I am so unbelievably fortunate to have been able to see Rinpoche in person and watch his teachings live via webcast. I'll never forget reading The Song of the Vajra book and being completely blown away by the depth of it, and then soon after, watching him give practically the same teaching extemporaneously months later was simply mind blowing. It was hard to fathom the scope of Rinpoche's knowledge. I felt like (knew I suppose) I'd just witnessed one of the most incredible events in my life. I wanted to jump up and shout with awe and amazement when it was finished. If you are a student of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu and have not read Song of the Vajra, please buy a copy and read it as soon as you can.

Thank you to Rinpoche for his unbelievable kindness and generosity. Whatever sadness I am feeling is overpowered with the gratitude I have for his teachings and the desire to dedicate myself even further to them.

I wish that I could have met him in person. I didnt even email him, not wanting to bother him. What would I have asked him since he taught what I needed to know? Maybe he could have said something to me personally to help my faith, but I'm sure he still can.

When I read the news it was like a lightening bolt, shock, and his presence ... one last DI for the road. I'm so tired. I wish I could have gone with him.

Now to keep practicing and try not to be too distracted ... in the dark ... with the light of the world gone ... my wise and compassionate guru ... thank you :heart: OM A HUM

My condolences to Rinpoche's family and all his students and friends.
Such an immense loss.
I pray for Rinpoche's swift rebirth.
May the dzogchen community continue Rinpoches wishes.
AH.

I think this is Rinpoche's final rebirth before liberation. But we'll see.

Tashi delek,

A great Dzogchen Master passed away into Nirvana.
He contributed great to the spreading of Dzogchen and is respected in all Tibetan Lineages.

He was also in Bön known for his search for Zhang Zhung and met H.E. Lopon Tenzin Namdak as well the late H.H. the 33rd Menri Trizin Rinpoche.

===================

Great explanation.

Now is not the time. For now we share the practices given to us daily.

AFAIK there is no public information.
It seems like now those who have been fortunate enough to have made a connection with ChNN and his transmission simple continue out practices, and purify and maintain samaya.

Considering ChNN's wisdom and his efforts in building the DC, I'm sure there is some plan in place for its continuation that will be announced when it is appropriate.

One of the first things that attracted me to Rinpoche was his smile and his loving yet piercing eyes. When he taught it was so down to earth and personal, and with such compassion and wisdom.

It's sad that he is gone from the form we knew, but he has not left us. I feel closer to him now more than ever.

I am grateful to Malcolm and other DC members for recommending Rinpoche back at e-sangha.

I am eternally grateful to my Root Guru ChNN for pointing out my true nature.

He opened my heart

causing me to realize that he is my heart and always was my heart.

My job now is to keep that heart open

so that others can feel its vibration

see its lights

and absorb its rays

causing their hearts to do the same

until we are all on the same page

vibrating, shining and spreading rays across the vast expanse

until we get the job done.

So Vajra brothers and sisters, let's do it.

Let's drop our worldy concerns and focus on what our Guru taught us to do,

what we came to this dimension to do in the first place,

Open more hearts, as many as we can while we are still here,

just as Rinpoche did for us for his entire life.

The time is now and the clock is ticking,

so let's do it.

I had the opportunity to address ChNNR’s passing to Garchen Rinpoche. He recommended the recitation of Amithaba mantra, fyi
Ho! All the possible appearances and existences of samsara and nirvana have the same source, yet two paths and two results arise as the magical display of awareness and unawareness.

Well, he's recommending that to *his* students presumably. ChNN's own students and DC members should follow His advice, which is pretty unmistakable, not mysterious, and was repeated pretty regularly.

This.
ChNN and his senior students have defined exactly what we should be practising at this time.
Of course, people who follow other Gurus may wish to follow their advice instead.
If you follow both, I would still adhere to the wishes of ChNN and not mix things.
