Re: Hot Sauces

They are not hot, but I love chili guajillo. I made a cooked salsa yesterday with tomatoes, dried chili guajillo, dried chili de arbol (hot), garlic, onion, cumin, salt & black pepper.

Re: Hot Sauces

The best hot sauces are home-made, but for store bought, I like yucateca green sauce, though they have a red XXX Mayan sauce that is really hot. I also like sirachi sauce on asian food and Valentino on my Mexican snacks. For sliced jicama with lime I like ground chili pequin.

Re: What are the Tibetan "Fearful Dharma Protectors"?

Yamantaka means "destroyer of Yama." Wrathfull deities are not necessarily angry; they represent movement and action. Dharma protectors also often take on the appearance of the specific beings that they tame, so although they may look "evil," this is just appearance .

Re: How damaging was the Cultural Revolution for Buddhism and Taoism?

It was devastating in Cambodia where monks were forced to flee or disrobe.

Re: Questioning My Compatibility With Theravada Buddhism

I came from a Theravada background but found that Tibetan Buddhism (particularly Dzogchen) was more suitable for me. I particularly enjoy the opportunity to participate by webcast in my community, since I live far from sangha.

Tsogyelgar Upper Shrine Room Burned to the Ground

This Vajrayana temple was part of White Lotus Farms. No one was injured, but many precious murals and other items were lost. Fire fighters helped recover a statue of Guru Rinpoche from the ashes. https://www.mlive.com/news/2019/04/buddha-statue-pulled-from-ashes-of-burned-barn-at-white-lotus-farms.h...

Re: Differences between sects

Some of the main differences in the explanations that the four traditions give of the teachings come from their ways of defining and using technical terms, as well as from their presenting the Dharma from different points of view. For instance, the pair “permanent/impermanent” can mean either stati...

Re: Notre Dame Paris on fire

A loss for the Church, especially if the relics in the spire were lost, a loss for Paris, and a historical loss for the world, of this 800+ year old cathedral.

Aspiration developed and expressed by prayers such as Calling the Guru from Afar are quite helpful. Once you have found a possible guru, examine him or her, as well as yourself.

Re: Finding Your Guru

When investigating a teacher it is important to know who his teachers are and who authorized him to teach. In addition, it is important for said teacher to be connected to an authentic lineage.

Not as black as I thought it would be.
The bright ring is matter turned into plasma due to extreme velocity before entering the black hole. It is almost exactly as predicted. Amazing!

Functionally, how can one even have membership in the DC if they lack funds?
