Re: texts/teachings on problems of alcohol

Thanks all, I was hoping to find something which went into detail about the results of alcohol consumption (even better if related to effects on vajrayana practice) to serve as reminders, as well as something which went over the benefits of abstention. I know it's pretty basic stuff but I thought i...

Hello friends, I am excited to share the news of Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche's aspiration to establish a Gomde in Canada! The announcement was made a few days ago on the auspicious Guru Rinpoche Day.

Re: Short Daily Tsok Practice

In Nyingma, the two most important days of the month for tshog are 10 days after New Moon, i.e., the 10th day, and 10 days after the Full Moon, i.e., the 25th day. The reason we do tshog on these two days has to do with the lung flowing through the channels. Usually we do Guru tshog on the 10th day...

Re: Short Daily Short Practice

I know that often in retreat it is common to do tsok daily. I have a main (much longer) practice which I try to do most days, but is it common to do a short tsok each evening as well? I have the transmission and instructions for Mipham's "Shower of Blessings" and I think it is perfect for this purp...

Re: Can bad karma from slander of the Buddha be erased through sadhana?

It is said that the one good thing about bad karma is that it can be purified. In Vajrayana, all bad karma can be purified, including the five sins of immediate consequence (which would otherwise take you to Hell as soon as you die without even entering the bardo). The key to purifying any and all ...

The last time I looked at the site there were many other puja's that they offered in addition to the ones on the main page. I will have to have a closer look later on.

Re: Nyigma and Kagyu differences

Please could someone tell me, what are the main differences between Nyigma and Kagyu schools of tibetan buddhism? I think that, in terms of talking about tantra, it's better to say "Nyingma as contrasted to Sarma" than to say Nyingma contrasted with Kagyu, or Sakya, etc. :good: I think this is a ve...

Re: Nyigma and Kagyu differences

Too late to edit my earlier post, so I must correct it here... True, there are several Kagyupa's that were treasure revealer's, but in this case then those terma's would probably be presented in terms of the Nyingma approach, since terma's (for the most part) come from the lineage of Guru Rinpoche a...

a difference i know is that nyigma have anuyoga and kagyu does not. Well, quite a few schools of kagyu have some terma teachings so some version of anuyoga is probably present.

Re: The Ease of Receiving Empowerments

One of the amazing things about Vajrayana is how many skillful means are at our disposal for both accumulating merit, and for means of purification which includes our samaya. Ultimately, doesn't samaya in it's simplist form come down to having pure perception? How many of us can keep that pure perce...
