What does an open webcast mean? Is it open to anyone with web access, or just DC members? If the open webcast is for DC members, wouldn't I still need to log in?
What about archived teachings? Does DC membership give me permission to view them? Don't I still need to be able to log in to do that? Who would I contact to get some kind of general guidance as to most appropriately utilize ChNN's archived teachings? There's a wealth of material, from what I gather, and I am not sure how to tailor my viewing and study for my specific situation.
Thanks for your help.
I'm abysmally ignorant about the mechanics of viewing webcasts with mobile devices -- I take it that you refer to cellphones. Open webcasts: these are open to anyone in principle, provided of-course that you have a device (a computer, or perhaps an iPad) which allows you to view the webcast. The setups I use need Adobe Flash Player to work , as I discovered; but if you have suitable hardware and software, no password is needed to view the webcast. Closed webcasts, by contrast, require a user-name and password, obtainable by DC members, and these are needed to log on to the closed webcasts. I am fairly sure that the user-name and password are also needed to view Rinpoche's archived webcasts. I hope that this helps.
Dukkham eva hi, na koci dukkhito,
kaarako na, kiriyaa va vijjati,
atthi nibbuti, na nibbuto pumaa,
maggam atthi, gamako na vijjati
Suffering there certainly is, but no sufferer,
no doer, though certainly the deed is found.
peace is achieved, but no-one's appeased,
the way is walked, but no walker's to be found.
