Re: Taking Apart Ngondro

As I have been taught in the Nyingma System, the Ngondro practice itself represents a complete wisdom, it is a complete practice. & so even if we are only doing Refuge, we would also briefly recite the other sections of the Ngondro. I was recently talking to a lama about the longchen nyingtik ngond...

you'll find a bumpa on the shrine, which laypeople use for "Chab" (blessing the daily shrine offerings in the morning).
Is this done with the peacock feather?
Yes.

Re: Vajrayana and emotion in daily life

We transform the five kleshas into their corresponding wisdoms by merely recognizing their emptiness. Recognition of desire is the wisdom of discriminating awareness, etc. It's not that you recognize the klesha's inherent nature and then you have other great meditative experience or gain some other...

Re: Pausing sadhanas

Absolutely. While I do like group practice, it is daily practice which I feel we can get much deeper into providing we have the time. Though sometimes I do have to "rush through" practice a little as a trade off for family life, I find if I can really pause at certain parts of the sadhana it is so h...

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...

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: 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 ...
