Re: Tsa Lung and Guru Yoga in the Bön tradition vs Tibetan Buddhism

It is true that Bön teachers - for the better or worse - are more open in their presentation of advanced material such as tsa lung, tummo or dzogchen. Whether this difference in approach is beneficial or not is hard to decide. Note however that HH the previous Menri Trizin was explicit about his wi...

Re: Dzogchen Community Naga Rite

If burning incense with animal products such as musk annoys the Nagas, how should we regard butter-lamps? Butter being an animal product, I wondered. Burning chemical laden tea lights is probably not too wonderful either. It is musk in particular, which nagas find toxic. Thinking of the current sit...

My Greek lama recommended I do some protector practices (torma, serkyem, etc) to pacify the Mamo.

I informed him that I am happy to do so, but shouldn't somebody tell everybody else to stop irritating the Mamo?
How are the mamos being irritated exactly?
pollution of their habitat, f.e.

Re: Which heavens correspond

This was news to me so I looked it up, and Simon is correct. Catholicism holds that one can be redeemed by Jesus' sacrifice if they are unaware of the Gospel. However if you happen not to be born in an uncontacted tribe deep in the Amazon, and have been exposed to Christianity through a typical wes...

Re: Which heavens correspond

Not so. This is the view of Evangelical Protestant Christianity. I have no brief for Catholicism, but the Catholic Church (fwiw) says that non Christians will be judged according to the lights of their own religion. This has been Rome’s teaching for almost 100 hundred years. Btw it’s “baptised”. Ma...

Re: 9 vs 5 prong

I do know of at least one very Kagyu sadhana where a 9-pronged vajra is one of the specific items on the shrine mandala, and in that case at least clearly has no connection with the 9 yanas. But the point stands: it is kind of specialised, so if you don't know why you need a 9-pronged vajra, you pr...

Romio seems to have no clue about iconography...

and his art is not much tibetan, no?
The OP indicates they are looking for a Tibetan esthetic, they didn't mention correct iconography. Hence, my recommendation. I think they're primarily looking for pretty pictures. :smile:

Guess it depends on what you consider super expensive... One oversize volume that is quite lovely is Celestial Gallery by Romio Shrestha. It comes in several sizes, the eBay link here is for the largest, 24"x16"; you may be able to find a cheaper copy searching online. The quality of the book itsel...
