Garab Dorje Rinpoche is Dudjom Rinpoche's grandson, Thinley Norbu's son and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche's brother.
Now THAT is a good lead!

Re: The Importance of the Body

My mother always warned me about listening to testosterone-pumped muscle-bound white guys wearing Odin's Hammer around their neck ranting on about how the body is "everything" (the crypto-fascist bells tend to go off really loudly). But Dominatrix ex-nuns in latex talking about "awake...

Re: Sam Harris receives a (literal) pointing out instruction

I do not think these sorts of popularizations of the teachings do anything more than confuse people. People are confused anyway, so introducing them to, and sparking interest in, Dzogchen and/or Advaita is not necessarily negative. A person's karma will influence where they will settle after that. ...

Re: Suicide bomb attack in Manchester - 19 dead, over 50 injured

Indeed. Remarkably good timing for a terrorist attack as far as the Right is involved.

I am sure everybody will try to capitalise politically on the suffering.

Penicillin is a physical substance, so it's not effected so much by talk as it is effected by exposure to sunlight, high temperatures and moisture.

Re: Speeches by Saudi King & President Trump

Behind the smiles and the sword dances lies the truth of the US-Saudi alliance. The whole thing is just a proxy war between the US and Russia, in reality. I hold them all responsible. One side is not better than the other. They are all engaged in wickedness of one kind of another. That is just how ...

Re: ISIL in the Caribbean

2. Poverty and illiteracy have been cited as causal, but in this case I pointed out that it was not so. Yes, they did mention poverty as a causal factor, at the same time one of the guys in the video (you did watch it, right?) talks about how business men are involved too. Actually some of the para...

Re: ISIL in the Caribbean

Both causal elements exist in the mix which leads to isolation, of course, but in terms of Islam there is a specificity which can tip from a desire to be separate to a desire to eradicate rival beliefs, values, education and law. I disagree that this is specific to Islam. The treatment of Muslim mi...

Maybe they could ban his immigration back into the USA on the grounds that he is making the trip to meet international terrorists... $110bn sure buys a lot of starving cholera racked Yemenis... https://img.rt.com/files/2016.09/article/57d9569ac461880c718b459c.jpg http://foreignpolicy.com/2017/05/20...
