Our dear Maestro Chögyal Namkhai Norbu is continuing his convalescence and his health is steadily improving.

He has decided not to undertake the journey planned for Asia and to remain at Merigar. This is for various reasons and various obstacles that are manifesting in connection with this journey.

Good to know he is recovering,however:

Follow the webcasts when they are available.
It took me several years to "meet" Rinpoche in person, during that time I followed webcasts and practiced.
Meeting him confirmed the power of his transmission that I had already received.
He webcasts for this reason, because he knows he can reach us through the medium of technology.

This is from an old thread in Vajracakra http://www.vajracakra.com/viewtopic.php ... =10#p33940
Malcolm wrote:Recommended books now that you have transmission:

Guruyoga
Song of the Vajra
Crystal and the Way of Light
Precious Vase.

And of course, you need to learn the thuns.
Which thuns are these? I've been told that the thuns in the book 'The Tun and the Ganapuja' http://shop.shangshungfoundation.com/en ... 07786.html cannot be practiced without the specific empowerments.

Singing the Song of the Vajra.

In particular, this si good to do at important astrological times, such as new moons, full moons, and eclipses, and important lunar dates, like the 10'th and so on.

PM'd with what the D.C calendar it's self says. Also, + 1 for the prayer of Kuntuzangpo
Prayer of Kuntuzangpo (Tib. ཀུན་བཟང་སྨོན་ལམ་, Kunzang Mönlam; Wyl. kun bzang smon lam) — a famous Dzogchen aspiration prayer from the Gongpa Zangthal. It is to be recited especially during a solar or lunar eclipse, an earthquake or at the solstices.

Can someone tell me if Vajra breathing is described in detail in any specific book? I am not sure I am understanding it correctly as it is explained in the Guruyoga book.

Guys a question? This may have been addressed in previous posts in this thread but lacking time to find exact post.

So for the upcoming November webcast which I have never attended before, it is DI right?

Since the DI in dzongchen does require a theoretical understanding to some extent as well and because the theory differs from other systems such as Lamdre I'm wondering if receiving this transmission negatively affects involvement in pointing out systems of other traditions. One specific concern I can think of is in some systems "everything is mind" is the basic understanding which may not be true in dzogchen. I find it confusing that what is pointed out during these DI is same when the assumptions are different. Any comments? May be people have had experience attending DI in different traditions. Thank you so much!

What assumtions that may be different? Norbu Rinnpoche is very clear in his explanations.

By assumptions I mean theoretical claims are different in different Tibetan schools. For example as far as a I understand "everything is mind' a clear central to Lamdre is not so in Dzogchen. So would that be confusing to someone whose primary practice is in sakya school?

It can be, depends on you. Great masters like Khyentse Wangpo and Jamgon Kongtrul and so on didn't get confused.

There is no negative impact in receiving Dzogchen introduction.
It's a transmission of knowledge of your natural state, its really not considered to be a theoretical understanding at all.

Are there any DC practices/mantras that would be particularly appropriate prior to a formal session of Dharma study? Anything conducive to memory, focus, understanding etc?

9 breathings and Element purification. Rinpoche often relays that the elements mantra helped him memorizing long root texts when he studying at a Sakya college.
