I do suggest here the knowing of the existence of Longde in ZZNG or ZZKY?
There are no mentions of the expressions "Semdé", "Longdé" or "Mengakdé" in ZZNG. What is ZZKY?


Tashi delek,

Thanks for your replies.

- ZZKY would be ZZ Kagyud.

Tashi delek,

ZZKY would be the oral tradition. (in a broader sense, like teached today for a group of more than 9 persons)
ZZNG would be the single line tradition. (in a single transmission sense)

Ah, ok. I thought it has something to do with the kagyü lineage (i.e. kagyü school), so I was a little bit confused...

Sorry KY but it's not like this.

ZZNG is a collective name for :
1. Kagyu Korzhi which are the four main cycles (or texts and complementary texts) of the collection, and
2. Nyamgyu or the experiential transmission.

In other explanations you'd have the ZZNG divided into :
1. Ngak-chok — tantric instructions and
2. Semchok — dzogchen instructions.

Ngakchok has several subdivisions centered around Meri practices.
Semchok is divided into : 1. ZZNG proper (i.e. the Kagyu Korzhi), and 2. Nyamgyu.

As far as I know the expression "ZZ Kagyu" does not exist. Moreover, Kagyu Korzhi and Nyamgyu have line of transmission based on : 1. single transmission and 2. ordinary transmission (the contents are exactly the same, the difference being if you're meant to be a lineage holder or not).

When talking about ZZNG, one generally refers to the Kagyu Korzhi. Otherwise, one refers to the entire collection (of ngakchok+semchok) but this is highly unlikely to be done.

How much has been translated from the Semchok part of the ZZNG? And has the snyan rgyud rgyal ba'i phyag khrid been translated already?

Tashi delek,

Everybody thanks for the replies.

I see that JL does' t agree with the translation of presence regarding Rigpa? Did realise there is also difference between Awareness used for Rigpa in Bon and Knowledge used in ChNN' s translation of Rigpa.

There are persons here aboard who defend that JL has critics against the use of Awareness for Rigpa and that he does prefer the use of presence above the use of Awareness.

But it would be also interesting to know more about the other critics / other points of view, against ChNN.
It will mean that there are some persons who are not on 1 line with his Teachings.

For me personal Rigpa is Awareness like prefered in Bon and Nyingma and not Knowledge like translated in ChNN' s DC.

Honestly, rig pa is just a word. You either understand what it means or you don't.

Then you don't translate ... you take it as it already is.

Tashi delek,

The whole Dharma does consist out of only words.
It is the meaning of those words which is important but also the correct use of it.

And i see clearly that in Nyingma and Bon, there are words used in the same manner, which are not used like that somewhere else and that is for some of us very confusing / strange.

Tashi delek,

Seen in the light of study, different words can have different meanings.
Seen in the light of practice the words are experienced in their (understood) meaning.

It is not for nothing i guess, that persons like JL, would have problems with the accepting of "presence".

Because with a certain focus it sounds like a mind process ... with another focus it does'nt. But words in our different languages are charged with history and habits, so they could never answer the same way than the original one.

Tashi delek,

Well the topic is not so difficult to understand e.g. the use of words to explain a certain meaning.
The meaning is always reflected in the practice over and over again.
But if in the theory for instance the visions would be explained as knowing them then the confusing factor would be for instance knowing them by the mind of karma.

I don' t agree with you, words have a precise meaning in every language. No is no in every language.
