Re: Mani + car tire?

I don't think it be good to write the mani mantra on the wheel. Cause it's like writing a mantra on our shoes(car's shoes in this case). I recall reading an article stating that there are shoes being sold with pictures of Deities and Buddhas and mantras on it and wearing it is creating bad karma. Ba...

Re: What happens when all sentient beings attain Buddhahood?

I actually had a chance to ask this question to Khensur Gyurmed Lobsang Jampa Rinpoche when he was visiting my country. He said "That's very good!" And laughed together with the audience. It was a turning point for me, with that answer. I was too focused on the material implications(blame it on my m...

On destroying Virtue VS Unable to exhaust others' Karma

Hi Folks, Wishing you folks could help me understand a misunderstand i might have. Statement 1: It is said that one cannot destroy karma(action, or rather the result of the action here). One can only exhaust it by it ripening fully(or lesser via purification) upon us(the being holding the karma) Sta...

Can a Buddha intervene with our karma?

Can a Buddha intervene with our karma? If yes, at what stage of the karma? when the karma is not ripe? -eg. created the karma to be harmed but I'm still unharmed because it hasn't ripened. when the karma is ripening? -eg. I'm going to be harmed in a few moment due to the karma ripening. if yes, how?

Re: Regarding lama as enlightened being and devotion

Thanks do the replies.

What if a lama asks me to practice a mantra for lifetime? Does that establish a guru disciple relationship automatically?

Regarding lama as enlightened being and devotion

I have joined a dharma center(FPMT) for about a year now. However, i haven't had the fortunate karma to meet the Lama Zopa Rinpoche(the spiritual director/Guru) yet. I have read books written by Rinpoche. I have seen rinpoche's activities (through news, through videos). From my perception I have no ...

Re: rGyal tshab rJe Dar ma rin chen - UTTARATANTRA

It looks good. But it is not the commentary composed by Gyaltsabje, but rather a modern commentary by Dzongsar Rinpoche. I think the person is looking specifically for the ancient commentary by Gyaltsab, Tzongkhapa's disciple. And, if I am not mistaken I think they are looking for the Tibetan. i se...
