Re: Neo nazi's march in DC

Greg, do you really believe that most of those marchers would want to kill millions of people? Maybe I am just being naive, but to me, they are largely disgruntled and ignorant people, not psychopaths.. Not Greg here, but from my perspective here on the ground in lower Delaware, USA is that yes, th...

Rigdzin Shikpo/ Michael Hookam in the U.K. teaches MM and dzogchen as well, though I believe it’s Khenpo Tsultrim who empowered him to do so, not CTR (his original teacher)

Eliot Pattison's Inspector Shan series of murder mysteries is set in Tibet and is really well done. Very enjoyable if you like the genre. http://www.eliotpattison.com/inspector.html

Re: Sh#t is f@cked up and bull sh*t

Interesting article, thanks for posting. I couldn't find a date on it, it seems to have been written pre-2016 election? Several disparate comments: 1) The instances of small town/small business rejuvenations are encouraging. These projects can provide the impetus for growth, but I'm not sure that th...

Re: What is the best way to deal with an overly inquisitive/suffocating friend?

You can try the friendly, joking approach -"Is this a test?!"

Or the flip-it-back approach - "Why do you ask?"

Or if it's really bothering you, just say so. "I prefer not to answer, " or, "I feel uncomfortable when you ask so many questions, it's invasive. Please stop."

Great article. Possibly the most succinct, unbiased summary of the origins of our current shitstorm I've read. Will be passing this one along. Hindsight is of course 20/20. I'd love to read an article as cogently written on what options we have for the future. Recommendations? "Prudence, indeed, wil...

Re: INDIAN VEGETARIANS ? :)

Also, Jains have very strict dietary restrictions and avoid the five pungents (onions, garlic, leeks, chives, green onions; some Buddhists do this as well). Interesting article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jain_vegetarianism

It occurs to me that “An Olive Branch” would most likely not have a license to practice law in Canada. Or France, where they have been mentioned in regards to the Rigpa situation also.

Re: Deathbed visions

Without being a specialist in neuropharmacology, I can only speculate that perhaps the varied chemicals produced during the dying process could stimulate different areas of the brain, producing particular types of hallucinations.

Re: Deathbed visions

From a strictly physiological, Western medicine point of view, the "normal" process of death includes increasing hypoxia with decreasing levels of oxygen in the body and increasing levels of carbon dioxide. Hallucinations are a well known and documented effect of hypoxia. Other chemical levels are i...
