Re: Empowerment question Krodha Kali / Dudjom Tersar

The Nyingma view is that if you receive a Shitro empowerments, then all you really need for any deity is the lung and khrid. I never heard anyone, except you, say this. Do you have a source for this? /magnus Well, Ayang Rinpoche mentioned this in a retreat. Bakha Tulku reaffirmed it when he gave us...

Re: Very sad news: Letter to Sogyal Rinpoche / Abuse allegations

I find this relevant: http://levekunst.com/club-nondualite/ There is no need to become someone else’s property and loosing personal freedom just because of wanting to be free. There is no need to limit empathy in order to give room to boundless compassion. There is no need to shut off the intelligen...

Re: Very sad news: Letter to Sogyal Rinpoche / Abuse allegations

I will note the DKR calls attention to the "poor preparation" of students by the Rigpa organization, and I think that's right. No to mention his attention to the training of the teacher. What if I’d raised the question: “Apart from what Sogyal Rinpoche himself tells you, what proof do you...

Re: Guru Yoga thought experiment

I think this passage from Mingyur Rinpoche's recent statement is worth keeping in mind: Many people misunderstand samaya and think it refers only to seeing the teacher as a buddha, a fully awakened being. That is part of samaya, but it misses the key point. Samaya is about seeing everyone and every...

Re: Lama Norlha

A quarter of a century ago my Guru told me that there are three kinds of tulku. Tulku that is just a name, tulku that is a some kind of connection and a real tulku. It is a shame this isn't common knowledge. So let's make it common knowledge. As far as I know it is in common circulation. We have th...

Yes, the empowerments and teachings was a Friday to Sunday thing, I was one week in Sydney all together. DJKR was pretty amazing in person.

Re: Lama Norlha

As I mentioned a while back, I'm told the word "tulku" is the literal Tibetan translation for the Sanskrit "nirmanakaya". In the context of the doctrine of the 3 bodies of the Buddha, it means an incarnate physical person who is a Buddha. If it's not that, what does it mean? A q...

IF Lama Norlha did carry out any of the activities he is accused of then it makes no difference how much we jump up and down and scream, karma will get his ass, ain't no avoiding Yama (except through enlightenment). If he did not then the only thing most of us here will have managed to do is to eng...
