Dzogchen Tantras

I know that we cant discuss particulars about practice but does that also apply to passages from various Dzogchen Tantras as well?

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

In the Longde teachings Rinpoche talks about the 11th Buddha Ngondzog Gyalpo and in other places it says Heruka Ngondzog Gyalpo...is there a difference? No. Thanks man..its difficult to find any information on NG in relation to Longde/Vajra Bridge. So whats the difference in the titles "Tonpa" and ...

Re: First rate translators in non-English European languages

Not entirely sure when it will be available, and you should definitely get the lung for the tantra. Chögyal Namkhai Norbu gave the lung for it in May 2015. That was one of the few transmissions that I missed. So who else is giving it? Any major Nyingma lama. /magnus Happen to know any in New Mexico?

Re: First rate translators in non-English European languages

Malcolm translated four of the 17 tantras and they are also published. Dzogchen Community is working on a translation dra thalgyur root tantra. /magnus Ah yeah, I didn't word that very clearly. I meant that I didn't think the DC translators were doing anything from the 17, not Malcolm. What I knew ...

Re: Why?

It is my understanding that prior to Padmasambhava coming to Tibet the Tibetans were very war-like and had conquered many smaller Asian countries as well as China...just a guess but that might account for their troubles now with China.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I seem to remember someone telling me something about how Rinpoche wore rings on his index and ring fingers having something to do with protecting or conserving clarity and sensation or something like that. Anyone remember this at all?

Re: Quitting smoking

Its also helpful to remember that smoking isnt just one habit..its a lot of little habits. For example: you wake up in the morning and light up, after you eat you light up, just before going to bed you light up, a stressful situation happens, etc. So the idea is to figure out all of your little habi...

Lighten up. I know ... but today it's a bit hard. Read this, and look at the photos, as though you're reading about the countryside you grew up in and you might see why. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-01-06/dead-animals-bushfire-biosecurity-emergency/11843428?fbclid=IwAR1Z5byiQrR40GGO8xYchC_rtTRM...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I dont think there would be a problem with both son and daughter of Rinpoche stepping up and sharing the responsibility...but then again, Im not in the inner circle...would be nice though to get Rinpoches perspective from both of them...
