The reason I recommended the above books, is because the Dzogchen Teachings state that even if one didn't recognize during the Direct Introduction; one has still received the Transmission regardless, and can do practices related to Transmission on one's own after the Direct Introduction (such as Ngondro, Rushen, Semdzin, and of course Guru Yoga; and/or any practice that requires a specific Lung transmission that is as long as one has received the related Lung transmission for it). Rinpoche often says this as well.
In fact, Rinpoche gives teachings on the Five Capacities, and has said if we are missing any of the Five Capacities that we can work on developing them:http://www.melong.com/it/teachings/40-d ... f-all.html
Also about receiving Transmission via Direct Introduction, and don't quote me on this, I believe that as long as one at least has the First Capacity (Participation or Interest); then that alone is sufficient for having received the Direct Introduction, even if one didn't recognize during the Direct Introduction.
About the Guru and Direct Introduction, this is interesting to know:
There are four gurus: the guru who gives you introduction is the outer guru; the path practiced is the inner guru; the result realized is the secret guru; rigpa is the ultimate guru;
But without the first, the rest will not happen.
Some books are downloadable (you have to be a Dzogchen Community member and/or have received Transmission for ordering/downloading reserved/restricted books):http://www.shangshungstore.org/index.ph ... _list&c=19http://www.shangshungstore.org/index.ph ... w&p=public
If there aren't many or any books available in your language, maybe you can use Google-translate for the downloadable English or Italian books.
P.S., TO THE MODERATORS:
Did anyone get my PM's about this thread???
I'd say too that this thread belongs in the Dzogchen sub-forum.
