Re: HE Zong Rinpoche Dream

Last night I had a dream and HE Zong Rinpoche, the previous one, showed up. He was walking barefoot with a back pack made of American flag fabric. 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...

Re: Obstacle years

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.

Re: The DJKR Topic

There's all this back and forth about guru devotion, crazy wisdom, and pure perception but I can't imagine Atisha the Great, Lama Tsongkhapa, Gyalwa Ensapa, Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen, or Dharmabhadra, all Tantric Masters, doing anything even slight inappropriate. Therefore, Tantra isn't the problem. T...

Śākyamuni Buddha is a normal supreme nirmanakāya, fourth in a sequence of 1001.
What about other texts which place him as the sixth or a different number? I've seen the relics of Kasyapa, what evidence is there for earlier Buddhas?

Re: The Tantric Age: A comparison of Shaiva and Buddhist Tantra

The point I am not certain about (but have neither proof nor disproof) is the idea that tantric practitioners at the height of Buddhist tantric movement in India actually made any difference at all whether they were practicing "Buddhism" or "anything else". One must keep in mind that at that time t...
