Re: Upcoming translations of Bon texts

Just wanted to point out that "Self-Arising Three-fold Embodiment of Enlightenment" is now available on Amazon. Strangely enough, the prices for the book vary extensively among different countries (e.g. in the UK the cheapest version on Amazon seems to be 75 £, whereas on Amazon.com it's 37 USD), n...

Re: Bon Dzogchen

Yes, but it gets weird because hagiographies don't operate on the same logic as modern ideas of historicity. That's the thing, if you try to evaluate them like that, there will always be deep tension. They don't have to make conceptual sense, we are not owed that. If we base our faith on those thin...

Re: Homage to the Lord Tönpa Shenrap Miwo

why do you start after "ram soha"? why do you stop after " shuddho"? why not posting the whole mantra? བསྭོ་མུ་ཡེ་སྤྲོས་ཁྱུང་ཡེ་ལམ་ཏྲི་ཁྲི་ཏར་དར། གསལ་འབར་འོད་དཔག་རམ་སྭཧཱ། བསྭོ་དམུ་ར་ཏ་ཧན་ཝེར་ནི་བྲུཾ་ཧྲུན། མུ་ཏྲེ་མུ་ཏྲེ་དམུ་ར་མུ་ཏྲེ། མུ་ཡེ་མུ་ཡེ་ཧ་ར་མུ་ཡེ། མུ་སྤྲོས་མུ་སྤྲོས་ཝེར་རོ་མུ་སྤྲོས། མུ་ནི་གྱེ...

Re: Bon Dzogchen

Perhaps the point is that Dzogchen as a living dynamic process has never needed any kind of back story at all, including not needing a creation myth. What is essential is authentic transmission in the present. right.... but "they all" claim that it is crucial to have an authentic past (lineage, myt...

Re: Tibetan mountain protector

maybe: 'dzin.... not wjin.

Re: Bon Dzogchen

There are quite obviously competing hagiographical narratives about the origins of Dzogchen in Bon and Vajrayana, and people in both camps of course would like to claim exclusivity. The fact is though, both have living Dzogchen traditions and have living masters who (luckily for us), expound the te...
