Hi Dronma,

I was under the impression that anything from the following (new) book and two DVD's can be practiced without Transmission:

http://www.yantrayoga.org/tibetan-yoga- ... available/

http://www.yantrayoga.org/store3/books/ ... ntra-yoga/

That is because the above (new) book and two DVD's don't show any of the advanced Pranayama's etc.

Ok so do I have to buy the new book? Or can I use the old one and just not practice the pranayama for each series?

When the stuff is taught by authorized teachers, they'll frequently do up through the Eight Movements for everyone, but anything past that requires transmission. On the other hand, if you can buy it on amazon.com, chances are you won't be struck by lightening if you try to practice it, since that decision had to come from Rinpoche. The thing is, it's awfully hard to know if you're doing it right unless you've learned it through an authorized teacher. If you ever get a chance to get kumbhaka from Fabio, you'll know exactly what that means. Some things come through doing the practice as it's described, and some things come through transmission. Both can have value, but both together is the ideal.

Rinpoche teaches Mandarava a lot as a long-life practice, but he makes the point when he does that the real goal of any practice is realization. That's more true with Yantra than many other things. Learn Yantra, learn kumbhaka, familiarize yourself with the natural state.

I'm not really interested in yantra yoga, but I am interestd in pranayama. Does it take a really long time and lots of breathing to have any effect. I see fairly strong statements that it is a practice that will definitely bring you to the state of ati (or something... I forgot and can't google it right now). But, in the Pure Land forum, I saw someone said it didn't really do much for him. I figure there is either a way to breathe that does something very noticeable and which is so potentially dangerous that it is secret (which is what I want to learn)... or it's actually more about how good you are at visualizing channels and focusing for long periods of time on your breathing before you notice anything remotely different from the ordinary about how you feel and your awareness.

Through Dzogchen we can really understand what God is and we don’t have to worry if there is a God or not. God always exists as our real nature, the base, for everybody. - Chögyal Namkhai Norbu
