Re: Boundless Vision Tulku Tsolo

What are you talking about? Those texts weren't translated by Dowman. The first was translated by Khenpo Chowang and the second by Tulku Thondup, both were edited by Martin Boord. Unless Tulku Thondup uses megapixel too? The second is 250 pages long, the first 85. But other than browse through them...

Sure but I think that sometimes you need to first treat the symptoms before you're able to treat the cause.
The symptom is not poverty but craving - there's a fix for that. :)
I suppose that depends on how deep you look. :smile:

Re: Boundless Vision Tulku Tsolo

Basically that is correct. You need the lung for the root text at least. As for the Five Nails, I see these two translated commentaries from the other discussion: 1. "Five Nails: Commentary on the Northern Treasures Accumulation Praxis By Tulku Tsurlo": https://www.namsebangdzo.com/Five_Nails_p/220...

Re: is doing spell is ok in Buddhism?

The difference is between chosing between a permanent solution and a temporary solution which will just give you futher suffering in the future. It is the difference between treating the cause, or the symptoms. Sure but I think that sometimes you need to first treat the symptoms before you're able ...

Re: is doing spell is ok in Buddhism?

So you guys don't go see a doctor when you're ill? You guys just pray to Buddha and you're healed? When you do Dzambhala for wealth, Dzambhala somehow transforms your selfish intention into a pure one?

Re: Zazen and breathing

IMO, such questions as what originated where and who influenced whom are always too simplistic in their very formulation, and can seldom be answered completely satisfactorily. It is interesting and sometimes useful to consider the historical connections between traditions, but in the end the value ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

So, in other words, if I have practices from my other gurus, they have to be in a separate session? That's not terribly efficient, but I will do that if necessary. I was hoping I could just do all of them within a single session, beginning with refuge and ending with dedication of merits. Well all ...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

I enjoyed the book and I think it will actually be helpful to me even though I'm not practicing zen. Nice work! I do wish there'd be more on breathing practices though. :smile: BTW, do all the breathing practices in Rinzai lineage originate from Hakuin or are/were there other such practices before h...
