Thanks a lot for posting, Yudron. I've long wanted to receive some teachings from Garchen Rinpoche and make that connection... What a wonderful opportunity to receive these teachings on bodhicitta from him. :twothumbsup:

Garchen Rinpoche is in Arizona. "Mountain time" is one of the time zones in The USA.
Arizona is in the time zone area known as "Mountain Time" verses say
a time zone area known as "Eastern Time"...

Haha how funny. Never occurred to me how strange "mountain time" would sound to someone not familiar with this time zone. I'm also wondering if Magnus thought Yudron was just exclaiming "found it!" and then randomly announcing she was headed up into the mountains haha.

So many commercials. Not cool. Vid cuts out often. This is a disaster.

If you use chrome and have adblocker enabled then you wont get any adverts on the video.

I hope they fix the cutting out I was looking forward to hearing this teaching.

Firefox and adblock also work nicely, however that doesn't matter if we get the teaching all chopped up.

My teacher Drubpon Gonpo Dorje told me we don't have the right foundation conditions for a empowerment via webcast. We need to make offerings, etc. He said Vajrayogini is very important for Drikung Kagyu. So I'm not surprised this isn't working out. He said he'll invite Garchen Rinpoche to our center so we can do this right. I think the people who are handling Garchen Rinpoche need to follow the tradition. Watch out for Achi. This is a very strong dharma protector.

Garchen Rinpoche don't seem much concerned with restrictions, in my experience at least.

You could be right, Deep Blue Hung. Or it could be that the level of internet service at their rural center is just not suitable. At our center in in California, for example, we rely on satellite for internet. That's not suitable for webcasts, so our lama has to travel to a professional facility at some distance to do webcasts. The U.S. is far behind Europe in internet service.

That said. Adblock and frequent reloads seem to help a little.
