Re: Bhutanese Buddhism ans teachers

Gyaltsen Rinpoche, who is a holder of Shakya Shri´s lineage, has a group of very dedicated yogis, who practice in Milarepa´s style in the mountains of Bhutan and others who are in retreat centers. Rinpoche also initiated a project of ngagdra for Kagyu practitioners focusing on Hevajra tantra - his e...

Actually it is Brahmanarupa Mahakala.

The first one appears to be Luipa, though usually Luipa is depicted with fish entrails in his left hand, sometimes he is depicted with kapala.

Re: The White-Robed, Dreadlocked Community

Interesting and informative arcticle. Though I am not sure about the following interpretation: The perspective of the tantras is clear: a senior ngakpa or tantrika is superior to a gelong (vow-holding monastic). The Aruli tantra states: “Obtaining the vase empowerment is (the level of) a gennyen (la...

Re: rechung nyengyu

That is why in my opinion, secret mantra should not be taught to lay people and monastics, but almost exclusively to yogis - ngagpas, repas, naljorpas and their female counterparts. Lay people have no time to practice it properly, monastic sangha has restrictions that do not allow them to practice ...

Re: This is the discourse on mundane pleasure - Drukpa Kunley Rinpoche

Given that I don't read Tibetan and have to rely on translations, the only English language book I have come across is Dowman's "The Divine Madman - The Sublime Life and Songs of Drukpa Kunley". I don't know how bad the translations are since I cannot read the original. Personally, I like...

Re: This is the discourse on mundane pleasure - Drukpa Kunley Rinpoche

That translation by Keith Dowman is at places quite inaccurate. As for the teachings of Drugpa Kunleg, there are some texts on tbrc. There is a little collection made by some Bhutanese scholar, whose identity I forgot, called The Dharma collection of Great Cock. It contains among other things a long...

Re: Kālacakra Vajrayoga & Dzogchen comparison

How much does the approach of Dzogchen/Atiyoga and the Vajrayogas of the Kalacakra completion stage (primarily held by the Jonang Zhentong tradition) differ from one another? As a side note on this, the Kalachakra teaching which is available here in human dimension is limited, it is a concise versi...

Re: what is Russia up to?

Russia needs Turkey on it's side to be able to play out it's strategy in Syria. I am not saying that they don´t need them, but I think Putin is playing Erdogan like a fiddle and once he does not need Turkey, for any purpose, he will dump them. Turkey does not fit too much into his idea of Caucasus,...

Re: Trump is a Russian Puppet hahahahaha

I wonder what would happen if those Russian tapes got out to the public. Would Republicans impeach Trump? I doubt it.

But if there were a tape of him with Ivanka, that would be some tough sh*t. Which honestly is not too unlikely.

At Kyabje Dorje Chang Bokar Rinpoche's monastery in Mirik, Darjeeling district, India, one of the main rupas is a life-size rupa of Maitripa. It's blue.

Re: Life history of Maitripa ?

It is a pity how much Maitripa was pushed to the side in Kagyu lineage, when he was in fact the root guru of Marpa. There is not even any extensive namthar and I have not come across any praise, prayer or guruyoga. It is such a shame. Also quite strange given how much Kagyupas owe him and the fact t...
