 Mr M asked me yesterday, "“The everyday practice of dzogchen is simply to develop a complete carefree acceptance, an openness to all situations without limit.”

- Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Dzogchen Practice in Everyday Life

Makes it sound simple

What do you make of this, Soh?"


This is actually a text by chogyam Trungpa but endorsed by dilgo khyentse.

Chogyam trungpa has lots of controversy and his behaviour certainly isnt exemplary of a buddhist let alone a realised teacher

I myself have doubts whether he even realised anatta or just attained a state of no mind

Nonetheless john tan and i do like that text in the link above

This should be everyday practice after anatta

So what he said at least here is of value regardless of his level of realization and actualization"

Mr. M: "Oh wow, very interesting. I didn’t know the quote was from Chogyam Trungpa. In context it’s even better."

(Maha Ati = Great Perfection/Dzogchen)

John Tan a week ago: 

"There is no self. If there is a split between self and other, then training of self is in understanding otherness. If you are to practice forgoing ego, you are essentially practicing full opening when meeting situations, events and otherness." 

I then sent John Tan the Maha Ati text by Chogyam Trungpa (I know he is a teacher who had issues with conduct and controversies, but sometimes you can write something well without fully living it)

Download the text here:

John Tan replied "Quite good"

Piotr quoted something nice by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche:

"Nonduality does not mean that you dissolve into the world or that the world becomes you. It is not a question of oneness, but of zero-ness. No synchronization of the sense perceptions is necessary. Everything is reduced into zero, and the whole thing becomes one-pointedness—or zero-pointedness. That is moksha, or “freedom.” You do not have any hassles and no synchronization is necessary. Things just unfold by themselves."

Thusness also wrote:

The tendency to unify is the cause of reification. Consciousness always subsume into Oneness because the idea is so beautiful to the mind and fits so well to the inherent intellect. The very act of unification into oneness prevents the seeing of liberation at spot. Instant liberation at spot is realized by recognizing the very nature of appearances/phenomena and self is non-arising and empty, it is not resting in/as Awareness or space. The former is liberation via wisdom, the later is just Awareness teaching.
