Re: Dagpo Kagyu empowerments

You’re going to have to cite a specific kagyu instruction manual to define what you mean by “Tantric mahamudra” in kagyu. Citing secondary texts that define the thing they’re criticizing will only lead to confusion. Also if it’s a critique of what Gampopa specifically did, you’ll need a text of Gam...

Maybe the mods should create a new thread - “the great ngakpa/robes debate” - and use it like the thread for vegetarianism?

Paul weller was ok, I got the lyric reference. Prefer “in the city” or classic class warfare of “Eton rifles”. Don’t know if the public wanted the style council, but we certainly got it tho!

Re: Tsa Lung and Guru Yoga in the Bön tradition vs Tibetan Buddhism

to be honest, i wouldn't buy the bon ticket at all. I don't know TWR at all, but that's a pretty sweeping statement. There are excellent, accessible Bon teachers out there and their presentation of Dzogchen practice is consistent in all important ways with the Nyingma presentation. Of course some N...
