Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

It might just be my perception, but I seem to detect a much different tone about Sogyal Rinpoche than you had when this had originally happened and in the trending threads at that time. (in which you seemed to be much more critical of him) Well, when there is smoke on a hill, there is generally fir...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

Speaking of Norbu Rinpoche, Malcolm, would you think if and when his successor starts giving transmission again, that would be a valid route to access his teachings? Or do you hold the view that it's only appropriate if received direct from Norbu Rinpoche himself? Asking just in case the IDC resume...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

The Yongdzin Rinpoche Lopon Tenzin Namdak. He emphasizes Tantric Ngondro more, but does not require Yidam or any other Tantric practice. Yongdzin Rinpoche gives general Direct Introduction and Guruyoga to anyone interested; however from what I understand, he usually won’t give the R.T.W. unless one...

Re: Is Tara Buddhist Deity

Can anyone tell the sourceof the origin of Tara? I have done my homework and as long as I can tell Tara is Hindu goddess adopted to Buddhism. There are many Hindu goddess adopted to Buddhism not just Tara. I am not sure why, maybe it's believed the practice or the deity has similar quality to Buddh...

I don't know either her origins and also the practice of Tara, seems questionable to me, is this Buddhist practice? There are many stories going around.
I am sorry, what stories?

It's unclear what is referred to as "Hindu" here. Shivaite tantrism maybe?
Hinduism is not really a religion, it is a whole bunch of religions and spiritual paths.

Hi all,

Is Tara Buddhist or Hindu deity? I read somewhere Buddhist adopted some Hindu deities into the practice. But how far is this truth?
It is both. No one knows if it first was Hindu or Buddhist. What is sure is that Tara have a very long history as a Buddhist deity.

Also, if possible with a tsog section? I'm requesting this on behalf of my ...

Re: Requesting Teachings

ChNN did teach non-Longsal Longde as well right? Or is that incorrect? I was thinking that if I had a longde empowerment I could learn from the shang shung material that is not Longsal. I have a Longde book that I have only read the introduction of (I didn't realize it was a separate lung to practi...

Re: Requesting Teachings

FWIW I am not interested in requesting anything on a whim, or from any teacher, nor am I interested in collecting empowerments. Rather I have received instruction from only two lamas, who I respect a great deal and practice what they teach. I was unable to receive certain teachings from my root lam...

Re: Requesting Teachings

i should have probably been more precise and said: "on your whim from any teacher". quite a lot of western buddhists develop some kind of a collector approach on regards of teachings/empowerments, thinking they know better if they should practice this or that. FWIW I am not interested in requesting...

Re: Requesting Teachings

anyone please give an example why do you need to request a teaching? i mean if you have root guru then it is up to him to decide how you progress on the path so you don't need to worry as he will provide you with all necessary wangs/lungs/teaching, unless he tells you specifically to go and request...
