Re: If you could only have one Dharma object.

The OP mentions a Stupa. Seems like that would be the end-all right? And it would probably attract other practitioners, and that is a big plus in my book. Well I guess that depends. By object, I assumed a small stupa you can carry around. At what size does a stupa go from being an "object" to a "st...

Re: Renouncing Theravada

What is a good introduction to Sutra Mahamudra? The Sakyapas will tell you. They're really into sutra mahamudra. They love it. :tongue: But if you change your mind and want to learn about Ganges mahamudra instead: http://www.pointingoutway.org/downloads/tilopa.pdf :tongue: Or here is the bigger pic...

Prayer for Travel

I am going to be traveling over several states in the USA for work. I have done this more than once, but I have an odd feeling of apprehension about it now. I hope everything will go well and that we will arrive safely.

Re: Parrot Mouth

Thanks a lot, all. Things settled well that day. It is nice to know that a misstep won't always derail my state of mind. And it is nice to be aware of a great place like this that I can go to for such great advice and prayers.

Parrot Mouth

I said something last night that should not have been said. I was upset and performed some evil in speech. I use that term deliberately.

Please pray for me.

I attended this teaching.

I was wondering where I could get a digital copy of the refuge prayers recited during the webcast. Did anybody else see this webcast? Can I get a copy of the prayers please?
