Re: Pursuing Graduate Degree in Buddhist Studies

My goal is primarily to finish my Dudjom book project. I realized after spending an extended amount of time in India and Nepal that lacking spoken Tibetan and having to rely on hiring translators is going to make completing the book much more difficult than I had anticipated. I'm not sure if transl...

Yeah, It definitely varies from field to field, department to department and faculty to faculty.

Well, I always have a soft spot for aspiring academics.... Here's the thing... Unless you track for a PhD and academic career, the money is going to be hard to come by. Masters programs will be happy to take your money and you'll buy some precious time with scholars but you'll basically be on your ...

Re: Tibetan words

I didn't say it was Ladakhi Good to keep in mind that this is a Ladakhi publication Hmmm, maybe it's not just in Tibetan where there are regional differences Excuse my lack of clarity. Ladhaki is a multivalent term. It refers to both the region of Ladakh and to the Ladakh language. In the first cas...

Re: Tibetan words

Looking closely, it was published by one of the Khangsten's of Drepung Loseling and printed in Ladakh - which doesn't make it Ladakhi. I didn't say it was Ladakhi, but there are regional differences in written Tibetan (not to even mention the many differences in the spoken Tibetan varieties), espec...

Re: Tibetan words

Good to keep in mind that this is a Ladakhi publication and that there are often different translations in use in the Tibetan areas of the PRC, especially as it pertains to things introduced in the 20th century.

Re: Rus-Tibetan Buddhism

"Bakshi " is a corruption of "Pakshi", as in Karma Pakshi. They were followers of Karme Pakshi (Karmapa 2), better known today as lamas of the Karma Kagyu sect. I don't think so. To begin with, the word without doubt comes from Chinese roots. Please cite sources for the claim that all "bakshis" wer...

Re: Rus-Tibetan Buddhism

P.S. It is probably an oversimplification to say that Mongol Buddhism is the same as Tibetan Buddhism. I was just reading a book edited by Vesna Wallace (also known as a Kalacakra scholar), "Buddhism in Mongolian History, Culture, and Society", which points out some important differences. Of course...

Re: Victims of Communism

Okay, from a certain viewpoint you are right. 24% of the population are still a minority. But they are many people though. They are not a rarity. In the former DDR/GDR (German Democratic Republic) there have been also good things and it's no crime to be romantic about them. But it is very dangerous...

Re: Victims of Communism

Some people from the former east block grew to real haters of communism. They are not a minority. Actually, according to many surveys, the real haters are in fact a vocal minority. Most people when surveyed, including the former DDR according to one recent survey, have views ranging from the much m...

Re: Victims of Communism

I've lived through (the end of) so-called Communism in the USSR, albeit as a child, but let me make it very clear, it was not all bad. This is why there is so much nostalgia back in those parts for 'the good old days'. Of course everything you think was pretty much true - the Communist Party was pr...

Hi,

There is a small typo in your quote above. ཚས་པ is missing a ཨེ. It should read
མེ་སྤྲེལ་ལོ་བོད་ཟླ་༤་ཚེས་པ་༦་
Typo aside, it is the sixth day of the fourth month of the year of the fire monkey.

Re: Seventh Root Downfall, Academia, Public Life

I ask because I do seem to encounter people with a more hardline view, i.e, that non-initiates of all types are forbidden from hearing the technical details of practice, seeing the mandala, etc. This is the traditional Indian way, but much has changed. This is largely a show among Tibetans, since y...

Interesting. Do you happen to know what particular Vajrayana practice or lineage these babas are connected to? Not sure about the babas in question, but Gendun Chophel reports meeting Indian tantrikas that were practicing Cakrasamvara in the 1930s. OK, thanks for the info. Do you have a reference? ...
