I dont mean to be a pest but if one is already doing Guru Tragphur what would the difference/benefit be from doing this practice?

The teachings start for me at 6AM. I am lucky enough to be able to tune in and head off to work.
Whoo!


Ah, you're lucky Nangwa!

Hey Fa,
I think the actual difference is probably pretty minimal. Drollo will have some other functions and might be more powerful for removing some certain obstacles.
Hopefully Rinpoche will touch on your question during the retreat.

Drollo is more connected with Dzogchen explicitly.

I have a PC and just switched over to Chrome from Firefox. Chrome works better for me.

A few days ago when the webcast was closed I downloaded the file. I just now downloaded the newer file and the primary mantra has a one word addition, (dont want to repeat it in open forum) which one do I use?

I downloaded the file yesterday. Following along with the webcast, it seemed to match. Perhaps Namdrol or Nangwa can comment on this.

Use the later one. The earlier one had a typo.

oops..almost forgot to ask...I am still a little fuzzy on the purpose and use of "action" mantras...would someone mind explaining?

Anyone got the "dokpa" and can share it?

I doubt it was the same, it sounded drollo related to me.

I woke up for the start and put headphones on and then fell back asleep eventually and Norbu was in my dream giving the teaching and when he started the transmission Ron Paul was there repeating everything he said in deep voice overtone chanting, and his hair looked like docs from back to the future, it was pretty epic.

Will the text that ChNNR read from and explained today be made available?

Also, will members be able to replay the webcasts?
