Re: Chod Damaru vs standard Damaru

Re: Chod Damaru vs standard Damaru

I could not tell you where the best place to purchase one would be but if I were you I would try some out and see what feels right before buying - if that is an option for you. I have a monster damaru that I got years ago from Sharchen and ChNN blessed it so now I use that - but if I had to do it ov...

There are three transmission a guru can and will give in the context of an empowerment to practice this profoun...

Re: Question

The third statement of Garab Dorje. Full integration. Total realization. To realize means to become aware of, and even if one cant force realizing nature it is not a self occurring thing either, is it? In Dzogchen texts there are three stages generally described: recognition, realization, and liber...

Re: MELONG GIFT

Well, for me, it is pretty unelaborate, really - it is a token of my devotion to my root guru ChNN, a reminder to remain in relaxed and undistracted presence during the day, and a symbol of the buddha's teaching to regard all things as being like reflections or illusions. So there you go - it is a c...

Re: Seeing in the Dark

As I recall Rinpoche said in his biography that he was surprised to find that Ayu Khandro "could see as well in the dark as in daylight" - something like that. I'm not sure how literally to take that. In the first place he goes on to describe that her attendant lit a butter lamp so she could give th...

to Taos where my aunt used to live in the 1950s.
Looking forward to it
