Does your's smell bad too? It seems many people don't like the strong smell.
It smells smoky but the smell does not linger like the perfumed soaps. No, it doesn't really dry my skin out.
Thanks.

What's the name of this in English?
Do a search for pine tar soap. That's how I find it on ebay.

Re: Psoriasis

What will work depends on what is causing it. Almost everybody that has been cured will quote a different treatment. Have you tried pine or birch tar soap? It works really well for other skin conditions. Buy the proper stuff from a Baltic country. The EU produced stuff (like Wright's Coal Tar Soap)...

Re: Instant Presence and Physical Pain

Honestly, these discussions are silly. One thing they can certainly result in is a massive confusion -- plus an equally massive amount of unrealistic expectations for newcomers to Dzogchen. What do you mean by this exactly? I think its a valid thing to discuss and its something anyone can relate to...

Re: Instant Presence and Physical Pain

[...] when you are in this state, mental factors associated with pain of the body have no means of arising. I have heard ChNN say, and more than once, that when you are resting in rigpa the pain does not disappear tout court. It may lessen (he actually used the modal verb here) or be experienced di...

Re: Instant Presence and Physical Pain

All painful sensations are the ripening of negative karma in the body. All pleasant sensations are the ripening of positive karma in the mind. Ok I understand that but think I'm getting lost with the meaning of the word "sensation". Are feelings and sensations the same? Because I thought pain is a ...

Re: Instant Presence and Physical Pain

All painful sensations of the body are the ripening of past negative karma. All pleasant sensations of the mind are the ripening of past positive karma. Even what we consider negative mental sensations are actually the ripening of negative karma in the body, and vice versa for pleasant sensations o...

Re: Instant Presence and Physical Pain

I am pretty sure suffering is a sensation. It is true, as long as one has a physical body one can experience physical pain and suffering. Also without a physical body one can experience mental pain and mental suffering. Pain and suffering are connected. /magnus I meant more like mental suffering. T...

Since pain is the actual basis for suffering it is such strange distinction to make. /magnus Is it really? Pain is a sensation. Suffering may not be a sensation.

Re: ChNN on presence

You are free to do as you like, but you, and everyone else, will be a much more solid practitioner if you cultivate the first dhyana. It involves cultivating these five mental factors. You start with mindfulness of breathing, four foundations of mindfulness, and so on. This is no different, really,...

@heart: Then I'm a little confused. I understood that first there's the Yamantaka transmission that takes 2 days or so (22 - 23.9.). After this there the retreat is apparently going on till 30.9., so in other words for the Nyingtik Yabshi 7 days are planned in. I am just wondering, if I would like ...
