I cannot promise anything, but if you attended the online lung, then I think I can make the recordings available.

Thank you Malcolm! I did attend the online event/lung for the book.

Shoot! I have the book (haven't started yet)
I'll read it but when unhelpful, is there any place I can donate it too? All books I'm "done with" I give away if the "right person" appears. But having no Vajrayana introduction (apart from sitting with the Maitreya institute a few times which I assume doesn't count) is that institute a good place to donate it too?

Give it to someone who practices Dzogchen. :-) I am sure there is someone here who may want it.

Hi,

I just want to put it out there that I strongly believe this seminar is an occasion not to be missed. We have the rare opportunity to dive into one of the oldest texts that gives a comprehensive commentary to the Dzogchen tantras; and what's even better is we will have the chance to learn from someone who knows the language precisely and can give an accurate presentation of what is being explained in this sublime text. I have met Acarya Malcolm in person and I can say without a doubt that he has clarified a lot of the confusion I had. Anyways I just wanted to share that because I think this is important.
:namaste:

I am personally slowly digesting this amazing text. So far, any of my confusions emerge from my own lack of understanding, not the clarity of the text. The text gradually becomes more clear as I integrate it. I feel slow, and this text just elucidates how little I understand and know. :anjali:

For that reason I very much hope that some format of recording will be available after the event for those of us who cannot be there. I and I'm sure others would be happy to contribute to any costs involved.

I'm planning to arrive sometime late on Friday night, unfortunately after the intro teaching, and attend the teachings on Saturay and Sunday.

I will be attending the whole thing - staying at the Comfort Inn near by.
My flight back to Dallas is at 4pm on Monday so I might schedule in a trip
to Taos where my aunt used to live in the 1950s.
Looking forward to it

your book seems to have considerably more breadth to it....gotta say it again...so many "gaps" that are being filled....know what I mean? I know now why you chose this...

It chose me. It was part of the four volume cycle of the Gongs pa zang thal. Though Longchenpa's tshig don mdzod has many more citations, it is not fundamentally different than this text, and excludes topics such as the nidana section, and so on.
I started reading " elaborations on emptiness uses of the heart sutra" and when Lopez gets to the
the nidana's it brought me back to revisit Buddhahood and the very detailed section on the nidanas including
the information you give in the introduction on the nidana's.
Lopez goes into some detail on the nidana's but Buddhahood really nails it .Bravo.

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 generic basis.

Topic eight is pure gold and every time I open your book this is where I end up.

The all-basis (ālaya, kun gzhi) is just a name for the imputing ignorance.
