Re: What is Dzogchen?

It might be worth remembering that in some relatively elaborate parts of Nyingma tantra related to the 4 empowerments the term "mahamudra" is used in a way that has no particular connection to its mighty place in for instance Kagyu practice. Context, as ever, is all. Thank you for your reply. It co...

Re: What is Dzogchen?

I have realized that I actually have no idea. Specifically, how does Tantra fit into the Dzogchen path? I know that you will find Tantra in Dzogchen but it seems like Dzogchen is not necessarily Dzogchen. What exactly is the interplay here? Also, what does the term “Mahamudra” mean in a Dzogchen co...

Re: What is Dzogchen?

I have realized that I actually have no idea. Excellent. Now find a proper teacher and ignore answers you might find in the fever swamps of the internet. I appreciate the sentiment, although that would mean I would have to ignore this answer as well. To be honest, Malcolm, i was really hoping to be...

Hayagriva Phurba?

Hello friends, I have noticed that Hayagriva almost never holds a phurba in his depictions, yet there are such objects as Hayagriva Phurbas. I’m wondering about the extent of the relationship between the phurba and Hayagriva practice. Does Hayagriva practice always involve a phurba? Is he considered...

Re: Info on Khandro Nyingthig

The Khandro Nyingthig and the Vima Nyingthig from the Nyingthig Yabshi are deeper practices than the standard Nyingthiks one enters after ngon.dro. What I have been taught is that you first go through doing the maha, anu and ati practices of, say. the Longchen Nyingthik first, then one moves onto e...
