Just like anyone who is interested can attend a teaching by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, His Holiness Sakya Trichen, and so on. You have to actively participate and then you receive it in a proper way. Then it can be beneficial.

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

I have doubts that the modern world has any use of divination.......... You serious? It is a massive massive business, from 'super forecasters' in politics and economics to those addicted to daily horoscopes. The 'modern world' is global, obviously, and people in many cultures look to spiritual sou...

Re: How to know which image is restricted? (Split from "Do you know this diety?")

The other thing to add is that the same people who say it shouldn't be public are the same people who will have a totally open public webcast, where they show the images, say the mantras, etc. Those webcasts are just as public as being online. And for that matter, some empowerment that is totally o...

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

I think the Ngakpa robes have deep spiritual meaning beyond what many of us will ever know...

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

I'm back to my original question: Why is this always such a hot topic? The reality of some people with vows wearing robes while some people with vows not wearing robes hardly seems challenging.

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

THE WEARING OF THE ACCOUTERMENTS IS PART OF THE PRACTICE'S SAMAYA. This is a bit of an exaggeration. I’ve received this empowerment three times, from three different lamas, not one of them ever asserted we were now obligated to wear ngakpa regalia. Your lama May have done so, YMMV. Thanks for chimi...

Re: Sten Anspal thesis question

Yes ! Rinpoche is a lineage holder of numerous Dzogchen teachings and cycles. With Norbu Rinpoche and Khetsün Sangpo, he is one of the rare lamas knowledgeable about Longdé (and whatever Man-ngag-sde you want to ask, from Khandro Nyingthik to Yangti Nakpo and so on). He is very enthusiastic when as...

Re: Sten Anspal thesis question

If you are looking for Longdé teachings, you should try to meet Tokden Rinpoche (of the Drigung Kagyüs). He received the complete transmission from Düdjom Rinpoche and taught the main texts on the Four Symbols from the Kama around the late 1980s in France. He very well knows how the practice should...

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

There are the Togdens in the Drukpa Kagyu, it is probably based on an empowerment. /magnus It is. But it's a different empowerment (ral pa'i dbang mchog, not the skra dbang). The Togdens have to be fully ordained monks to begin with. And they undergo their monastic curriculum in full, and then ther...

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

Ngakpa receive certain samaya via a specific empowerment. In the Dudjom Tersar the vows are given during the Throma Nagmo empowerment. Thank you. Are you aware of such empowerment in other traditions than Nyingma? There are the Togdens in the Drukpa Kagyu, it is probably based on an empowerment. /m...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

A bhikṣu etc., only commits parajika, a complete defeat, if he causes an abortion after the 19th week. Prior to that, causing an abortion is not considered killing a human being. Please cite where that can be found in the Vinaya. Hello Presto Kensho, I think you know why there was no citation given...
