Re: Mahamudra and Dzogchen

One cannot practice Lamdre from a Dzogchen point of view. Why? The basis of purification is different. The basis of purification of Lamdre is the five aggregates. The basis of purification of Dzogchen is pristine consciousness. If one knows the Dzochen before receiving Lamdre, those instructions of...

Re: Dream of being Hayagriva

I would like to know this hayagriva belong to which lineage. It was completely green, like Sandalwood forest tara. It was extremely wrathful but wearing the jewels ornaments. I will be grateful to any answer.

I would like to ask about one sakya text. Would anybody who knows reply me in private?

Re: Chakrasamvara Root Tantra

Yes, you can read. Even before receiving, you can read it for academic purpose but you can’t practice it. This is wrong. Nowhere in Buddhadharma is it explained that you can read for "academic purposes". The thing is, academics don't give a damn about what Buddhadharma says, because they use the ex...

Re: Chakrasamvara Root Tantra

For the case of tantra, you can read for academic purpose. For commentary, it depends on the commentators wish. They provide various provision who can read such commentary. If you have received full empowerment, then you may have chances to read various commentaries but that depends. It is not possi...

Re: Dream of being Hayagriva

I remembered I received it from one Sakya lama very long ago. There is a practice in Gelug: Most Secret Hayagriva. Probably, a year ago, HH Dalai Lama had given it as Anuttara Deity. It is a protector deity of Sera Je Monastery. Check out it in FPMT centers.

Probably three years ago, ChNNR has given a lung to a Dzogchen root text. Now I cannot recollect which one it is. If anyone has remembered its name, please would you like to share it?

Re: What's the point of abusive gurus?

It could be beneficial to those who cling to some ideas to which they are unable to drop easily. Later, after abuse or hardship, they transform it into their strength of realization.

In this the Dalai Lama basically says he is enlightened.
He does not claim such things. But he says he has some experiences and certainty regarding to compassion or bodhicitta as he has been practicing it for such long years.
