Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche's Mo Divination

Postby Mr. G » Sun Jun 27, 2010 5:54 pm

Does anyone else here have ChNN's Mo divination book? The writing seems to be rather poor in describing how to use one's mala to cast a mo divination. Can anyone here give advice? Does anyone know if there's a private forum or email list for ChNN's students where I can ask this?

Hey magnus,

Yeah, unfortunately the directions seem a bit vague. Guess I'll have to wait till I have the opportunity to ask someone who knows. I'd really like to know how it's properly done.

Divination depends on your closeness to the deity.

This thread could have easily been created in:

"Exploring Buddhism"
"Vajrayana Buddhism"
"Personal Experience"
"Lounge"

Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche teaches Dzogchen and the topic is about a book written by him. I wasn't concerned about splitting hairs when posting this thread.

First of all, this Dzogchen forum is already under "Vajrayana Buddhism" forum. You just need to decide if this MO book belongs to which lineage of vajrayana buddhism (or Bon). I haven't heard there is MO teaching in any Dzogchen tantra or terma. I thought as a Dzogchen practitioner, one should give up all hopes and fears about future? :rolling:

Don't get me wrong, I think MO is useful and I would be interested learning virous kinds of MO texts. I was just imaging some new comers might confuse the difference between Dzogchen teaching and a certain group called Dzogchen. It could be splitting hairs, but if a MO teaching is not Dzogchen teaching, it won't become Dzogchen teaching just because a Dzogchen master wrote it.

Anyway not a big deal, not too many people come to this site anyway :tongue:

I haven't seen the book, although I think I know how people 'normally' using mala beads to MO, in Nyingma or Sakya tradition. Not sure if that would be useful for you.

Like I said, it's not a big deal.

Besides, there is no mention where the divination originates from. However, there is a section in the beginning of the book which is quite telling that it is more Dzogchen, than general Vajrayana or Bon.
