Re: Chess

Chess in general is a huge distraction for me. More like an addiction or guilty pleasure. Very difficult to mantain open presence while focusing so acutely. I play mostly 5 minute and feel agitated afterwards.

Re: Illusion in Dzogchen

Tashi delek, Am interested about: - Your reasoning and your vision about illusion. - In how far do you see illusion as "realistic"? Best wishes Illusion is to be experienced not analyzed. Why do you think that illusion cannot be known by insight ? You can have many intellectual ideas about illusion...

Re: question on distingushing mind from it's nature

So here is the million dollar question: if thoughts and concepts are not also of the nature of mind, if they can only be born of delusion, then has EVERYTHING that has been said and quoted in this thread purely delusional? You changed the wording from your initial "in reality thoughts are none othe...

Re: gaze/open eyes/closed eyes

I've gotten a few different pronouncements on why one should have eyes open during contemplation, rather than closed. I notice though that some teachers and students, and well, sometimes even ChNN Rinpoche had his eyes closed at times. I am wondering if there is any true rule, or if it just a "best...

Re: Chod Damaru vs standard Damaru

Don't think so. It is the big ones used in pujas like the ones Grigoris has shared. Not damaru. i have heard recordings of ChNN playing damaru during puja, just wondering about specifically using a chod drum for something other than chod. Was it really damaru? If yes then it would be the small one ...

Re: Sedona/Flagstaff

Hey guys, I'm headed to Flagstaff and Sedona this weekend for a brief visit and was wondering if anyone knows of any good Buddhist, especially of the Tibetan or Vajrayana persuasion, things to do there.

Ok, may I ask what word is being translated here and why it did not find a place in the glossary?
Generally, the word being translated here as attachment is chags pa.
It is not a very interesting word, hence no entry.
Ok thanks. I was hearing hoof beats and looking for zebras.
