Re: Instant Mindfulness

Experience always happens in the moment and there is nothing we can do to stop it in its arising and passing. Because that is already so, that's why the mind is already mindful. It cannot be unmindful. http://www.lostinbrittany.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/images/2008-05/facehugger_baby.jpg :toilet:

Re: The basis is one's unfabricated mind

The translators of the treasuries of Longchenpa are using "the ground of being " very generously throughout their translations. Yeah, just a trend in translation gone awry, same with the trend of translating rigpa as 'awareness'. http://www.ka-gold-jewelry.com/images/white-bg/220/gordian-knot-small...

Re: Dzongsar Kyentse Rinpoche brief comment on Je Tsongkhapa

Sure. Even Buddha had prejudices and biases. It's very obvious when you read the Pali canon, for example. Buddha was a human being, he had a human brain, human sense organs and all the limitations of a human body (birth, aging, sickness and death). He was accused of sexual improprieties and all kin...

Yes, "winning" is a bloodless sports metaphor. How about something warlike say, victorious or crushing one's enemy?
