Tantric empowerment aside, neither can the master assess accurately the state of the student's mind for purposes of any pointing out instruction in any essence tradition even via live webcast.
Don't you accept validity of live webcasts?
May all beings be free from suffering and causes of suffering

For extraordinary practitioners sure I rejoice in their good fortune to meet the ear whispered lineage.

But for merely exceptional or ordinary practitioners like me, validity for what? How many such pointing out webcasts does it take? 5, 10, 20?

Simply by saying that, is saying it’s a gradual path. It’s not an essence teaching. So why not just admit I’m using Gampopa’s four yogas system, as set forth in his Explanation. In which case - what are the pointing out webcasts for anymore?

This isn’t a new idea of course. Ever since Tilopa re-introduced the whole idea that even Mahamudra needs samadhi teachings first.

YMMV.

Tedium is ignorance. DW is a public service to provide rubber-necking.

That's quite an interesting idea, if it is referring to this dharmawheel forum?

You mean that people here are "staring at something of interest"?

Like at a pop star ?

Or like people that stop their car when seeing a bad car accident and
even record the injured smashed people with their smartphones ?

Why are you in here then?

There must be something about it, I am even a little bit curious ---

just a tiny bit, though.

To eat the little lambs.

They taste better than the tough old sheep.

Without death what need is there for love?

The instant of terror, rage and despair in the pit of the stomach is the wish-fulfilling jewel.
