Re: The Worship of Donald Trump

He speaks tariffs into existence and unites war-torn nations. He lives in a great white palace and can fly throughout the world. He can screenshot your device and track you via satellite. He speaks to the masses through a tweeting blue bird. He has the power to increase the amount of income tax ret...

Re: An auspicious day at Garchen Buddhist Institute

The monk was probably Khenpo Tenzin, Garchen Institute's resident lama. He's studying English and is the go-to guy for when Rinpoche is away due to his teaching itinerary and/or personal retreat. Yes, that was the monk. He showed me around the grounds, as it was my first visit there. A gentle and l...

Given Brunnhölzl's track record of other outstanding books, I have high hopes for this one as well. From the Amazon blurb, A ke...

An auspicious day at Garchen Buddhist Institute

Was in Los Angeles a couple of days ago and decided to drive over to see Garchen Buddhist Institute today. By sheer coincidence I was there when the full moon eclipse was happening. A monk and some of the residents assembled at that time to make a smoke offering and recite the Prayer of Kungtuzanpo ...

Re: What's the point of abusive gurus?

Ok. Lots of posts removed. Some of them may find there way into a split off topic (or not). I don't have the time to sift through them this evening so see if there is anything worth salvaging. For now, carry on with the discussion of what's the point of abusive gurus?

Re: Karma, "soulmates" etc

So, I'm curious what anyone's take, including the actual Buddhist official outlook is on "soul mates", chance encounters, predestined relationships and all that. ... Perhaps the nearest I know of to a soul mate story in Buddhism is the relationship between the Buddha and his wife, Yashodhara. Here ...
