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...

Re: Lama Pema Dorje

Another great being has left our world again, I have only met him briefly, yet vividly, At Dungse thinley norbu Rinpoche's parinirvana. 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...

Re: Dungsey Shenphen Dawa Norbu Rinpoche entered into Parinirvana

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 ...

Re: Keith Dowman's argument for his "interpretive free" translation style

Do we have any fans of the "naropa" "university" translation style? Naropa.jpg SMH Of course the issue of translation is a nuanced one, but we really cannot underestimate its importance.

Nice. DJKR seems to think very highly of him.
