There are many layers of understanding in sacred texts. The historical part is not of big importance. The deep meaning which enter in resonance with the core of your beings is what matter. Sacred text Is like a house and in the center of the house you find your own heart shining. Switch from the sur...

Re: Making connection with Sitatapatra

You may find an initiation of sitatapatra.

Trying to know more about her is already a kind of puja. Loving her who is one with your own nature. Draw, paint, dance in her honour. Think of her and feel your connection with her.

Re: Tonglen discursive problems

I offer you some ideas if that can help you. You do tong-len for you, not for others, even thought it may in a way be good for them. When you suffer, you resist against it. You want it to go. You want to remove it. Can you feel the tightness in that ? So what do you do ? You accept this suffering (b...

Re: Can one practice Zen AND Nichiren?

I would say practicing two ways is something, which can be beneficial, and mixing it is a whole different story, and much more delicate/dangerous. If you practice two traditions, you have to really dive deep into the essence of each one, so you can « build a bridge » between them. You have to go muc...

Re: How is it possible that Enlightened beings can have no siddhis but obscured beings can?

Some siddhis can be obtained by following certain discipline scrupulously. It does not depends solely on virtue. But if you have siddhis and use them for bad things, you will get get bad results as a consequence. If you increase energy in huge ways, if you don’t hold some kind of discipline, energy ...

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 ».

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.
