Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I am Norbu Rinpoche's student, through the webcast, relatively late in his life (November 2016). I have wondered whether to be affiliated with DC, because I have come across conflicting information re: if it is required for samaya reasons. Sometimes the language has been that people in the Communit...

People practicing Dzogchen in a forest is super bad for the forest?? :shrug:
It is if they leave piles of garbage behind them.

Beyond that, human presence in forests in large numbers is usually is bad for forests.
Beyond forests,humans are bad for the planet. :(

I’m not sure what we are saying is the odd aspect exactly, but if it’s about the money—while he does have a relevant page on his website, he never asks for money or even mentions that it’s possible to donate to him during his teachings or on the Facebook page where he makes his announcements.

Re: Four Maras

Yes. Yes. It is very possible, but these gods, like Indra, Brahma, and so on, are not persons, they are positions. Are you saying they are sentient beings that fill these certain positions? Yes. This being so.Are the positions emanations of Buddha's and if not can you define the positions?

Therefore, Kamadeva, before being a deva, may be was a human being, or one of the other six classes of samsaric beings, right? Yes. It seems interesting to me thinking about, for example, that the Kama...
