Who is left in this modern world now? One of the great masters has gone off. We have Lama Tsultrim and Garchen Rinpoche left of the modern world from what I know, and perhaps his successor. Is there anyone else out there left of this era?
Khenpo Namdrol.
This one?

I've been lighting a ghee lamp for Rinpoche every night since the news of his imminent Parinirvana broke. I usually leave it to burn itself out. There's always quite a bit of black residue and bits of wick left once the burning is done. Last night however, there was almost no residue. It was the cleanest, most complete burn I have ever seen, with just a tiny bit of charred wick.

I have never had the opportunity the man but the impact he's had on my existence is beyond any description. He turned me back onto the path of Dharma, when I had given up and abandoned it.

I have no idea where I'll go from here but I'm happy that I managed to come into contact with one of last of the great masters.

No. He’s from Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok which is Palyul Nyingma. ChNN has senior students who are certified to give teachings. The different gars post calendars when a certified instructor comes to town to teach something. I’m not sure who would assume the mantle for giving webcasts and direct introductions. Perhaps it’s why Malcom mentioned KN. He’s young and extremely knowledgeable about Dzogchen. So it’s an opportunity to get deep into the subject.

Im aware of SMS instructors, they can give explanations, trid, but no wang, or lung nor direct introduction.
So how can be Khenpo Namdrol succesor of ChNNR then? If he dont holds Longsal terma teachings of Rinpoche. Sorry for questions in this situation...

I think answered before. But to restate, I don’t know what will become of Longsal instructions. If ChNN didn’t appoint a successor it’s difficult. Perhaps his son?

KN has a deep basket of traditional Dzogchen under his belt. He is young and very committed. His teachings are very clear. It would take some effort and expense to attend him.

Not sure if this is a 'coincidence' or not 1hr ago

while having a contemplative walk, wondering about the point of it all, (as you do :thinking: )

just saw one of these Rainbow coloured Post office vans (never seen one before here in the UK)

Absolutely. Please let's keep this to reflections on ChNN's passing, and not speculations about a successor.

We also need to be looking out for specific practices and webcasts.

No, but that is not the point. The point is he is a highly qualified teacher of Dzogchen.

Hm, this hit me quite hard. Especially since I have dreamt today that he has gotten better and met with his students in Merigar. Time to do our best for real,

My heart goes out to all of his students. :heart: May you all be inseparable from his wisdom mind.

And a special wish for those for whom this is a first, painful lesson in impermanence from your teacher. For people like me who have no special qualities a departure like this is so full of grief it's overwhelming.

There is no end to all the subjects one could study.
