Re: Is it good not to exist?

The essence of mind itself is beyond what is to be realized and the act of realization. The hair of the tortoise covered the lotus of the sky. The sound of...

Re: Rabbit's Horns

From Kenchen Thrangu Rinpoche: In Buddhist scriptures, the analogy of horns of a rabbit are presented to describe our illusory mode of perceiving the world and being within. If rabbits have no horns, investigating how long a rabbit can have horns is rather foolish. Understanding that ultimately noth...

Re: Phowa with psychological disorder

My opinion is that you should definately talk about your difficulties with your lama first and if you know of anyone familiar with Buddhism who is also a health professional, maybe speak to them too for another opinion. You could also investigate if your lama and his students are doing any any group...

In education children learn to see thoughts as very important and habitually learn to identify with them. That's not always a bad thing, because they might need to think rationally about something - such as not talking to a strange man on the way home from school, who pops out from behind a bush an...
