Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

My point being, if you (we, me) are not willing to risk everything on the Vajrayana path, maybe you/we/me should not follow this path. As I’ve said elsewhere, maybe Vajrayana should not be taught to Westerners. Just a thought. Since you've said a number of times now that you don't practice Vajrayan...

Re: Intense Guru Dragphur?

How intense is this practice? I found a group of ChNN'S followers in Texas that are able to transmit the practice, but before I make a decision of taking up this practice, how intense is it? Would this be a wise practice to take up for a 15 year old busy with school work and studies? Is there a dai...

They also had public condemnation of their actions from lineage masters. There is a telling passage in Compassionate Action that is pretty clearly an example of this.

No, what is the difference if I may ask? /magnus CT and his successors had public support endorsements from the heads of Kagyu and Nyingma. Moreover, they abused alcohol. They couldn't even keep the precepts... what about the vows and samayas? The lama linked above just had some affairs with some s...

Re: "You need to know Tibetan to achieve enlightenment in this life"

Did Shakyamuni Buddha speak Tibetan? No, but this question is asked in the context of Buddhadharma as taught in the Indo-Tibetan traditions. That means Sanskrit and Tibetan, because those are the primary languages in which these teachings are taught in. Primarily Tibetan, considering the state of S...

Re: Dzogchen materials not requiring DI?

I see potential benefit in integrating Dzogchen with my existing practices. Assuming ChNN goes ahead with his next Worldwide Transmission -- which I've been told takes place on July 21, 2018, from 8 pm to 9 pm PT -- there's a good chance I'll be around to receive it.

Going into solitary retreat is the better option for single Dzogchen practitioners, if they have the means to do so, and are capable of doing so.

Yes, broken down it is:

foot - played with the feet
ball - a round object

As opposed to American "football":

hand - played with the hands
egg - an ovoid object
Correct.

Of course. It happens with monastics too, worse.
You did the math?
Screw the math. Molesting young boys is worse than consenting adult women.
We are not talking about consenting adults in this thread. We are talking about sexual abuse. That's a big difference.
