Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

What? Yes, it's incredibly weird and nonsensical that Shambhala makes their students vow not to have any other teachers. This is a strategy of containment and damage control. Do you think that strategy was specifically meant to contain sex scandals/abuse allegations, or just damage control as a who...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

These Sanskrit words have almost always been translated as "Hail to the Jewel in the Lotus," or something similar. However, we believe that, in origin, the...

Podcast - Love Letters from Golok: A Tantric Couple in Modern Tibet

Often when people think of Tibetan Buddhism they have a limited vision of that social reality, perhaps one that imagines monks sitting in meditation or focused on the Dalai Lama. Rarely is the historical role of female Buddhist masters central to one’s understanding of contemporary Tibetan life. In ...

If you follow Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, there's always Alendar: http://alendar.org/

It also has haircutting days as well as a large amount of other astrological advice.
It's a nice app. Hope they add Naga and Sang offering days.
