Re: Pure Land practice and Vajrayana (HYT)

How many of you have practiced Vajrayana? Have you received anuttara-yoga-tantra or inner tantra initiation? Can you practice both? Can you maintain and purify samayas with Amituofo? Do you feel you can achieve rebirth there solely with Amituofo-chant? Can you rely exclusively on other power with s...

Re: Dzogchen and Mahamudra: differences and similarities

Yeh, insulting other ones teachers and also here the members in public that should always be avoided, out of respect, so i have learned that by the years. But sometimes it happens. I have nothing but respect for Loppon Tenzin Namdak, but I think the Bonpos are mistaken on this particular point. YMM...

Re: Dzogchen and Mahamudra: differences and similarities

Yes, but that takes three incalculable eons, not in one lifetime. But the point of contention has been whether sutrayana method can or not and not about the length of time each methods will require. That said, I have been wondering the stance that sutrayana takes three incalculable eons to attain p...

Re: Dzogchen and Mahamudra: differences and similarities

I don't know much about the person, but Khenpo Acho is a modern practitioner (1998?) that is said to have achieved rainbow body. May I ask if anyone knows of cases where a practitioner of dzogchen (either Buddhist or Bön) achieved a full-fledged Rainbow Body of Great Transference (jalus phowa chenp...

Re: Mahamudra and Dzogchen

What is everyone's opinion of Mahamudra and Dzogchen? How good are they? Are they similar in a way? They're both pretty cool, and really good (some might argue they're the best). They're both similar depending on how you view it, but also very different depending on how you view it, but ultimately ...

Re: Yidams on a bikini

I of course would want for these things like yidams and so on to be respected, even not ever used and abused by those who have not received them and are not qualified to receive them. But I also understand that in this kind of world, a world inhabited by sentient beings, that is not really ever goin...

This time, they get all they want, because Trump and his team are a bunch of dummies voted into office by another bunch of dummies. Getting played left and right nonstop.

Re: Humanity's decline

Isn't there some story about Kumarajiva being forced to reproduce by some Chinese king or whatever? Maybe we need something like that nowadays. The idea of Trump ordering people to make babies... blech . It's probably on the pee tape, though. That's what some LDP politician whose name escapes me sa...

Re: non-physical heat during dzogchen meditation

It's a good thing there are teachers who are not foolish and unintelligent. It's also a good thing that the listed criteria when first investigating and deciding on a teacher is much broader in scope than physical demonstrations of sidhis. I'm not sure you know enough about these systems to assert ...

Re: non-physical heat during dzogchen meditation

ZOOM,

If you don't have a qualified teacher of Dzogchen, there is no Dzogchen to be practiced.

Re: non-physical heat during dzogchen meditation

You should perhaps communicate these things with the teacher from whom you received Dzogchen, because it seems you need some specific clarification.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

:? I don't get the Rushens thing, Rinpoche has done Rushens plenty on open webcasts. First day was great though. Yeah but I think it's because Rinpoche was giving transmission for them. I suspect they don't want people attending who don't already have transmission (like Mantrik mentioned). You mean...
