Dungse Rigzin Dorje Rinpoche

Post by KonchokZoepa » Mon Mar 31, 2014 11:25 am

Hi, does anyone know this Lama.

What is the name of his home monastery and is it in Assam?

does he uphold the complete Vima Nyingtik cycle?
If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

-Milarepa

I went to a teaching and empowerment he gave locally a few years ago on Chod and Throma and I was impressed. In talking with him afterwards he seemed like a kind and genuine lama.

(Apologies for the necro:)

Has Rinpoche ever taught in Europe?

He is one my main lamas.
He's wonderful and overflows with bodhicitta.
Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
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.

Unfortunately he is currently forbidden from teaching in the United States (and has been for years) because of issues that DHS has with classifying people who live in Assam.

Hopefully he has been able to teach elsewhere in the past few years.

That is both very sad and quite surprising. In what way is Assam legally different from other regions of India, I wonder? Hopefully the EU has different regulations.

No, it is because they won’t let him travel with more than one other person.

A mutual friend told me that the issue was that DHS classified all the people (the monks and nuns) who are with him in Assam as potential terrorists. The issue being that DHS has simply decided to blanket classify people from Assam in this way.

If it were merely an issue of not being able to travel with another person then that could be remedied (although he might not want to do that since it would mean leaving his monastics in India). He could travel with a group of western students.

Unless you mean that the US is insisting that he literally has to travel completely by himself - which is not a travel restriction I have ever heard of.

I am very familiar with the matter. When the Obama Admin came in, they placed heavy restrictions in religious workers visas, contra the Bush era policies which were surprisingly forgiving. Thus, they would not approve the Dungsey Rinpoche's chod group, and would issue no more than two visa. One person beside himself was not sufficient for the healing chod tour, and the legals fees were mounting into the thousands. Thus, they dropped the issue.

What was up obama's ass? Just making nice with china?
I know he canceled meetings with HHDL.
I noticed i saw more of my overseas Lama's when bush was in and when
obama came in the doors were closed.

I too had an event set up in Boston with Rinpoche when this happened.
It was in the summer 2010 and DHS simply shut them out.

Hopefully this will be one of the Obama admin's policies that Trump will rollback. I'd love to meet and receive teachings from him!!!
