Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I really don't have time for this. Any more posts about meepits post (including about what is restricted here and what is not) will be removed from sight. Warning will be handed out (liberally).

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I was not commenting on a moderating decision at all (perhaps I should not have mentioned the post, seemed to have caused this confusion), I was commenting on your implication that there is no problem with talking about what is available in public books. The moderation decision was that what was po...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

These things are available in non-restricted, publically available books. Writing them here does not constitute a problem. Don't remember what was in the post but I think this reasoning is insufficient since by now basically the entire path of Dzogchen and a bunch of other Vajrayana stuff is availa...

I've noticed that Buddhism translated into English leads to a lot of confusion in terms of language.

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I disagree. I could be wrong of course, but I would never write something like that online. I fail to see the problem. I think most people get a little anxiety before they engage in a lot tantric practice. If a person has trouble visualizing and so on, I could see how this could give them a lot of ...

Re: Shouldn't this subforum have restricted access?

This has been discussed a number of times. The fact is that people are going to talk about Dzogchen on the internet anyway. There are many places for them to do so.

Re: Is Nichiren Shu the most traditional of all the Nichiren sects?

is Nichiren the True Buddha of our age? Well, that would depend on who you ask. If you ask Nichiren Shoshu or SGI they would say yes. Actually I'm not sure they would say yes. Ultimately their argument is that if Shakyamuni attained enlightenment in the distant past then he must have had a teacher,...
