Re: Gambling

Gambling is a pretty pointless waste of accumulated merit. I dunno mate, playing some small stakes tournaments, including free-rolls, allowed me financially to travel to attend retreats and teachings. Poker is primarily a skill game, I don't gamble on anything else, like sports betting or house cas...

Re: After Recognition of Nature of Mind...

Poker and futures. I play 5 card on the low end table. Hold em gets expensive quick. I love throwing bones though. I may need to supplicate Dorje Legpa... I understand. There is holdem with limits and no limit holdem. To play pro you need a stake and play the buy in you can afford to fold for hours...

Re: After Recognition of Nature of Mind...

What type of gambling do you do? Poker and futures. I play 5 card on the low end table. Hold em gets expensive quick. I love throwing bones though. I may need to supplicate Dorje Legpa...

Re: After Recognition of Nature of Mind...

Dorje Legpa is not a rgyal po, he is a ma sang, one of the seven ma sang brothers, not Mongolian at all. Isnt it true that some traditions regard Dorje legpa as and enlightened being, others and a worldly entity? Some Nyingma traditions hold DL to be an enlightened protector, no? I like Dorje Legpa...

Re: Shower of Blessings GY

Just to add, for interest, there is also a Guru Sadhana called 'Shower of Blessings' based around the Seven Line Supplication, which is a treasure of Kangyur Rinpoche, Longchen Yeshe Dorje, which is transmitted by his sons and by Mingyur Rinpoche, who was recognised as Kangyur Rinpoche's Tulku by Di...

Re: Text of Patrul Rinpoche "IKOIKO" translated by Khandro Rinpoche's Translation Group

Hi, I'm assuming this is the text you're after, Khandro Rinpoche, amongst others, is mentioned by the translator in the foot notes.

Re: Guru Rinpoche As...

What matters is one’s lineage and authority to study. Usually Drolod practitioners that I know approach this with a sense of awe and care. The consensus I’ve heard is Drolod will turn your life upside down. And it’s not for everyone. Folks should be very hesitant to take it on, unless one wants ass...

Re: TIPS? ADVICE? Leaving one sangha, looking for another, interested in Tergar/Mingyur

Also, one of the prerequisites for attending the 'path of liberation' is that you have received pointing out instructions from a 'qualified lineage holder'.... this isn't just Tulku Urgyen's sons...from speaking to both Mingyur and Tsoknyi Rinpoche, they both have a real respect and connection with...

Hi Arupajhana7, Nice to see you here. I have been a student of Mingyur Rinpoche for 16 years +, so pre, and post, Tergar being established. My own experience is that he is a authentic and awakened master, who is dedicated to introducing people to their natural state, and giving them a solid basis to...

In any case, we are seeing more and more people emboldened to come forward with unwelcome information despite the best efforts of many to silence them, so hopefully there will be greater opportunity for examination.

I honestly finda that hard to believe. This is bit too much. But still shows how f-ing messy the whole situation is.

Re: Is Monastic Ordination the Better Option for Single Dzogchen Practitioners?

It is interesting to know the monastic schedule for the practice. It seems there are no much differences on house-holders’ morning and evening schedule, except for the environment. According to some life-stories, mahasiddhas did not fit in monastic setting and that’s why they used to leave. Essenti...
