Re: Dating

I don't understand why your girlfriend would want to deceive her teacher and others at the temple, or leave her 15 yr old son there while she's with you.

I would therefore suggest that you have some calm, sensible discussions about the situation with both your girlfriend and your teacher.

Problem is she feels a little concern about our Master seeing right through her, like we are doing something wrong. Especially when she drops her son off for a weekend of instruction from master, and we spend time together.
Can I ask the age of your girlfriend's son, please ?

Re: Book for beginners

The Practice of Tranquility and Insight - Khenchen Thrangu ...but you may need to read it slowly, a little bit at a a time, and perhaps more than once. I'd recommend the same book too. You can also find "A Guide to Shamatha Meditation" on Thrangu Rinpoche's website. http://www.rinpoche.com/shamatha...

Really. This stuff is important. Let’s throw our wooly-headedness down, all at once if we can but in stages is fine too. That’s all.

Re: Latest report on Shambala abuse just released.

I think it's also fair to ask: where was PC in all of this before these allegations being made about her? She hasn't made any public statement on the matter that I can find, but she really should. She's a public figure; she publishes a lot of self-help books ("When things fall apart", for instance)...

Re: How do you know you're not just making karma worse??

Karma is a difficult one to figure out. For example: My brother died earlier this year and left a heap of debts that my family and I have to pay for. This lead me to wondering: How can I know if this is due to old debts which were accrued by me towards him that I now have to pay for, OR are these n...

Re: Donating one's organs at death

Well, how much time is it effective? The cause for incurable disease is there for quite a long time. They just delay their expiating suffering. Think what happens to the transplant recipient after death... That kind of despair for life. I saw some blood transfusion patients, and they are not happy....
