Never seen those particular images before :shrug:
I'm surprised..there are often printed for free distribution. Maybe now that you've seen them here you will notice.

Re: The origin of the most commonly distributed images

I'm sure most members of this forum have seen these two images before. They are the most widely distributed images.
They both look like they are photos of statues. I have asked many people if anyone knew where the original statues are and no one knows.
does anyone here on dharmawheel know?

Re: how much does chicago style change?

Responding to my own post here, but I was looking at a book published in 1958 and I found that the footnotes at the bottom of each page begin at the number 1. Instead of starting the footnotes numbers at 1 only at the beginning of a chapter as it seems people do now.

Re: Garchen Nyingtig Yabshi Germany 2018 Questions

I don't mean to sound dismissing, but when I hear someone tell me that the benefits of a given practice will be reaped during bardo - I am not interested at all. What help is this to me in this current form? Why should I care more about a bodyless form in the bardo realm who, according to Buddhist ...

Read more on Tibetan Buddhism. If you are really interested. You could even go to some teachings.
That doesn't even respond to the post at all.
Do you think that this response could be taken as disrespectful?

Re: Obstacles to Bodhicitta

I think that there may be a physical reason. A knot in a channel or something.

How is bodhicitta described in the texts? Does it have a somatic component?

They say that when we make vows there is a subtle substance created. That may have some relation to the discussion also

Re: Hell

Most people, as human beings, don't remember their previous lives. Is there any teaching based on meditative realization, or the experience of delogs, etc, that indicate whether beings in hell have any memory of their previous misdeeds or have any idea why they are where they are? Pretty sure hell ...
