By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

The same guy is also responsible of that

Does all that helps the dharma to be spreaded?

Is the DC and Yeshe really involved in all that?

What's wrong with it, especially if ChNN approves? ChNN and Yeshe aren't involved personally in the video, they just gave him their blessings anyway.

It's a nice video.Intention is most important & he seems genuine in his intentions. One can incorporate any mundane activity or even other paths into Dzogchen as long as they do not contravene the basic principles of Dzogchen specially with regards to other sentient beings. His dancing has hints of heavy metal air guitar & head shaking but the style seems mainly to be that of Tibetan folk dances, like the woman but more so, without him being aware of it. Years ago Yeshi made a piece of electronic midi music file Reggae style and asked everyone what they thought. They all said it is a nice piece of original creation. He told them it was not his. Rinpoche was the only one who immediately told him that it is a nice electronic version of the melody of the song of Vajra.
Dzogchen masters I know say: 1)Buddhist religion essence is Dzogchen 2)Religions are positive by intent/fruit 3)Any method's OK unless: breaking Dzogchen vows, mixed as syncretic (Milanese Soup) 4)Don't join mandalas of opponents of Dalai Lama/Padmasambhava: False Deity inventors by encouraging victims 5)Don't debate Ati with others 6)Don't discuss Ati practices online 7) A master told his old disciple: no one's to discuss his teaching with some others on a former forum nor mention him. Publicity's OK, questions are asked from masters/set teachers in person/email/non-public forums~Best wishes

If you are so concerned with that and doubt his statement, then ask ChNN. The basic melody is still there and the words themselves will plant the seeds for liberation for anyone who hears it.

Hi Sonam, I am on the move and only saw this one on the phone which seems OK.

His other videos are all related to Dharma themes, I really don't see what is objectionable.

Ok, as it seems absolutely not out of context for most of you ...
