Re: Passing of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche

Too bad it is such a rainy day. Khenpo Khartar Rinpoche was a great master of the Kagyu.

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...

Re: Is idiot compassion a thing?

This is a topic of ongoing debate be me and a friend. The specific case keeps coming up of a beggar asking for ten dollars. The beggar is a known, active drug user and is known to have begged money for other purposes, such as food or overnight shelter, then spent it on drugs. My friend says it's no...

Re: Vajrasattva in the Gelug tradition

For "visualization of ourselves as Vajrasattva" Geluks definitely do that- just look at the long six session. As an aside: Gehlek Rimpoche's six-session yoga commentary specifies that, even though it says "Vajrasattva," the actual visualization here is supposed to be of ourselves as a white-coloure...
