Re: Garchen Nyingtig Yabshi Germany 2018 Questions

When someone asked Tulku Pema Wangyal about the benefits of this transmission... he said... the benefits will appear during one's journey in the bardo. I don't mean to sound dismissing, but when I hear someone tell me that the benefits of a given practice will be reaped during bardo - I am not inte...

I'm still studying discrete mathematics in the context of computer science but I find things such as the set-theoretic definition of numbers strikingly reminiscent and compatible with Buddhism. A real number is by definition something that must be defined on the bas...

There are nine stages. First three are the most practical/important. This can be learned at most TB ...

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

What's your opinion on Wilsonian Globalism? Well we don't live in an isolated dimension. Kevin You were worried about the immaturity of human beings, so what is a more mature way to engage in internationalism in your opinion? I am not worried about the immaturity of human beings. My primary focus a...

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

So domestic issues are why US ventures abroad? In other words, how would you tie this back to the situation in Syria. No, the US has been involved in Wilsonian Globalism for a long time and it's become embedded in our culture. But the strike in question, however, was an allied thing, not necessaril...

Do you feel the outcome of the American experiment is moral bankruptcy?
I feel it shows that a culture that does not socialize certain things suffers from many problems. Again, I am a fan of the Nordic model.

Re: US and Allies Launch Strikes on Syria

You feel it is an immaturity. What do you mean by that immaturity, and which countries do you feel are mature? Human culture is in it's adolescence, metaphorically speaking. Almost all societies now are very immature. Any culture that allows firearms to the public, doesn't have good education for k...
