Welcome

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!

Based near Exeter, and teaching buddhism and dzogchen, Wendy is a disciple of James Low and a teacher in the lineage of James Low and C. R. Lama.

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.

Here is a list of links  to the audios and videos currently available in this set of teachings.

Homme-âgé – reflections 3

Evening time meditating in the graveyard Birds, bats, thoughts flitting Father-in-law dying   shimmerings of the infinite   the shift to con-fusion with false identities   It’s when, it’s when, and only when see… and stop the conning and the fusion and then, and then, and only then we feel ourselves at-oned, at home again.

Homme-âgé – reflections 2

Evening time – meditating in the graveyard… birds, bats, and thoughts flitting… father-in-law dying  from old age… this world, from lack of love from  lack of wisdom   All this confusion breeds,  hatred,  greed… and our pollution from tensions, torsions –   all distortions and contortions  stops   only when we stop the conning and…

Homme-âgé – reflections 1

Once of a time he made – sandcastles by the sea and kites that flew…life opening… so much that he could be He studied hard, his knowledge grew, at university he made ‘things’ from new materials… …he made his girlfriend blush married, made babies, made the children laugh, (did he… or did I imagine that?)…

The perils of perching – advice for parrots!

Whatever the position taken up with assertion, the egoic or  separated sense-of-self will cling to that self-created perch for stability. With fear of falling from that perch (or being pushed) the claws tighten and tension in the body increases. There is a locking on and locking up which makes release and flying far less likely……

Woolly minded!

In mid July I was in a little tent with some friendly faces talking about the view of dzogchen under the title ‘Who dies, who dances?’ Over the years I have taken different props with me, from crystal droplets to bubble blowers. This time it was to be a little box of sheeps wool collected…
