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.

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…

Life……….and death………..and life….

I’m delighted to announce… well, the news isn’t really mine to announce but a new little life came safely into the world this spring… only slightly delaying the arrival onto the simplybeing website of the audios of the 19th  Macclesfield talk which James gave in March – Working with life and death. May all beings be…

birthday’s blossoms…

      I planted this blossom tree  in my garden some years ago – with  prayers for felicity and growth in dharma realisation of all students, all practitioners, all beings always…all ways… astonishing and multifarious, the ’empty’ truth displays itself no matter what we make of it, it’s never something else   so, for…

Sparks – a bonfire of the vanities, revealing….

Just an attention grabbing line, i hope… in case you haven’t noticed this latest, very beautiful, publication… ‘Sparks’ by James Low. Although one can dramatically ‘burn the vanities’… until the underlying sense of need for covering is gone, sooner or later, replacements will be sought. By inspiring, allowing them right in, the marks on these pages…
