Re: Name for a certain category of text

Shastra which is a commentary or treatise.

All the Indian shastra are all gathered into the "Tengyur".

Each Tibetan master has his or her own "Sungbum" or collected works which also includes letters and other non-treatises.

Re: Falling sick from a practise?

Put the tip of your tongue behind your teeth on the palette. Relax the chest. Breath from the lower stomach below the belly button (navel chakra). Feel it as vast and heavy.

Bring the energy down.

I was so happy and crying in my dream and then I woke up. Does anyone know if the current HE Zong Rinpoche is coming to America and, if so, where and wh...

It does not matter when in the centipede year you were born, if you were born the day before the centipede year becomes the millipede year, you are still a centipede and it is still your obstacle year from new years onward. So the year after your birth year is an obstacle year? No, if you were born...

In any case, the five precepts are not a part of the 4NT, and as far as right livelihood goes...I think you are being a tad idealistic. The Noble Eightfold Path is the fourth Noble Truth.
