Re: Khorwa Dongtruk in the Nyingma Kahma

This could mean many things. One thing is Khorwa Tongtrug as a specific form of red Avalokiteshvara, another thing is Khorwa Tongtrug as a term used in inner tantras. There is no practice of Khorwa Tongtrug in Nyingma Kama (Kama gyepa collection) - at least not in the one put together by Dudjom Rin...

Re: Mipham Rinpoche's termas

Mipham Rinpoche was not a terton, he was supposed to reveal termas but he refused to. He even wrote a text where he criticizes tertons of his time for wrting anything that comes to their mind and presenting that as a terma. He opined that old termas such as those of Guru Chowang and Nyangral Nyima O...

Re: Joint Statement of the Two Karmapas

I am very happy that this meeting occured. I hope that the first visible step forward would be to organize joint Karma Kagyu monlam presided by both Karmapas, instead of having two separate ones.

Re: Longde Protectors?

Also.....Ngondzog Gyalpo is used as Guru, is he also used as Yidam as well? Yes Ngondzog Gyalpo is a yidam connected to Longde practice. Longde is not something separate from Nyingma lineage, so same protectors as there are in Nyingma kama apply here - Mazadam sum, Maning, Legden etc. you can do an...

Re: What it means to be a ngakpa

But let me put it you this way. If some Sakyapa or Gelugpa came up to you and said that your practice was fraudulent because it had no lineage and was just a fantasy concocted by a Tibetan named Dili Terton, how would you feel? You would feel completely disrespected. Well, I am pointing out to you ...

Re: What it means to be a ngakpa

Aro Lingma may be a fantasy, or she may have been a historical person. Aro Lingma is a fantasy, there is no historical record of her, or at least Chogyam never bothered to present one - that is apart from his Fairy tails, which have no root in any Tibetan text. Your argument is pretty much same as ...

Re: What it means to be a ngakpa

He's been performing as Doc Togden for years now. I recall a facebook fan page for him maybe seven or eight years ago. What's the harm? He looks healthy and happy. There is no harm in playing music, the harm is that he is teaching a fake terma. Anyway, enough about this. Let's go :focus: How do you...

I have no idea, but searching for the name on Google, gives you this: From another Aro person:

Re: What it means to be a ngakpa

No he doesnt. The Doc Togden name is a joke which came about because he claimed (as a joke) to be the reincarnation of Doc Holliday of OK Corral fame. If we are going to become indignant about Dharma practitioners who are not to our taste lets at least not make stuff up. Well if it is a joke, then ...

And I have observed in the past that the Aro crew is most likely having more fun than we are... I don't know dude, but the idea of hanging out (literally) naked with the two people in the Aro photo, is hardly my idea of having fun. :tongue: Interesting side note - that clown Ngag'phang Rinpoche (as...
