Re: The Dangers of Diluted Buddhism

Quite an interesting article from Lama Jampa Thaye. What do you think about his warning? https://tricycle.org/trikedaily/diluted-buddhism/?utm_source=social&utm_medium=fb Isn't he saying beware of false Buddhism without saying what true Buddhism is? Although I see this is an excerpt, perhaps it wou...

Re: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

All registrants are required to take the teachings in sequential order, starting from the beginning of the seminar. Is recordings enough? The first 3 days will be live-streamed and free, via Facebook and simultaneously on DharmaSun.org. They might live-stream the whole seminar. I would contact them...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I don't think it is shaming, if someone thinks there is a problem it is good to say it rather than letting others continue doing something that may be wrong. The problem is that in such cases it is not very clear how much or what kind of information is ok. It's not that difficult: Information from ...

Re: When the villagers gave up hunting...

In what way does it make perfect sense to you to take a vow to stop killing and then continue killing? ... I have no idea about the topic but regarding the above it seems to me it is not so difficult to take a vow in a kind of spur of the moment thing and then not follow through, so it wouldn't be ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Doing ganapuja completely alone is no good. If done with webcast then you ofc prepare separate plate for three roots also a glass. But alone it is better to do medium thun. According to Rinpoche, while it is ideal to do it collectively, it can be done by oneself. Really? Yes. Page 194 of the Teachi...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

When you do ganapuja by yourself do you need to prepare a seperate plate for three roots or do we just first offer our plate? DS Doing ganapuja completely alone is no good.

You mean if you do not remember your dreams, or do you mean being unaware that in a dream you are dreaming?
The latter.
You are still conscious.
I'm sorry but I don't understand.

When you dream, you are conscious, but what you are experiencing is the activation of traces.
But if I don't know I am dreaming, how can you say that I am conscious?

Re: Psychoanalysis

... The model used, if one can call it a model, is clarity vs. cloudiness, distracted vs. undistracted. That is If your mind is clear/concentrated, you can remember more, if your mind is cloudy/distracted, you remember less. But in this model, no storage medium was ever proposed or even intimated. ...

Re: Psychoanalysis

Thanks! In Buddhadharma, there is nowhere any discussion of an unconscious mind which performs functions below the level of awareness. This is a modern idea from modern psychology. It comes originally from the 189th century German philosopher Schiller, was taken up by the poet Coleridge, and placed...

Re: Only thirteen buddhafields?

In mahayana there is an inmeasurable number of nirmanakaya and sambhogakaya buddhafields, but in dzogchen there are only thirteen buddhafields (zhing khrams) is this correct? As far as I understand, there are thirteen buddhafields where Dzogchen teachings exists, not thirteen in all. Actually it is...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

They switched to Ganapuja soon. The Shitro is almost certainly Namcho, I don't recall another one (well there's Changchub Dorje's I guess but in Collective Practices it's Namcho). Which is the one related to Yangti? I recall a transmission in 2014 but don't remember which one. The Namcho one but th...

Any idea which formal practice we ought to be doing right now?

Edit:

They are doing Shitro in Dzamlinggar right now.
Uhh is that the right thing to do? Any idea what is the reasoning behind it?
