Re: Getting the MOST out of ngondro

Hey DW community :) I am well into the Dudojom Tersar Ngondro, and it seems to be very good stuff.

“Compassion is Avalokiteśvara,
joy and equanimity are Mahāsthamaprāpta,
the ability to purify is Śākyamuni,
and universal directness is Amitābha.

Re: On being fearful of Shikantaza

...perhaps the issue is just that you need to relax.... Probably very true. there is an uncomfortable sense of urgency at times regarding 'time' and the need to 'achieve liberation' before time runs out (as it were) - particularly as we are so often told about how time flies and we should grasp at ...
