(Cults never was a coyote but read some.) His Holiness, Garchen Rinpoche, FPMT and Jewel Heart seem to b...

Re: Prayers for Kyron Horman

The Golden Light Sutra and think even a prayer by Geshe Sopa Rinpoche. Have to try one more time.

Thanks.

Re: Crazy peeps demanding your respect for nothin'

Seems like arguments, etc. between the different traditions were going on before Pabongka Rinpoche's time. Find common ground between different views and start there. But I wrote that because that is what I would do in that situation I think. No particular outcome was in mind just sit down and recit...

Re: Buddha Nature in Jodo Shinshu

The Tathagata pervades the countless worlds; it fills the hearts and minds of the ocean of all beings. Thus, plants, trees, and land all attain Buddhahood.

Re: Crazy peeps demanding your respect for nothin'

My answers are just ideas. Exploring an open heart.

I would carry a copy of Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand and just sit down and recite it.
