Highly recommended. Also highly recommend the notebooks from his lectures at Tail of the Tiger if you can find ...

Re: Studying Uttaratantra Shastra

As you see there is quite a bit to choose from. FWIW my own recommendation would be the one first mentioned by kirtu, i.e. https://www.shambhala.com/buddha-nature.html . A huge amount of careful work went into its preparation. FYI: to go with the book, you may also find some of these talks useful. ...

Re: Independent investigation confirms “physical, sexual, emotional abuse” by Sogyal Rinpoche

This whole thing is very discouraging to me. Sogyal doesn't hit as close to home but as a recent former-shambhalian my own experiences plus hearing about teachers like Sogyal makes it harder to trust the Dharma or teachers in general. A part of me knows that the dharma has so much truth and wisdom ...

I don't remember hearing anyone claiming Harvey Weinstein was displaying crazy wisdom.. his victims may have been silenced/stayed silent for various reasons but I doubt any of them felt his exploitation was a display of kindness for their benefit. That to me differentiates cult vs. not. (Of course c...

Hi Pema, He likely won't but readers should know that his comments have been removed from the Lion's Roar page where they originally appeared. Seems like he is unwilling to be debated. This exemplifies the kind of integrity which surrounds the Sakyong in his inner circle - Nick is a 'Kusung', or pe...

Re: Buddhist Project Sunshine Phase 3 Final Report (Shambhala/Sakyong Mipham/etc)

If that statement about Pema Chödrön is correct, that is very disappointing, though not surprising. Pema Chödrön has taught alongside Mipham and her silence about the scandal has IMHO been suspicious. *sigh* The statement is merely that Pema Chödrön dismissed a report of abuse out of hand. It is di...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

My initial read of your response was that you were accusing me of being a Shambhala apologist of some sort, coming to his defense. ah, sorry if it offended.. it was more a light-hearted teasing than anything. don't disagree at all with your overall messages and understand the sentiment too. It was ...

nice try... given the 1st half of your thesis - that helpful teachings/ideas can come from flawed individuals, which to me is obvious but beside the point here, why do you need to "not want Lodro to be guilty"?

Re: What would you do?

Yes. ... trying to retain equanimity through non-attachment to the self. I imagine it would be (will be?) difficult because clinging to life is a primary drive reinforced by roughly the last two billion years of evolution.
