Re: What are the Undeniables of Dzogchen Practice?

It cannot be discussed in an open forum. Well for one, you’ve mentioned rebirth in a Pure Land just from this direct perception. Not discussable? It’s better not to discuss these things in detail. They won’t have faith in them, and they will slander the Dharma in their ignorance. They? Lol.

Re: Recovering from Trauma

Please pray for me. I recently broke after I discovered how much abuse I have normalized and how much trauma I have accumulated. I'm not going to trash my family and extended family here, but basically I've begun cutting everyone out of my life and/or handing out ultimatums. It feels like I've woke...

Re: Does Mahayana lose its entire validity...

As Shantideva said: What they (pre-modern Mahayana apologetics) do not and cannot address is the historical argument. Apparently the academic view is not contested regarding Mahayana scriptures being later works, consequently it is currently not debated that the Nikayas and Agamas represent the old...

No, because the same argument could be made for the Pali canon, and bodhicitta is obviously without flaw.
This is right.

Re: Non-Duality in Dzogchen vs Advaita Vedanta

Oh heel no they don’t. Atiyoga is impossible to glimpse by accident. Who said anything about accidents or chance? There is this thing called past karma/accumulations. On the other hand: What do you think the chances are of having a truly "mystical experience" if you try to have one? There is only o...

Re: Non-Duality in Dzogchen vs Advaita Vedanta

Most who have practiced both paths in a serious manner state that in addition to being conceptually different, they are also experientially different. Of course they would. They are, in both instances, judging a non-conceptual experience via their currently existing karmic view, after all. No, I am...

For a quarter-century (!) I and one other person have periodically discussed these or similar questions with one of the world's leading Vedanta scholars, Ira Schepetin . At the end of the day, I can only concur with Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche and certain other Dzogchen masters before him, that what we c...

Re: How does the Buddha eat?

I don’t have children either but had siblings with numerous children that I co-parented to some extent. Children are highly impressionable and eager to please their role models. I would suggest being good at practicing dharma and just lead by example. They can’t help but be influenced by this. At th...

Re: Non-Duality in Dzogchen vs Advaita Vedanta

Do yourselves a favor and forget about Advaita if you want to master Ati. The Ati universe is vast. Advaita is a kindergarten classroom. Don’t take this the wrong way. The sophistication levels just don’t compare at all. If Advaita is your puppy and I just kicked your puppy, hey, sorry, but you are ...
