Another teacher supporting us right now is Lama Denys, of the Shangpa Kagyu Rime sangha:

"En l’esprit du Maitre Namkaï Norbu Rinpoche, nous pratiquons l’Ati Guru Yoga nous joignant à nos frères et sœurs de la communauté Dzogchen. En communion, de cœur à cœur.

Shangpa Lama Denys et la communauté Rimay."

It is.

I still keep feeling utterly astounded by the incredible response of Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and his sangha -- and some of his local sanghas in particular. The Polish Ligmincha sangha is now practicing our Ati Guru Yoga daily, with the intention of benefitting our teacher and sangha.

The son and dharma heir of the late Shenphen Dawa Rinpoche & the sangha and seat of the Dudjom Tersar immediately expressed their support when the news first broke:

Our family and Sangha members send out our hearts and prayers to Rinpoche's family, loved ones and his Sangha .

Thank you, Quay! Great to know.
I know that other Dudjom Tersar lamas (including Lopon Ogyan Tanzin Rinpoche) have been doing practices for the benefit of Rinpoche and the DC as well.

Are there any more elaborate explanations available of the Guru Yoga of the White A practice that we're focusing on just now?

I have the Guruyoga book, which has a nice, very concise commentary, but I could use a little more elaboration.

Anything really. Ati Guru Yoga is the essence of all yanas. Practicing diligently is far better than reading a bunch of books though. The Guru Yoga book is sufficient.
Kye ma!

Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

Rec'd via email:
Cari tutti,
il Maestro è arrivato questo pomeriggio alle ore 17,30 alla sua residenza di Gadeling, Merigar.
Le pratiche continuano regolarmente come da programma.

Dear all,
our precious Master arrived at 5:30 pm. at his residence at Gadeling, Merigar.
We continue to perform the practices as programmed.
I admit I don't know if this is good news (Rinpoche is recovering) or sad news (sent home to be comfortable during final hours).

Back to Guru Yoga... :meditate:

There's an MP3 with explanation and practice available on Shangshung store.

There's also an explanation in the old Dzogchen Ritual Practices book, but it's not very elaborate either.

Malcolm, are you saying that I shouldn't have shared this email (info from Merigar)? Didn't think it was different from other official emails shared here, but if it was inappropriate I'll remove it asap.

It was about the speculation not about the email.

Finney, if you read carefully, what I said was that apart from communications which you shared, we should maintain silence, according to a request that can be found in the mirror on Facebook— so no worries.

Thanks, Malcolm. Should've taken your post at its grammatical word rather than wonder if it was to be parsed differently.

in the longsal series there is the record of it's source, but i don't know if for reading this part in particular one needs empowerment, i would say yes.

GY of GD appears in the secondary practice booklet, but truly there isn't a better GY, it should be the main <3

Guruyoga is Guruyoga, surely. You are expressing an individual preference.......or less kindly, a limitation. Mine is Nangsi Silnön ;)
