Re: Hair Cutting Days

I stopped thinking of myself as a would-be 'advanced practitioner' or as a less 'advanced practitioner' about the same time as I stopped pretending to be a Tibetan. Whats left? The River Thames at high tide. The hills of Surrey in the rain. Same as it ever was. So now you pretend to be an English g...

Re: Troma Nagmo

The chod we do in the Dudjom Tersar uses Throma Nagmo as the yidam and includes the empowerments for the ngakpa accouterments.

Loppon Ogyan Tanzin Rinpoche will be giving the empowerment in Poland and Spain this year, if you are in Europe.

Re: How to NOT annoy the guru?

So how does one NOT annoy their guru exactly when one has many questions(whether it be over practices, understanding the teachings, etc.) and their guru is busy? Anyone? I have felt the same and what I find works is ask them about one teaching and a practice question then go an apply the teachings....

I think it’s just another example of the complete cluelessness of the Trump whitehouse and everyone in it.

Re: Dharmapalas and Consorts

Indeed, which is why I used 'unified'. I'm aware that some use 'neutral' or even worse, 'eunuch'. Either we say he is neither one gender nor the other, or is both genders unified and therefore neither one nor the other. Are you saying it is nothing to do with gender at all and 'nondual' in another ...
