Re: Vajrakilaya Practice

All good Mano! I just wanted to make it clear that "technically" speaking one can read without. Just so our original poster has an alternate answer for his query. But I wholeheartly agree that it is absolutely BEST to receive all the goods before diving in to such texts. I'm WAY more of a don't bot...

Oh, okay so I guess I should reply. :D Yeah I did not say it is a fact. It is purely my opinion. That is why I wrote "I do not see", not "there is no point" or "scientifically there is no point".

Re: Vajrakilaya Practice

There is no point in reading them without the proper empowerments. Many people like to read books without the proper empowerments thinking they will gain some intellectual knowledge about the practices involved. Even if they do, it will be very little and leads to conflating practices with common M...

Re: Vajrakilaya Practice

To be fair, there are texts you can purchase that are available to the public. Like; The Practice of Vajrakilaya, The Dark Red Amulet: Oral Instructions on the Practice of Vajrakilaya, etc. If you're interested you can read these. Of course, in order to actually engage in practice and gain accompli...

Re: Egg-shaped vase-like thing next to Garab Dorje in images

lol ok, but what's the significance of depicting it in a lineage master's thangka? And seemingly only in those of master of Dzogchen, and always on the left, and so ornate for a mere storage bin? I've heard (by Malcolm?) that the "stuff" inside the egg shaped basket is all the tantric stuff. Bell a...

Re: Egg-shaped vase-like thing next to Garab Dorje in images

Does it symbolize holding the whole Dzogchen teachings, ie "Dzogchen pitaka"? If not, what does it symbolize? I only remember seeing it next to Dzogchen masters.

Re: Taking Empowerment as a Blessing

I didn't ask for this karma to ripen, just riding it out. Really puts it in perspective concerning what's important. If I'm going to be wrong, may everyone else be right... and may they save me from my stupidity. Just keep practicing. You'll be fine. First good advice all day! :bow: :cheers:

Totally my choice. I was an intellectual, & found peace elsewhere. Much like my stepmother stressed manners on the off-chance that the Queen would visit, I want to be ready for Vajrayogini in whatever form she takes.

Re: Dudjom Yangsi Dorje Drollö empowerment Toronto

Could you relay what you learn from Khenpo Sonam Rinpoche? I was also at this empowerment and I would love to put this into practice. I talked to Rinpoche yesterday and he himself wasn't exactly sure. So I think at this point if we really want to find out we have two options; 1: see if we can conta...
