Re: Looking for phonetics/translation of Milarepa praise

Thank you so much Lama Rinchen Zangmo. The guru yoga text I'm using is 'Splendidly Blazing Wisdom: A Guru Yoga and Feast Offering of the Great Lord Repa by Jamgon Lodro Thaye' in the translation from KTD. I do have the full text of the heart prayer - I will scan and PM you. Any leads to a translatio...

Looking for phonetics/translation of Milarepa praise

I have received a text for a Milarepa praise as part of a lung for the Milarepa Guru Yoga. Does anybody have a version with phonetics and/or English translation? Or knows where I could find one? This is the title page:

Re: Yidams, imagination or real entity?

There are a number of Tibetan Centres in Jakarta - Kagyu, Ningma, Tergar Community, Geluk I think as well. There will be a Kagyu Monlam in Borobudur in May. There are actually many high lamas passing through Jakarta. There is also a Kagyu Centre in Surabaya I think. Check Vihara Er Di on Facebook.

Re: The Dalai Lama Says Gay Marriage Is OK

Actually, Jeff does not believe in rights for anyone, he stated so a few posts back. He does not even believe that he has "equal rights" or "human rights", even though of course his ability to spew the nonsense he has been spewing lately is possible because he has both. You are misrepresenting me a...

Re: Getting moskitos out of my room

Loads of mosquitos in my house, too hot to close the windows and any efforts to collect and remove them from the house would be a total waste of time. So I sleep under a mosquito net, resign myself to getting a few bites a day and cultivate a healthy ecosystem in and around the house - spiders, geck...

Re: Group mechanics - How to guide without forcing

Finally, don't assume that people who are no researchers don't have anything to contribute. In all teams you have people with a variety of competencies, views and personalities. They all have something important to contribute. And they will, if they are in an environment where they feel valued and ...

Re: Group mechanics - How to guide without forcing

So the team I've been assigned to has many people of differing capacities, some people have done research and some haven't and so have more or less to contribute in meetings. We have not formally picked team leaders as suggested and our meetings have not led anywhere productive yet because the peop...

Re: Difficulty in right action

Recent developments, I asked my parents to sleep on my bed to monitor my studying behaviour. They don't trust me to study, so I said reasonably that they could just watch me for once (while sleeping). They said they didn't care about me studying and that I should do what I like. How am I supposed t...

Re: Mental health in the first world

@palchi: Are you taking about the urban poor who of course have it horrible? The rural poor who can still eek out a sustenance agricultural existence are often poor materially, but actually much happier. It is when they become "integrated" enough into capitalism to not be able to farm and have to s...

No, you can recite them all the time, even just quietly in your mind.

Re: Mental health in the first world

Not many mental health problems in developing countries? That is not my experience here in Southern Africa - there are clearly many people with mental health problems: suicide rates are high, levels of sexual violence against children, rape, domestic violence, teenage pregnancies, abandonment of bab...

Re: First cases of totally drug resistant TB in India, one dead

The 'totally drug resistant' TB was named as such because they couldn't find a better term compared to the MDR-TB. TDR-TB did not respond to tests for 12 of the 14 by the WHO recommended drugs. Bad enough but not entirely hopeless yet... More here: http://www.irinnews.org/report.aspx?reportid=94656"...

Re: Travelling with herbal medicine

Well now I'm conflicted... As far as the medication itself it's just some bags with "morning", "lunchtime" and "evening medicine" on them. At a guess one's agar 35 but I don't really know. I would like to keep up the continuity of treatment. I don't know if that's important. Paul, hand luggage chec...

Re: Travelling with herbal medicine

Thanks to everyone for the advice. I'm traveling within Europe, so don't have to deal with the TSA (who seem crazy). Here in the UK the laxity of our border staff is in the press at the moment. Again. I don't have a prescription for it and don't even know what it is - it was given to me by a proper...
