Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

My daughter is interesting in ChNN- I gave her Crystal and Dzogchen to read
She was looking forward to this
"No webcast, no translation, no 'assistants' (?)"

Re: Commitment...?

Is it too late for me to weigh in with my 2 cents? If it is not too late this sounds like an excellent teacher and an excellent program of the basic practices of Sakya (missing an important one, however) If you have concerns about the expectations on the part of the teacher for putting the practices...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I would be very surprised to learn that Tara Mandala did not have some sort of work-study or sponsor arrangement. YOu should contact them. They might also be able to help you with the shrine preparations. For mother tantra the stack-up on the shrine is usually a bit more elaborate than just the sind...

Re: Seriously approaching Semde on ones own

There is an interesting text which also follows this Semde contemplation sequence, only from a more Kagyu perspective, but seemingly inspired by Semde It is the Khams Lugs Semde text from the Dam.ngag.dzod. I just started translating it for myself. Oddly, it seems to be the same text as this mahamud...

Re: Seriously approaching Semde on ones own

That Introduction to the State of Contemplation is, IMHO, the best little manual on meditation I have ever seen. It is detailed but also condensed. It has all sorts of unusual and practical advice. Pairing that with some of the semdzins seems like a great way to go since they aim at the state of Nep...

Re: Seriously approaching Semde on ones own

and also:

https://www.amazon.com/Beauty-Awakened- ... 098340741X

which is also Nyang Lugs Semde - I think it is a commentary on the original text by Shigpo Dudtsi which Sogdogpa and Paltrul later commented on - but I'm not sure

Maybe someone here knows

Re: Tulku Sang.ngag R.; Nyingtig Yabzhi and Longchen Nyingtig; Santa Fe NM; Nov. 1 thru Nov.10 2019

But to answer your question the list of empowerments represents the main practices contained within the 'dharma cycle' of the Longchen Nyingtig. They include absolutely everything and are a complete path to enlightenment. Depending on your situation you Guru would plot a path through all of this bas...

Hevajra Cause and Path

I have received a two-day Hevajra empowerment on three separate occasions, but have never received Lam Dre. Each empowerment had a body mandala. I used to know the difference between the Cause and the Path Hevajra but I've forgotten. Does anyone know this and can share it without going into specifics?

Re: Chod Damaru vs standard Damaru

Is it permissible to use a chod damaru for any practice/ceremony such as Throma or other deity practices? (Assuming one has the necessary transmissions for the practices.) I was under the impression that Throma practice is a chod practice. My impression is that the question is "Is it permissible to...
