Can someone PM me with the short invocation of Odzer Chenma and her mantra?
I would appreciate it.

There is a possible change in circumstance and this would help me a lot.

Thank you.

The everyday practice of dzogchen is just everyday life itself. Since the undeveloped state does not exist, there is no need to behave in any special way or attempt to attain anything above and beyond what you actually are. There should be no feeling of striving to reach some "amazing goal" or "advanced state."
To strive for such a state is a neurosis which only conditions us and serves to obstruct the free flow of Mind. We should also avoid thinking of ourselves as worthless persons - we are naturally free and unconditioned. We are intrinsically enlightened and lack nothing.

What is the CD containing the melodies of all these mantras and practices?

Is it the Ritual Melodies CD?

Didn't Rinpoche mention a CD at the end of the last webcast?

Is there a connection between natural disasters and spirits of that place?

I heard CNNR saying something about the fact that if there are lots of problems in a country that is to do with local guardians...being provoked or something like that.
I wonder if that is true when it comes to natural disasters?

I understand that for a dzogchen practitioner having some concrete experience based on their practice is very important.
But one needs to know whether these experiences are errors or something which is natural and expected if certain practices are employed.

What is the way of gaining some clarity as to what is happening?

Somebody was sugesting that before going any further one should eliminate any possible material causes to these experiences by checking whether they are in good health or having an ear or eye exam for example....
