Re: Nichiren Yamabushi

I wonder if his hand mudra while chanting is characteristic? I see the Nichiren statue on his altar, perhaps thats a 4 statue configuration. The same mudra is used in both Shinto and Yamabushi waterfall purification practices! He is chanting the daimoku and also features Nichiren Shonin in his alta...

Nichiren Yamabushi

Can somebody please provide a light on which sect does the monk on 4:19Min belongs? He seems to be a Nichiren Buddhist, and is also chanting Daimoku while doing takigyo under the waterfall, but also uses a garb that resembles that used by Yamabushi sect! What sect is this one?

Re: Koryu Shugendo

But from what I can sense from the article, the lineage is a "reconstructed" one, and not one that derives from a living transmission between a contemporary teacher and student!

Re: Koryu Shugendo

Gaynor Sekimori did some research on the post-war rebirth/revival of various Shugendo traditions that I have found interesting. Among others it has examined the one in question, which apparently was a family tradition able to preserve an archive of ritual manuals and other documents: For example: h...

Koryu Shugendo

Has someone here in DW done any practice or training with Koryu Shugendo? What do you have to say about to this tradition? Is the lineage authentic and ancient as they claim to be?

Re: Purification Practices

What are the practices that purify breaking Precepts and Bodhisattva Vows found in the Sutras? Thank you. For Chinese, use the 88 Buddha's confession. It has the name of the 35 Buddhas, plus some more. 八十八佛大忏悔文: 大慈大悲悯(mǐn)众生,大喜大舍济含识,相好光明以自严,众等至心皈命礼。 南无皈依十方尽虚空界一切诸佛, 南无皈依十方尽虚空界一切尊法, 南无皈依十方尽虚空界一切贤圣僧。 ...

The second teaching session of the day is being streamed now.
I'm referring to the chod instructions that will be given at the retreat by Khenpo Tenzin.

Seeing as that one's only open for 5 people, I doubt its gonna be livestreamed. I may be wrong though.

Before answering that we would have to clarify the historicity of Padmasambhava. Irrelevant! :thinking: What about the authenticity of Mahayana Sutras or the historicity of Shakyamuni?

Re: Mala Etiquette

It is the responsibility of the practitioner to obtain the proper items for a given practice. There are dependent originations at play when a correctly made mala is used, counted with the left hand, etc, that cannot be duplicated with a digital counter and so on.

Re: Mala Etiquette

If I chant a mantra I always need a mala? I have seen no such advice from Malcolm. Please link to it.
