Re: Garchen Rinpoche Dzogchen Empowerment

What are the prerequisites and commitments for this empowerment? Also, is there anywhere that I can learn more about this form of Padmasambhava?

Re: Is there a place for me in Tibetan buddhism?

My two cents:

A teacher is indispensable in Vajrayana. Don't worry about traditions and schools. Find a teacher you can trust implicitly and the rest will fall into place.

YMMV.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I am planning on doing a Dorje Kotrab retreat before the year ends. Would really appreciate any advice/best practices from anyone who has completed this retreat. Please drop me a PM if you'd like to share your experiences and advice.

Much thanks in advance!

DC members should have received this email sometime last week. Not sure how much we'll be able to find out but it's worth a shot, I guess?

What's a good DC practice to do before moving into a new house? I was thinking of doing a Sang and Ganapuja at the new place before I start shifting my stuff over. That should cover everything, right?

Could you elaborate on the specifics of what they spoke how? Did they give any indication of just how bad things are going to get?

Agar 35

I've been battling chronic insomnia for more than a month, averaging about 2-3 hours of sleep per night. I was recently prescribed Ambien but I'm a bit worried about taking it due to my previous history with substance abuse. Instead I'm thinking of trying Agar 35 as recommended by ChNNR. I've pretty...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

We will never see a teacher like ChNNR again. The Marme Monlam reminds us that we are connected to Rinpoche and each other till enlightenment. We will see him over and over and over again. We are part of the mandala. The DC will still be around as long as people still come together to do the collec...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

We are now in a different situation and have to take full responsibility for ourselves. After Rinpoche passed away some people were upset or shocked and asked who would be his successor now.

Just going by my interests when I was younger.
Can confirm, was once young. Though, drugs and alcohol in my younger years eventually lead me to (re)establish a connection with Dharma in my latter years.
