Connection Support

Where is the video?

<h1>Connection Support</h1>page you should see a link in the black area called "video", try clicking on it.

Triangle with exclamation mark in the player?

If in the player window you see a triangle with exclamation mark, probably the servers are not getting any stream from the source. If this continues, we suggest you to try using the old webcast system. This could also be due to the webcast not being already started so please check the time schedule.

The old audio system will be available for this webcast, however we suggest to use it only if necessary (if your computer / mobile phone doesn't support Flash or in case of problems with your connection or from the source of the webcast).

The page seems stuck!

If pressing the stop button (black squared one) and the again the play button (black triangle) in the player doesnt do anything, just try reloading the page.

Can't see the player?

If in the upper part of this webcast you dont see the player (black box with buttons), it probably means you dont have Flash plugin installed. To be sure try to open Youtube(tm) website, it will tell you if you need to update the plugin in your browser.

Mandarava Chudlen Retreat
Chögyal Namkhai Norbu received the teaching of the Practice of Mandarava while doing a retreta with students at Maratika, the famous place sacred to Padmasambhava and Mandarava.
“The Chüdlen we are doing is connected to a Long Life Practice. In general, Long Life Practice is useful for strengthening one’s protective energy. This is important in all senses. To be able to have some realization through certain practices, first of all one needs to be healthy and free from physical problems. Even if you are not dedicating yourself only to the practice you need to live well in daily life and you only live well when you do not have problems, that is, when your energy is perfect and especially when your protective energy is healthy. If your energy has some weak points it needs to be reinforced, so we have to know how to do that. This is one of the principles of the Long Life Practice. Many people think that the Long Life Practice is a kind of prayer, just to receive a kind of blessing, but it’s not like that. This practice means working with oneself, using visualization, mantras and Chüdlen pills.”

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu - from an Oral Commentary given at Merigar, August 1986
