Of course, you're right, I just had no idea what Garchen Rinpoche says about it, that's the only reason I mentioned what my teacher says. And if Garchen Rinpoche says differently about his teaching, then I trust him, too, in regards to the teaching he is giving. I'm glad that you and others have helped me learn more about what he thinks and says about lungs and their necessity or lack of it.
Please, understand me, I'm new to this teacher, so I'm very confused. It's not like my purpose is to sow discord or anything. I was genuinely confused when I was writing those posts. And I'm grateful that you explained what you learnt from him.

True, but it's probable that there was a practice attached, isn't it? Rinpoche seemed to have trouble with his eyes and at one time he mentioned that he wouldn't read out a text because of it. That said, I tried to ask via email whether there was any shitro practice, but it seems that for now there's noone who can answer that for certain. I was asked to wait.Lhasa
