If enough people demonstrated interest, I might be able to arrange for a lama to give the lung of the original Tibetan text.
This is a wonderful prospect. Can we somehow take stock of the interest? Poll here on Dharmawheel? E-mail a designated person that will add up names of interested?

Best,

Jens

Thank you Malcom for your work and continuous efforts! I would too be interested in receiving the Lung.

I have just received word from the Lama I had in mind that he would be willing to do this, and the way it will work is that he will give a section of the text, which I will then read in english, and so it might take a couple of days.

When the detail are worked out, I will let you know.

May we ask who the Lama is? Would it be open to participation in meat space too?

The Lama, who will remain nameless for now, is top notch. And I am not sure yet about the venue, but watch this space, and I will keep you all in the loop when we have finalized details of dates and venue.

Thanks,

This book is a systematic overview of the teachings found in the 17 Dzogchen Tantras. If you have Dzogchen transmission, you can use the information in the book.
Is World Wide Guru Yoga Transmission of Namkhai Norbu Dzogchen transmission?
Is it enough?

Malcom,

Can you recommend this book as a starting point for those who have received transmission yet are new to Dzogchen teachings and have not read any other material?

If not can you recommend a starting point so one can work towards this material?

Thanks!

There are parts in this book suited to beginners, specifically topic 8, in the sections on semzins and rushan. The first seven topics mainly cover theory and yogic anatomy. Of course the latter is very important, and one should understand them well.

Otherwise, get the Precious Vase and work through it. Or get both.

Is WWT webcast of Namkhai Norbu enough for this also?
