Re: Greetings and Request for Guidance

Few genuine teachers decide to give DI online. One is Garchen Rinpoche (https://garchen.net/annual-events/), and you are fairly certain to get DI (alongside liberating instructions) from him in the form of the fourth empowerment, whenever he gives a wang. The next one is in September: https://garch...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Rinpoche literally pleaded with us constantly to treat each other well, to have pure vision and give the benefit of the doubt. I certainly don't see this when people are quick to indict Yeshi based on a few things they've heard second hand. This will have absolutely no effect on him or the situatio...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I rewatched the movie yesterday, as I was reminded of it by the latest posts, it's nice. It does not really bring up people creating problems though, as far as I could tell, It focuses on Yeshi's relationship with his father and his struggle with being a tulku. ChNN's cancer was directly related to...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

To equate not having a public forum with secrecy doesn't make sense, we are open and transparent within its members, not to the public. Right, and so why do Yeshe threaten to sue anyone that talks about what happened on a meeting with 500 people? That isn't very transparent in my eyes. /magnus Pard...

Re: LN Ngondro requirements

As someone who doesn't know much about Nyingma I wonder why such questions are posed online instead of addressing directly the teacher or the students of the teacher who gave the practice. Whenever I saw such practice-concerning questions online the answers differed widely even within the same trad...

I received a surprise lung for the LN Ngondro During a weekend of teachings last year.

Re: Practicing without possibility of physical contact with teacher

Lama Lena is giving a teaching on May 1 on FB which will include pointing out (as per usual) I believe. No fee, just Dana - so no problem. After that you can watch/listen to her and Lama Wangdor’s teachings on her website. So just “join” or “follow” (or whatever the term is) The Lama Lena Teachings ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

For the time being, though, it does seem that he is not offering to lead those who had transmission from ChNN. Therefore talk of him leading the whole DC community is at best way too early to be meaningful. I agree it’s too early to speculate meaningfully about Yeshi’s plans, but I don’t know if I ...

Re: It is supposed to be simple and easy

Its easy as long as we’re naturally not-distracted, without effort, judgements, striving or cultivation. Speaking for myself though, it’s easier for me to get distracted than almost anything else.

Apparently there are three people who Rinpoche gave permission to transmit dzogchen:his son, his daughter and a guy in China.

Re: What Does Dzogchen Say About It’s Origins?

Ah...you equate myth with fairytale. They are very different. Myth can come from the depths, from the chthonic. From ancient and formative times. To describe something as mythic does not mean that it is unreal, on the contrary it can mean hyper real, energised and powerful. If you assert that myths...
