Can someone please share the link, or are there samaya issues? There are personal data issues for sure, as the file contains the names of the people who asked questions. Which is also kind of unnecessary, actually. There is also this specific sentence in the letter: Please consider that this is the...

Re: What is final nirvana in the Tibetan tradition?

Buddha's are not limited in any way and are completely aware. I'd be a little careful here. If Buddhas really were not limited in any way, we would all have been enlightened a long time ago. Buddhas are omniscient (know everything that's knowable) but not omnipotent. Omnipotence is a limitation.

Re: Five Elements in Reverse?

The teachings on liberation in the bardo discuss the dissolution of the elements (sort of a dense - to less - dense progression) from the earth element, then the water element, to the fire element, to the air element, and then, optionally, to space. I’m curious as to whether anyone knows if there i...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

The ball is entirely in the court of the Dzogchen Community as an official body. They have to make clear and must make clear what their vision is, what the way forward is. No more waiting. No more keeping things within the four walls of tired bureaucracy. Well, yes, if there are any directives. If ...

"As for the commotion of so-called Dharma centers,
If useful, I establish them as foundations of the Teaching.
If not, I try to reduce attachment and aversion as much as possible.
You who enjoy Dharma centers, do as you please."

Re: Sten Anspal thesis question

As I don't read Tibetan well at all can you write how their names are pronounced?

Re: Nyingmapas who don't practice Dzogchen?

Yeah, Rongzom, Longchenpa and Mipham give a Dzogchen explanation of it. Does anyone know if there are any translations of the Zur explanations of it? IIRC Luminous Essence is the Zur way. It isn't. That's Mipham's in line with Longchenpa's and Rongzom's. https://www.berotsana.org/collections/guhyag...

Re: Validity of online empowerments

Yes, kind of similar to the wwt transmission. Basically every deity retreat he did there was a donwang, Mandarava, Ayu Khandro's Singhmukha, Changchub Dorje's Shitro and so on. Donwang's is just a visualisation, then Rinpoche did tri-lung for the sadhana. /magnus mm i thought the wang component was...

Thanks guys I have ordered Cortland Dahl's book and will be satisfied with that, I'm sure!

Re: Tara Mandala Open Webcast Transmission with Dorje Lopön Chandra Easton (Riwo Sangchöd, Chöd, Green Tara)

Based on the list in the main Dzogchen Community thread, she does not have permission to give those practices from ChNN. Only Tsultrim Allione has this. Has this changed since 2016? It's a good question. At https://www.taramandala.org/product/chod-of-chogyal-namkhai-norbu-rinpoche/ it says " Lama T...
