Re: Random Thoughts

I shall look around for 'ye shes' It's a very fundamental term in Tibetan Buddhism, often spelled 'yeshe' and translated as 'wisdom'. Thinley Norbu Rinpoche has quite a bit to say about it in "A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar". As for incense, I'm about out. I've been searching for something that ha...

Re: What is pure and defiled according to nyingma

Just as a point of information, the sutra you are quoting is not one that the Tibetan Buddhist schools read.

Re: Santa La Muerte

Well, I think it actually makes sense. Where we say "death" to refer to the general phenomenon of dying etc. the Spanish say "la muerte", not just "muerte". But, traditionally, in all the rest of the saints, the name following their title is their name. Hence Santa Muerte. She is death. It just mak...

Re: Santa La Muerte

Incidentally, the OP is incorrectly entitled. It should be "Santa Muerte", not "Santa La Muerte", which is not grammatical in Spanish. It's true that it should be "Santa Muerte" but I'm not so sure that "Santa La Muerte" would not be acceptable in Spanish, since "San La Muerte" appears to be. Fair ...

Male penises? Aren't they all male?
You should meet the people I hung out with in university....

They'd call you 'problematic' for saying that. Maybe there is a reason I don't hang out with them anymore.

I get called that a lot. :cry:

Re: Jim Carrey does a no-self bit

Just watched Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton, which I found very interesting. I think it sheds a lot of light on what's going on with him and is definitely related to the topic of this thread.

Re: Importance of Memory in Dharma

It's worth knowing that the Buddhist term which has come to be translated as 'mindfulness', i.e. 'smṛti' or 'dran pa' in Tibetan, basically means remembering or memory.

Rebirth is the flying spaghetti monster of Buddhism.

Personally, I would say that karma vipaka is the true flying spaghetti monster of Buddhism.
