Longsal Atii Gongpa Ngotrod retreat
Tenerife, October 26th - 30th, 2012
The Upadesha of Introduction to the State of Ati (A ti'i dgongs pa ngo sprod kyi man ngag) written down in 1983, is an extraordinary teaching of the great lotsava Vairochana (VIII century) introducing the authentic principle of Atiyoga or Dzogpa Chenpo, in particular presenting essential instructions on the Four Contemplations of Semde and on the fundamental aspects of primordial purity (ka dag) and self-perfection (lhun grub). The dreams through which the upadesha was discovered are connected to the master Vairochana himself, to the author's root guru Rigdzin Chang-chub Dorje (1826-1961) and to his uncle Khyentse Rinpoche Chökyi Wangchug (1910-1963), who was also one of his main teachers.

In my book a lineage holder is someone that can transmit that lineage.

Ahhh, so there must be a different term for designated Teachers/Lamas as transmitters of their lineage. As in holding the power, authority and ability to give those teachings. Lineage holder in that case means something different.
ChNN had some interesting things to say about 'long lineage' and 'short lineage' in the Avalokiteshvara retreat. How important it is to treat those who receive transmission with us in a good way. And what happens if we don't. I wish he'd do a full retreat on that topic alone.

Apparently there are 2 books both called Rainbow Body, the Life and realization of Togden Ugyen Tendzin. One was released in sept 2010 and another is about to be released in Dec. Does anybody know if there is any difference between the two?
