Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

Clothes are certainly important in some context. The aura (electromagnetic field) has some colours. They reflect our energy. This is an « inner cloth ». This inner cloth is highly respected by beings of the invisible realm, while outer cloth (the one we wear) has a certain impact on people around an...

Re: How to avoid imagining the tantric world as inherently existing?

Tantra is huge, vast and subtle. To find your way, i suggest looking for a reliable teacher who can see where you are, what you need and offer proper guidance so you find your way home.

Who is a reliable guide ? That is another story. There must be one for you. Your heart knows.

Re: How exactly does karma "purification" work?

Karma means action. What you do have results. You are the whole of your thoughts from before. Everything is impermanent and subject to change. You may change your thoughts, your actions, your destiny. You can change all this. You can have another orientation. And you can transform what you are now (...

Re: Puja for lung disorder

Maybe the torma offering to the four elements may help.

Re: A few questions on forgiveness...

I would see forgiveness as an act of healing your heart. When you forgive, you allow your heart to heal. This is something good for you in the first place. Forgiveness does not mean you are going to do reconciliation. You can forgive someone and still refuse to see this person. Forgiveness does not ...

Re: Does the lung and wang empowerment of a deity and sadhana allow you to use other versions of the sadhana?

An empowerment help to access your wisdom mind and express it in the form of green tara. Empowerment is not about « autorisation ». It is about maturation. One essence, multiple ways to express it. Focus on the essence and you will become free. But by all means, do follow your Guru as he/she express...

Re: emptiness of everything (subject and object) is cure for everything?

Meditating on emptiness of things is a cure to many things. Why ? Because when you realise all is co-dependent and do not have an independent self, you realise also what you input with your mind on things is an hallucination. You have an idea of a flower which is not the flower. This idea and percep...
