By the way: In which country do you live ? Regards  M Fin...

Re: Is the motivator a demotivator?

Gods travel throught world on those moon days. They rejoice when they see that you practice. So, you give them merit as gift. You do more good. At least in Theravada.

This Sukhavati aspiration prayer contains a confession including samaya violations.
Luckily this is translated in my language (Finnish). I recite it sometimes. This brings me hope. But, I can't do it daily. I have weak voice.

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.

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...
