Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

As you can see here (2014 report): https://freedomhouse.org/report/freedom-press-2014/press-freedom-rankings There's three categories: Free, Partly Free, and Not Free. USA while having a score of 30 certainly is not "awesome" ( unlike Norway, Netherlands, and Finland with 1 as score ), it's certainl...

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

There is nothing wrong with ignorance, but it is easily remedied. One of the few positive things about this age of corruption is that knowledge on pretty much any topic is more easily accessible than it has ever been in the history of humanity Yes. It means you sit down and do your homework. You ca...

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

Malcolm, I've seen a number stories in Norwegian media lately of people who are fishing, and upon gutting the fish, they notice that the entire stomach is filled with plastic. In one large cod, a plastic bottle was stuck in its stomach. It's horrible. And it shows that the plastic just moves around ...

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

You feel it is an immaturity. What do you mean by that immaturity, and which countries do you feel are mature? Human culture is in it's adolescence, metaphorically speaking. Almost all societies now are very immature. Any culture that allows firearms to the public, doesn't have good education for k...

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

I want there to be Buddhist teachers and communities out there that reflect the cultures and people they connect to, but without corrupting or distorting the Dharma. Many Buddhists think Tibetan Buddhism is corrupt & distorted.... That's because those Buddhists you're referring to are clueless and ...

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

I wonder if there's the possibility of a misunderstanding or miscommunication having taken place here. That the Nechung Kuten never said that she is an oracle of Mamaki. Or that this was poorly communicated. Or that this woman is deliberately marketing herself as such, when she never really was sai...

Just to echo an older discussion on the topic of oracles, JKhedrup, who spent some time at Sera Je: I just checked with Geshe Sonam now to confirm what I have relayed here is accurate. He said every lama he has heard teach on this topic has stated that fully enlightened Buddhas cannot manifest throu...

Re: Dorje Losang

Thank you. It all looked a bit sketchy, but as you say the book “does contain some actual Buddhist concepts.” If you look hard enough and use your imagination, you'll find "Buddhist concepts" in the Twilight series as well as Fifty Shades of Grey too, but I wouldn't really read those books. That af...

Re: Merit = good karma ?

I guess Kongrul needs to get educated on the subject. The one who needs education is you, not Kongtrul. Kongtrul perfectly understands what karma is and is not, unlike yourself. If I remember correctly, you're currently residing at a monastery or center, yes? So here's what you should do: If that p...

Re: Great Transference question

There is no such restriction in terms of having received thogal teachings. DC students who have not received Longsal Thogal teachings are requested not to read the Longsal Thogal book, this does not extend to any books that include thogal material. That would be a serious limitation. Many students ...

Not in the way ChNN teaches no.
