DC question that may be of interest to the general reader:

I was reminded this week that the mandala used in Vajra Dance also represents two hemispheres of this earth (northern and southern). Somewhere there exists a projection map of this mandala over a map of our globe, representing the intersections of different kinds of energies in different places on earth (as it was explained to me). Does anyone have an image of this globe available that is large enough to read? I'm asking because I'd like to understand better how the different DC gars came to be sited where they are sited, for instance.

thanks.

It has me thinking that the Philippine Islands may be an interesting spot to explore. I'm not entirely familiar with how to read the map--I get that the colors represent the elements, but getting at how their intersections work is another matter.

Today's retreat info:

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu will teach from what is considered to be the most important of all Dzogchen texts. Dra Thalgyur (sgra thal ‘gyur) is the abbreviated title of the Dzogchen Upadesha Tantra named rin po che 'byung bar byed pa sgra thal 'gyur chen po'i rgyud. Guru Garab Dorje re-transmitted this tantra about 300 years before Jesus was born.

The Dra Thalgyur has 6 chapters with a total of 168 questions & answers in about 200 folios. These questions include everything we always wanted to know about Dzogchen but did not know how to ask. It is the most important Dzogchen text but it is very difficult and condensed. During a period of about 3 years, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu edited 2 editions of Vimalamitra's commentary on the Dra Thalgyur. Korde Randrol ('khor 'das rang grol) means the self-liberation of samsara and nirvana. We are very fortunate that Chögyal Namkhai Norbu will transmit these profound teachings in this "open to everyone" webcast !!!
