"If one has sex at an inappropriate time or place, with someone who is a virgin, not one’s wife, or not a woman, one is guilty of the sin of sexual misconduct."
What if one's wife is a virgin? When women is considered as a wife? Buddhism has no wedding ceremonies.

The aspiration to attain full buddhahood itself is of inconceivable benefit from the point of view of the cause. It is the cause of all benefit in samsara.

How long were the stream? I didn't watch last 15 minutes. Can I continue this seminar? I can't pay for recordings. You should email them with your situation.

Re: Who can read Dzogchen books?

Anyone with cash. The question is, should you read them? It very much depends on the book in question. In general, if you do not have Dzogchen transmission, then it is best not to read them, even if they have been published by someone who has a reputation as a qualified guru a.k.a, Dzogchen master ...
