Re: Donating one's organs at death

Well, how much time is it effective? The cause for incurable disease is there for quite a long time. They just delay their expiating suffering. Think what happens to the transplant recipient after death... That kind of despair for life. I saw some blood transfusion patients, and they are not happy....

Re: Hair Cutting Days

Deciding what is essential and what not. On what basis do you, for example, make this decision regarding the use of a solar or lunar calendar? What, in your opinion, makes a solar calendar essential and modern, as opposed to the disposable and archaic lunar calendar? Why is a lunar calendar necessa...

Re: Donating one's organs at death

What is the use for an organ transplant if the karmic cause of the illness is not exhausted? Just prolonging your suffering life... If you receive and organ transplant and it works then the karmic cause of the illness is exhausted. Receiving or not receiving an organ transplant (and the body accept...

Re: Hair Cutting Days

European and Asian medieval world views are medieval world views. None are superior to any other. There is nothing racist or condescending about that. To be fair, the lunar calendar is far much older then the medieval era. Duly noted. My answer still stands. The aim of Buddhadharma is not in my vie...

Re: Hair Cutting Days

Well speaking for myself I did not turn to Buddhadharma in order to substitute one set of medieval beliefs for those from another culture, or to spend my short human life in pursuit of spiritual materialism. But hey, whatever floats your boat. Just to put an end to your nonsense: the lunar calender...

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?
