Re: boring questions about losing weight

I have been doing intermittent fasts continuously for more than 20 years now. I eat only once a day (every day except weekends) and feel no hunger during the day. :thumbsup: See the thread I posted to above over at DWT. I've been doing one meal a day for a long time too and maintain my ideal weight...

Re: Milarepa and the cave demons

It seems to be difficult to find the source of a traditional story. Could be comparable to the source of traditional songs... I found this about the sources of Milarepa stories in general: https://www.britannica.com/biography/Milarepa ...His life and accomplishments are commemorated in two main lite...

Re: Hooray for Nuclear Power

The people who advertize for nuclear power cannot count. This electricity is not cheap as soon as you add the costs for the storage of the waste.

Re: Is it bad if I, as a youngster Buddhist, go to parties and drink alcool or smoke weed?

I'm not an extreme guy. I just like to enjoy some drinks and some a bit of ganja and I just want to know your opinion. Despite my party life I love to follow the Dharma the best I can Regards :) You have to observe and answer it by yourself. I experienced in my life: "If you don't go in, you can't ...

Re: HHDL teachings Bodhgaya 2019/20

I haven't heard anything about exactly this.

But since His Holiness was very sick lately I can imagine that they have to shorten his schedule. He survived a pneumonia.

Happy Birthday and long life to dearest Dalai Lama. :namaste:

Re: Admin comings and goings

The name "Admin Greg" reminds me of Starship Enterprise :thinking: ... maybe because it has the same sound-rhythm as "Captain Kirk".

Anyhow, CONGRATS for taking responsibility and BEST WISHES.

Re: Stepping Down

Gosh, I'm really surprised! Just recently I thought: "PC will be admin forever!!!" You served this place so many years!!! Another lesson about impermanance.
Sorry to see you go. But I'm glad, I'm not guilty. ;)


Take good care. :heart:

Re: Are yidams and Tibetan Buddhist "deities" actually real?

This is kind of a sister post to the one in the Mahayana forum about Buddhas and Bodhisattvas being real, because I figured the Tibetan/Vajrayana approach was different enough to maybe give a different answer. Are Buddhas like Tara or Vairocana, bodhisattvas like Manjushri or Chenrezig, Dharma prot...

Re: Trauma and the public mind

I refer to the OP: I think, the phenomenon you observed, JD, just shows that pain is an internal process connected to negative thinking. Not the trauma itself creates the psychic desease but how people adjust or not. If a trauma is micro, it does not mean people suffer less. It just means the usual ...

Re: Bodhicaryāvatāra (text and commentary)

I think, it can be most interesting to read two versions of the same book. It reveals, how words are translation only. You can try to reach sense behind mere words.

And the Bodhicharyavatara is a deep work, worth studying in detail.
