Re: Shar Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö

Reading the OP more carefully definitely raises some red flags. If one wants to know what has really corrupted the Vajrayana in the west - often discussed on this forum - it's this kind of stuff. I don't take kindly to the great legacy of Kongtrol, Khyentse Wangpo etc, being deployed to serve a dec...

Re: Dzogchen and Zen on enlightenment and post-enlightenment

Vajrayana is the only path to Buddhahood. Even Arya bodhisattvas who traverse the ten bhumis by way of six perfections eventually are initiated by Vajradhara. Maybe zen don’t want to accept that, but there are sutras that allude to this point of bodhisattvas being blessed with light etc. Zen path wo...

Re: Vajrasattva meditation & disturbing emotions

Hi. I'm just looking for some advice. I am more than halfway through my Vajrasattva practice (as part of my Ngondro practice) and I find that I'm struggling with what appears to be an increase in disturbing emotions, anger in particular. Is this a normal occurrence during the Vajrasattva purificati...

Re: Dzogchen and Zen on enlightenment and post-enlightenment

No one can really answer all these questions involving comparisons between Dzogchen and Zen. There is no master of both who can give a meaningful answer. Not true. There is a very big difference. Zen of today’s ilk has no basis by which to realize the 3 kayas. It is basically a sutra level approach...

Re: You will be tame!

Be great to focus on those details instead of silly apologies for heretic dharma. According to you, anything that does not coincide with your view is heretic dharma. That is a serious degree of self-aggrandisement happening there. And, no, I did not ask you to be my teacher. I was kidding. No heret...

Re: You will be tame!

I don’t think that. Just want to highlight it’s rather subversive character. And of Course it’s not easy to detect self deception. That’s what tantras are for.

Re: Swat Valley/Oddiyana

Now you’re talking some sense. I like the idea, but unless the dakini shows up in the form of an appropriately timed plane ticket, it won’t happen any time soon. And anyway I’m not sure that’s the message exactly. Well I’m reading that the Pakistan military has seized control from taliban and has e...

Re: You will be tame!

Tantra is a reprogramming methodology. One has to recognize language and customs are programmed. And with the internet, it is revived up in power over minds. Politically correct language coercion is exactly the thing putting minds under control. Losing control a little might help someone notice thi...

Re: Swat Valley/Oddiyana

Ok. Here’s the deal. Maybe. It is, like Jalandhara, a very spiritual historically important area. The whole hidden pure land is a path thing. Follow your heart. Maybe the dakini is calling you. Maybe you go there to get beheaded. Maybe both. Maybe nothing happens and you eat goat curry.

Re: Gaden Mahamudra

To introduce you. There’s still the path. In Dakpo... one has to be in no meditation 24/7 no breaks, even for dreams. Father tantras and “nondual” make things a bit more clear about the result. The Mirror divination analogy.
