Can’t source it, but I believe they’re handing out condoms on Bhutanese monasteries to stop the spread of STDs. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/on-faith/bhutan-seeks-to-curb-sexual-diseases-among-buddhist-monks/2013/03/28/260653f4-97ec-11e2-b5b4-b63027b499de_story.html?utm_term=.a0c16632abd5

Re: The DJKR Topic

This just isn't personal, it's about what he wrote, not who he is. I agree Malcom and that's exactly what troubles me the most about his recent post: neither Lama Tsultrim Allione nor Loppon Yudron Wangmo(I'm assuming in Yudron la's case, I didn't see her original remark I don't think but I know he...

Re: The DJKR Topic

Right, because after all Vajrayāna really is just all about clans, fealty, and tribes. :shrug: People tend to agree with what their root guru's stance is .. For example when you were strongly speaking years ago about Dzogchen (Images of a world with an ah on it) how you can be a dzogchenpa without ...

Smjc your very limited reply to my last post made no sense, and appeared to completely miss the points I made. Perhaps you can try reading it again.

Re: The DJKR Topic

Found this comment in the FB thread of the OP amusing Is this the buddhist equivalent of a Trump tweet? You know, a person in a position of high authority makes inappropriate comments, gets rightly criticised, can't rise above the criticism and has to respond with churlish posts that names those who...

Re: The DJKR Topic

I don't know where and what exactly people are saying who are screaming for his head, or at least his title has an authentic teacher. my own criticism is only that it was distasteful, more like the humour of a thirteen year old. And, obviously, not very clever. The question that might be meaningful...

Re: The DJKR Topic

Rather than satire, in the midst of fallout from the Sogyal, Norlha, and Weinstein scandals and the avalanche of #metoos all over social media and the press I'd prefer (admire even) a response from a male Lama—any Lama—more along these lines: Men can start putting in some of the work women have long...

Re: Faults of the teacher - what does and what doesn't contaminate the transmission?

Inspired by the discussion in this thread: Nobody's perfect. Suppose you're testing a teacher and notice certain faults in his behaviour. Which kinds of faults of a teacher are harmless and which are actually "contaminating" the transmissions he could possibly give, so that it is not advisable to t...

Re: Soul fragmentation and defragmentation as Buddism teaching?

With respect to the idea of an awakened master transferring their "mind" (thugs) to a disciple, this is a form of blessing. It does not mean that now the student has all the teachers thoughts and knowledge, memories, experiences, and so on. Well.. a funny claim of that happened here and is an obvio...
