Yes, I know that, T. Chokyi. What I didn't catch was his description of what CCD did after receiving a new terma.

Frustration ... my Internet commitment is intermittent and I have been trying for well over a year to get the telecommunication company to fix this. Sometimes the connection is fairly stable, but lately it has been extremely unstable. This makes it difficult, but not impossible, to follow the webcasts: frustrating, but not impossible because one can access replays. Today, however, it has been particularly frustrating giving that the purpose of this particular session has been the Donwang, and my connection has cut repeatedly and for fairly long periods in the course of the Dongwang. Presumably, given that it is a Dongwang, I cannot "fill the gaps" as it were by relying on the replays, though I tried to follow in real time as best as I could in the circumstances. In turn, this presumably means that I cannot apply the particular teachings. It has left me feeling somewhat heartsore.
Dukkham eva hi, na koci dukkhito,
kaarako na, kiriyaa va vijjati,
atthi nibbuti, na nibbuto pumaa,
maggam atthi, gamako na vijjati


Suffering there certainly is, but no sufferer,
no doer, though certainly the deed is found.
peace is achieved, but no-one's appeased,
the way is walked, but no walker's to be found.

Malcolm as well as Rinpoche confirmed this during the Dorje Drolod webcast, however, Rinpoche gave the Dorje Drolod donwang briefly a second time because people online were feeling very stressed about it.

Sally,

As much as possible, if you do not follow the inevitable thoughts and feelings of frustration that arise when the webcast cuts out, then you will remain in the state with Rinpoche. It is not important to hear his voice at every moment. It is more important to not get lost in the arising of your mind. Not getting lost in your own arisings will allow you to be with him automatically when the webcast resumes and you can hear his voice.

No worries.

I am well aware of my idiocy. I am also very aware that you too are an idiot. Therein lies our mutuality.

to complete other's good answers ... and as far as you've received the explanations on what's going on and how is declined the process, you can feel the gaps still being present with the master.

Sally,
There is nothing wrong with writing to ChNN and asking him about this. It is very important to you and sometimes only the Teacher's reassurance will calm things down. And don't think you are 'bothering' him, he is very kind.

Anyone managed to write down the mantra for the Zhitro Khordas Rangdrol today? Please pm me, thanks!

My internet is intermittent today, did CNN give a lung of the jangchog practice? Or is it enough just to have the Donwang?

LZ TAKHYUNG KILAYA (Dark Blue Garuda combined with other deities and with a Kilaya lower body):

Rinpoche has very kindly clarified a couple of aspects of this practice for me via email, including the mantra.

I'll be glad to share his advice with anyone in the DC who has received that transmission (I'll send via PM).

Thank you Rinpoche. :) _/\_
