In the book the Supreme Source on pg. 198, section 53. The Chapter That Demonstrates That the Nature of All Phenomena is the Immovable State, it talks about the 10 Dolungs of which there are 5 sets of 10. Where can one find this list? Has it even been translated into English? Sounds like it would be useful to have an understanding of this.

No problem Fa, the meaning is very deep and takes time.

I know the feeling! I have had the most trouble with this book out of all of ChNN's books. This one also causes the most "aha" moments, probably. But, then I forget them in what seems like minutes.

I think it is normal for most people. If I have to consider myself according to what I remember from the teachings I have received and read, the result will be nothing at all. Hence I have to believe that I am totally stupid - which is also a possibility. :rolleye:
But I do not worry, because realization has to do with one's experience, and not with words!
Except if somebody has the karma to teach others as scholar, which I don't have for sure! :mrgreen:

and words come out when (really) necessary ... depending on circumstances
