Re: Tonglen Resources

I hope this finds everyone well! As many of you know, we are working to create a group to support Buddhist practitioners in whatever tradition and whatever location they may be. I have been fascinated with tonglen (and lojong) practice for years and have made several attempts to practice on my own ...

Re: Tonglen Resources

Sorry to bring that up but my point was that his explanation of tonglen was the best i so far encountered and i was completely surprised (rightly or wrongly so).

Bodhichitta - What Is It?

Namo Buddhaya! As a result of my renewed interest in tonglen practice and lojong I find myself puzzling again over the ideas of absolute and relative bodhichitta. Am I wrong to see bodhichitta as more or less karuna paramita? When I read the lojong commentaries it really isn't made any clearer which...

Re: Tonglen Resources

I am familiar with and own many of the books mentioned but i food the covering the material over again is always helpful. I just bought a book by Chogyam Trungpa although i was quite doubtful that i would learn anyt...

I actually own the book but I haven't found it too instructive in regards to tonglen. I would be interested to know how DW members pr...

Re: New forum: Dharma Paths Practice Community

I think what you guys are trying to do is wonderful and hope it succeeds beyond all expectations. That said I would not dismiss Malcolm's concerns - it is all too easy to become a clique and all fora suffer from this to some extent. On the other hand if we keep it real, share about our practice as ...

Re: New forum: Dharma Paths Practice Community

Don't let the vajrayana chauvinism get you down. I'd like to participate. At this point, I'm locked out of DharmaPaths in much the same way I was with DhammaWheel. Arya Shantideva is one of my favorites. In fact, the Bodhicaryavatara was my first introduction to Buddhism and I still refer to it. I ...

Arya Shantideva is one of my favorites. In fact, the Bodhicaryavatara was my first introduction to Buddhism and I still refer to it.

Re: New forum: Dharma Paths Practice Community

I'm sorry but I don't understand. Could you clarify?

I am far from perfect and break the precepts from time to time but I take them as my minimum standard of conduct. That is all that is being asked. And, if this doesn't appeal to people, then they're is no compulsion to join of course.

Re: New forum: Dharma Paths Practice Community

I see you're not interested in joining Malcolm. We would be happy to change the name to paramitas and we chose the name Dharma Paths rather than Dhamma Paths in order to be more inclusive. There is no end to fault finding but consider this: in our own imperfect way we are trying to support the pract...

I've registered, but can't post, and can't check my messages now. We have a section devoted to the paramis and would be happy to add others as the need and desire for them became apparent. The one requirement is that we asknow all members to have taken refuge and try their best to follow the five p...
