Re: Wylie transliteration for term

I think that རྴ and that are the same syllable, and I think the Wylie is rSha, my Wylie isn't very good though so I could be wrong.

Poor leopard...
Supposedly they have no plans to track down and kill the leopard, which is surprising but good
I was thinking more about the negative consequences accrued from killing a member of the ordained Sangha.
Ah yes I hadn't thought of that

Reciting Vajrasattva long mantra 21 times a day prevents degeneration.
Does reciting Vajrasattva short mantra 108 times a day prevent degeneration as well?

Re: Days where karma is multiplied

According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche it comes from a Vinaya text called Treasure of Quotations and Logic, but I've never looked for a translation of this text so I can't provide more information than that.

Re: Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva Pūrvapraṇidhāna Sūtra

I have not heard of Tibetan monks or followers of Tibetan Buddhism talk about Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva,the Bodhisatva that I focus alot on now.Do they believe in Him? Tibetan Buddhists do have some Ksitigarbha practices, these tend to be for protection from disasters, although there are lots of deit...

Re: 5 precepts

I'm pretty sure he means as in practicing extreme forms of Jainism/Hinduism, especially with starving yourself of everything to prevent killing anything(or at least how Jains do it including with plants), asceticism against sexual thoughts and wants(all violations either way), and so forth. Not jus...

Re: 5 precepts

Any my own opinions is that the "Killing" precept is the most dangerous and must be tread with the most caution. Why do you think this? And the history of Shakyamuni Buddah himself proves that "severe asceticism is no good either (it almost lead him to his own death!), so taking the precepts too st...

Re: Children and the 5 Elements

I agree. I always feel better when I’m outdoors in nature compared to in a city. I’m lucky that my degree, geology, has a large fieldwork component so I get to spend lots of time in nature. In September I was up on the Isle of Skye and loved everyday outside, even in sideways rain, in fact I found b...

Re: How to join a buddhist monastery?

It depends on your cultural roots and on the conditions of your life. If you are from a poor country, then you don't have a problem at all. I wouldn’t be certain about that, everyone is afflicted by desire and the eight worldly concerns. Another point about living in India or Nepal, have you looked...

Hello I'm not a kagyu practicioner but I am going to ordain in the gelug tradition.

Re: Nyingma in London

Best Lama in London is Lelung Rinpoche. He is a high Nyingma Tulku. Lelung Rinpoche is a gelug tulku although he holds the 5th Dalai Lama's visionary teachings among other Nyingma teachings. Yes, he studied in Drepung, I thought he is Gelug but maybe a tulku of a Nyingma master. It seems Lelung Shy...
