Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

Fictional characters are capable of many feats. I just saw a film recently where a raccoon flew a vessel through outer space. Though his attainments can be debated, there is evidence of the historical Jesus apart from the numerous Christian sources. There is actually no evidence for the historical ...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

ChNN must not have gotten the memo since, apparently, he considers Jesus to have been an enlightened being. Neither has Chhimed Rigdzin Rinpoche. He once said during a teaching that Jesus was a high Bodhisattva and if he'd enter the room, he, CRR, would immediately step down from his throne and pro...

Ignorance also has a cause in Dzogchen. There are no first causes. And even Samantabhadra possessed ignorance.
Loppon, what is the cause of ignorance, the first link of dependent origination?

How does Samantabhadra posses ignorance?

Re: Help me get over my jealousy

What helped me to get rid of a particular jealousy was loving kindness meditation. I also suggest meditation and cultivation of the four immeasurables.

Re: Trump's Movement to Unilateralism

Trump is a narcissist and everything has to be about him. Even when he was welcoming back the three released prisoners from North Korea at 3 A.M. he had to talk about the t.v. ratings. Its obvious that he doesn't know what he is doing. Like a child, he just says what he feels at the moment. He lacks...

I am told DMSO helps. It is available in the UK. My grandmother's friends swore by WD 40, lol. My father said Mexican snake oil and bee venom ointment helped.

Re: helicobacter pylori bacteria endemic in Tibetan monastery

The onion (allium) family in general and garlic in particular, have also been shown in clinical trials to reduce blood pressure. Garlic is also a powerful topical antiseptic. Its a pity that some cultures have a superstitious aversion to it. I thought it was just celibate monastics that avoid garli...
