Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

This joyful event will take place in the course of two days, at the end of which the participants will have received the transmission and in all respects will be practitioners of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. This sounds a bit crazy. You cannot be a pracitioner (meaning student) of some master you have ne...

I think activation of the own speech chakra is better
- and if this is humming or murmuring only
(rather than listening)

helpful for beings in the bardo states though
since the listening capacity is the last sense to fade
(not sure about the sense order when coming to existence)

Hey, parents... who's doing their best to raise Buddhists? If that doesn't happen, then Buddhism will never go native.

Re: Reginal Ray / Dharma Ocean, open letter about abuse

I think it is nearly impossible to judge what was happening when you were not part of it or at least witnessing. The letter won't hold for a court trial (at least in Germany) for absue- but it gives a hint to a certain closed-shop mentality that seems rather strange. I mean, why are people lost in t...

Re: Reginal Ray / Dharma Ocean, open letter about abuse

In today’s environment one would be smart to make such changes regardless of the veracity of the claims. Not to say I think there’s no truth to them, I’m just not sure ‘my teacher acted like asshole’ rises to the level of ‘abuse’, especially not on the level of the Rigpa or Shambhala stuff. Sure. I...

Re: Reginal Ray / Dharma Ocean, open letter about abuse

After reading the letter, the posting on the land use issue, and the reddit thread comments it’s unclear to me what exactly could be investigated here and what the point of that investigation would be. The only allegation that sounds like actual misconduct is building outside the specs of the land ...

Reginal Ray / Dharma Ocean, open letter about abuse

Eight students of Reginald Ray, inspired by the revelations of abuse in Rigpa in the letter written by eight Rigpa students and in Shamabala by Buddhist Project Sunshine, have written an open letter revealing Reginald Ray’s abuse of students and the cult dynamics in his organisation, Dharma Ocean. h...

It is hard to judge, when one is not nearby.

Re: Dalai Lama Says A Female Successor Must Be Attractive...

I think HH is about right. You can talk about it however and howmuch you want, but in the end, being an attractive female would be much better on the relative level for a bodhisattva with the wide scope that a Dalai Lama has. It is really a bit absurd: the US seems to be a place where outer apperean...

I'd recommend to use guggul (Commiphora wightii) on charcoal, like one does when doing sang, instead of using incense.

Re: What a buddhist tradition did you choose and why?

First, I practiced in the Karma-Kagyü-Tradition. After 2 and half years I switched to the Nyingma-Tradition. Why I did this is not a story for the internet, but it was not because there is something wrong with the Kagyü-Tradition.

It seems the fact that Bosnia, Herzegovina and Albania are Muslim majority European nations, has bypassed all the ubermensch in this thread calling for European purity.
And?

The Dalai Lama spoke about refugees coming to Europe, not about the native population of two relativly small countries.

Re: Realization

Impermenance is the very nature of all phenomena. Of course this does not change when we are in rigpa. Quite the opposite (as Magnus already said). Yeah, not quite. In dzogchen is totally different.
