Re: Latest report on Shambala abuse just released.

Relative to the comment made by Grigoris on people's opinions about Pema Chodron. . . I didn't ask anyone to read her mind, but simply to voice their opinions about her steadfast loyalty to an abusive group, especially Trungpa's behavior. I wanted input so I could be more clear on what to consider a...

Re: Latest report on Shambala abuse just released.

What do folks think about the comments related to Pema Chodron, that she victim-shamed an abuse victim and is also on the so-called Transition Team? I have had my concerns about her for some time, especially since she has never distanced herself from Trungpa. And apparently now, she is colluding wit...

Re: Greetings from Wales

Ah Wales, my favorite place! I have lived there off and on since 1985, got married in Haverfordwest and went to the University of Aberystwyth for a master's degree in heritage studies. Always a longing to return.
There is a Tibetan sangha in Bangor, if that's of interest.

Re: Hello from Oregon

Actually, the choices are limited to the most populated areas of Oregon. The South Coast is greatly lacking in options, so I travel to Ashland where I belong to a meditation center.

Dear Simon, I am normally a lurker on these boards, but I felt I had to write and say that you are a valued member of this forum. I am 59 and appreciate what you, and the others - no matter their age - have to say. Please reconsider your decision to leave.

Re: Lay Female Lamas

Lama Pema and Lama Yeshe, my teachers, are both lay lamas. They teach at Kagyu Sukha Choling, in Ashland, Oregon, as Cone said. They hold both Karma Kagyu and Shangpa Kagyu lineages.

Re: Method of taking Bodhisattva vows in different tradition

When I took the Bodhisattva vow, I was a bit frustrated not to understand the words as they were in Tibetan. I didn't really know what I was repeating and stumbled over the words since I don't know much Tibetan. It was a fairly casual ceremony as well, done by the current Kalu Rinpoche. In some ways...

Re: Yidams: What are they, how does one get one?

I had forgotten that yidam practice is a form of shamatha. My teachers have said that one more than one occasion. Thanks for reminding me!
