Re: After Recognition of Nature of Mind...

Poker and futures. I play 5 card on the low end table. Hold em gets expensive quick. I love throwing bones though. I may need to supplicate Dorje Legpa... I've recently started playing holdem again, I used to play both online and live about 12-15 years ago. I gave up, and 'retired' in decent profit...

Re: After Recognition of Nature of Mind...

I think there is a lot to parse, such as whether what you mean as recognition is the same thing as Garchen Rinpoche means as recognition. You might be talking about a glimpse, and he may talking about the first Bhumi. I have not heard other teachers say that once you have had an initial recognition...

What type of gambling do you do? Poker and futures. I play 5 card on the low end table. Hold em gets expensive quick. I love throwing bones though. I may need to supplicate Dorje Legpa... I understand. There is holdem with limits and no limit holdem. To play pro you need a stake and play the buy in...

Re: Death in the family

Hello Dharmawheel community - my partner's father is about to pass away. As far as I can tell, all looks peaceful and auspicious, but if anyone can include him in their daily prayers/practices for the next few weeks I would be appreciative. His name is Noel. I think Guru Rinpoche is especially good...

Re: Does the lung and wang empowerment of a deity and sadhana allow you to use other versions of the sadhana?

Hello everybody! Thanks for your help with my last question. I had another empowerment/sadhana related question. It is probably fairly obvious, but it was hard to find a specific post about it when I searched. For example, in my case, I have received empowerment for the practice of Green Tara - can...

Re: Does the lung and wang empowerment of a deity and sadhana allow you to use other versions of the sadhana?

An empowerment help to access your wisdom mind and express it in the form of green tara. Empowerment is not about « autorisation ». It is about maturation. One essence, multiple ways to express it. Focus on the essence and you will become free. But by all means, do follow your Guru as he/she expres...

Re: After Recognition of Nature of Mind...

The Ma sang are credited with inventing Pagchen, the "Great Game," a sort of Tibetan version of dominoes, popular in the Dzogchen Community. I played the Boss a couple of times. It was intense. He yelled at me once because he could not read my face, "Don't be indifferent" he said. He liked to win, ...

Re: i'm scared about death

Re: Sex and Samaya

Greg is right. It is a samaya if you have received that path fully. If you have finding a karmamudra partner is not going to be easy. It is a whole path in itself. Much easier to avoid it. But it does not mean it is a samaya violation to have sex. If it is done in the traditiinal way you will have s...

Re: Vata pacifying diet while practicing Pranayama?

Tantrics would eat meat amd drink beer for this. But for ayurvedic style you cam go all satvic but you may want to try and balance your koshas and see how you feel. Oily and sweet is not actually healthy for everyone.
