My comments are at the bottom.
The image I used was the famous Blue Pearl, the first color image of the globe take from space.(Oh Lord, now someone is going to accuse me of subverting Dzogchen with Siddha Yoga's blue pearl meditation)/
I'm a survivor of the infamous Siddha Yoga guru wars, and the last time the blue pearl flashed at me I just said, "Yeah, big deal, what have you done for me lately?"
Here's to finding a Teacher who really gives a ....!
Dear Lhasa and ALL,
To the bums of in-satiate whores! (Please don't be offended - I am just quoting, and Dzogchen includes tantra.) http://www.amazon.com/Anthology-Buddhis ... 9748299341
The pussycat's roar,
Dzogchen / smogchen - what the world needs is a good momo sandwich
It is NOT just a question of what have you done for me lately, but what are you going to do for me tomorrow and the day after and for my children and their children?
If you feed a woman you have fed her for one day. If you teach her how to fish she will never go hungry.
Malcolm is right but we are NOT there yet.
It took 5000 years to get this far.
Sometimes creative folks write poetry about it.
This beam of light has been around since 1970 (notice how it turns into a round at the end).http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WiLsB-SOUY
This is a beam of light about beams of light (1901 so the English is a little formal, but the info is great).http://www.amazon.com/Cosmic-Consciousn ... 301&sr=1-1
The BIG Rimed needs to be looked at.
Please think of Garab Dorje pointing his finger at you as you read this written by one of the great Rimed Masters of this century.http://www.quietmountain.org/links/teac ... onsect.htm
The real question is where do you (each of you) want to go from here?
You are the future of Dzogchen!
Hi Oldbob, I just found your reply. I'm a newcomer to Dzogchen and the language of Tibetan Buddhism. So I get lost alot with oldtimer-speak.
So what is the first link on tantric songs about?
My reference to the blue pearl, was oldtimer sy speak, referring to the fact that realization was not the goal in sy and the blue pearl was just another hook to keep the sheeple in line. So I was poking at the phony gurus trying to link up again with the blue pearl. It wasn't what they did 'for' me, it was what they did 'to' me. I should have been more clear.
"The pussycat's roar." ??? lost me...
Moody Blues link...ah yes,
What is the big Rimed?
The beam of Light, listen to this voice, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53bqHUER ... ure=relmfu
For me, the Song of Vajra is that beam, also listening to Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche sing. It's when the beam starts vibrating the outer samsaric appearances, that things get exciting.
Hmm, that wall, it's not just a wall anymore...seems to be glowing...
