Re: Drikung Kagyu Ngondro

How do I acquire the old one, The blazing Splendor? I would like to read them both to see which one I would like to do. Thanks You need a lung for both of them. You can buy Blazing Splendor either in Garchen buddhist intitute, or in some of the centers near you. The Blazing Splendor seems to be a M...

Re: British Museum to Return “Stunning” Gandharan Buddhist Artifacts to Afghanistan

We seem to mistake civilisation for prosperity and technological advancement.

Don't touch my Boris Buffable (or whatever) Johnson. He is a beacon of civilisation. Why else would his hair have such a funny colour?

Re: British Museum to Return “Stunning” Gandharan Buddhist Artifacts to Afghanistan

Greg is correct tho. Many problems in Africa and the Middle East were created by colonial powers playing "god" with borders and other stuff in the old days and US, the glorious empire, playing for oil. Ofcourse the locals have some of the blame too, but its hard to say what could have been. Concerni...

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think that it’s good for one’s own practice to tell others what one’s personal main practice is.
Quite frankly nowadays it is even better not to mention that you practice at all. :lol:

Re: Antifa at it again

I am closing this thread as it has spiraled out of control and no sort of concensus would most probably be reached. If anyone has anything to add pm me and we will see. It shan't be reopened, however.

Re: Antifa at it again

Further, Ananda, if living beings in the six paths of any mundane world had no thoughts of killing, they would not have to follow a continual succession of births and deaths. Your basic purpose in cultivating samadhi is to transcend the wearisome defilements. But if you do not renounce your thought...

Re: Antifa at it again

Being rude and sarcastic is not at all in accord with Buddha's teaching. In any case, the point was that violence does not ever solve violence. Peace and non-violence are able to overcome violence. Yes, but even Garchen Rinpoche joined the rebell army when the Chinese came in. I mean when there is ...

Re: Ksitigarbha resources

Thank you guys! I completely forgot about FPMT and took a look at the Tashi Gyepa, quite interesting. So, now more questions, does anybody know about any Ksitigarbha practice from the Drikung Kagyu tradition?

Ksitigarbha resources

Hey, I am quite interested in the Ksitigarbha bodhisattva in Tibetan buddhism. I know he is very popular in China and Japan (the Jizó statues are so cute), but what about Tibetan vajrayana? Are there any transmissions? Sadhanas? Are there any dharanis, or sutras with dharanis? Is he part of some cyc...
