And I could say the same of all those "dharmic" translations of Vajrayana and Dzogchen texts. For instance, there is not a single translation of the Ye-shes b...

Re: Lama Norha

Follow that line of thinking and create a "dream bubble". Imagine you in a traditional setting in Tibet or some other place and you are sitting around a reverenced leader and then when you are alone he touches you. I imagine it would be horrific. Your family has put a whole heap of expectations on ...

Re: Damaru and Kangling

I would go with Garudashop. Run by a great practitioner and excellent quality products. And, maybe just as important, he gives the people he buys from a very fair price.

Re: The Teacher-Disciple Relationship

Your teacher is not your friend. He or she is someone in whom you've placed your trust to guide you in the Dharma. Yes, but Dharma is connected to daily life.

I didn't see the pic, but could be Mingyur Rinpoche or Khachab. I have seen pics of both with electrodes.

Re: who wants to be a billionaire?
