Re: "highest practices" and anti-intellectualism

The statement by Kalu Rinpoche lacks supporting evidence.(1) Anyhow: Right, what i'm talking about is a dismissive attitude about practices and praxis though, not view. Like an attempt at some kind of ideological purity. An idea like "don't waste your time with that Tantric practice, common Mahayana...

Re: "highest practices" and anti-intellectualism

The two statements are not mutually exclusive.

Maybe I should be allowed the post as I stand as witness to having met Guru Garab Dorje.

Thanks!

Re: "highest practices" and anti-intellectualism

Kagyus in general always try to jimmy Dzogchen into their gradualist framework. :twisted:
I attended the teachings of a monk who focussed on matters for the Drikung, but at the apex he placed Dzogchen.

Re: Does it matter if you reveal your yidam?

"Yi dam" means "promise," actually. Thus, if you are a Dzogchen practitioner, your promise is vidyā. If you say that you are a Dzogchen practitioner, you are essentially claiming that vidyā is your yidam. Everything else is secondary. So when a person on Dharmawheel says they practice Dzogchen they...

Re: Wounded ego

Yes, there are teachings. But this one in particular has nothing to do with Buddhism. It's your constitution that makes you a target for jokes like having pepper placed under your tushy because of your sensitivity, to see what happens next. The positive side is that at the same time, the same people...

Re: Buddhist Anarchism

What do all these posts have to do with a Mahayana or Vajrayana discussion?
Why do you put so much effort into turning everyone off?
Why are you here after all? You look like you put your horse before your wagon.

Re: Root Lama versus Dzogchen transmission

Stefos,
You will have clarifications if you continue your practice as directed by your refuge lama.
I think this is a fairly favorable answer.
Not to miss that your teachers have Buddha mind and you can unite them into one, and then they are one with your own mind.
