Refuge in the Sutras

Hello,

I was wondering and wanted to ask if Refuge is talked about in the Sutras or if it is something that was devised later?

Thank you.

Re: Empowerments are for life?

Is there something about having three years to repair a Samaya otherwise it’s not repairable?

Thank you.

Samadhi

Hello,

Is Samadhi a Pali word or a Sanskrit word?

If it is a Sanskrit word is it different than Dhyana?

Thank you.

Dissolution of the Deity

Hello, In regards to the generation and completion stages when the deity is dissolved does that pertain to the generation stage or the completion stage? I had thought that it pertained to the start of the completion stage but after coming across some other sources they said that it was at the end of...

Generation Stage Mandala (Nyingma Model)

Hello,

I have received a short to middle length teaching on the Generation Stage but Rinpoche never said anything about a visualization of a Mandala and I was wondering where this sort of comes into play with things like the three samadhis and deity visualization?

Thank you.

Uncertain about Key Point of Tantra

Hello, I know that Tantra speaks about the unity of conventional and ultimate truth or the feature of there being the unity of this in one act of consciousness but I am uncertain if this is something that runs through all of Tantra or if it something that comes into play only during a specific phase...

Re: Bardo of Dying

Okay, thank you. I think that makes sense then that it would start before you would technically be pronounced dead. I know that in the teachings on the Bardo of Dying they talk about the dissolution of the five senses and I guess then that that starts at the very end of one's life (when the irrevers...

Bardo of Dying

Hello,

I am unsure of when the bardo of dying starts. Does it start after someone has taken their last breath and would technically be pronounced dead or does it start like say if someone were in a hospice and only had a few days to live would it start around that time?

Thank you.

Re: Buddha and Non-Dual Means

Like Buddha taught having the conventional and ultimate aspect of reality in one act of cognition.

Or something like when King Ja received the Statue of Vajrapani he meditated on its form and emptiness appearance but that this was something that had already been taught by the Buddha.

Re: Best Books on Shamata

Tsongkhapa's Lam Rim Volume Three is also pretty good. Gives a technical presentation of Shamatha as to how it is usually presented within the Tibetan Tradition.
