Re: The Mind-Only Tradition

is properly a methodology, not a worldview, to realize no-self and emptiness. It is a means to and end rather than any sort of establishment or presentation of any reality. This is teaching! Using the method as something which is representing the truth, would make a worldview of it, would make it a...

Re: ¿What a buddhist title really means?

Yes, perhaps many for us unknown ones, realized Nature/Primordial Goodness, and guide unknowingly, benefitting all.
Since how can Nature/Primordial Goodness/Primordial Knowledge be known?!

Re: ¿What a buddhist title really means?

Hi Javier, As what has been told, all depends on our own perception, our karmic vision. There can be an emanation of Primordial Knowledge/Primordial Goodness but when we perceive a human who knows about the teachings of the Buddha, then we get teachings from such human. Or when we see a Bodhisattva ...

Re: Virtual reality and Dharma, many doubts about what to do

Hi ! :smile: It is dependent on ourselves whether we are conditioned by technology or it is a helpful source. It can be great to actually look better to each other and so work on patience, care and discover the reason why the Buddha taught at least 84000 methods ( but much more as this is actually a...

Re: Gyatrul R. "On Deity Practice" part 1.

This teaching, I guess so, when understood ( nonconceptual), minds' game is over. No picking out of some forms/beings/things by its' grasping clinging to permanent solid form/being/thing, not realizing its' own story production about. Then there are also perceptions, dependent on karmic vision, whic...

Re: Gyatrul R. "On Deity Practice" part 1.

..................You are recognizing the true nature of your body as enlightened body. That is extremely good, because in this way you are familiarizing and habituating yourself not just to seeing ordinary form but to seeing the nature of ordinary form as enlightened form. This is how we train in ...

Re: TranscendIng self

Muni, In the video the female teacher says "Its stubbornness that doesn't want to take the teaching to heart" I'm not sure that statement is true. Its more likely that 5 senses draw us out to enjoy the world, creating a veil, concealing the truth or awakening. Thank you, dreambow. This pr...

Re: TranscendIng self

I try to understand and then remembered this https://www.tsoknyirinpoche.org/1429/the-four-egos-part-one-of-two/ but this is not what you are pointing to and so I come again by Bodhichitta. And then I remember these words: compassion means that you will have to suffer in order to help. I found these...

I understand the reactions by the people here. Anam Thubten is here not like Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche La introducing. He is introducing but not in that way over the net. Maybe you could say his talks are for his students, as a bell: remember, and perhaps for all in general regarding Dharma. When I nam...

Re: TranscendIng self

I guess many like to transcend this conceptual world, which is maintained by the sense of self. This sense of self is the source of all harm and suffering. A sense of self knowing all about selflessness is not useful and is not liberating. Since isn't liberation actually liberation from that sense o...

Re: Constant compassionate kindness

When leaving discussions, debates some moments for what they are, it becomes clear that without Bodhichitta there is no Dharma at all. I have been studying, reciting mantras, done kora, pilgrimages, retreats..., but even given by Enlightened Emanations, what sense it makes without connection on that...

Re: Can a person be a hungry ghost?

How do wisdom grow ? With love. The more we are self-centered, the more energy takes dark shades. The more we grow and have compassion, the more energy shines with wisdom.

Re: Remembering one dharma talk I heard

Hi Berry, Agree, thoughts are very useful in daily life, they can just be. But awareness remains hidden when we are dragged away by them ( 'we' is then a thought too). As then 'we' live in the story-movie making mind, which we believe to be truth. Such wandering mind-thoughts are completely unnecess...
