Re: Garchen Rinpoche - Hevajra Empowerment and 4 Dharmas of Gampopa

When HHK came to the women's retreat he gave them a list of things to study. One was the Hevajra Tantra, which supposedly Elizabeth Callahan was working on. However I just checked the Tsadra Foundation blurb on Callahan and there's no mention of it being in the works. So maybe it isn't true. I’ll a...

Re: A single sadhana or practice

Hello. Many of you have received multiple sadhana and practice empowerments; it seems some of you have received many indeed. I am just curious: if you were to restrict yourself to a single sadhana or practice, which would you choose and why? You have to restrict yourself to a single practice if you...

It is not a sadhana it's just stupidity. Maha-rime, right.

Re: Chokling Ati Zabdön Nyingthig

is anything known about that cycle? is it practiced/transmitted? Since it is a part of the Chokling Tersar it is transmitted. To me it looks like it is a Guru Drakpo practice.

Re: What happens after Ngondro? (Nyingma)

I'm doing WOMPT ngondro by the way. WOMPT is a commentary on the Longchen Nyingtik Ngondro. So if you do that Ngondro then Longchen Nyingtik is the cycle you practice. I hope you got the transmission for the Ngongdro text and then you should also request teachings on it from your teacher. https://w...

Re: Togden Shakya Shri extraordinary short teaching

which Dzogchen cycle's approach is outlined in this teaching by Togden Shakya Shri? Togden Shakya Shi received Dzogchen instructions mostly from Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, so this presentation is probably according to one of Khyentse's cycles/termas.. it is from the biography translated by late Elio ...

Well to me, yes that's too much, if it wasn't I would have also left if I considered my membership to be predicate on hearing the details of Rinpoche's death. I would have liked to hear more of course, but my membership isn't dependent on that. Just as I'm not going to cease my association and cont...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I always find these statements about the DCs lack of transparency a little strange. I certainly agree it could do with being more so, but very few organisations are particularly good at transparency, and Tibetan Buddhist sanghas some of the least of all. I actually find the DC to be more transparen...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Point taken. Truth be told, nothing of what I know about the response has been made public by the DC. And it is also fairly possible that the response, or the lack of it, was also due to our failure to communicate properly. It could explain, for instance, why there were (as far as I know ) no offic...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I think you can't be sure of that. A lot of people might have contacted the family without that being communicated to the community. I stopped paying my membership because during the months after Rinpoches death I didn't get any communication how Rinpoche died, who was present, what he said at that...

According to what I have been told, Rinpoche decided his body was to be embalmed.
I am not against it, I just don't understand why the students don't get informed.
