Re: Minimum prerequisites for physical karmamudra practice?

... no? If you are following a vajrayana path you have to be realistic about how far you will be able to get in this lifetime. And for most of those karmamudra is not going to be on the menue this time around. So no reasion to look for a partner that would theoretically be suitable. The yoga of passion, ...

Re: Minimum prerequisites for physical karmamudra practice?

The Buddhist couples I know have a far harder go of it. With a couple of exceptions, the children of Western Buddhist parents I know would not go within 50 metres of a dharna centre. They see them as places of competition, jealousy and disharmony, even though many believe the teachings are sound. I...

Re: Minimum prerequisites for physical karmamudra practice?

It's the choice of the teachers. They could still do it as it has been done in the past, giving empowerment and teaching vajrayana meditation strictly to people who are actually going into retreat. There are lamas who still handle it that way. Sure. In Sakya's Lam Dre, where these instructions are ...

Re: Minimum prerequisites for physical karmamudra practice?

Yes plwk, that is the place- traditional Hindu community led by mostly Western swamis. Nice people, certainly generally more congenial than most Western Vajrayanists. More harmonious too , despite tantric injuctions about how to relate to vajra siblings that we find in our tradition.

Re: Minimum prerequisites for physical karmamudra practice?

If you are practicing the sadhana, whether you have done any retreat or not, you should be practicing the yoga of passion if you have a partner. Therefore, that partner better be a fellow practitioner, no? I will take your word for it. Frankly, very little of this was taught, as it is expected in K...

Because they are both spiritual practitioners there is little conflict. The Buddhist couples I know have a far harder go of it. With a couple of exceptions, ...

Re: Minimum prerequisites for physical karmamudra practice?

And that's not the case because it's somehow an inheritantly "bad" thing and there needs to be a rule to prevent it, but simply because it's not practical. As I gave shown above, there are actually rules against it, in principle. M The rules exist BECAUSE it's impractical. There will alwa...
