Are Shambhala and Tergar respected by other tantric lineages

Postby willimon7 » Wed Apr 30, 2014 9:23 am

Hey all,

I am interested in pursuing the tantric path (with time of course).

Both Shambhala (as founded by Chogyam Trungpa) and Tergar (as founded by Mingyur Rinpoche) claim to eventually offer their students tantric initiation. Are these groups respected by other tantric lineages/teachers? Does either group ever actually teach students all the way throuh the six yogas of naropa? Is it worth all the money?

Thanks for any wisdom or experience you may have to share.
