Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

Well....maybe Yeye should renounce Osun, if Osun still wants bloodthirsty ritual sacrifice. ... And just stick with Buddha.....who was against ritual sacrifice. .... I agree although we don't have conclusive evidence that she's doing sacrificial offerings ( ebos ). And since she is not claiming the...

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

And she just happens to be the Goddess of water...... I think I need to point out that in this context, the waters; the Kalunga is both a metaphor for death and the fluid immanence of death itself. At times the ocean is still yet soothing while at other times it is raging and violent. Edit: I quote...

Re: Bodhicaryavatara Discussion

I'm not sure if this has been done before, or if folks are interested but I thought it might be useful to start an ongoing thread for discussion different aspects of the Bodhicaryavatara, both from the perspective of practice and interpretation of the stanzas etc. This is the first teaching I ever ...

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

At first I thought maybe it's a good thing because she could introduce Vajrayana Buddhism to African Americans, but it looks to me like this is such a misrepresentation, it will do more harm than good. I kindly want to know why you think it can be a good thing? Exposure to Dharma is a good thing, e...

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

She sounds very sincere. Beautiful voice. Sounds like she is authentic to me. Based on a very large sample of untrustworthy characters, I personally find that how convincing someone sounds is an extremely unreliable criteria on which to judge them - I find actions and demonstrable facts more reliab...

Re: Nechung Kuten Recognizes Yeye Omileye

Predicted response: Sherab will argue that precedence is not sufficiently reasonable. Tsongkhapa fan will bring up the fact that Tsongkhapa seems to have used two mediums in his career: a Nyingmapa Lama through whom he had a conversation with Vajrapani to remove his doubts about Dzogchen teachings;...

Re: Great Transference question

Is there an explanation of what is great transference? Afaik is not the same as rainbow-light-body, so it is pointed in a ChNN book because says that an individual that manifests great transferes does not manifest death and an individual that manifests rainbow-light-body does. Anyone knows? The Ati...

So, after some thinking and contemplating, I decided to get cracking at increasing my merit.

Re: Why does Gelug school claim emptiness means things exist without self nature?

Why do you think that when Gampopa went to Milarepa to boast about his samatha ability, Milarepa told him that his tummo is miles better than that? The discussion is not about shamatha so this is not relevant. The great Dzogchen master has confirmed that treckchod is shamatha combined with the view...

Re: Why does Gelug school claim emptiness means things exist without self nature?

I see you changed the "with" to "without," which is good, and anything with guru yoga is by definition not "just a sutric practice." With regard to the rest of your opinion, it may indeed be better FOR YOU to practice a more elaborate guru yoga with detailed self empowerment, only you and your teac...

Re: Why does Gelug school claim emptiness means things exist without self nature?

There really is no difference between perfection of wisdom, mahāmudra, Chan/Zen, etc., and tregchöd. I have heard it said that Tulku Orgyen asserted that trekchöd exists in all yānas, perhaps EPK would be kind enough to confirm this. What separates from trekchöd from these other systems of the meth...
