Re: Jigten Sumgon Chod

I don't know anyone who would say it is ok to practice Chöd without lung, or special permission by a bona fide teacher. I understand you are interested in the Jigten Sumgon Chod, but offer the resources below as alternatives or training while you are pursuing the lung for it. You can practice Feedin...

Re: Wrathful deities

This is a vacuous assertion. Why? This kind of statement is found nowhere in the tantras, etc. It is a ridiculous assertion meant to intimidate people. I think I understand the intimidation point, however my sense is that the motivation in this case was very, very different. The assertion was based...

1. What would be some of the pros and cons for practicing with a wrathful deity?
One of my teachers told me you run a greater risk of damaging your nervous system with wrathful Yidams if you practice beyond your capacity, such as in retreat. The energy being more 'agitative'.

Re: Purifying disdain and negative thoughts towards spiritual teachers

I think an important element of this process, at least for most Westerners, is understanding psychologically the source of these emotions and how they interplay with your psychological make up. Exploring that in the safety of dialogue with a trusted, and wise, Sangha member could be one way of doing...

Re: Tara’s Triple Excellence

In terms of very accessible, lamrim structured, Yidam centric programs, it's gold standard. Well balanced and integrated. Mileage will vary in terms of whether the online medium sits well with you or not.

Re: What Shamatha tradition best prepares one for Dzogchen?

Tulku Urgyen used to say, I been told, that people that developed a strong shamatha practice where the most difficult person to give direct introduction. People like Allan Wallace is putting an unnecessary distance between the student and the natural state in my opinion based on what I been told by...

Re: Online Cho Retreat: Transmission, Commentary and Practice

An important question, thank you for asking. I can only speak of this particular branch of this lineage, which comes down through the 9th Khalkha Jetsun Dampa – who was a very close friend of HH Dalai Lama. Jetsun Dampa was very clear that he sided with HH Dalai Lama on this issue, and there is no c...

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.
