Re: Kalachakra mantra pronunciation

It should pronounced: " Om Hamkshmlvrya svaha "! Look at the home page of Alexander Berzin, in the section on Kalachakra, and you'll find it there, the explanation of the pronounciation. but that's Sanskrit, not the actual Tibetan pronunciation. For example look here :http://www.kalacakra.org/namcu...

Kalachakra mantra pronunciation

I have heard different pronunciations of the Kalachakra heart mantra. Some lamas pronounce the nasal sound after "ha", others lamas pronounce it after "ya", and apparently there are also lamas that don't pronounce the nasal sound neither after "ha" neither after "ya". I was wondering whether there i...

Re: George Ivanovich Gurdjieff's "Self-Remembering" and Dzogchen

Self-remembering is probably better understood simply as a kind of mindfulness practice. Ever read Gurdjieff's novel? It's hilarious, very much worth the read. This article seems interesting:http://www.chronicleproject.com/stories_15.html Gurdjieff spent three and a half years in Tibet. He wrote in...

A question regarding direct introduction to one's own nature

Re: Pramodavajra

The Hevajra Tantra seems to look beyond the divisions among religions. For example: sarvam vijnanarupam ca purusah purana isvarah/ atma jivam ca sattvam ca kalah pudgala eva ca/ sarvabhavasvabhavo 'sau mayarupi ca samsthitah// The concepts of other traditions such as 'everything is consciousness in ...

Re: Pramodavajra

Why do you use the word "God" ? Please explain ?! Do you then mean Jehowah or Jahwe when you use it? Do you mean Allah with it ? Or do you mean Brahma perhaps ? I was wondering the same thing :\ Well, it's not me to use the word "God" but the guy who wrote the article for dharmafellowship.org. I kn...

Re: Eating Meat vs. Drinking Alcohol--Which is worse?

Dear hungryghost pali canon and mahayana sutras side with your view. Purchasing meat in the 21st century having plenty of alternatives in our western societies is unwholesome conduct. Kind regards The Ganden Tripa in an interview expounds different points of view: "Q: Is vegetarianism compulsory? I...

Re: Silk in Vajrayana, and the bodhisattva practice.

For instance in regards to statments as: "Make every effort not to kill any living creature, Birds, fish, deer, cattle and even tiny insects, And strive instead to save...
