Re: Buddhahood in This Life

Where can i find a concise explanation of how and why the base arises from the base? Buddhahood in this Life, topics one and two. It seems the all basis (not sure what you are calling this and have yet to discover in Buddhahood) would be superfluous if all samsara and nirvana already arise from the...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

Wisdom has unfortunately declined to release the entire interview. Malcom apparently set a new record for longest audio presentation! They also said to look forward to more content from Malcom in the future. A Wisdom Academy presentation would be cool.. But,,, why? It was so interesting to hear! So...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Does anyone know where I can find information regarding Changchub Dorje's tregcho terma? Which one? He revealed many and ChNN taught from the cycle numerous times. ChNN had mentioned basically: "tregcho there is one of the terma teaching of my teacher Changchub Dorje." And he goes on to say it is a...

"Kadag, it means since the beginning pure." -ChNN

"kadag ~ ka dag ~ pure from the beginning, syn. shunyata" -DC Glosary

No different from alpha purity.

Re: Upcoming book by Karl Brunnhölzl on The Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra

Looks like Brunnhölzl has opted to render ka dag as "alpha-purity." I recall that being a contentious choice around these parts when Keith Dowman employed it in his work. But apparently it meets KB's more rigorous standards. A quick search showed that usage had already appeared in works by Chögyam ...

Re: Question on Duality/Other

Hi everyone, if I am correct in understanding the teachings I have heard and books I have studied, rigpa is the single ground awareness, the dharmakaya. This is an incorrect understanding. There is no such thing as a "single ground awareness." Our consciousness is a manifestation of this ground awa...

Re: Question on Duality/Other

I am still working my way through the beginning of the book. At the beginning, it is explained how Samantabhadra is before all activity in consciousness, effectively once awareness arises and recognizes itself. Samantabhadra is thus the same in all mindstreams. This line of thought is what got me t...

Re: How do we know our practice is working?

is this looking, crossing, and road somehow seperate from dzogchen? No, but the view shouldn't be mixed with conduct. As Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche says regarding Padmasambhava's famous quote, Guru Rinpoche also said, "Though the view should be as vast as the sky, keep your conduct as fine as barley flo...

Nothing, if you can abide in that state 24/7. I don't know about you, but I still have to look both ways when crossing the road. :smile:

Re: How do we know our practice is working?

Dzogchen is a path beyond mind. Positive and negative deeds are created by the mind. While this is certainly true, I can't imagine that you are advocating that one ignore the law of cause and effect. Otherwise, that would be a case of conduct getting lost in the view, no? if dzogchen, our real natu...

Re: Learning Dzogchen online

Hi all, in the event that anyone watched all of the Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche talks like I did (live), wow, what a teaching! We only made it about halfway through the text - is that typical in a transmission like this one? Should that be considered the full transmission of the text? There are some prac...

in the great book "The Mirror", it is said: "it is this decisive knowing, this pure presence of the true original condition, that is called nirvana." so i thought the primordial state is beyond both samsara and nirvana. here it sounds otherwise. thoughts?
