Tashi Deleg!

Welcome World!

My name is Domingo, and this is my little place in cyberspace.... I'm a practicing Nangpa (which means: Buddhist and Bönpo) since a couple of years now, studying mainly under the guidance of my precious teachers Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and Yongdzin Lopön Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche. I was born on the 13th day of the 4th lunar month, in the year of the water dog, 2109, in a place in the Northern Calcareous Alps which the Roman's used to call Clunia, and since the Swiss didn't want us back in 1919, the place where I reside is jestingly called "Kanton Übrig" .... In the 'virtual world' I'm generally known as "Nathanael" or "Nate" which is my second name. I called this blog "Nyima's blog", since "Nyima" is my other online-alias. Nyima is Tibetan and means "day" or "sun", and it's also the abbreviation of the word 'sa nyi ma' which means 'sunday' - so "Nyima" is in fact just the Tibetan translation of the spanish word "Domingo" which happened to be the name my parents gave me....

Currently I'm engaged in studying and practicing the training program of Norbu Rinpoche called Santi Maha Sangha, and I'm also studying the Abhidharmakosha at the moment, under the guidance of Loppon Kunga Namdrol, who is kindly sharing his encyclopaedic knowledge of the Buddhadharma via the World Wide Web, and I'm very thankful for that. You can visit abhidharmakosha.blogspot.com to get more information about the current Podcast courses of the Abhidharmakosha. At the moment I'm also working on transcriptions for Loppon Namdrol which will be published as soon as they're finished and corrected. Since quite recently, I'm also very much engaged in studying and practicing the Zhang Zhung Nyan Gyud from the Bön tradition.

I'm the webmaster of the Dzogchen Atiyoga Info Page, my personal website where I'm trying to collect and preserve all relevant information about the teachings on Dzogchen that I have come across on the internet during the last years [edit: this site is unfortunately down since a while, but I'm trying to put it online again as soon as possible]. And I'm the current webmaster of the official website of the Austrian Dzogchen Community as well.

Also, I work as chief project manager of a new small webdesign project consisting of a few freelancer web designers around the globe. This project is called Yuluka Webdesign.

Many Tashi Delegs,

Domingo aka Nyima aka Nate ;-)
