Re: Can any one help me know if I was born on Guru Rinpoche Day?

Hi there, Not exactly what you are asking, but your topic reminds me on: .. let devotion flood your body, speech and mind, and pray, pray with these seven lines: ཧཱུྃ༔ ཨོ་རྒྱན་ཡུལ་གྱི་ནུབ་བྱང་མཚམས༔ hung, orgyen yul gyi nubjang tsam Hūṃ!

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

I'm not trying to make a name as a hijacker, so pardon this slight deviation from the thread's current course, but what about Greek deities? They were already integrated (we might even say "converted") in ancient Buddhist Gandhara. No hijacking here, just curious. Honest. And Ancient Greek religion...

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

No. I'm sure it was Tolkein's 'Ork like an Egyptian'. Now you're just being ridorculous. http://www.song-list.net/thebangles/songs :Walk Like An Egyptian: is the only thing close to what you said : " "Wicc like an Egyptian" you are so full of it :smile: Well, maybe you've got a point there.

This made me think of that Bangles song, I think it was called something like "Wicc like an Egyptian".

Re: Maker Buddha

The Indian deity Vishvakarma is something like the "god of makers", and I believe he is revered by Buddhists as well as HIndus, so perhaps your friend would be interested in him.

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

People make mistakes....they can be forgiven. Did the Nechung Oracle make a mistake in this recognition of her as Mamaki ? They had a year to back out of it....but they went through a lot of preparation to make it happen. Do you think they did it just for the money ? Aren't there protocols to follo...

You must have been aware that it would have provoke criticism.

Meta-discussion much? Friend, almost everything remotely interesting provokes criticism.

Most of that which is "interesting" is not Dharma.

Duly noted.

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

Kalima and Krodhakali (Black, wrathful Vajrayoginī) are entirely different. The former is a worldly goddess, the later, well, Vajrayoginī. As for whether or not she engages in this practice, you will have to ask her personally. However, it is standard. Speaking of Kali Ma, a certain other Kali Ma t...

Speaking of Kali Ma, a certain other Kali Ma turned out to be a Rinpoche... Recognized by whom? Recognitions are relatively inexpensive, and prove nothing. Steven Segal, anyone? . Are you suggesting that the ex Kali Ma in question may have purchased her title? Anyway, my point is that people can de...

Is Yeye sacrificing animals tho? In some of the Krodhikali temples people behead goats even though that wasn't the original thing there. Kalima and Krodhakali (Black, wrathful Vajrayoginī) are entirely different. The former is a worldly goddess, the later, well, Vajrayoginī. As for whether or not s...

And that is not a historical fact ?

Now, now, KL, Malcolm does indeed have a history of being a bit oppressive towards some of the indigenous peoples of DW, but not exactly in a colonial way.
