Re: Pure Land practice and Vajrayana (HYT)

Watch if you are not too limiting yourself. Anyway keep your samayas pure and you will get a good rebirth. So do the deity you had the initiation on. Or maybe just vajrasattva to keep samayas pure. I wish prerequisite for any initiation were reading WOMPT. They didn't tell me about vajrasattva at b...

Re: Pure Land practice and Vajrayana (HYT)

Yes, ask a teacher who gave/will give you inner tantra initiation. There is always a way. Well, as far as I understant it the outer tantra is here for those who are not yet ready for inner tantra, mahayana sutra is here for those who are not ready for outer tantras, and hinayana sutras are here for...

There are many methods of purification, some of which you must already have.
I was said it is for 3 years exceeders. When I recite confession prayer I don't remember all breakages and transgressions.

Difficulties to meet with one's Teacher

I have difficulties to meet with my Vajrayana Teachers. One is Shakya Trizin. I can't travel. One Teacher who lives in my country is far away. I'm not sure when I can ask him few questions. What I can do meanwhile? I think I have done all these years only a lip service. I don't know when I can ask t...

Re: Pure Land practice and Vajrayana (HYT)

Maybe not highest yoga tantra but some of the outer tantras would be better since you are interested in outer power? I have received inner tantra transmission already. Can you practice inner and outer at same time? Can outer tantra resolve problems with inner tantra? Yes, ask a teacher who gave/wil...

Re: Pure Land practice and Vajrayana (HYT)

How many of you have practiced Vajrayana? Have you received anuttara-yoga-tantra or inner tantra initiation? Can you practice both? Can you maintain and purify samayas with Amituofo? Do you feel you can achieve rebirth there solely with Amituofo-chant? Can you rely exclusively on other power with s...

Re: Symptoms Before Vajra Hell

You should ask your teacher what to do. I asked from him which is best purification practice. He gave short mantra. He is Nyingma. I wonder why it differs from Gelug version. Can I be Gelugpa, if I follow TDR and ChNN? I don't understand the "problem" you have here. You asked your teacher, he gave ...

Re: Symptoms Before Vajra Hell

Fixing samaya is just as easy and a hell of a lot of fun too: You invite around all your yogi and yogini friends and give them loads of alcohol and meat, sing songs, dance and during the party some of them may even get laid. What if you can't arrange or get to tsogs? Only Dharma Center which arrang...

Dylan, why are you so worried about this? Just follow ChNN's advice: guruyoga helps maintain all samayas. Who is Dylan? I took webcast WWT 4 years after my first initiation. Almost instantly I committed root downfall. I then made parrot-mouth confessions monthly. 3 and a half years passed and I rec...

Re: Five Heinous Crimes = Samaya Breaker ?

Why would someone who receives an empowerment and fails to practice and maintain their samaya be reborn in Avici Hell along with sentient beings who have committed the five heinous crimes? failing to practice is not a problem. Failing to maintain samaya, however, is. You need to review the fourteen...

Re: Karmic consequences of suicide in the tibetan tradition

Is it bad karma to wish sooner death or to be killed? I have wished sooner death and to be killed to prevent breaking samaya. I have also prayed deities to kill me if I have broken samaya.
