Re: Is it rare to spend time with your guru?

I think it's a layered question. I think that it really depends on the student, not a one size fits all package. There are Students that benefit immensely from being close to a teacher, for others, it might have a negative effect. After all, the Three valley lama expression, or the expression of the...

Re: Lama Tsultrim Allione & Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche

Yes, because it didn't occur to me to ask him. C'mon, folks. If you can't answer my question, why bother responding just to state the obvious? :focus: Right, but why people are stating the obvious is because it is in fact obvious. In a way you set that up, because essentially instead of asking your...

Re: Lama Tsultrim Allione & Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche

He's a student of Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche. He didn't give a source, so it may have been firsthand. Don't you think if i had a source i would provide it here? That was the whole reason for the thread: to ask for source material on this... It would probably be best then if you were to ask him and get...

Re: Is it rare to spew don’t time with you guru?

Again, sorry if this offends anyone. There is no need to be sorry for sharing the truth. In fact, it's invaluable. In these days when the climate surrounding the Vajrayana is becoming very bizarre, it's quite an important thing to do. Thank you for being one of the posters who stays true to the Lin...

Re: Importance of Secrecy in Secret Mantra

There are even instructions not to tell others when one is going to go on a retreat, but rather to just do it.

I mean .. can you imagine ..

Doing a retreat, without making a post about it, letting everyone else know ones deity, and taking pics of ones room and altar set up.

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

We're talking as if the branding of Jetsun Shuksep by Lama Pema Gyatsho was a great transgression and a crime against females. Having been Jetsun Shuksep's student in my last life and one of Her present Tulku's shabji for almost 20 years in this life, I don't see it that way. Just with Marpa and Mi...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

The pronouns here are very confusing, is this Chatral Rinpoche telling attendants to remove a photo of CTR/SMR? Or are we talking about the Australian lama? I'm assuming the former. He's definitely telling them to get the photos out of his room. it is probably worth noting that neither Chatral Rinp...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

CT and his successors had public support endorsements from the heads of Kagyu and Nyingma. Moreover, they abused alcohol. They couldn't even keep the precepts... what about the vows and samayas? The lama linked above just had some affairs with some students, his negative impact on Dharma is much le...

A loss for the Buddhadharma in general, and the Vajrayana, and the Dudjom Tersar, in particular. I had been wanting to see him again to receive some teachings, but ...

Re: Mipham: Gelug = Svatantrika Madhyamaka

I'm sorry, but the modern problems with the Gelugpa lineage are not the fault of great masters like Trijang Rinpoche and Pabongkha Rinpoche but due to modern politics and the unconventional views of a particularly influential individual. There are hardly any Gelugpas on DW because the reputation of...

According to Tulku Namgyal Dawa Rinpoche's facebook, H.H Dudjom Sangye Pema Shepa Rinpoche (the Tibetan yangsi) will be presiding over the cremation ceremonies at Orgyen Cho Dzong. I'm not sure if he's ever visited the United States before, but in any case this is incredibly auspicious. It will be ...
