A bunch of you bitched about the thread title, but not one of you thought it might be a good idea to report the issue to a moderator to deal with.

Re: Is it rare to spew don’t time with you guru?

This whole question is about intensity and availability, right? The guru is part of the whole game. What about his/her willingness to make him/herself rather accessible or not. One of the functions of the teacher is not to be very interested in you. You are not as fascinating as you think James Low....

Re: Importance of Secrecy in Secret Mantra

It's something I've wondered about. A good backup provider encrypts all data, and obviously it's password protected etc. Technically it's probably safer than having hard copies of such material in your own home. Especially if you live with other people. I'm still a little uncomfortable with the ide...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

The sangha to be taken refuge in has a different meaning from the sangha that groups together for teachings, Puja etc. Do we all share that view? The former has already achieved already a certain realization stage, is somehow capable in protecting the Dharma, the latter whatever but probable rather ...

Re: Turning daily life into retreat

Personally, I perform my daily sadhanas in the bus in the morning and afternoon during school days. During lunch, I fast and recite sutras and whatnot. As it is summer vacation(unfortunately, more "Christian security"), I do my sadhana for around 1.5 hours from anywhere between 10 PM - 12 AM Do you...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

On your last comment - obviously Sogyal was not a qualified guru. Anyone can learn the words and talk in a convincing way about, well, anything in a one-way monologue. The test of whether the gurus teachings were authentic has to come from your side. That said I see your point - there are teachings...

Re: Making changes.

Hi dialectbird, first of all it's good to see what you haven't looked into since. Take that as a positive sign. Second, have a look at that without labelling it "problem". It wants to show you something and it invites you to do something out of that. Third, first things first. If you follow the anal...

It's unfortunate that this feeling turned out to be accurate.
Not unfortunate for you, you see confirmation about how well your intuition works.
Trusting in intuition is a good practise.

Re: Tantric Empowerment and Dzogchen

Hi LoveFromColorado, my short sweet advice are: don't rush, take it easy if you don't feel like entering into tantric samayas, don't do it. Start to look and trust for your intuition. There are personalities that work with dzogchen only, directly jump into the nonconceptual. Others need the visualiz...
