Re: Guru Rinpoche song (English)

You should hear his Dharma song to a Lady Gaga tune. He's actually got a bunch. He typically trots one out at tshogs at Tara Mandala. Erik is extremely talented.

Re: Santa La Muerte

Tenma, Because you have mentioned suicidal thoughts, I strongly advise you to see your guidance counsellor at school ASAP. (I am surprised that no one else on this forum has made this suggestion.) As a retired doctor, this is not something to be taken lightly. I think you may need psychological coun...

Re: Santa La Muerte

Tenma, I've bit my tongue for a while now when reading your posts. Buddhadharma is not a fantasy game. Please either work directly under a Teacher or content yourself for the time being simply reading sutras. As stated above, you're gonna get hurt. Several others have already made this recommendatio...

Re: Bumpa

Besides including saffron and bum-dze, the activity vase needs to be consecrated before use. (Loppon/Malcolm alluded to this.) Please get the relevant liturgy and visualization from your Teacher. Generally, the activity vase can be refilled five times before needing to start over. Also Bum-dze 25 is...

Re: Lungta/Prayer Flags

Good advice, but please get the lung/oral transmission for sang and/or lung-ta. This is a vital part of making these practices work. Maybe not 100% indispensable, but vital none the less. The more you practice, the more you will understand this. It is not simply a conceptual thing but a meditative e...

Re: Mantra healing and protection?

Something else that might be germane to this thread: Lama Dawa, in His teaching of Dorje Gotrab, always emphasized Bodhisatvic motivation, i.e., doing the practice for others. Over many years I saw people come to the Dorje Gotrab retreats for self-healing. They typically came 1-2 times. Only one tha...

Re: Mantra healing and protection?

Lama Dawa had said for years that He would die when He was 64, that that was His karmically alotted life-span (tshe) for this life. When He got the diagnosis of stage IV colon cancer, He agreed to do the Dorje Gotrab long-life retreat to try to extend His life. However, He was not able to complete t...

Re: Can I use Rudraksha Mala to chant Avalokitesvara's Mantra or the Nilakantha Dharani?

"Forbid" -- No. Just means that you are not using the most skillful means according to Tibetan Buddhist teachings. There're lots and lots of teachings about malas: which ones are best for this or that, how many mantras this and that kind of mala multiplies. How to say mantras, how to count mantras, ...

Re: Harming spirits

Good answer, Magnus. But, if it's Naga sang , then only on Lu-theb days when the Nagas are amenable to offerings. Otherwise, it will actually create problems with the Nagas. If it's Riwo Sangchod or some other general sang-chod, then every day or whenever you want, most typically in the morning, and...
