Now that I've been doing a lot of re-reading (prompted by desire to know details I was not interested in before), I am beginning to understand Namkhai Norbu's teaching methods/practices more, how they work, why they work, etc.
Is this a major part of actually getting them to work?
Let me clarify...
In the past, I put a little time into Purification of the Six Lokas practice and I briefly looked at Yantra Yoga. I recently got the Breathe DVD as well. All of these practices didn't interest me much because I couldn't really conceive of any benefit ever being produced by it for me. For others, sure. For me? Doubt it. Not interested. Now that I am beginning to understand the nature of energy/sound a little better, it seems like I could practice these things with perhaps the right kind of attention/focus that might be required to actually get anything out of them.
Am I right about this, or would I actually have received benefit just by doing things fairly blindly by rote?
