Re: Cost of retreats USA vs. EUR

Re: Cost of retreats USA vs. EUR

Well, from what I hear from many Buddhists , this vajrayana has developed a bad reputation,for being for wealthy people, being very into making money. Are lots of these expensive things necessary.

Re: Direct introduction. What is it?

when you make remarks about the differences betweeen zen and dzogchen , you should know that the well known Vairotsana received zen lineages and that later on , i believe it was rongzom who also recived zen lineages.
