Nagarjuna and the Nagas

I am not very learned, hence pls apologize my maybe stupid question: When Nagarjuna brought several Prajnaparamita texts from the nagas: - which texts were these? - was this (is this) Nagaland (East India)? - was it this journey though which he obtained his name? - I usually thought that the source ...

Re: Dream Yoga

A would second Johnny’s recommendation for the keeping of a dream journal. Record your dreams in as much detail as possible soon after waking ..they soon fade. This signals to the dreaming faculty the fact that you will listen carefully to what is being conveyed. One technique I have found useful i...

Re: Pausing sadhanas

Maybe to round it up with quotes from "Being Guru Rinpoche" by James Low: (…) That's one of the reasons why I myself don't like to do these tantric rituals with anyone else, because I like to do them in a way that makes sense for me. This means, if I do part of the practise and I don't like how I've...

Re: Why do monks and nuns deny Romantic Sexual Love?

V- each moment and again you can decide for yourself whether you engage in the fun part of life and endure the not-so-fun part - the full hammering spectre of samsara or if you choose the dharmic path until you sure enough can venture both at the same time whilst excepting you from the karmic treadm...

image of Pema Tötreng Tsal

on the one hand this is supposed to be just another (secret) name for Padmasambhava - from this I take it's NOT an emanation of his
on the other hand his image is different -red and youthful.
Can someone please explain how that works together

and provide with an image? :anjali:

Re: Seriously approaching Semde on ones own

Look for yourself which works for you how and when. Each person on the path needs to get to know themselves and see how to work with how they are. Like the veenah / violin, don't pull the string too firm, neither too loose. Some plan is good, but not too severe, how can you relax and let go otherwis...

Re: Learning a lesson

I have noticed that you use the term ‘ego’ a lot. As it does not equate to any concept in either Theravada or Mahayana philosophy, being as it is a term invented by western psychology, it might be useful if you defined it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcS04BI2sbk abt 55-61 mins I mean, whole mee...
