Re: Alan Wallace: Dzogchen, COVID-19 & the prophecy received by Dudjom Lingpa

Buddhism is the only religion I ever had, thanks to my parents. I don't see anyone practice even shamata in monotheistic religions so you would have to invent something new even on that level. /magnus You don't see because you choose not to see. Christianity has shamatha, mantra recitation as well ...

Re: Alzheimer's Disease

My mother was here now 100% on an emotional level. And she was conscious about social interactions. What was damaged was her cognitive thinking. Skills, comprehending and analyzsing were damaged. She never knew how old she was and what was this house she was living in, but she knew very well if a p...

Re: Alzheimer's Disease

Thank you very much for your answer. You really described the ambiguity of Alzheimer. My step-grandmother had Alzheimer and my wife and me visted her often. She died over 5 years ago but I still have not really gotten what Alzheimer is. Although I am sure that the brain is not the conciousness, Alzh...

Re: First rate translators in non-English European languages

To the OP: Lama Henrik Havlat did a few very good translations together with his then consort Lama Waltraud. They translated directly from tibetan into german. They translated only Karma Kamtsang Texts, as far as I know. Usually I read the english first-hand translations from the original texts, but...

Alzheimer's Disease

Dear community, what is the view of Alzheimer's Disease regarding Sutra (and maybe also Tibetan Medicin)? My understanding is that the brain is damaged and so the skandha of consciosness (विज्ञान vijñāna) is in a way out of order. What are the karmic causes of this damage and how does it affect the ...

Re: PTSD and Mahayana Buddhism

Things or material objects have different qualities, a bag of garbage is different from another bag of garbage that holds inside a person's wristwatch that she had accidentally put there through her absent-mindedness. Later the person realised what had happened and ran frantically searching through...

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)

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

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.

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.

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: 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.
