Re: Tibetan Monks Debate

You can delete my account after this please. I like Amitabha and Chenrezig but anyways--from my understanding from listening to the Dalai Lama is that Mahakala and other wisdom protectors can help you in the bardo. If you rely upon and are attached to gyalpos or tsen spirits they really can't help y...

Re: Student Teacher Relationship in Modern Age

Regarding Judeo-Christian thinking--I grew up in the Worldwide Church of G-d (feel sorry for Bobby Fischer) and that thinking is hard to overcome especially if you were indoctrinated while young. (Cults never was a coyote but read some.) His Holiness, Garchen Rinpoche, FPMT and Jewel Heart seem to b...

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. Not to engage in dharma debate but isn't this a tirthika view? **Trying to locate a center to take my son to and learn. More important for him ...

Re: Female Dalai Lama must be pretty

You see, the way you presented it, was as if HHDL suddenly said to someone that their wife was ugly. This looks terrible without context, but here is the context, which you did not originally provide: He followed that by saying that “long-lasting marriages are not based on external beauty, but on i...

Re: Female Dalai Lama must be pretty

He offered that he was not against divorce, except when children were involved. He followed that by saying that “long-lasting marriages are not based on external beauty, but on internal beauty.” He poked fun at himself with an anecdote about the time he told a friend that his wife “wasn’t very attr...
