Re: Books on karma

Can you recommend good books on karma? Are there any which goes to details? Are there any in pdf-format? Actually the "Sutra of Karma" exists. from the essence and examples given there many, many, generalizations can be deducted. http://tbsn.org/english2/sutra.php?id=6&keyword=&pa...

Re: Deep Breath in Buddhism

through specific mix of breathing and concentrations we can induce diferent mental states.
in tibetan buddhism there are pranayamas for pacifying our mind for example.
look for pranayama information, that might help

best regards

Re: Please, do not share "secret teachings" online, with anyone.

Re: Is Māra a deva?

it is also a demon who holds the wheel of death and rebirth. That would actually be a depiction of Yama(raja), the Lord of Death. Does anyone know why Mara would be considered a Deva (god), rather than an Asura (jealous god/ demigod/ antigod/ titan)? I thought Devas in general were benevolent, wher...

Re: Is Māra a deva?

yes, thus as he also reproduces desire it is also a demon who holds the wheel of death and rebirth. but mara is more a point of view even if there is a creature called mara, this is how i see it. this condition is described in the Brahmajala Sutra. have you wonder how the "Ethernal God" id...

Are there Bodhisattvas that are reborn in the lower realms (hell, hungry ghost, animal, asura)? yes but only voluntarily because of Bodhicitta.

Re: Role of Yidam in acquiring siddhis

Thanks for your reply, I concur with that. But when Guru Rinpoche poses as a rhetoric question: «If there is no yidam, where is the source of siddhis?» Does this mean that in the Vajrayana only there is no source of siddhis without deity yoga? For in the ‘Sutrayana’ (Zen or whatever) there obviousl...
