Taratulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche ”At first, for bewildered beings
Awareness did not arise on the ground.” Other way to translate this is : “….did not recognise the Ground.”
”By relaxing cognition as it is
May their awareness take its seat.
May they attain the wisdom of discrimination.” Other translation : “Relax in natural state, thus mastering natural state of awareness and realize the wisdom of discernment.”
Aspiration of Samantabhadra is translated also as WISH-GRANTING PRAYER OF SAMANTABHADRA Kunzang Gongpa Zhangtal. Gongpa is much more than only aspiration. It is ” direct transference to the dinamic of Kuntu Zangpo- primordial Buddha Samantabhadra”.

OM SVASTI It is so precious that Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche gives open webcast teachings of Dzogchen. I still remember that I have to drive about 900 km one way to reach Merigar Dzogchen community in Italy to receive Dzogchen teachings, lungs and transmissions from Rinpoche in June 1989 onwards. I repeated these Dharma journeys sometimes even twice a year to attend Teachings and retreat there . Twenty –one years later we can listen to Dzogchen teachings by following webcasts at our homes, Dharma centres or retreat centres. I was listening from Ati Yoga Ling, my retreat centre in South Austria.
As I came back to this world as a Bodhisattva , to serve the Teachings of Buddhas and uphold lineage of natural Sound of Dharmata (chönyid kyi rangdra) , I am always very interested in Dzogchen teachings and transmissions of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. I believe that in contemporary times Rinpoche is among very few Dzogchen masters who give such precious instructions about Dzogchen, our natural state. Even when I followed his Teachings at Merigar, I always wrote everything down . Notes of all retreats that I attended are in Buddha Dharma archive.It is so good that Rinpoche is teaching in English. This is one more sign of his great compassion and dedication .I also like Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoches precision about time. His Dharma teachings are well organised : Rinpoche starts on time and finish according to the schedule. This all is practical application of Presence and awareness in daily activities….Therefore I shared Dharma notes from this Teachings on open webcast with more than 2800 of my friends on Facebook. And in this A-live Dharma teachings I share this Knowledge with you, dear Reader at the Heritage of Mankind-Treasure of pure Dharma. Most important explanations –related with natural Sound of Dharmata, are marked red. There is not much to say about natural Sound of Dharmata. It is wordless transmission .One must turn attention inward …I prepared these Dharma notes in an interactive way, re-publishing also selected comments from my friends on Facebook, as they wrote them. Visual Dharma: Three Testaments of Garab Dorje serves as further inspiration and guidance on the Path of Ati Yoga Dzogpa chenpo- thigle chenpo, Dharma*ta. May all beings be awakened to their True nature , Dharma*ta. OM AH HUM SVAHA
Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche wrote in the handwritten letter to me :
“Merigar the 20th Aug. 2006 Comunita Dzogchen Merigar seal
Dear Tulku Tara Drimed Drolkhar, thanks for your letter and DVD and your nice cards, they all received in my hand, but I am sorry that I didn´t get time to reply. Here, we are fine and our retreat went well. I hope everything goes well with you. With many Tashi Delegs Ch. Namkhai”
Dharma notes from Rinpoche´s Dzogchen Teachings in Barcelona , Oct. 2011
: Starting with Guru Yoga with white A and Song of Vajra …
“Guru Yoga is most important in Dzogchen practice. Rinpoche explain about Song of the Vajra in connection with chakras in our body . Sound is the root of Emptiness , Sound is most important for integration into real nature. Song of Vajra is the base of Knowledge of Dzogchen teaching. NATURAL SOUND : Dharmakaya manifest Sambhogakaya through SOUND . Dzogchen tantras explain about this . “
“To be in contemplation means to be in real nature….This is the main path for Realization… To be in state of contemplation is to be beyond mind . …Guru Yoga is also purification. In Song of Vajra we integrate with SOUND. Direct introduction with the experience of Emptiness : this is our Real nature (Dharmata)….RIGPA means Instant presence …
”Direct introduction with experience of CLARITY to realize RIGPA. We must integrate everything into our Real nature (Dharmata), into Instant presence or Rigpa. .. It is fantastic to sing Song of Vajra together. This is important for country, individuals, planet and all sentient beings. Song of Vajra has 6 aspects : liberation through seeing, liberation through hearing / Bardo thödol / Song of Vajra is great cause of liberation, liberation through touch, smelling …Song of Vajra is the cause of liberation of all senses . …”
Chöpa or attitude on the Dzogchen path is to be responsible for yourself, release tensions and don´t give too much importance to tensions which create problems … Buddha said : Life is big dream .
Rinpoche explains about famuous Shitro empowerment that he received in Tibet from his root Guru Rigdzin Changchub Dorje (accomplished Rainbow Body).
Rinpoche explains in detail about the origin of outer Mandala offering composed by Chögyam Phagpa of Sakya Order.
Rinpoche explains about use of mantras : “One must have good concentration by chanting mantras. In Dzogchen & Anu Yoga way we must go into QUALITY, not so much into QUANTITY. …One must practice in qualified way. “
” Our real state is nondual : khadak (peaceful state) and Lhundrub (infinite potentiality of manifestations : Rupakaya= Sambhogakaya and Nirmanakaya). Mantra of 42 peaceful deities in mandala of heart chakra; mantra of 58 wrathful manifestation in head chakra .
”Vajra breathing with OM AH HUM is very powerful practice. OM AH HUM is the essence of all mantras. Inhale with OM, hold breath with AH, exhale with HUM. “Rinpoche teaches how to integrate principal mantra , peaceful and wrathful mantras of Lama Zabdon series of Teaching – with Vajra breathing.
At the end of todays Dzogchen teaching Rinpoche gives LUNG for Medium Tun practice .

October 5 ..°*˜❀˜*°•.✫❤✫ღϠ₡ღ๑۩۞۩๑ღϠ₡ღ✫❤✫•°*˜❀˜*° 2011, 10-12 am… Beginning with Guru Yoga A and Vajra Song…Continuation of Lama Zabdon Nyingthig – terma teaching of Rigdzin Changchub Dorje , taught by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche in Barcelona. Rinpoche is teaching about local guardians of Tibet, 12 Tenma guardians connected to 12 localities of Tibet and its mountains .
Rinpoche explains about 2 kinds of dedication : Mowa – offering of our merit to others ,like Surmo- offering of tsampa & butter to pretas ; Mönlam – Path of good wishes . Mahayana offering is explained as Korsum Nyimed : giver, gift and receiver are both unreal…said Buddha Shakyamuni
.°*˜❀˜*°• Explanation about the history of this terma- hidden treasure of Rigdzin Changchub Dorje : written as notes in original text by Guru Padmasambhava : This terma will be discovered by Mutig Tsenpo ( son of King Trisong Detsen) with the name of Vajra/Dorje (i.e. Changchub Dorje), in times of kali yuga …(It was astonishing to know that Rigdzin Changchub Dorje was emanation of Mutig Tsenpo . I always felt strong devotion to Rigdzin Changchub Dorje).
Additional notes to terma * hidden treasure : “In the year of wood horse (1894), in 5th lunar month, 7th lunar day, discovered as mind terma by Rigdzin Changchub Dorje who kept it secret until the year of Earth dragon (1928) , 6th lunar month, 10th lunar day of Guru Padmasambhava , began to teach it publicly on that very day .
Rigdzin Changchub Dorje was building many stupas around his area in East Tibet , as instructed by Guru Padmasambhava in this hidden treasure. He also asked Tibetan government in Lhasa to build stupas all around Tibet…They did not build even one special stupa, as instructed ….Chinese invasion could be prevented !
.•°*˜❀˜*° .Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche explains short sadhana : beginning with purification breathing,purification of all 5 elements , Refuge & Bodhicitta : Guru Padma Vajra * Padmasambhava/Mandarava , surrounded by 8 manifestations of Guru Rinpoche, Dewas and Dakinis..Guru Yoga …(.Nongradual transformation of Anuyoga)..Rinpoche explains about solar & lunar energy in Vajrayana…..✫•°*˜❀˜*°…After transformation , we sing Vajra song and dedicate the merit.

Rinpoche explains : “Essence of Dzogchen is Guru yoga.In Ati Yoga we see white A in ourselves and relax. Practice of day and night is Guru Yoga, for total Realization. Even in a dream one can have continuation of this Presence (i.e. of white A in Thigle).”
”If one is not distracted, one can be more in Real nature (i.e. Dharmata). One can release tensions to be present in Guru yoga (i.e. white A in rainbow sphere). …This is most important Dharma practice in daily life …Secondary practices are : vajra breathing with OM AH HUM ..Prana energy can be integrated with 3 Vajras of OM AH HUM. Vajra breathing Can be practiced during walking …Short Tun can be done in the morning or during collective practices …Dzogchen practitioners must not be limited , must go beyond limitations. In state of Guru Yoga all Buddhist traditions are unified ….One does not practice Guru Yoga for a Teacher or Buddhist school, but for ones Realization. …Lama Zabdon is practiced as Drubchen collectively. “

Excerpts from Dzogchen Teaching by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, Oct 2, 2011 , open webcast from Barcelona, Spain… Chönyid Ngalsum is 1st Vision in Thödgal practice. From this 3 next Visions develop….leading to accomplishmnet of Rainbow Body.
Seventeen Tantras of Ati Yoga Dzogchen Upadesha our page on Facebook
Chögyal Namkhai Norbu :”Chönyind ngalsum starts with Thödgal level of Dzogchen practice : visions of lights, rainbow spheres in the sky. These visions are not outside. Chönyid – Dharmata-nature of mind-primordial potentiality : visions of thigle represent our potentiality . DRA THAL GYUR tantra (i.e.Penetration of Sound) explains : Those who have visions of thigle and recognise it as Dharmata (Chönyid ngalsum) never transmigrate in ordinary way….Sutras explain about 5 paths : accumulation of merit, application (experiences of practice developing, Bodhisattva, free from samsara).etc…Buddha explained 5 kinds of capacities for practitioners : participation, faith etc .Buddha Shakyamuni said : I show you the Path, but realization depends on you .”
IV.HUMAN RIGHTS :
4.1.Different views of Bhutan Gross national happiness
Taratulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche via Wen Fung Ringo Singapore
However, many of my friends on FB , from Bhutan wrote about great unhappiness, violence in families, almost ongoing job to do for very little payment…We must be realistic. I don´t believe in propaganda ! OM MANI PADME HUM
You, Rossella Pan, Arun Kumar, Tan Joo Hock and 10 others like this.
Taratulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche Furthermore: this “research” about Gross National Happiness was done mainly by telephone interview by someone from government office, asking shortly , if people are happy… Imagine how many people in Bhutan don´t have telephone! Even if asked, they are expected to say: I am happy ! Even if they are not happy…. From this realistic perspective such Gross National Happiness measurements are not realistic and don´t show true facts . OM MANI PADME HUM
P.S. link to Bhutan F-5 group http://www.facebook.com/groups/272959716066463/ more than 600 members. F-5 group are people in Bhutan who can not obtain citizenship, although they live in that country for decades.
4.2.Tragedy in China : car accidents in China and nobody cares !
Lijia Zhang: The death of the two-year-old run over as passersby ignored her is symptomatic of a deepening moral crisis..
Taratulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche commented on the Guardian.
This happens in Chinese nation because they focus only on economic development and competition, totally forgetting human and spiritual values! If they could only remember hundreds of years of their Buddhist history and change. Building statues and renovating temples – for attracting tourists- is not enough to improve their collective karma. OM MANI PADME HUM.
How can people have such cold “hearts” ??????? “It might have been a different story if one of the 18 people had lent Yueyue a hand. None even bothered to call for emergency services. Later, when interviewed by a journalist, one of the passersby, a middle-aged man riding a scooter, said with an uncomfortable smile on his face: “That wasn’t my child. Why should I bother?”" Shame on these people who don´t have even an iota of compassion !
Beware – viewer discretion is advised!! Watch how a poor Chinese child gets run over and then run over again by two separate vehicles and people do nothing t…
Have never seen such cruel people like this . Shame on China !
Sunflower Jacquie USA .China was persecuting people who help each other from a case in 2006 wherein someone was sued for injuring someone taking a patient into a hospital or something to that effect; ever since then people had been afraid to help
Taratulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche Yes, i read about this in the guardian. But it is still horrible that people behave like this, without any human heart at all ! If such people wish to become No 1 in world economy then we must be really worried !
John Wiles I think that this horror has shocked the world.It certainly shocked and appalled me! I will never understand man’s inhumanity !
Sunflower Jackie : Well maybe this has to happen so that people will be more aware; China has been desensitized; they have lived in hell for centures
Tara Tulku Rinpoche : If chinese government or their laws punish people who help each other then it is really demonic . Completely unhuman !

4.3. Occupy movement : I really appreciate Michael Moore explanations about Occupy movement. This social word wide movement goes well with changing humanity in 2012 and onwards.
IV. Gender Equality in Buddhism : Empowerment of women
4.4.Gender equality Mohani MataHari I hope you like!
I never hear the Dalai Lama or the Karmapa talk about women.
What is your take on this?

Taratulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche Really extraordinary good video, added to our Favorites on youtube. Together we can make miracles …14th Dalai Lama supports Gender equality in Buddhism and appreciate our work very much…together we promote human and spiritual values , he wrote few years ago. Thank you for posting this very good video on FB. Anzelle Pieretti I had a lama tell me once to pray to be reincarnated as a man because it’e easier to become enlightened in a male body… I still remember how shocked I was hearing this and then reading it in scriptures…
Mohani MataHari That’s so funny! I have had a lama tell me that women achieve enlightenment much faster than men….and that’s why men like to be in charge, to hide the info from women… power tripping on enlightenment! Ha! how funny to both
Anzelle Pieretti It does make me wonder though why all these Tulku’s & Rinpoches keep coming back as men and there are so few female Rinpoche’s in the world..
Mohani MataHari because i don’t see the men acknowledging the women. i heard that in India…at the temples, the women have to sit at the back of the room. is this true?…by the way my boddisattva name is Karma Tserin Drolkhar…..i have often thought of renouncing because i do the work anyway but i don’t know if i want to come back here again. In fact…..i know that we don’t have to die!
Anzelle Pieretti I’ve never been to India but I ran a book store in a Gompa in the US for a few years.. and I noticed how badly mistreated the Anni’s were on so many levels… to name a few… we would do month long retreats and the monks always got all of their text’s for free… the Anni’s had to pay for their texts.. with a 20% discount (big of them). The monks ate for free… the Anni’s had to pay for their meals.. and many times there wasn’t enough food for them after the monk’s finished eating
Mohani MataHari What can you say on these things Rimpoche? How did you break through the barriers?
Taratulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche All that you wrote, dear Anzelle and Mohani, is true. I completely agree. There is a video on youtube where ven. Thubten Chödron tells that her feelings as a Buddhist nun to keep low profile, is great obstacle for her. She told this at the meeting in Dharamsala. Then there is courageous Sylvia Wenzel who lead guided meditation about empowerment of women, on that same meeting…. One must never beleive that one must incarnate as a man to become enlightened. That is simply ignorant believe. In Dzogchen tantras it is written that women has greater potentials to become enlightened. 14th Dalai Lama also recognizes that women has greater compassion. He replied very friendly on the occasion of his birthday in 2005 and also later. As a Bodhisattva it is the best to carry on your Dharma work for the benefit of sentient beings and don´t expect much recognition from hierarchical religious patriarchal structures. Empowerment of women comes from self-empowerment, from innate Buddha nature . If one depend too much on religious patriarchal structures , one can not develop new ways of transmitting Buddhist Dharma, but is bound too much by culture and their habits. My advise to all women is not to bow down to men but to have dignity and self respect. Virtuous men will support this- unvirtuous men will oppose this . Gender equality in Buddhism is a process and also one of Millennium Goals of United nations (till 2015). For all of us women this is very encouraging. When protecting our human rights we must look at international standards -like the Millennium Development Goals, not look back to history where women has been and still are discriminated , abused and neglected, esp. in Asia. Empowerment of women has to do with Universal education, emotional, economic independence, equal rights and equal opportunities in all fields of life. We appreciate all who promote and support Gender equality .
