Re: Not just for white folks

In many parts of Asia, Buddhism is losing influence, mainly to Christianity; perhaps it will create an equilibrium.

Re: termas found outside of asia?

Also, both of these centers never mention his full name on the internet bc of political problems. They put strange punctuation in his name to throw off search engines from the ____ gov. I think best to not type his full name on here Mods or Lama Pema maybe you could edit post to conceal APR’s name....

So you stand by a duality between profane and sacred...? Material and non-material.....?
THAT is a very good question ! ( :bow: )

I stand by a duality between the profane view and the sacred view, the materialist view and the non-materialist view.

No it is not. The findings of quantum mechanics for example, do not equate to any information that can be observed by our sensory apparatus or to our logic or cognitive processes.
Quantum physic is still physic.

Re: New Topic

No, it really doesn’t. There is a good deal of difference between science per se, and scientism as Tobes has highlighted. I don't know if Tobes has a scientific background but there are only differences of degree between science and scientism, not of nature. All the "profane" science that has devel...

Re: New Topic

Even people who are not ready to leave samsara benefit from exposure to the Dharma. Reifying the difference between "real" practitioners and not should only be for learning purposes, spend too much time on it and we become just as hypocritical. I don't know well the situation in the US, but in Euro...

Re: New Topic

As far as how to approach others though, my experience (mainly with doing Prison Dharma work) is that the more you can simply be yourself, not pressure people, and help them develop their path in the Dharma with the greatest respect to their personal autonomy is actually being of service to them, a...

It's not to say that Buddhism is bad. It's about to sweep first in front of our door, without invocates far-right polemists, either Ibn Warraq or Trimondi.

Re: Kalachakra War Prophecy

If we are really honest, which is quite hard, we can say also the same with buddhism, particularly tibetan buddhism. All islamic invaders and even ISIS are small players in comparaison with the Mongols. Chinggis Khan is seen as a dharmapala (emanation of Vajrapani). He killed 40 million people. We f...

Re: Cost of retreats USA vs. EUR

Most of all there are cultural différences, US is greedy. :smile:
In Europe, only very few people expects to earn a living with "religious" activities. Their sources of incomes are elsewhere.

Re: When the villagers gave up hunting...

There are numerous stories in namthars where hunting is portrayed as somewhat recreational. For example, in Brilliant Moon, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche's father was told off for hunting even though his family was rich. Hunting for survival in Tibet is something the poorest of the poor do, or something ...
