Entry into gcod

As I mentioned in another thread, I am interested in doing gcod more often. I did the short kusali offering (without special melody or instrumental accompaniment) as part of the LN ngondro, which I just had the lung for. I have also received the Dudjom Throma wang which I think doesn't actually incl...

Re: Good days for chod

I just checked Machig's Complete Explanation (I probably should have done that before.) After I quick look through I found, "Every [lunar] month [observe] these four dates: the first, the tenth, the twenty-fifth, and the eighteenth. Also these three: the fourteenth or the twenty-ninth, the new moon,...

Re: Good days for chod

Thanks for your replies. I suppose I'm not really looking for a way to make this into a daily practice, I already have something for that and I definitely don't want any more to do on the 10th and 25th as these are my two 'busiest' days, practice-wise. I was just looking at ways of getting chod into...

Good days for chod

If you don't do chod as a regular daily practice are there any specific days of the lunar calendar that are good. I recently read ( here ) that the 9th, 19th and 29th are good days. I've also heard that the 15th is a good day and I imagine that the 25th might be too but I do something else on that d...

Re: Random question on Chogyam Trungpa

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

FWIW, I just found practically the exact opposite description of Dorje Drolo: Dorjie Drolod is the most important among the great manifestation of Guru Padmasambhava. According to both Buddha and the Guru Padmasambhava, this degenerative era is characterized by strong forms of desire and anger. The...

I can only read the beginning & end of this book in the reader!
From where could i get this book (or the few pages of the sadhana)?
You have to join TBRC. Hopefully, if should be a quicker process than joining DC.

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

I think one of them is a terma discovered by the Fifth Dalai Lama and another by Dudul Dorje. And I'm guessing it may include a Jangter Drolo.

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

Why "write it off"? You just received two empowerments according to two lineages, this is a great privilege. I missed pretty much the whole thing. Got a connection back just in time for hearing some of Song of Vajra. I heard a few syllables recited between it cutting out, but wasn't sure what part ...

Re: ChNNR Dorje Drolo retreat

I think I'll just write this one off. About as far from the last Drolo empowerment I received as you can get.

Will the text that ChNNR read from and explained today be made available?

Also, will members be able to replay the webcasts?

I don't think he gave Guru Yoga transmission. I thought he said he was going to do it tomorrow. I don't think there was enough time today. Good teaching, though.
