Re: IS THE DALAI LAMA SAFE?

Safe ? He has nothing to worry about from protesters that would defeat the point of peaceful protest and not do any good. Actually that was rhe point of the article. These protestors are making a lot of noise but ultimately not as dangerous as a real Chinese assassin. If the Chinese had wanted to k...

Re: Buddhism is peaceful?

That positive contribution would be more meaningful if you did the work necessary to have an informed opinion. How did the staff at your centre react to my suggestion that you learn Tibetan? Have you read any scholarly research on Phabongkha or that period of Tibetan history? Have you looked at the...

Re: Buddhism is peaceful?

So why are you participating here if it is so putrid? Go back to your board where you are moderator and head honcho and can set all the rules you like. Is it simply that the board is not active enough to maintain your attention so you feel compelled to come here, despite how putrid it is? Generally...

Re: Buddhism is peaceful?

Tsongkhapafan I agree. But the "Public Announcement" shows a sort of tar and feather through conjecture operation, and it has gone too far. Things were quiet, and improving, but someone's agenda has again opened the floodgates to projection and misunderstanding. I just really couldn't believe what ...

Re: Buddhism is peaceful?

Basically, undermining the reputation of everyone who doesn't see Phabongkhapa in the same way you do is what I'd like you stop. I have no problem with that. Individuals have different karma and therefore see things differently. However, it's okay to criticise Gelug Lamas who don't conform to the v...

Re: Buddhism is peaceful?

I love Je Pabongkhapa such an excellent Lama who gave the gelug lineage the next generation of Brilliant masters, Id sooner take their word of what he was like then what has been said by the jealous and marginalised of the time. :popcorn:

Re: How to tell if a lama is an emanation of a deity?

For me it is simple. Vajradhara said that in degenerate times he would appear in the form of an ordinary spiritual guide. :namaste: Does this mean that any ordinary spiritual guide is, ipso facto, an emanation of Vajradhara? I ask because I'm trying to understand your answer, not because I'm intent...
