Re: Question for those who carry a mala in daily life

On another aspect, aren't there two reasons for not being willing to have a mala on "open carry". Good reason is not to show off. Bad reason is not having the confidence to be seen as a Buddhist. But if that is us, only we know what our motivation is. what you say is true, i often don't tell anyone...

Re: Question for those who carry a mala in daily life

The text photographed by Adamantine underlines what seems to me to be common sense, though I'll admit to having taken a long time to get to this point, namely: have at least two malas. One serious, one knockabout. I've had my "serious" mala for about 45 years. Not only have I counted a lot of stuff ...

I am interested to learn whether there is an accepted Mahamudra symbol and if so, what it might be.
Short, clear, simple answer: no.

Individuals may have particular practices, of course, and may use seed syllables or OM AH HUM etc. etc.. But basically there just isn't such a thing.

Re: Tibetan Yogis & Their Multiple Yoginis Wives

Apart from the feats and appetite of some male tantrika, I'd really like to know where are the stories about women practicioners purposefully collecting their male consort-harem. :D Sera Khandro, mentioned above, might interest you then, especially as her life is a little closer to our time than, s...

Not too off-topic, I hope, but I do like the way you use the word "prompts" instead of misusing "begs". :smile:

It's just frustrating that his antics continue to occupy such a prominent place in the thinking of many US students of the Vajrayana.

Re: Google Rigpa Tibetan Buddhist Calendar online this year?

I want to warn some of you guys about this Drukpa calendar. When I recently (temporarily) installed it, I noticed that (on an Android, at least) it says that it needs to be able to identify my device and to know who I am talking to on the phone. I cannot remember the exact wording, and I am not goin...

Re: Google Rigpa Tibetan Buddhist Calendar online this year?

Shambhala lunar calendar at https://www.shambhala.com/tibetan-lunar-calendar/ Unfortunately I can't get the thing to do what it's supposed to, which is simply to add Shambhala's calendar to my own at one go. I don't know if that's a bug, a mistake on my part, or what. At the bottom right of the cal...

That is not the text I linked. I'll try again but I feel this is falling on deaf ears.
