Re: POTUS 2020 poll #1

While we're on the topic of psephology, this is a novel and quite interesting way to measure popularity, and it's not looking good for trump: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/trump-may-be-even-more-unpopular-than-his-approval-rating-shows/ "...we ask respondents how favorably they feel toward T...

Re: Eminem darkness

He has made a career off of being provocative, so, I don't really know what's so surprising. As it's all been done before, artists are trying new ways to still be edgy. When I was younger it was a big deal just for a man to wear makeup, these kind of things are changing. In this video, which is als...

Re: POTUS 2020 poll #1

He may well get the nomination. That does not mean he has any appeal outside the coastal states. Well, that is the kind of the thing that the mainstream media will keep repeating, but the truth is Bernie is doing much better in the poles now. He may well get the nomination, but that doesn't mean he...

Re: POTUS 2020 poll #1

All of the Dems are too left to get elected except Biden, and he's too old and voted for the Iraq war.

Re: Tara's divination from Atisha ?

I made my investigation on TBRC looking in some Mo volume founding one from Atisha relating to Tara, but using mala, nothing about Mo stones. Any student of Lama Zopa Rinpoche can tell if this Mo transmission explained in this book is authentic or invention from author ? I really don't know, but th...

Re: The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra A Translation of the Rigpa Rang Shar and Rigpa Rang

There are many other qualified teachers out there as well. But choose wisely Malcolm, on that point. There are many lamas who teach Dzogchen within the common Nyingma framework of common and uncommon preliminaries, three roots, etc. Since ChNNR rested his intent, is there anyone teaching it like hi...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I would be very surprised to learn that Tara Mandala did not have some sort of work-study or sponsor arrangement. YOu should contact them. They might also be able to help you with the shrine preparations. For mother tantra the stack-up on the shrine is usually a bit more elaborate than just the sin...

Re: How to Solve Arbitrariness?

So I've noticed that sometimes, I feel depressed or not content with the dharma and begin acknowledging other paths, particularly Christianity (based on my own interpretations), sometimes going as far as leaving to worship whatever. Then, at other times, I then come back and confess and all that st...

Re: Vajrayana and emotion in daily life

What I understand to be the essence of Vajrayana is the principle of transformation, and transforming the five poisons into the five wisdoms. To this end I often hear statements that we shouldn't block emotion, powerful emotion is a powerful tool etc. However, despite having had many Vajrayana empo...
