Re: Shingon?

It's lower tantra. Kevin More details needed lol Intersectarian tantra-bashing is my favourite kind! Oh no, there are divisions between higher and lower tantra. Tibetan Buddhism also contains lower tantra, have no doubt. However, from what I recall, Shingon does not go past this. Kevin

ok, so I ordered the book because Rinpoche recommends it...however, can anyone clue me in to the reason why he wants everyone to read it? Apparently there is a story going around that this version of events corrects?
I would also like to know.

Re: Enlightened and mundane Dakinis

I've been reading a bit about Dakas/Dakinis, and I was hoping someone could give me some clarity on the subject. Are enlightened dakinis still considered to be witches like mundane dakinis are, albeit, enlightened witches? Is the state of being a Daka/Dakini a state of realization, an occupation (e...

Re: Arachnoid cyst

Is there anything useful in TM for arachnoid cysts? I was near dead-line a year and a half ago because of it but had an operation (the occipital bone was removed (c) and the main cysts were pierced (they were in the 4-th ventricles of the brain). I think it is important for you to have a consultati...

Re: Main students of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

No breach of ToS. That isn't what I meant. Discussing the internal politics of the DC is not something ChNN is likely to approve of. Such internal politics are pretty sensitive at this time, as those in Singapore know, and such a discussion could turn in a way which could indeed spawn harm. So no, ...

If you are in the DC you should already have some idea or know who to ask.
It is not a question for here, I suggest.
I think it's a suitable question. There is no harm from it.

Well, the term is so watered down now, it has become meaningless, just a way for people to feel trendy and "in" about what they're doing.
Somehow I doubt that Josef's intention is to be a 'trendy Dzogchen stockholder.'
