Re: Dudjom Sangyum in Thukdam

Thank you for posting all these precious details. New York City is truly a Dakini Land!

Perhaps I missed it, yet I wonder how long Sangyum remained in thukdam?

And, please do keep us posted on her rebirth, if you have news.

E ma ho.

Maybay, can you say more about your sense of the guru-disciple relationship being an institution? I'd like to hear more about what you mean. Yes of course. The guru-disciple relationship is a very special relationship. All guru-disciple relationships are lineages that originate from the primordial ...

Re: Dharma Decline

Go forth for the good of the many, for the happiness of the many, out of compassion for the world, for the welfare, the good and the happiness of gods and men. Let no two of you go in the same direction. Teach the Dharma which is beautiful in the beginning, beautiful in the middle and beautiful at ...

Re: Which Buddhist tradition has treated women the best?

and where we are right now is: if you are born in a woman's body you have a couple of thousands of years of cultural patriarchy and misogyny to deal with in Buddhism. That's just the way it is; but the good new is with education and free dissemination of the Dharma via the internet, we don't have t...

For the Wanderers: Mingyur Rinpoche's Wanderings

I realize that this is already being discussed in the Kagyu boards, yet I believe that it has relevance for the Chod practitioners as well. Here is an example of a great yogi wandering for four years; truly an advanced practice. http://www.dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=21163 May all beings be...

Are you traveling by air? Domestically, internationally? Are you US based?

If by air, carry-on only or with checked bags?
