A nice resource for audio files, videos and some texts relating to Dzogchen.

Thank you for that ressource ... but some texts (for example Naturally Liberated Mind fy Longchen Rabjam) are photocopies of books (in this case The Practice of Dzogchen).

I will recommand NOT to download them ! ... if already downloaded, to have the spontaneity to delete them

Why not? Are there copyright issues? Or is this a matter of Vajrayana initiations or something like that?

If it's photocopies of books, and that the case, of course it's a matter of copyright ... but also of respect of those who have written/commented/translated those books ... from what they can continue to spread the dharma if some just copy there work ?

In the case presented (and I did'nt want to go further) copyright is Tulku Thondup Rinpoche ...

Is it clear enough ?

nb : And it seems it's against the rules of Dharma Wheel

I'm not the owner of that site, and I don't really want to delve into a discussion about dharma and copyright, but if the moderators here think that the link should be removed, I will respect this decision, of course.

A great Dzogchen resource is ones teacher. Not a copyright infringing website.

the concerned website is wuala.com, not a teacher ... and the incriminated download is this one
