This is a little random, but since both metal genres and politics have come up, what about a little Nu Metal... ...as covered by a brass band!? (I just love this and don't often have a reason to share it ...arguably I might not have a reason now!) https://youtu.be/bGV1xYJFAEI This is how metal song...

Re: Mongolian metal!? ...yes

I'm certainly not going to go to the mat for it, but I'm curious of your criteria. The drums sounded like it to me, and I think it's heavier than a lot that would unquestionably fall under the blanket of metal (not even counts g Ghost, current top metal band that sounds pop to me. YMMV, to begin wi...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Look like a very brief Introduction. I'll wait for the ebook. Is it something actually written by Rinpoche, or another compilation? I read the blurb as referring to his teachings and presentation........but that's not to say it isn't a compilation: ''These teachings, presented here by Chögyal Namkh...

Re: Merging With The True Self While Dying by Elio Guarisco: Why?

defend There is nothing here to defend, really. If there is, it means we are accusing not only Elio but also Garchen Rinpoche, at least two sons of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, James Low, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, Thrangu Rinpche, the notorious Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, e...

Re: Merging With The True Self While Dying by Elio Guarisco: Why?

Elio has said he would do it differently so probably no need to worry about him becoming an advaitin. Grigoris is right, this is better to take to the man himself. Trust me no one is worried about Elio becoming an Advaitin, certainly not I. He only reconsidered controversial epigraph after the Vajr...

While I think this is absolutely silly, i'll let the thread continue if it generates something productive, but IMO given the recent requests regarding behavior, it's pretty borderline.
The thread is absolutely silly, and the timing is very bad.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Shang Shung has two DVDs on Chod -"Teachings on Chod" and -"Practice of Chod" The former is a DVD and the latter is an MP4 DVD. Sometimes I've ordered books that have been different editions of the same product; does anyone know if these two DVDs contain the same information, or if they are compani...

You’re only posing a narrow opinion. Be open to others usages and don’t proselytize. I’m very tired of pushy opinions.

No point in talking like that. I'll pass this one.
