Postby catlady2112 » Wed Jun 04, 2014 6:18 pm

Does anyone recommend qualified female teachers of Mahamudra and Dzogchen meditation/teachings?

Lama Pema and Lama Yeshe, in Ashland, OR, get my "seal of approval" for what it's worth.

We are all here to help each other go through this, whatever it is.
~Kurt Vonnegut

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
- Longchenpa

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

-Longchenpa

I can't say anything about her level of realization per se, but Lama Willa is a translator, has done 7 NgonDros, a couple 3 year retreats, has taught a 3 year retreat, and has a PhD. in Tibetan Studies from Harvard. Plus she's a very nice person.

1 Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

2 If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

3 Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

4 With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

I agree with Cone. These are my teachers and I am presently studying Mahamudra meditation with Lama Yeshe.

If you are in Europe, especially in Sweden, you should try to meet Druponma Konchog Khandro Rinpoche, she is the real deal and master of both mahamudra and dzogchen:
