I. INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY BUDDHIST STUDIES :
NATURAL SOUND OF DHARMATA Chonyid kyi rangdra ๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑
1.1.Introduction : Homage to immaculate Buddhas
When my Buddhist Path began about twenty-eight years ago, my main interest was natural Sound . First discovery about it was in the Book by Chan master Huang Po :
http://www.abuddhistlibrary.com/Buddhism/C%20-%20Zen/Ancestors/The%20Zen%20Teachings%20of%20Huang%20Po/Zen%20Teachings%20of%20Huang-po.htm At that early time I had only Croatian translation of this supreme Dharma book by Chan Master Hung Po , on transmission of Mind to Mind , that is Heart to Heart . »The Sound of Tathagatas is eternal …« Later I began to search for the Teachings about Natural sound of Dharmata in Buddhist traditions of Tibet . When I transcribed Tai Situ Rinpoche+s Dharma lecture about reincarnation , he pointed out at the questions & answers session , about importance of Natural sound of Dharmata . In next years I had opportunity to ask Tai Situ Rinpoche about this, in personal interview at Rime Choling in Graz, Austria .
lotus1In Surangama sutra Natural Sound of Dharmata is described as method of Avalokiteshvara and of Manjushri . I kept inquiring further, asking almost every Buddhist master that I met , how they teach and practice Natural Sound of Dharmata . Many did not give precise or any answer at all. It was obvious around year 2000 that teachings about Natural Sound of Dharmata are endangered and almost lost …. Then I had interesting dream in which I said with great certainty to few English speaking Dharma teachers : »Do you know what Chonyid kyi rangdra means? Silence among them …«Do you know about Natural Sound of Dharmata ?« Nobody answered …«I came to this world to uphold these endangered lineages !«
Chogyal Namkhai Norbu on open webcast
In one of my short letters to Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche whom I fist meat at Merigar Dzogchen community in June 1989 , I asked him about Natural Sound of Dharmata … Rinpoche answered in his specific way : »I always teach about this …« Althou in that years it was not so obvious , as it is now in 2014 … We focused more on symbolic transmission , I believe . I encouraged Rinpoche in letter few times , to teach about Dra Thal Gyur tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha which is the root of all Ati Yoga Dzogchen teachings and also source of Natural Sound of Dharmata .
From 1999 till 206 I had the privilege to study Ati Yoga Dzogchen Mind to Mind or Heart to Heart with Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche (1931-2011). Of course my motivation was to deepen my Knowledge about Natural Sound of Dharmata .In Spring 2000 I received Ati Yoga Lineage transmission of Samantabhadra-Vajrasattva-Garab Dorje through Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche . My Collected Dharma works are entitled : Gentle Rain of Nectar Blessings . Later Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche published wonderful Dharma book : Cascading Waterfalls of Nectar . His Book gives so many sublime teachings about Natural Sound of Dharmata . May we be blessed just by reading and contemplating just few of his Words :

Thinley Norbu – 2006 – ‎Spiritual life
This dharmata is absolutely uncreated,yet it is known as everything that appears through the … When the natural sound of dharmata,unborn and free …
1.2. Visions for the present and future : Natural Sound of Dharmata is essence of our body, energy and midn/consciousness . Natural Sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chonyid kyi rangdra) is supreme Guru Yoga or Samadhi of Sound as taught by Dzogchen master Vimalamitra and classified by All-knowing Longchen Rabjampa (Twenty-one Semdzins, 2nd group).
DAKINI DAY
We are all so fortunate to listen Chogyal Namkhai Norbu open webcast on this Dakini day . In last few years Rinpoche continuously explain about importance of Secret Sound . Let me quote from todays webcast : »Three primordial wisdoms are : essence = emptiness; nature = movement ; energy = three primordial potentialities : Sound /Light/Rays. Sound originates in emptiness . We know outer sounds, inner sound and Secret sound or our potentiality of Essence /Emptiness . Letter A has origin in Secret sound . Ancient Sanskrit alphabet begins with A . A represent (that) Sound . White represent Light . From that White A develops rays of five elements . This forms Rainbow sphere or Thigle . Dharmakaya is state of Realization = dimension of emptiness. Blue Samantabhadra is symbol of Dharmakaya. Blue light is symbol of emptiness, like the sky . When we sound A we see rainbow sphere/thigle in ourselves . It represent our primordial potentiality . In this Guru yoga practice we relax , in that state of Guru Yoga or contemplation .«
VAJRA OF DHARMATA NATURAL SOUND

VAJRA OF DHARMATA NATURAL SOUND

Today when we were singing the Vajra song in Ganapuja I had interesting contemplation experience : holding the Vajra in my right hand , I understood that Vajra has Rainbow sphere in the middle , my Vajra was at the center of Merigar Gompa = Temple of great liberation . All is connected to Vajra of Dharmata Natural Sound above Vajra throne in Bodhgaya . In this contemplation experience (which I beleive many felt at exactly the same time of the Vajra song) there was complete silence , like astonishment … One of the last verses of the Vajra Song remind us about Natural Sound of Dharmata …
1.3. Natural Sound of Dharmata : contemplation must be effortless . This Secret Sound is part of ourselves and is not created by us . It is uncreated (Tib. Dumache). It is primordially present in ourselves , appearing spontaneously , when we are purified enough and we have Direct introduction . My method of giving Direct introduction is very simple . When we go deeper and deeper in Knowledge about our True nature (Skt . Dharmata, Tib. Chonyid) practice become more and more simple , not more and more complicated . It become less intellectual and more natural . Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche advised : »The best is to be simple and natural… » With contemplation of Natural Sound of Dharmata we can gradually , but certainly get confidence that our physical body is condensed Light of five elements … If we can reverse but to the source , that is to Natural Sound of Dharmata, we can accomplish the Rainbow Body , as many of Dzogchen masters have already done .

This lineage : Chönyid kyi rangdra or Natural Sound of Dharmata has origin in Dra Thal Gyur root tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha . Master Vimalamitra is the only one who wrote commentary on Dra Thal Gyur tantra or Reverberation of Sound .Vimalamitras commentary is preserved at Khatok monastery in East Tibet . REVERBERATION OF SOUND is the root of all Buddhist Dharma . Reverberation of Sound (Dra Thal Gyur) is connected to 16 other Dzogchen Upadesha tantras . We need to see this display diametrical as a circle , not horizontal . DRA THAL GYUR tantra in the centre and names of 16 other Upadesha tantras around .

“The Mind transmission of the buddhas of three times is known as a transmission through blessings – naturally perfect blessings of all buddhas of the past and the future and of those who reside in the present. Independent of articulated words this transmission is understood and realized through the natural Sound of Dharmata.” Wellspring of the great perfection – The lives and insights of the early masters , compiled and edited by E.P. Kunsang, The Twelve Dzogchen Buddhas , An excerpt from the great history of the Heart Essence , part One belonging to the instruction section Cycle of the Heart Essence of Vimalamitra , pg 119. Rangjung Yeshe Publications. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Seventeen-Tantras-of-Ati-Yoga-Dzogchen-Upadesha/100283213391348
To maintain Mind transmission / Blessings of the Buddhas through the Natural Sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chönyid kyi rangdra) there are A-ti Yoga retreats at special places , supporting Contemplation / Samadhi.
ASTRO TRAVEL : BUDDHA DHARMA-OBF INTERNATIONAL 1.5. Afterword : In May 2014 Chogyal Namkhai Norbu will give Teaching retreat with Guru Amitayus practice . Then we will focus on Guru Padmasambhava who practiced at Maratika cave in Nepal , with His wife Mandarava and attained realisation of Immortality . We will reflect on Guru Padmasambhava teachings of Natural Sound of Dharmata , because he is one of Lineage masters of Ati Yoga Dzogpa Chenpo Great Completeness .
1.6. Selected bibliography and notes : after we bagn to publish about Natural sound of Dharmata, this almost lost understanding (and practice) is rejuvenated , included in Buddhist dictionaries and in few Dharma books . These are like seeds beginning to sprout . Reminds me of the dream in which HH the Dalai Lama gave me two packages of seeds , asking me to take good care of them and not to lost them . Next moment I saw big meadow full of strong green grass . I taught to myself : how will these seeds grow on such uncultivated meadow ?! Next moment strong white seeds began to grow visibly and strongly … Human world is uncultivated samsara, but the seeds of Dharma , especially of Ati Yoga Dzogchen are strong , are growing and benefiting everyone with good karma . Sarwa mangalam .

SHITRO –KHORDAS RANGDROL Teaching retreat by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, Merigar, Italy, Oct 23-30,2009 . Open web cast (Open audio streaming).

Secret Sound and Peaceful * wrathful manifestations

From 1989 – 1996 when I listened many Dzogchen teachings from Semde, Longde and Upadesha series of Dzogchen nobody of us could imagine that after ten and more years there will be open web cast of these precious teachings. As previously – now I also wrote down aroudn 38 pages of text for my  references and study. Since I began with regular practice of Shitro sadhana of tertön Mingjur Dorje in 1990 , it was interesting to listen to another Shitro practice which Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche received from his root Guru Rigdzin Changchub Dorje . He was one of legendary Dzogchen masters who accomplished the Rainbow body in Tibet (20. Century).

For eight days Chögyal Namhkai Norbu Rinpoche transmitted precious Dharma , teaching in English for two hours a day. Students could learn about karma : cause, condition and effects, difference between meditation and contemplation, development and accomplishment stage in Nyingma school of Vajrayana Buddhism, diffrence between old school (Nyingma) and new schools (Sarma schools : Kagyu, Sakya, Geluk).

Shitro Khordas Rangdrol means natural liberation of samsara and nirvana . It is Anuyoga practice. I appreciate Rinpoche´s dilligent right efforts in explaining the methods of Nyingma Anuyoga practice which is non-gradual transformation. The knowledge about manifesting potentiality of the seed belongs to three inner yogas of Nyingma Vajrayana, namely Maha, Anu and Atiyoga. In new schools there are different methods of mother and father tantras.  Since in our Atiyoga lineage of Nyingma Vajrayana our main practice is discovering and resting in immediate presence of the Sound*Lights of Dharmata (Tib. Chönyid kyi rangdra) I was esp. interested to hear Rinpoche´s explanation about sound/light/rays as written also in the Bardo prayer by Guru Padmasambhava.Rinpoche expained :

“The Base means three primordial wisdoms : essence,nature, energy…Sound/light/rays = potentiality . Khadak = primordial purity of voidness + potentiality/Lhundrup… Dzogchen is called Atiyoga… Ati = primordial state. .. Contemplation in Atiyoga is practiced with open eyes, because seeing is ornament of natural state.” Rinpoche also taught Upadesha of six qualifications :

1.the Base  is primordialy pure (Khadak), manifesting potentiality (Lhundrup)

2.be at ease in the Base (Shi or Xi)

3.Lhundrup (potentiality) manifests as wisdom

4.Dharmakaya manifestations are five Wisdom lights

5.naturaly liberated state is instant presence, primordialy pure

6.our real nature (instant presence) is Dharmakaya. Inner clarity (nang-tsal) is like the lamp in the vase, not shining outside. Adzom Drukpa used explanation of thing-tsal : deep clarity (the same meaning as nang-tsal).

This deep clarity is Samantabhadra Buddha of dark blue light. His consort Samantabhadri is light blue/white light. From them infinite lights shine, manifesting 42 peaceful and 58 wrathful manifestations of Sambhogakaya. Rinpoche explained about three primordial potentialities : Sound/Light/Rays . There is outer sound, inner sound and secret Sound. In Atiyoga instant presence means presence of secret Sound which is state of Dzogchen.

“Shitro sadhana is practiced with Nyi-med method : non-dual of development and accomplishment stage. Real Vajrasattva is our primordial state. Real condition of Vajrasattva is Dharmakaya – he represents 100 manifestations as potentiality (Lhundrup). .. Khadak=voidness /Dharmakaya / peaceful  manifestations…Lhundrup =wrathful manifestations”. Rinpoche also explained  about Shitro practice of tertön Karma Lingpa (which I received from H.E.  Ayang Rinpoche in 1996).

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche  lead extensive Chang chö – purification ritual for deceised , with purification of six lokas and phowa practice. Precious explanation about four contemplations of Dzogchen followed together with symbolic teachings : Thigle chenpo (Rainbow sphere) with A in the centre is the symbol of Dharmakaya. Infinite primordial potentiality of Dharmakaya manifests as Sound/Light/Rays which is direct introduction to the natural state of Dzogchen. Rinpoche shortly taught about dark retreat experiences : “From Sound develops five wisdom lights of Thigle.This is essential Atiyoga/Dzogchen…” According to the Buddha : samadhi or contemplation (Tib. Ting-nye-dzin) means Guru Yoga. Samadhi (instant presence – of the secret Sound) brings greater merit as other virtuous deeds. It is great purification…Purification is very important practice. We face obstacles of negative emotions, negative karma, of dualistic visions…Purification si like dissolving clouds in the sky…With purification we accomplish Dharmakaya, Sambhogakaya and Nirmanakaya realisations. “ Nagarjuna did not support eating meat of sentient beings which are like our mother. Infinite negativities are accumulated by eating meat , said Master Nagarjuna. Rinpoche mentioned first vision in Thogal practice of contemplation : seeing Rainbow sphere in the sky (1) About such precious experiences  Rinpoche said : “If one have such experience  during life time, it is important for the Bardo of Dharmata (Chönyid bardo). Before ordinary bardo (Sipa bardo) there is natural light of the Bardo of Dharmata. There is no function of the mind, but there is Sound/Light/Rays. In that state practitioner meats mother –wisdom. With experiences  of Sound/Light/Rays practitioner recognises mother – wisdom in the bardo of Dharmata and accomplish Sambhogakaya realisation. … There is no ordinary bardo for you any more. But your manifestations can be in six lokas ! Without purification there is no Sambhogakaya realisation…Origin of higher tantras is through Sound and Light. Mahasiddhas receive transmissions through Sound and Light. Later they developed oral transmissions.” (2)

On the last day of the Teaching retreat Rinpoche graciously granted lung/reading transmissions of 22 Dharma practices ! He also explained some of them (Green Arya Tara etc.) This was followed by short Thun practice in relaxed, harmonious and present way***** At the end we exchanged great joyous applause with all Dzogchen practitioners gathered in Merigar gompa- Temple of great liberation (3)

Dedication :

May through these Dharma pith instruction all sentient beings be soon liberated into six spheres of Samantabhadra Buddha.

May the Lotus feet of compassinate  Dzogchen master remain firm upon the earth.

Thank you,dear Shell,

for selecting me as the WOMEN OF THE WEEK. I really don´t deserve that honour. But i see this as a sign of encouragement and inspiration which i share with all women who work for accomplishment of the Millenium Goals (until 2015) of United nations, namely GENDER EQUALITY & empowerment of women. May all beings be always peaceful, happy , wise and compassionate. May this social network: WE WOMEN always expand and benefit many beings, esp. women. OM MANI PADME HUM
