Re: Vajrayana purification split from "Second hand mandala offering set"

Just as your dog can smell things on you that you easily can hide from humans people with finely tuned spiritual sensitivity can sense broken samaya and any bad actions you lack remorse for. If you done these kind actions and haven't done any purification you will affect other people as well as obje...

Re: Vajrayana purification split from "Second hand mandala offering set"

Stuff like this put me off of Vajrayana for a long time. I mean, I had no interest in becoming a Medieval Tibetan and still have no interest. I suppose it is fine for those who want it, but for those who don't, the Vajrayana tent is a big one. There are very old school lamas with jokes that are at ...

Re: Practices for recognition at the end of Guru Yoga book

They are similar to pointing out instructions I've seen and gotten from other teachers using shamatha object, etc. It's just weird because generally introduction would (well, would have, makes me sad thinking about it) come from Rinpoche, and these seem to be a practice. So maybe you are might and ...

Re: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche live-stream now

Is this the same single Vajrakilaya empowerment that Garchen Rinpoche gives?

Re: Calling the Lama From Afar

Is there a place where one can purchase the Drikung version of Calling the Guru from Afar? Thank you. In both places I have mentioned above. But it is the same prayer in all traditions as it is made by rime master. Not really, there are many prayers called "Calling the Guru from Afar". /magnus

Re: Troma nagmo and rainbow body

So it is said that thirteen of the initial practitioners of the Dudjom troma nagmo sadhana attained rainbow body. And more attained it in the subsequent generation. What makes this mantra/sadhana/deity so special that it can lead to that, as opposed to all other mantras? Can Vajrakila do the same f...

Re: Ngondzog Gyalpo purpose?

I never think it was the ChNNR's idea that all deities have particular secondary aim such as longevity, compassion and so on. It is obvious that the main purpose of all deities is enlightenment but that in the DC we practice deities for the secondary benefits since the main practice is Dzogchen. Als...

I agree Samsara is a Prison we are bound to which we need to find the exit door.

I wish you all the best with life/practice and so on.

Thank-you for the debate!!!
It is important to understand you can't fix Samsara, it is unfixable. Quoting Dzongsar Khyentse here.

Re: Suffering

The problem is Samsara, the main quality of Samsara is Dukkha. Also Karma. There is no reason as such for any of it. So we have Dukkha now because of Negative Karma from the past. The Karma is owned by the individual which causes Attachment via Dependent Origination. To provide real meaning we seek...

Re: Suffering

'Du-kkha' literally translates as 'Hard-to Bear' or 'Difficult-to Bear'. I find this extremely interesting. Is a search for enlightenment, then, an aim to make life not so hard to bear? Is it to bear life in spite of its hardness? Is it both? Is it, in a sense, neither? :thinking: The problem is Sa...

OK, heart, thanks. Do any of these masters do online empowerments? I'm a bit limited in terms of resources for travel. Perhaps I could ask.
So far I haven't heard that online empowerment's happened with these masters.
