Re: Selling the dharma

84,000 pays $250 per folio side. People pay, are getting paid, etc. Nothing is free. In this case, since the main donor for this project is a millionaire several times over, it is no sweat of his or her back since most of those millions were donations anyway, to begin with. Someone always pays. The...

Re: Decreased interest in Tantric practice

It's not daily, it's a weekly commitment, and I usually do it with a group. Anyway, the conflict I'm finding is that my Vajra brothers and sisters with whom I regularly interact in meatspace are not Dzogchenpa for the most part, and tend to be much more excited about and focused on initiations etc....

Re: in search of a ethical way to deal with spiders

Black widows are my main fear. They probably won't be a problem now that i am in this new apartment and dont have to deal with a wood pile though. I have many black widows where I live.They nest in the underside of the outside chairs.They are very shy and not aggressive .They do not seem to like it...

Hopefully Grig sees this question, but is there something we can change in the policy to make these positions less stressful for the people who take them on? He has one of the most stressful jobs I can think of offline. Maybe he is stressed from modding DW though,if you consider that he has to deal...

Re: DW 10 y.o. video msg from me (DNS)

A good stat for seeing the success of a forum is Active topics. However, that is typically measured over the last 7 days, so doesn't give a long-term picture. I've seen active topics over the last 7 days fluctuate from a low of around 40 to a high of 120+ here at this forum and others. Total member...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Yeah I did three webcast retreats where he gave a ton of lungs for many things, but I'm not certain whether I got transmission of a practice or just the mantra. One example is Green Tara.Rinpoche would give the lung for the Main mantra's and for the 21 Tara's so you could practice the Green Tara te...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Rinpoche always emphazised quality to be more much more important than quantity, maybe that's why he asked so few time of application (few counts), however, this tells me that it depends more on each one's capacity that in a predeterminated amount of time or repetitions. he said like if one is in p...
