Re: Kagyu Monlam live on FB- who is this lama?

How can I access the simultranslation? This was the link tha...

Re: Kagyu Monlam live on FB- who is this lama?

I've been tuning into the live cast of the Kagyu Monlam on FB a little for the last couple of days, around 8pm Mountain Time- I don't speak Tibetan, who is this lama teaching? Not the Karmapa, he's maybe late 50's, wears glasses... ...Robes, shaved head... Benchen Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche. They have ...

Shughendo



Very interesting! I don't know if shughendo is explicitly buddhist ,but I certainly noticed some symbols common with indo-tibetan vajrayana (malas and bells namely).

Re: Anguta Sutra

I have very little information about this sutra; it is referenced in Thinley Norbu Rinpoche's autobiograpghy "A Brief Fantasy History of a Himalayan". He includes a qoute from the sutra which discusses the romantic appeal of women to men and vice versa. This seemed like a somewhat unique topic for a...

Issues with 8 classes

Some time ago, a dear family member of mine spent some time consuming hallucinogenic plants under the care of a South American shaman. Ever since then, his behavior has been extremely erratic and he has essentially jumped from cult-like religious organization to cult-like self help group to self-app...

Qualifications of a Lama

So, I have read some books (WoMPT and various other ngondro commentaries) that speak to the characteristics and learning that a qualified lama should have. Nonetheless, I still feel mystified when trying to discern the qualities of famous lamas. It seems difficult to determine how somebody is if you...

Also the names of these Nyingma Rinpochees are important to know. Thanks Nyingmapa hats - 00.jpg They are not necessarily monastic hats. Not all...

Do you think that this is party line for both sides? Or is just what Beru Khyentse R hopes will be beneficial at the present time?

Thanks.

Re: Tilopa

Garchen Rinpoche regularly teaches Tilopa's Ganges Mahamudra .. Would deepen the connection I imagine. Zurmang Gharwang Rinpoche is considered a rebirth of Tilopa. So perhaps the Zurmang kagyu has some related practices. Ganges Mahamudra is a port of call when the time is upon me. Zurmang Gharwang ...
