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 ...

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...

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...

Re: What it means to be a ngakpa

When you just recieved an empowerment, you are not yet a real ngagpa, you are what they call ngagchung - "a small ngagpa" in other words, ngagpa in training. Then you should as a minimum complete a ngondro, and approach and accomplishment rectitations of sadhanas of the three roots. If you can then ...
