Re: Situation of Kalu Rinpoche

... if he has renounced the whole thing and gone against his lineage for whatever reasons justified or not, why would he want to give teachings anyway? And if he is giving teachings, does he teach Vajrayana, or personal stuff unrelated to lineage? In the Vajrayana system he is the lineage. He teach...

So lets be clear.
A claim is being made that convincing allegations of sexual predation are obviated if we cite the appearance of a common meteorological phenomenon?

Re: What's the difference between Guru Yoga and Yidam practice, and how do they relate to the Four Noble Truths?

I am working on completing the Dudjom Tersar Ngöndro, and also doing a Yidam practice which I received permission for. I am not sure what the difference between these practices are.

Re: Preparing for death

I have also heard that completing ngöndro or doing 8 consecutive nyungne's closes the door to rebirth in lower realms. I don't have a textual source to back that up however. Also reciting 1 million (or 5 million?) Guru Rinpoche mantras assures rebirth in his pure land. I mean there's a lot of optio...

Re: Dash Avatara

Hi Riju! Your devotion to the Louts Sutra and your compassion for beings is very admirable! Of course all the teachings of the Buddha have the single purpose of leading us from common, impure beings to become pure, enlightened beings.

See if this helps. Don't worry about AP Chemistry too much. Just tackle it one main idea and problem set that goes with that idea at a time. The test is not until the end of the second semester.
