The interesting thing about the flintstone's car is that there is nothing to prevent the rear roller from falling of the frame...kind of like Dzogchen without Buddhism...
Good observation.

Re: Greetings!

Hi folks! I'm very curious about Mahayana, specifically Zen at the moment. I've been to a local zendo a few times and I'm trying to learn more. Also, my metta practice has been aided by learning about other people and what's important to them, so I'll be lurking around here quite a bit, I imagine. ...

I love these videos of the Master.
The integration with the realities of our circumstances and the teachings is fully present always.
Thank you for posting this here Kevin.
Yes, the maestro is a master of integration.

Yes, you should try to ask Rinpoche more if you get a chance.

Re: Help me with a difficult family conversation.

We've raised our kids to not kill things, we put bugs outside rather than killing them etc. Sometimes we let them be. We aren't romantic about it, but the expectation is there. If there's a wasp's nest or something, this is different and sometimes one must do what one must. This is part of the reas...

Re: Help me with a difficult family conversation.

I am probably going to catch some heat for this but I would let him take them fishing. It sounds like they don't see Grandpa too much and it sounds like this will be a special occasion for him and for them. This doesn't sound like an occasion that is going to happen very often. If it were, I would b...

in regard to Sanskrit (not Tibetan), I have found a very useful Youtube channel Buddhist Practice in Sanskrit.

There is also a wonderful resource site with Sanskrit Buddhist chants at www.bodhisvara.com.
May you have a nice day.

Positive Health in Tibetan Medicine by Vaidya Bhagwan Dash and Doboom Tulku

I just picked up Positive Heath in Tibetan Medicine by Vaidya Bhagwan Dash and Ven. Doboom Tulku. It is a traslation of the Sman-'tsho-ba'i-mdo (Vaidya-Jiva-Sutra). I started it yesterday (although I haven't completed the Decameron yet due to too much schoolwork). Has anybody else read this? Opinion...

Re: Which consciousnesses exist in the bardo?

What I find striking is that there is no mention of any of the later schools as being, amongst them, various specifically Mahāyāna schools. No mention, as far as I have noticed as of yet. That's not a bad thing, per se. That's not ill-speech or anything of the like, but there isn't a widespread kno...

And I'd ignore the whole thing if it wasn't right outside my window. I don't really care what any of them does(as long as they"re not breaking the law), but keep it away from me is my stance.

Re: Which consciousnesses exist in the bardo?

This is because we are a gandharva (although my previous question in the previous post still stands, I am much more ignorant than I might try to appear, much much more) . I read about these in the Pāli Canon. In EBT studies, there is a somewhat wave-making article by the Venerable Śrāvaka Anālayo e...

Re: My new neighbor

I recommend earplugs and dark sunglasses. Maybe you can invite some friends to your cottage as well? I don't think the earplugs or dark glasses would really help. If I had some friends it would be good though, to kind of go through this experience with me. Thanks for the suggestions. Why is this su...
