I'm very interested in watching the webcasts for this retreat. I might join the Dzogchen Community for this purpose. I have attended teachings and watched webcasts before and had some contact with DC members in my area. I'm a little undecided as to whether it is okay to join just for one teaching. How easy is it to join and how much of a commitment is it? Can one leave when one wants or is there a minimum period when one must be a member; a year, for example? I'm not saying that I plan to only join for a short period, but I was just wondering.

I've received a Dorje Drollo empowerment and attended group practice, but I've never received much teaching on it, and I would like to understand the practice better and I hope this would be a good way to do that.

I've been interested in the discussion here and understand that the practice carries certain risks, particularly if you use Dorje Drollo as an extension of your ego rather than to subdue it. Is there more to the danger than this? All yidams must carry some risk if "devine pride" is confused with ordinary pride, I suppose.

Previously, on E-Sangha, Namdrol said that Drollo is the most appropriate yidam for this time. I think he was quoting Kunzang Dechen Lingpa. Is Drollo's wrathfulness the reason for this? I was also wondering why he is not practiced more by Nyingma monasteries and groups. Vajrakilaya seems to be most widely practiced in Nyingma circles for wrathful purposes but if Drollo is more wrathful why not him?

Also, Namdrol, you previously mentioned translating a Drollo namthar. Have you managed to do this and is it available?

thanks.

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.

Looking forward to this retreat. The TBRC Adzom Drukpa Drollo files are quite substantial.
This should be a very interesting retreat of a very powerful practice.

Are there wrathful emanations of Guru Rinpoche that are not Dorje Drolo?

heehee, I should do this retreat just so you can all see just how bad the results can be... but, seriously, thanks again for the info. Will steer clear of this one for sure.

Oh, well according to the UK website, cheque and standing order are the only two ways to pay. Maybe other places differ? I was hoping for a totally automated system so I could join last minute, maybe like Dharmasun or something.

Have you tried to join through Merigar (West) directly MichaelB? They should have Paypal.

Thanks, I'll give it a go. I'm thinking I've just left it too late. I was undecided whether to join and the DC membership system seems to have decided for me, which may not be a bad thing.
