In addition, Rinpoché also says that if you did'nt realize the nature of your mind, there is no real sens to do Guru Yoga ... therefore you have no samaya just because you listen to a teaching.

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

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.

From what I understand so far, with Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, if he is specifically giving Dzogchen teachings live, and you intend to participate and receive the Transmission, then he always intends that you receive it. In other words, if you're attending live Dzogchen teachings from him and you intend to receive Direct Introduction, then you will receive the Transmission regardless of the impact it had on you. If you don't think you fully discovered what Rigpa is during the teaching, then you practice Rushen and/or Semdzin's. Of course there are many Dzogchen methods for Direct Introduction, namely Mind-to-Mind, Symbolic, and Oral.

Is there a difference between empowerments and transmission?

I think it also depends on the person who is introducing someone to the webcast.
For instance, it would be pretty unlikely at this point for me to recommend a webcast to someone other than family and friends who will be engaged in discussion with me in regards to what is going on with the webcast.
If they express interest, I am happy to facilitate but I want to make sure that they are going to take it seriously.
I love Rinpoche,his message, the DC, and my vajra siblings and I take those connections very seriously.
Its important to me that those who are connected through my relationship with them respect the power of this relationship

Thanks Sönam, that would be good to know.

If I'm not mistaken, Rinpoche has implied that through the practice of Guru Yoga we can discover our Real Nature, that is, even if we don't fully discover during the Direct Introduction.

Although maybe what you've said here does not suggest otherwise. But only that if one didn't discover the Nature of Mind, then there is no Samaya. In other words, even if the candidate did not fully discover during the Direct Introduction, the seed of the Transmission is still planted so to speak, and so then one can either go on to keep trying to discover our Real Nature or not, without having any mandatory commitment to do so; but then as soon as one does discover the Nature of Mind, we at that point do have the Samaya to keep going on the Path until complete Liberation, yes?
