Welcome to the Ngondro Online Forum! Use this as a place to introduce yourself, ask questions, and discuss Bön. If there are many questions, we will try to get Rinpoche to answer them or hold an occasional live stream to ensure they are answered.
Good afternoon! I just joined the Ngondro course this week and have just begun to go through the first lesson. I have practiced Buddhism on my own for about ten years, receiving teachings from various lamas, including the practice of Chod but feel that my practice has been chaotic and unfocused. I determined that I needed a more structured approach and wanted to start with the Ngondro. I am looking forward to learning and practicing in this space.
First of al a big ‘thank you’ to Latri Khenpo Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche for offering this Ngöndro course! And a ‘Hello’ to everybody who is enrolled in this course. I hope you all are fine!
I searched for the ‘right’ path or ‘my’ path for quite many years. During this time I came in contact with many different buddhist groups and traditions. I spent most of my time in the context of Zen, but I also came in contact with Theravada and Vajrayana. I am very interested in Dzogchen.
I think that for me it is a good thing to have kind of a broader view and know different buddhist vehicles, but I also see, that in the end it is necessary to focus regarding the view and practice. I want to focus on Bön and Dzogchen. So I came here to start all over again with the Ngöndro. I hope this forum still is maintained and that I maybe can get answers if questions arise.
