Re: Drikung Kagyu

Another great deal w DK, and this helps w devotion, is there’s a separation of powers. There’s the Tulku branch who give Empowerments. This is HH and Garchen, basically. Only the really universally respected guys will be your samaya teacher. You won’t get close enough to have a bad connection. Then...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

I’m on board w notion DO, anatta, anicca and dukkha are one compound that can be dissolved instantly in the water of insight into DO, and that rebirth and its end is demonstrated fully therein.

Re: Drikung Kagyu

There are some prayers that are fundamental to Mahayana career: The seven branch prayer is one A confession. A dedication. Birth among sentient beings as a Buddha comes from aspiration prayers. So of course, relative and ultimate bodhichitta. Here’s a perspective from DK I really appreciate. It’s ve...

Re: Drikung Kagyu

Hello All, Is there a particular characteristic for the Drikung Kagyu Lamas and education? Hi Javier, I am not 100% sure what you are asking... but I'll give it a shot. Speaking with Drupon Thinley Ningpo Rinpoche this summer, he told me that currently at Jangchubling (the main seat of Drikung Kagy...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

Now you are just being a jerk, so I will end the conversation here. I really don't have an answer for you. The important assertion in this thread is that there is nothing in personal experience that definitively proves rebirth takes place, so we as Buddhists accept it on faith. I think that is an a...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

Because of a Anatta, there is birth. If there is atta, could be no becoming into something and no birth.

Re: What is reborn after death?

Please explain. I asked. When you say that the gandharva’s “physical body is principally the air element,” do you mean that literally or that it’s a gaseous body composed of what? And you answered, “Literally.” Now you say, I’ve taken your answer “too literally” and that it is “physical matter that...

Re: Is Anatta incompatible with rebirth?

So I've come across the work of J.G. Jennings and his book 'the vendantic Buddhism of the Buddha' who argues that the idea of rebirth is incompatible with Anatta (non-self) and that rebirth is an idea which was accomodated by Buddhists under pressure from Hinduism. It is the opposite actually, rebi...

Clearly this only happened because there weren’t enough yoga practitioners carrying guns. We need regulations requiring armed guards at all yoga studios. Lululemon needs to start selling holsters.
So sad I have to laugh, and cry.
If a silencer then yeah. Yoga is quiet.

Re: Crackdown on religion in China

Indian Punjab. The moment that state was declared Indian Army drove my dad’s fam into the Indian side. So your dad's family are from Pakistan, like my mum's family are from Turkey. Does that make your father Pakistani? So what are the defining characteristics for each category if birthplace is not ...

Re: Crackdown on religion in China

Not Pakistan. Punjab. Punjabis have various political attitudes. There is a distinct Punjabiness that all Punjabis relate to: Bhangra being one. Pakistani Punjab or Indian Punjab? Are all Punjabi into Bhangra? If a Punjabi is not into Bhangra, does that mean they are not a Punjabi? Indian Punjab. T...
