Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Has Attained Parinirvana

Post by Mantrik » Thu Sep 27, 2018 11:19 pm

DC UK emailed an official announcement that our Master passed away at 9pm.

Dear friends,
Tonight, Thursday 27 September, at 9 pm our beloved Master left this earthly existence in a serene and peaceful way, at his residence, Gadeling, Merigar.
The Namkhai Family

We ask everyone to respect the privacy of the Family and the request for silence and reflection.

Students from all over the world are coming to Merigar to be together and practice. The daily collective practices are continuing and as soon as we receive directions from the Namkhai Family we will let you know how you can pay your respects and honor our beloved and precious Master.
Please remember that at the moment the Master is in Thugdam (Samadhi), a phase that lasts from 3 to 7 days that should not be disturbed.

Merigar Gakyil

Maybe Mods would wish to split this as a new topic. I'm not sure....

No, I think i'll allow people to express how they feel at a very important moment, regarding one of the most important Dharma teachers of our age, should they desire to. It goes without saying it should be kept respectful.

A universal teacher, a true guru for this mad era. The Picasso of Tibetan wisdom teachings. A rare diamond who’s brilliance and clarity cut through the poisons of cynicism and ignorance alike.


I left Buddhism years ago, but I have never left what he showed me about the nature of mind, and he has remained one of the only lights I could ever cling to.

From the link:

"...No one can always be together with his or her teacher and this is unnecessary as he already has given his student important transmissions and teachings that are his very essence. You have to understand that your teacher's essence is inseparable from your primordial state. In that condition you can no longer say, "I cannot be in my real nature" as the physical level is merely relative. Sometimes when we joke, play, and practice together people become extremely happy thinking, "I am joyous to be with my teacher. " At such a moment I repeat that in order to be really happy you should practice Guruyoga. By continuously practising Guruyoga you will always remain with your teacher in the inseparable state of his and your primordial state."

I heard a story about when Marpa's son died falling off a horse (or something like that). His students came to him and saw him crying. They asked, "Teacher, you taught us that everything is an illusion, so why are you crying?"

Marpa replied, "Yes, it's an illusion, but a very big illusion."

Love and prayers to every student of Rinpoche. :heart:

I am of course disheartened by this news and disappointed in myself that I was not able to get as far in my practice while he was still alive, but for some reason this past week of practicing together has given me more confidence in my practice.

Does anyone know if we can still purify our samaya with Rinpoche while he is in this samadhi state? I've been doing the practices over the past week or so, but I haven't been able to make every one. I see they are still webcasting the practices daily, so I hope that means there is still an opportunity to purify any problems with samaya. Does anyone know? Thanks.

Yes, you can, of course.

The title of this thread is somewhat vague. This really isn’t any old “update,” not that the title needs to state anything explicitly, but it falls short of capturing the importance of this, and could be easily overlooked.

This marks the end of an era of Dharma in the modern world methinks.

May all of us Vajra siblings purify our samaya and recognise our primordial state.
