Re: The Future

People have been saying whether one becomes a buddhist has something to do with the person's merit and karmic connection. So..I am wondering....

Re: My grandmother died

They said this terma of Buddhas epithet revealed by Nyala Pema Duddul is used by many lamas in Tibet these days to benefit the dead. It is liberation by hearing. The person who recite it need not have high realisation or good practices. This teaching is available in chinese language by the tulku who...

Re: Benefits of Medicine Buddha Mantra

Medicine Buddha is indeed a popular and widely recognised as suitable practices for sentient beings in this degenerate age. It is so popular that almost every Vajrayana centres and monasteries practiced it on a regular basis just like green tara pujas. In the general Mahayana, it is also well recogn...

Re: The siddhi of winning wars

It is very clear that whatever subduing activities that kill certain beings that an accomplished yogi used is accompanied by his subsequent activities to liberate such beings to a more favorable state. If he can't liberate such beings that he has killed, he is not allowed to perform such activities ...

Re: The siddhi of winning wars

Any point that fully enlightened beings still use seemingly relative means to achieve aims in the relative worlds is: Guru Rinpoche use of smoke offering to pacify local spirits and protectors that obstructed the construction of Samye monastery.

Re: The siddhi of winning wars

I don't know what Greg means, but in Sambhogakaya and Nirmanakaya forms I don't believe Buddhas are "obeying laws". They can, nevertheless, choose to act conventionally eg Guru Rinpoche appearing to study the various forms of Buddhism, after finding his less conventional ways of appearing were not ...

That makes sense but, do you still need mantras etc at that point? Do you not just sort of have those abilities at that point? Even the Buddhas have to obey dependent origination, law of cause and effect etc...so if mantras are one of the cause for certain phenomena to arise, then the enlightened b...

Re: Dzongsar Khyentse on the importance of Mahayana

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche's observation is quite spot on but I read it as it is just a general observation and his words is not intended to be too precise. I'll like to add that this probably does not applies to westerners as most of the earlier westerners that are drawn to Vajrayana are genuinely ...

Re: The siddhi of winning wars

I thought Tantras cannot be read literally and that is why we need pith instruction from a Guru in order to understand and know how to practice them correctly? The mantra of Hevajra itself, contains words like "Slay slay......bind, bind...the enemies" but I don't think they should be understood lite...

Re: Gangteng Rinpoche: Buddha really was a giant

Then perhaps you can email Rinpoche and tell him how he can do a better job dealing with his own students, complaining on this forum seems to be accomplishing nothing other than perhaps rubbing people the wrong way. This can perhaps be considered. I am not the one bringing up the issue of 40 dilapi...
