Re: Regarding Kangling used in Chod practice

Different teachers and lineages have different answers to the question of Kangling.

Personally, I think it seems fair to start out with a wooden Kangling until you find a teacher or a lineage that provides you with a specific answer.

Aren't these the ones that you stop by building low doorways, but also break the back of corpses to prevent them from spontaneously arising?

Re: Practicing dharma as a pair

I have experiences similar to Magnus. My practice was not working well in my previous relationships with spiritually inclined girlfriends. My current non-Buddhist wife is much more supportive – and I more focused and less confused in my practice. We've been together for 15 years.

Re: Very sad news: Letter to Sogyal Rinpoche / Abuse allegations

The biggest red flag, I think, is lifestyle. Aside from the number of centers and students, how is the teacher living? Is she or he modest in lifestyle? Do they have more than one home? More than one car? If they do it could be ok, but it's a huge red flag, watch out! The other thing that always st...

Re: 3 year retreat vs Daily life practice

Tara Mandala's Gateway Program is a serious attempt at repacking a 3-year retreat into a 10-year format, at 2 hours per day. It won't make you a graduate of a 3-year retreat but you will have gone through the same program. Originally, it was seven years long but Tulku Sang-Ngag – who leads the later...

Re: The Shedra of Longchen Rabjam

Compared to most other online Dharma study programs, this Shedra is definitely more in-depth. For instance, Year 1 contains two main courses.

My conclusion is that he is legit, and my contact with him has not given me reason to think otherwise – on the contrary. Seems quite precious, if you are interested in Yamantaka.
