Re: Please explain this photo to me

Hey Dharma Wheel folks, It has been some years since this thread was active, but I thought to bring about its resurrection as I'm looking for information on Khenchen Lama Pelgyeypa Dorje Rinpoche. While there is the Awam Institute website and the translations of his compositions on Erick Tsiknopoul...

Investigation can't hurt, but I do not seem to have downloaded a virus.

Re: Situation of Kalu Rinpoche

The reason I responded was because you asked the question. I think I am the guy most "representing" Shangpa around here, though I did not choose to be that guy, nor am I a mouthpiece for anyone but myself. I have a deep and abiding love and connection with the Shangpa Kagyu transmission and with th...

Well, then why respond? Did he do what he is accused of doing? He must have been quite young when the accusations were made.

Situation of Kalu Rinpoche

Does anybody close to Shangpa organizations in the US know about this? Is this just political nonsense?

Jnana and Dharmata

Is the union of Jnana and Dharmata synonymous with the union of mother and child luminosities?

So far the consensus of those close to the situation seems to be to stay very far away from this guy. So far nobody has said he is a great lama.

It just reminds me of the simple fact. This guys website smells like bullshit. It’s because of bullshit.

Relationship between Dzogchen tantras and Nyingthiks

What is the relationship between the 17 Dzogchen tantras and the Khandro/Vima Nyingthik? Are the latter two technically commentaries on some of the former 17? Is there actually still a tradition of giving lung/tri for the 17 tantras, or at this point, is the transmission of these texts largely inact...

Apparently so is Sogyal Lakar. :shrug:
Recognized by his mother, but not really enthroned, or recognized by anyone else as such.
Is the story of Khyentse Chokyi Lodro recognizing and enthroning him a fabrication?

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

Wow. Thank you for sharing this, I think there is a lot of benefit from people hearing these stories. Do you believe that "peaceful" gurus necessarily offer a sort of slower path than "wrathful" gurus as a rule? It just means those people have rough karma. And that is when the Guru is actually bene...

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

My point being, if you (we, me) are not willing to risk everything on the Vajrayana path, maybe you/we/me should not follow this path. As I’ve said elsewhere, maybe Vajrayana should not be taught to Westerners. Just a thought. Why? I don't think this is an obvious thing to conclude from Lama Pema's...

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

We're talking as if the branding of Jetsun Shuksep by Lama Pema Gyatsho was a great transgression and a crime against females. Having been Jetsun Shuksep's student in my last life and one of Her present Tulku's shabji for almost 20 years in this life, I don't see it that way. Just with Marpa and Mi...

Re: Lama Pema Dorje

Kye ma! Kye hu! The Dujom ngakpa, Lama Pema Dorje, entered parinirvana this morning. A great loss to the Dudjom lineage as well as to all Nyingmapa. Lama Pema Dorje was Lama Dawa Chodrak's older brother. Who are the most experienced masters of the Tersar left in the West? It seems like all of the o...

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

Not to minimize what seems to be a disturbing situation, but I have heard that there is actually not a vow. Apparently, Shambhala students are just told that studying with other teachers will simply be too much of a time commitment, and accordingly, Shambhala teachers discourage it. This information...
