How does on go about getting pointing out in the Dzogchen Community? I saw there is a retreat in Merigar from 14th to 20th of this month with a webcast. Where can I sign-up or listen to the webcasts? http://www.shangshunginstitute.net/webcast/video.php
Now, if I don't recognize during pointing-out through the webcast, do I then have automatic permission to practice the methods to recognize?
You said they are the Lojongs, Semdzins and Rushens, right? Are there more? How do I know how to practice them? Does DC have teachers available who can help or how does this work?
Yes, there are teachers of SMS who teach Rinpoche's Precious Vase. You can study with them.
Is it possible to purchase and practice the Semdzins, Rushens, etc. booklet having received pointing out from other masters?
No, in order to purchase any restricted book, one must be a member of the DC. That is not so expensive and has many benefits.
So, basically, how should a newcomer to the DC go about his way?
You should listen to webcast, see if ChNN inspires you. If so, become a member of DC in your local region. By books for practices that interest you. Learn them well. In particular, you must buy Precious Vase. As well as sadhana book called the Thun Book.
