Re: Vegetarian and Tibetan Buddhism

As far as I know, Tibetans find sea food disgusting and unethical to eat it. They think, it is better to eat meat from huge animals like cows instead of small ones like crabs, because there won't be so many individuals who have to die for one meal. The Tibetan lamas I know eat vegetarian often. Meat...

Re: Eyewitness account of recent Tibetan sky burial

I once saw a TV documentary mentioning it. The burial was no social event, i.e. nobody came to join it.
There was only a young monk doing his job kind of respectfully: feeding the vultures.

Re: Jim Carrey does a no-self bit

Well, the interviewer is only doing her job - and Carrey is doing the same. So, as result both have a wonderful interview everybody talks about. No harm. His humor has always been sarcastic, ironic, pointing out truths in a very funny way. I think, this is great art. And I don't believe the gossip a...

Re: Mahayana teaching on Brahma

I mean, in the rituals offerings are made to all kinds of beings. But that's not the same as worship and it is not at all taking refuge to them. I was refering to the advice, one should only take refuge to Buddha, Dharma, Sangha and (one's Lama in Tantra praxtice). I cannot imagine Vajrayana practi...

Maybe Christians won't approve burning their incence on a Buddhist altar? I'm not sure. Would it bother them?

Re: Counting mantras

If you have a daily goal of mantra recitations, how do you keep track of them? Especially when there are many little interruptions in recitation just during the course of an ordinary day.
