Re: Which heavens correspond

Some Abrahamic religions like Mormonism and some strains of Islam and Judaism do in fact have hell as an impermanent state. These are generally regarded as heretical by the orthodoxy in the religions, however.

Re: is the Following Permissible to Recite Without Transmission?

Lotsawa House's blub on the text reads as follows: This popular canonical work, which is included in the Kangyur (Tōh. 591), teaches the incantation (dhāraṇī) and rituals associated with the goddess Sitātapatrā, who is renowned for her power to avert or repel all types of spirits, demons, obstacles,...

Re: The origin of Vajracheddika Prajna Paramita Sutra

Hi guys, Simple and short question. Does anyone know the origin of Diamond Sutra? I read it quite a while some time ago but honestly I do not know, where does this Sutta come from? The Lord Buddha? True, but weren't the Prajnaparamita sutras lost in the realm of the Naga, and retrieved by Lord Naga...

Re: Sadhana of Buddha Sakyamuni

Hi all I have two questions. So, first is about sadhana on Buddha Sakyamuni by Mipham Rinpoche. I found this sadhana on the Lotsawa house, and actually there is no written how to end this meditation. I mean dissolving phase. Last sentence is "From the Buddha emanates a great radiance...." and that´...

The Buddha appeared in and taught to the sphere of humans. Therefore I would restrict the validity of his teaching to that sphere.
But Buddhas also appear in the other realms. I suppose the AIs, if they are subject to Dukkha, would get their own awesome TechoBuddha.

Re: Can I play Dungeons and Dragons?

My friends and I were looking to play DnD. I've never played before. The thought I'm currently grappling with is, well, is it ok? The character I would play, for those familiar with the game, a halfling druid. They're peaceful beings who can manipulate the natural world. The main issue I'm having i...

Re: contemplating mother's kindness

In Tibet most of the young monks would be tiny children when they were receiving the initial training in loving-kindness. They probably really missed their mothers.
