Re: Field

So, define what “energy field” means in this context. Is it like a fart? :roll: Anyway, there are different kinds of fields, Wei Qi field is one of them but I don't believe it has any relation to meditative practice (at least in the OP's sense) since as far as I understand it's there to prevent pat...

Re: Field

This "notion" exists in Zen and Daoism. IMO it exists in Tibetan Buddhism also but is not really explained.
In any case I don't think this means one could just practice instead of someone else.

Re: Namkhai Norbu lineage

"Our teachings" are not dead as long as we live. After that however if no one gives transmissions they will die out. But this goes mainly for teachings specific to DC, such as Longsal, SMS, Yantra Yoga and Vajra Dance, sadhanas that Rinpoche composed and termas of Khenytse Chokyi Wangchug. All other...

Re: Practicing dzogchen without tantric vows? Do i need them?

It's pretty simple. When I asked Him, Norbu Rinpoche told me years ago that if you're in your primordial state then there are no samayas but if you aren't there are.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

But there are a lot of people in the DC that been teaching for decades and "lung" is normally not something requiring that the person giving it is fully realised. There are also other masters that can give direct introduction. So it all comes down to the Longsal teachings. If you have taken on a po...

Re: Dagpo Kagyu empowerments

Everyone should read Sapan’s three vows and his Clarifying the Muni’s Intent, even if it pisses them off. He raises excellent questions, and was an amazing scholar and practitioner. He was also the product of a particular era in Tibetan history, and it shows. I found it very difficult to disagree w...

Not sure if this is real or not haha but while disrespectful you're not going to hell for this. To do that you'd have to do one of the following: Intentionally murdering one's father. Intentionally murdering one's mother. Killing an Arhat (fully enlightened being). Shedding the blood of a Buddha. Cr...

But seriously to Pero, how would one have a teacher if one wasn't actually taught anything?
What does TINO stand for?

Well, one could have a very shitty teacher or be a shitty student. :lol:

Re: Lama Lena Testimonies/Credentials

Not necessarily. How so? For someone to be your guru, you must understand something from them in a concrete way. Just going and listening to some teachings really does not mean anything. I don't know if that makes sense. Then even if you go to a regular empowerment, if you listen, do all you're tol...
