It is hard to judge, when one is not nearby.
The way you explain it sounds about right.

Don't worry too much!

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...

In a post-ngöndro nyingma-saddhana, you usually do all nine yanas combined.

Re: Ways to Identify Naga Incense

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.

You are free. You can do whatever you want. Everyone else does. It's up to students to decide who is a qualified teacher. It is also up to teachers to decide who is a qualified student.

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. Your primordially pure state is the nature of all dharmas. The Kunjed Gyalpo says:" I am the root of...

It was great to see Uruguay being successful again this year after so long out of the spotlight. But the other countries do need to raise their game.
Uruguay finished 4th in 2010 world cup, too.

Dharma sees our human bodies as wish fulfilling jewels.
Just to add: This is only true for Mahayana and Vajrayana. In Hinayana, the Body is also seen as dirty. There are even practices around this theme.

Re: Football World Cup.

So what are your thoughts about today's final?

I guess France will win, because their style fits really well against the way Croatia is playing.

Re: Football World Cup.

I think we need some change on the side of players. Germany has many players that won more or less everything there is (Özil, Müller, Hummels, Khedira, Kroos, Neuer...). They are just not that hungry any more (which I can totally understand). So if Löw and Bierhoff (who plays an important role, too)...

Re: Football World Cup.

I think you need to look at your World Cup history again. Eight Nations have won the World Cup and England is among them. Once, yes. Uruguay has won it more. (Actually Uruguay was a serious team up to the 70s - it was good to see them do well this time.) The problem with England is their almost unl...

Re: Enlightenment

Inner peace is nice, but not sufficient.
Buddhism sounds more like a religion than a path.

The path is to realise wisdom and compassion.
