Re: Gyalpo spirits

Gyalpo are a class of devas who live in the Cātummahārājika-world (lowest deva world). Besides the Four Great Kings (Cattāro Mahārājāno) and their followers (Dhatarattha: king of Gandhabba of the East, Virūlhaka: king of Kumbhanda of the South, Virūpakkha: king of Nāga of the West, and Vessarana: ki...

Re: Shingon Initiation - Japan

In general, Shingon is not as accessible to Westerners as Tibetan Buddhism is. To fully train in the Shingon school, one would have to at the minimum become fluent in Japanese and spend years closely training under the guidance of a Shingon priest who holds the teaching lineage that has been passed...

Re: Wherever a Buddha appears - the world is purified

The first precepts is: Pāṇātipātā veramaṇī sikkhāpadaṃ samādiyāmi Panatipata is derived from the word ‘pana’ and ‘atipata’. ‘Pana’ means ‘being or life’ and ‘atipata’ means ‘end rapidly’.

Re: Lots of questions about Dharmapalas & Yidams

If you truly live an ethical and moral life, no dharmapala or yidam will ever hurt you. the user kim katami aka pema "rinpoche" is a self-proclaimed teacher and disseminates false teachings of buddha-dharma. so it is perfectly "normal" for him to be attacked by "dharmapalas". https://dharmawheel.net...
