Re: "You need to know Tibetan to achieve enlightenment in this life"

I certainly don't feel like I do, but are we not in better starting positions than Mila was? I think that Milarepa had a greater sense of desperation and urgency than we do, since he committed serious crimes in his current life, so the fact that he would have to do something or else face the conseq...

Hope for realization in retreat and fear of non realization while practicing amongst the people is not the main point. Enjoying the practice without any expectations with a mind of c...

We should have a thread about strategies for keeping practice in while struggling along in the West.
Based on the quote above, what strategies are there, what are you using, which can you recommend?
Keep the Guru on the crown, enjoy the practice without any expectations.

Re: Troma Nagmo

Afaik there is only the white and red feast in Jigten Sumgons chod and the dakini is Varahi. Jigten Sumgons Chod contains only a white/multicolored feast - the red feast in the ususal Drikung-Chod is (more or less) from the 3rd Karmapa's Chod (Tsogle Threngwa) Yeah I always forget to mention that b...

That’s not the same as the Ganden transmission, which is a part of an entirely different lineage. Nor is it a Troma empowe...
