Re: gaze/open eyes/closed eyes

Open eyes, looking up accelerates thoughts arising. Open eyes looking down slows down thoughts arising. Depending on the practice you may want to cause these conditions. Somewhat closed eyes (3/4) I was told by various Nyingma teachers is best for contemplation, as closed makes you lose an important...

Re: Should we be generous to the ungrateful?

Generosity is not meant to be about you feeling good. It is meant to be about benefiting others. If you feel remorse about giving, then there is benefit for you from the action, but rather than stop giving it is better to figure out why you feel remorse. It is better to analyse why you feel people ...

Re: Should we be generous to the ungrateful?

If I dare be so bold, there is a way to evaluate with clarity 1. your resources and capacity, 2. the other's capacity, and 3. understand all generosity comes from your own motivation. What I'm getting at is that it seems to be a question of skillfulness not generosity in itself. I'm sure there's a k...

Re: Reasonable things to tattoo

Por Siempre Tattoos in Ensenada is the best tattoo parlor I've found this side of the border. You can see their page on FB. They are talented artists with superb attention to hygiene and they're real pro's. It's the real deal. These guys, right? https://www.facebook.com/porsiempretatuajes/ Yes.

Re: Dzogchen materials not requiring DI?

A Dharma brother talked to me prior to the WWT, and then offered to be with me and stayed on the phone with me during my first webcast which was an immense help actually.

If you could benefit from that... I'm more than happy to pay it forward.

PM me if that might be of interest.

Re: How do you know you're not just making karma worse??

Karma is a difficult one to figure out. For example: My brother died earlier this year and left a heap of debts that my family and I have to pay for. This lead me to wondering: How can I know if this is due to old debts which were accrued by me towards him that I now have to pay for, OR are these n...

Ogyen, you haven't responded to a question on the first page: which vehicle does your post refer to? The only thing I can offer is the dzogchen view.

It's definitely over for your delusion. Ignorance may continue for a few bhumis.
