Re: Simplest Most Effective Most Efficient Deity Yoga to Purify Negative Karma

Mahamudra is the most effective, as it accomplishes all the paths at once. Mahamudra is not a deity practice tho.

Re: Extent and Range of Notions of Secrecy

I guess, it is also because Tantra is kind of practice of a secret society with ita own rules and conduct. Tantra is a whole different culture and it doesn't necessarily adapt to the main culture where it is practiced.

Re: Question for those who carry a mala in daily life

The 'really?' was in response to the idea that someone felt that they would go mad if they did not have their mala upon their person. Really? I get it. Mala starts to feel like your shadow if you use it long enough. I guess it's almost like you would stop wearing your underwear suddenly. I think it...

Re: Question for those who carry a mala in daily life

When I stopped wearing my mala, it felt like I was going mad and that I has removed one of my limbs.

I don't get why people won't wear them. All the blessings of your sadhana carry around within your mala.

Re: DKR - How Will You See the Guru?

Important point: how you see your guru affects on what kind of blessings you can extract from her. If you see her as 1st level Bodhisattva, you get the blessings of 1st level Bodhisattva. If you see him as a Samanthanbhadra, you get the blessinga of Samanthabhadra. If you see him as an ordinary bein...

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...

If you have received Mahamudra transmission that is the most profound way, as it is the practice that will accomplish all the other practices at once.

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....
