living in Europe, offers many opportunities to receive authentic Dzogchen teachings.  
Pardon me for asking, but what do you mean when you say that you "have trouble travelling" and you "do not think [you] can participate in any retreats or meetings" ?

Dear all,

https://dharmasun.org/courses/38th-annu ... ar-online/

Note that the first three days are free.

I believe that if anyone who cannot afford the rest of the teachings writes to them, you can attend for free or little money

This is real Dzogchen Dharma from a Master. If you attend you will be happy you did.

:heart:

Hi LattediTigre  

Oldbob very auspiciously shared with you a nice opportunity.

However, if may, go back to your situation:  
Sure having no car and being short on cash is an obstacle.
But do to be disheartened, and do not give up too easily to meet a master in person.  

Imagine... If you had met a person, felt crazily in love, and that person lived 1000 or 3000 Km away.  
Would you just say "Too bad. Let's have an online relationship" ?  
I guess no... I imagine you would try to figure out a way. Saving extra hard. Or just going on the road and hitch-hiking...  

Dzogchen teachings are infinitely more valuable than this.

Imagine all the hardships that the great masters of the past had to through.  
And even today... For instance, I have met many people from eastern Europe, doing thousands of kilometers in autostop / hitch-hiking to go to a retreat in France and then sleep in a little tent, or a crowded dorm, or simply outside on a bench...  

Of course, I am not saying all this to shame you. Not at all.  
But instead to try to inspire you and hint at the fact that we all face obstacles and that a big part of our path is precisely about learning how to skilfully work with our situations and make really the very best out of it. 

Wishing you all the best,  
Marc

Hi oldbob, not sure if you watched last night but I had to sign off earlier than it finished as it was past midnight my time and I have to be up at 5:30 AM. If I'm going to make more than one day, I won't catch the tail ends most likely.

Do you know where they publish the recorded videos? I think I was close to seeing the whole thing as it was the four hour and fifteen minute mark on the live stream when I disconnected.

Also, Rinpoche gave lung for A Treasury of Blessings but did not discuss the actual practice (as far as I know). This is the first lung I have seen as I'm relatively new to Dzogchen - is that typical?

Hope this is not too OT... I can repost elsewhere if needed.

Thanks!!

So I think this is still on topic... I have never taken refuge to a teacher before, and Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche offered them last night at the end of the teachings. I took them online but obviously wasn't there in person - however, I clipped a little bit of hair myself and touched my own head with a buddha statue I have as Rinpoche was doing the same in person online.

I personally look at this as if it "counts" so to speak but wanted to get others' input.

Also, as a part of the preliminaries for the practice being offered in the teaching are the following:

1. Mandala offering
2. Guru yoga - I have studied this through FPMT's Discovering Buddhism courses but don't have a specific teaching

I know what these are and have studied them from a high level but am curious if there are specific teachings by Rinpoche in this regard. I don't have specific texts on these practices.

Lastly, I assume the Vajrasattva is the general Vajrasattva practice, correct?

Thank you!!
Matt
