You think being at mass events will teach you what you need to know? Do they live here? Did they even learn proper English? I can see this is getting people very defensive. That is good. This glide path is very obvious and should be talked about.

Re: Amoghasiddhi Mantra?

I am aware of that website. However, could you guide me to a dharani or sutra? I'm afraid I don't quite have full trust over the website. Amoghasiddhi is vajrayana so you’d need an empowerment. Oh. well that's a pity. Like how Amitabha's Mahayana mantra is "Namo Amitabha", can the same be done with...

Re: Scanning Library Books

I'm talking about all books, not just Dharma books. you shouldn't share something that's not yours, unless it is entrusted to you or the owner gave you a discrete permission to share, a specific permission to share, or an open permission to share, etc. I'm talking of the contents of books, texts, e...

Does anyone know if we can still purify our samaya with Rinpoche while he is in this samadhi state?
Yes.
How do we know whether our samaya is pure with Rinpoche or not?

Re: Disassembling Dharma Books

Is there anything wrong with disassembling dharma books to scan them? Thank you. It is like killing sentient beings, if you can restore them whole and perfect, no problem. But if you can't.... What about non-dharma books? I already disassembled one dharma book... so everything is fine if I restore ...
