Rainbow body - New book

Postby heart » Tue Dec 14, 2010 5:49 am

A new book by Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche

http://www.wisdom-books.com/ProductDetail.asp?PID=22489

I found it quite wonderful. An interesting detail is that Togden Urgyen Tendzin did 11 million prostrations and at least a full three year retreat on the Longchen Nyinthik Guru Yoga.

Let's also do a prayers for Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche that right now is in a hospital in Brazil.

We are all here to help each other go through this, whatever it is.
~Kurt Vonnegut

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
- Longchenpa

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

-Longchenpa

This books looks wonderful! Thanks heart!
    How foolish you are,
    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!

Thanks Magnus for pointing to this reference! And yes, we should all pray for Rinpoche these days! :bow:

Finally got around to getting it. Very interesting.
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.
