Re: in the air

Over Europe there is presently Sahara sand in the air. Sunrise and sunset are as red as if doomsday has come. I cannot enjoy its aesthetic, some ancient angst arises. Slight symptoms of migraine. Breathtaking constricts. My mind is since Saturday morning, I don't know, diffused, stirred. Subtly mul...

Re: Non-Duality in Dzogchen vs Advaita Vedanta

Mooji [Advaita/ Zen master who I am familiar with] says all phenomena are manifestations of consciousness and the same nature as consciousness. The consciousness he is referring to is the clear light mind or Buddha Nature. This view is accepted by some Tantric Prsangikas and is almost indistinguish...

A better world is also without chem trails. Chem trails contain substances which are bad for health.
there are many good ideas in this thread so far.

however: chemtrails do not exist. They are fiction.

Maybe Oreganol which is made from wild oregano can remove it. I have seen it advised in protocol for ulcer. It's very potent stuff.

Maybe also specific technology, like the rife devices, spooky2 for exemple, may be helpful to get rid of this, in a very targeted way.
Maybe.

So many maybes.

Re: helicobacter pylori bacteria endemic in Tibetan monastery

Thanks all for this enlightening thread. How does one get diagnosed with this problem? Here's how I was diagnosed: I went to see my MD for an unrelated condition. They ran a CBC and discovered I was anemic, like really scary anemic. So, they went hunting for where I was leaking blood. Endoscopy rev...

Re: The letter about Lamchen Gyalpo Rinpoches passing

I had the good fortune to hear him teach for about an hour on one occasion. I felt strongly at that time that I would really like to learn more from him, to receive more teachings, and so on. He was direct, clear, joyful, and humble. This was less than two years ago. No matter the content of that le...

I work at a large community college in the US (hint: one of our campuses isn't far from Virginia Falls...). I can't do the walkout tomorrow but I will be wearing an orange tie and attempting to broach this conversation with my colleagues.

Re: Your Spiritual Youth

TharpaChodron, your post reminds me of some recent experiences I've had with my daughter (21 months old). Her day school was cancelled one day so I took off work to take her to the Freer and Sackler galleries at the Smithsonian (Washington, DC). Lots of Buddha statues and images. One room is set up ...

Re: Political discussions on Dharma Wheel

Mantrik and Simon, instead of simply disagreeing, criticisms and insinuations about others' Dharma practice being cowardly or incomplete? Misrepresenting our position and dismissing us as snowflakes doesn't show any desire to communicate. If this is how metadiscussion about politics goes, maybe you...

Thangyal Tsédrup

I'm referring to the long life practice of Thang Tong Gyalpo.

I received this empowerment some time ago, and I have a daily practice text for it (it was in circulation among Chagdud Gonpa centers). I'd be interested in any commentaries on this practice, if any exist in English. Thanks.

For the purposes of this discussion and this subforum, what is meant by "mind"? What concept or concepts in Nichiren's teaching is translated with the English term, mind?
