"Please bookmark this site and check back when our teachings begin."

From my original post, I take this to mean that the live link will be on that page when the teachings are to begin. Hope so.


This page has been updated with a page for the live webcast. :twothumbsup:

It is not productive to cite imperatives from other teachers in contrast to the teachings you have received from Garchen Rinpoche.

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.

Receiving empowerment is a practice in of itself.

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, thank you, great news! :smile:

Any yidam deity accomplishes the activities of all yidam deities, since their essence is identical. By extension any yidam deity practice...

On one of the White Tara videos, Garchen Rinpoche said that all he asked his students to do is White Tara. That that was his practice and he and White Tara had merged. He said that he knew people did not have the time to do the necessary practices like monastics do, so by doing the White Tara mantra, his students' minds are connected to his mind and they receive the benefits of his practice. As the Vajra Master, this was his responsibility, he would do the rest. :jawdrop:

Silly question, but how do you watch live? What's happening now is a recording.

The site states: You can "fast forward" to view live.

:thinking:

Hi, T. Chokyi,
Could we do one more pm? I have some dharma materials that need a qualified home, maybe you could help me find one?
