Re: I don't want parinirvana,should I follow a different path?

Anyway it does not matter; vajrayana is for at most 16 lives. For me 64 bc I suck. Sakya Pandita says: If one who possesses the three vows understands the profound points of the two stages, it is said that in this life, the bardo or within sixteen lifetimes, that one will accomplish perfect buddhah...

Re: Dagpo Kagyu empowerments

Sakya Pandita asserts that Marpa did not receive Vajrayogini from Naropa, but I don't he think he doubts that he pretty much received everything else. I thought (and I can be completely wrong :) ) it was accepted that Marpa received Yogini but it was from the long lineage. I can’t remember the Marp...

Re: Sakya view about Dorje Legpa

I have also never read an opinion about it. For context, in Sakya Mahakala is an oath bound protector, he is also regarded as beyond samsara. The name “oath bound” is not a reliable indicator of the status of a given dharmapala—they are all oath bound. Is Panjaranata Mahakala the main dharmapala of...

Re: Why choose Mahayana over Vajrayana?

To be honest, I actually think no Zen practitioner really cares much if Zen is called sutric or not, or how other traditions categorize its approach. Why should they? Zen is clear as to its own relationship with the sutras as well as its method. For example: If you study the sutra teachings, you ea...

Poker and futures.

in the middle is samantabhadra and samantabhadri, and in front is vajra family. the rest you can deduce. I've just remembered and checked that in description of the refuge tree, the east branch is also in the front, so it corresponds, thanks. But where would Vairocana be then? if you are applying M...

Re: Shitro practice and Five Dhjani Buddhas

if you are applying Mingyur Dorje's shitro according to ChNN's transmission then in clock-wise sense: in front vajra, then buddha, ratna, padma, karma, to find vajra again. if one have capacity and can use colors is good, but name is a minucia. otherwise i don't know.
