Re: Where have all the Kagyupas gone?

... many of Milarepa's meditation sites, such as Lapchi. Many Drikungpas continue to do long retreat there to this day. Drikung Kagyu does not have karmamudra as a lineage. Mila gave that to Rechungpa not Gampopa. After Milarepa died Gampopa went back and got some more stuff from Rechungpa. Gampopa ...

Ironically this lineage which has karmamudra practice as one of its core practices is at present practiced exclusively by monastics (at least outside of Tibet). Much of Rechung Kagyu ...

Re: Non-Duality in Dzogchen vs Advaita Vedanta

... It isn't like a ladder, it is like a circular stairway. The Pratimoksha Vows for a monk start with celibacy, and the last Vajrayana practice is karmamudra. The Shravakayana view is that all of life is suffering, and the Vajrayana view is that it is all a buddha realm. The Shravakayana has hundred ...

Re: Anti-Tibetan Buddhism Signs

It's sort of strange to me that as soon as we start talking about integrating sexuality into our practice that our calibration point becomes karmamudra, the path of the lower door, which requires a tremendous amount of training as a foundation. There's a huge amount of bandwidth between just ...

Re: Anti-Tibetan Buddhism Signs

It still bewilders me why we presume karmamudra is the only method to take sexuality onto the path.
