Welcome to this website. It is a tributary of the big river of dharma linked with the simplybeing.co.uk website of the teachings of James Low and C.R.Lama.

You are invited to jump into the water, and as you splash, know that the droplets’ sun-glint rainbows are aspects of yourself.

There are infinite aspects to the dharma and if this does not speak to your current condition may you quickly find a stream to suit you… and if this stream and river should help you find your own way then any merit arising is dedicated to the welfare of all sentient beings.

Whichever way you go… the very best of luck!

The following advice is from the simplybeing  website: “According to the tradition, in order to bathe in the living stream of the dzogchen lineages, it is important to make steps to gain transmission from a living teacher and it is unhelpful to use the teachings for selfish purposes.”

This website contains some information and also bits and pieces… looking at the world through different dharma lenses including dzogchen.

If you would like to develop a greater understanding of the dzogchen view then one way to go would be to work your way through the Macclesfield talks on the audio section of the simplybeing.co.uk website, slowly allowing it to permeate through and through as the view is expounded.

‘Note to self’ :

  Light + concept = pseudo-entity   In the speed of interactions in the world – will i remember the truth of this? [from Macclesfield talk 08 Integrating-the-dzogchen-view-with-basic-buddhist-practice/ ] Any time i tighten or freeze and ‘make something of it’ i know that i’ve got lost in a situation and fused with concepts, with my thoughts or…

Doing the ‘hokey cokey’…..

‘You put your whole self in – you put your whole self in, you put your whole self out, in out – in out, shake it all about… ‘  ‘that’s what it’s all about’. Maybe this can be a good metaphor for effective practice!… particularly tantra and dzogchen. Before I went to sleep as a child there…

Bull in a china shop

When I started with a little group in  Tiverton some years ago James suggested that I could ‘take along pens knives scissors chopsticks and so on’… or words to that effect. Sometimes, in order not to interrupt the flow, I trust that things will become clearer in time or through engagement… if I asked him anything…

Emerson 2016 recordings now available

The recordings are at last ready to listen to…you can click the link in the title below. There have been quite a few provocations for those of us involved with this set of recordings. Even at the end there’s a little smiley one…I had suggested saying ‘audio-edited by w.c.’ as it perhaps looks less like wc–toilet …but….. never mind!…
