Re: DKR - How Will You See the Guru?

Well, when Guru Rinpoche said those words, he was talking about himself. So probably nobody on this website Yes, but many teachers put it as an example how practitioners should act. That’s my point. *Even* GR upholds this standard. So it’s completely pointless speculating about whether you or someo...

Re: DKR - How Will You See the Guru?

Yes, more or less 12 years of examination, then one can be sure to take the leap. A lot of people don’t want there to be any “leap” ever. I think that’s the mindset DKR is addressing. That's why we have stuff like Guru yoga. Not everyone sadly has superior faculties, like Kukkuripa had. For me find...

Okay, I’ll bite. What’s your idea?
You know, there's quite excellent description in mahayanauttaratantrashastra of all the bodhisattva levels etc.

Re: DKR - How Will You See the Guru?

If you have read sutras from all the three turning of the wheel, one should have quite clear conception what Buddha is and what Buddha is capable of. Because of our karmic obscurations, we cant see our guru like Ananda did, or Manjushri. Luckily, we have enough merit to have instructions to generate...

Re: Wrathful deities

If you want to progress fast, you need to find your perfect teacher with whom you have karmic connection and have unfailing devotion to whatever your root lama says. This is the essence of all the practices. One must be capable of understand what lama says then, and that's not granted by devotion. ...

Thank you all for your answers. R -- I hope this runs in your family as well. My mother's side of family are Sami people, hunters, and they've used this ability, to foresee, to track down animals, find good fishing spots, etc. And more recently, to see whether one should eat in a sketchy restaurant....

Re: Meat Eating Mantras

Chatral Rinpoche was hardcore about vegetarianism, and didn't tolerate any meat eating per se. Also, CR criticized a lot lamas who were meatians.

Re: Meat Eating Mantras

As I don't possess any magical powers, nor I am in any way realised, I find it much easier NOT to eat meat.

In addition, saving lives in my limited experience is much powerful practice than using so called meat-mantras.

Yes. And I've been taught that the Vajrayana Vows can be summarized as "Never criticize anything ." Then why you're criticizing that people are not not-criticizing? For vajrayana vows to be effective, they have to be transferred from pure awareness. Whether this has happened or not, we can only gue...

Possible, yes, but the problem with this is: how can you check a guru, if nobody says the truth about him? Isn't it funny that most of the times the people who are accusing the students of not having checked the guru are the same people who forbid them to say the truth? I would say, test him. Give ...
