Yup, we should clean up our acts for sure (and our rivers, air, forests... etc etc)

Re: Practices for epidemics and pandemics

My Greek lama recommended I do some protector practices (torma, serkyem, etc) to pacify the Mamo. I informed him that I am happy to do so, but shouldn't somebody tell everybody else to stop irritating the Mamo? How are the mamos being irritated exactly? Malcolm said that they can be provocated thro...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Too bad there aren't enough tests to find out who is right. If they are right in 3 months this is over and containment is a waste of time I don’t buy it. At yesterday’s White House briefing they said New York had a 25% positive test return, but the national average is 8%. If there’s widespread infe...

Re: Why are some people so indecisive about which religion they believe in?

If a person finds something in Nichiren Buddhism that works and that they feel is true, why would they keep jumping in and out of other religions? They might find one aspect true but lack the understanding to trust/believe the rest. Some may take vipassana or mettá meditation, yet never take a refu...

You can find juniper and cedar incense sticks and cones online to make life simpler.

It is a good idea for (at least some of) the smoke to get outside.
Thanks Greg! Do you think juniper would be enough for the beginning, or is it important to have special mix?

Re: Small Sang Offering in a Flat

Should it be done with a completely open window or is partially okay? My main problem is whether it can be done indoors or the incense holder has to be outside. hi miroku, it can be done in a partially open space. just open window, that's fine since we use visualizations. an incense stick, i rememb...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Some positive news. In Czech Republic people are sewing their own face masks (since the government failed us) and we do wait in lines with one to two meters of space from each other. And we also have many volunteers helping elderly and sick to do their shopping and other things. I just got two face ...

Re: Corona conspiracy theories

Concerning the "creation" of the virus, from what my boyfriendd told me (he is about to start his PhD in microbiology) some of the professors at our university (who are studying the virus at the moment) are considering the possibility that the virus indeed might have been created by humans. Mostly d...

Re: Why?

Well, all those things did their best. Many people managed to flee, dharma was saved and that is a success. Also protectors, high lamas, and also people with common sense who did not have head up their butts knew what is brewing in the east. Take a look at Blazing Splendor, great biography, also the...

Participated in the empowerment online. Does anyone know if this is from the Peling Lama Norbu cycle? I didn't participate in this particular empowerment, but in general, the Guru Rinpoche practice most commonly used in Drikung (and included in the collection of 50 empowerments) is from Pema Lingpa...
