Re: Dream of being Hayagriva

Hayagriva (Tamdrin to Tibetans) features heavily in the Yangzab terma cycle held in Drikung Kagyu, being the yidam of the Yangzab Three Roots. Do you remember your color(s), attributes, and the actual mantra from your dream, @fckw? Those details could help you narrow down which precise form you're l...

Re: Meaning of Kamtsang

Ok. So S+N=K, and K= KK. Not quite. Kamtsang is a lineage, and both Surmang and Neydo are sub-lineages or branches of that which have their own specials emphases, practices, teachings, and lineage holders. Surmangpas don't necessarily add in Neydo and vice versa, nor do all Kamtsangpas mix Surmang ...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

I'm beginning to think that the only crazy wisdom we really need these days is a radical respect towards women that breaks from the patriarchal norm; that actually acknowledges them as not only being embodiments of the feminine divine, but as human beings, too, and therefore their equal rights to ed...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

Dude obviously Shambhala has done more damage to Dharma than one Sakyapa. Nyingma and Kaygu and their late heads now have a thick shadow cast on them. It makes it even worse that Osel was drinking while abusing. The Sakyapa guy seems to have been just cheating on his wife (obviously no good but way...

Re: Drupon Thinley Ningpo - Yangzab Varahi and Shamatha Mahamudra Retreat (July 20-23)

Miroku, I'm not 100% sure, as I've not heard yea or nay from the organizer, but in general Drupön Rinpoche doesn't do webcasts. And as far as Yangzab Varahi goes, he's actually asked at least one other DDC not to record his teachings related to the Yangzab Six Yogas. So it's just a guess, but i have...

I believe he also said something to the effect that there is no need to...
