Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

In case it's not clear for some, this decision was Rinpoche's own decision, not the SSI. He decided it should be like this several years ago.

Re: Tulsi Gabbard

I'm curious. With Buddhism being an anti-war religion, how can anyone calling themselves a Buddhist actively support a candidate who served in the Iraq war? I'm sorry, but you're not allowed to pull the "how can anyone calling themselves a Buddhist [...]" card, when this is what you yourself said s...

From Rangjung Yeshe Wiki: Now, without wanting to belittle the great achievments of Je Gampopa in the least, it has to be pointed out that Rechungpa has been consistently mispresented in Tibetan history, especially that of the various Kagyu lineages. The majority of historians of the Kagyu lineages ...

Re: Text/prayer table

You could also likely contact a local woodworker, give him or her a drawing of the kind of table you want, and ask what it would cost (shouldn't be much). That way you could get something super sturdy and you'd support local business too. And if you're adventurous you could make one yourself. It's n...

Re: Dzogchen outside of Tantra

But is there anyone teaching it in it's pure form nowadays? I made distinction between Tantra and Dzogchen as it is historically-provable distinction. It is not so, from a text critical POV. The earliest, datable text we possess that uses the term “Dzogchen” is the Guhyagarbha, a tantra belonging t...

Young men often ordain temporarily in Thailand. There's a good chance he's only been a monk a short time and is just a young man into lifting.

Re: Upcoming book by Karl Brunnhölzl on The Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra

Since English is such a 'borrowing' language, (alpha from the Greek sure fits,) then why not incorporate more Buddhist Sanskrit terms if the translator cannot abide prosaic English versions? Certainly it is the case that a number of terms in Dzogchen can be in Sanskrit, such as dharmata for example...
