Re: Tulpas

we "Nyingmapas" understand full well that termas and Dzogchen can only be said to belong to those from whom their transmission originally flowed and those who've received their transmission.. but certainly not to some school. schools can be distinguished by for instance the object of guru yoga in s...

Re: Contemporary tertons of Eastern Tibet

Re: Contemporary tertons of Eastern Tibet

According to the Madhyamika, it is possible to achieve liberation without buddhism. Pratyekabuddhas actually manage it in a kalpa where no buddha has been born. They are not full buddhas, though, as they do have relatively limited compassion and are not omniscient. not completely accurate http://ww...

Re: Rainbow body

What happens to the rainbow body if it is not actively maintained? Is it something that can be lost? when you wake up, your body of results, your fabricated physicality, remains and continues until the breakdown of its constituent parts. when via method the body of results reverts to the five color...
