Re: Eminem darkness

America cannot get what mass-shooting really means.. Oh, we get it all right, there simply is no political will to deal with the issue properly because of the Jesus and Guns crowd. Sorry, I didn't address you intelligent people as 'America' here but the crowd who votes for guns. Violence is being e...

Re: Eminem darkness

As non-native speaker maybe I don't get the message correctly. But anyhow Eminem sells worldwide. I find the video disgusting because it identifies with the murderer most. "Poor man. He was so lonely he had to drug himself and shoot people." The victims are not shown at all and when he shoots himsel...

Re: Responding to insults

I think, not taking insults personally is not the same as indulging everything. Patience is not an external thing like 'never respond'. It is only the result of a bigger overview. It is not patience when you feel insulted, feel angry, and say nothing. If someone harms you, you can even stop him with...

Re: How to make torma to eat.

Yes, there seem to be many different recipes for making tormas.
In our region we mix marzipan and quick oats with few water. For the red color we take paprika powder.

Re: The Dalai Lama has new Oracles

As far as I understand, oracle is no stable position. There are male and female oracles and they leave this position as well. The person who's slips into this roll is not so important. More important are the deities they represent.

Re: The Dalai Lama has new Oracles

The article you have linked in only describes an ordinary longlife ceremony. You can't derive any further information about the oracles from it, I think.

Volunteer your time at a charity.

Don’t forget to do the service with bodhicitta motivation and to dedicate the merit when you’re done. If it’s a christian charity just keep that on the down low.

Win-win.

Re: Yeshe Tsogyel Mantra

Because it was argued the regarding mantra should not be published here, a further discussion regarding OP's question is not possible.

Further questions can be posed in the subforum Buddhist Tantra Talk or in a new thread without mentioning mantras or showing YouTube videos.

Re: Tantra

Yes, because they think in the size of many lives of dharma practice. Anyhow the lamrim is important. Precious teachings: The cause and meaning of renunciation, the practices of bodhisattvas, bodhicitta, concentration and shamata. An understanding of emptiness. These teachings have to be understood ...

Re: Strength

I found the story at youtube. Schoolkids are reading it in German. The author of the picturebook is Mario Ramos, published in Beltz Verlag. My memory was a bit poor. The title is "Ich bin der Stärkste im ganzen Land" (I am the strongest one of all). The wolf is adult and he meets several small entit...

Re: Strength

When my kids were small we had a picture book called "I am the strongest" ("Ich bin der Stärkste").
A little wolf learned that it is poor and easy to be violent against smaller beings. Instead real strength is to overcome one's fear.
This was one of the best and most consoling books for the kids.
