Re: Lama Jampa Thaye

Not to bring up a spectre on your path, but i would consider carefully when it comes to Karma Kagyu lamas. Due to the lineage split decades ago, certain lamas have certain allegiances, and many practitioners do, too. I personally went from OTD's camp staunchly to meeting lots of solid practitioners ...

Re: All Things Chod--Links and Upcoming Events

77A2B7E2-E3E2-4B93-A558-14AE7D808DA7.jpeg For the Oddiyana Retreat with Lho Ontul Rinpoche, should that read as Shravasti rather than Sharasvati? Seems like they're all places of pilgrimage, and Shravasti not only was where Buddha Shakyamuni spent the majority of his awakened life in Jetavana (Cool...

Re: Lama Tsultrim Allione & Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche

Perhaps there are others out there like me who have interest in one or both teachers who desire to be informed so that they can make up their own minds. If the teachers didn't want news of their conflict spreading, perhaps they should've avoided the conflict in the first place. Personally, in light ...

Re: Lama Tsultrim Allione & Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche

Yes, because it didn't occur to me to ask him. C'mon, folks. If you can't answer my question, why bother responding just to state the obvious? And no, i don't have a particular connection to Gangteng Rinpoche specifically. However, there is a certain amount of the Peling terma in Drikung from what i...

My Inji friend Pema who lives in India. He's a student of Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche. Asked me not to share Tara Mandala stuff with him on FB when i messaged him about the recent FYD Pilot Study vid, and when i asked why not he told me.

Re: Tilopa and Matangi

I'm quite taken aback by the Sutra referring to Matangi's daughter as an impure "artifice," as if she's an object and not a being with buddha-nature, but the rest seems to be alright to me.

Lama Tsultrim Allione & Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche

Has anyone else heard that these two had a falling out? Can anyone point me to resources that say why if it is true? Not interested in maligning anyone, just want to have all the facts. As I've said before, I've been considering doing work-study or applying for a job out there at Tara Mandala, so i ...

Re: Tilopa and Matangi

It occurs to me that not only could Matongha and Matangipa be different figures not to be conflated, but that the opposite may well be true. I think it's safe to say that even hagiographies of great masters have been subject to patriarchal bias, so perhaps Matangipa was really a dakini but those wh...

Anyone know if the first 3 days are still up on Facebook as videos? That's what i get for not checking DW for a few days. Just saw this now...

Re: german prosecution office investigates Ole Nydahl for incitement to hatred

Tibetan Muslims lived in relative harmony in Tibet as a minority culture. And let's just disabuse you of the notion that "all Muslims are bad people" right now. Would you appreciate it if anyone made a sweeping generalization about everyone who was your ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religio...

Re: Tilopa and Matangi

Might be the Matang(g)ipa (Wyl. ma tang+gi pa ) in the Mar-Ngok Hevajra lineage prayers, where it's implied that he bestowed Hevajra upon Tilopa. According to Thurman, there's also a Mantanggi who was a thief before meeting Nagarjuna. I believe it's from his Jewel Tree of Tibet . Could be the same f...
