Re: Does zen have anything similar to dream yoga?

Years ago I did training in a Japanese zen temple, practicing susokkan or counting of deep breaths 8 hours or more every day. In common buddhist terms, this is shamatha practice. Consequentially I had lucid sleep and close to no dreams at all for several months in a row, every night. They don't talk...

Re: Doubts regarding Soto Zen

...Regarding Zen in general, the most important thing is to connect with a qualified teacher... I think the main dish if we talk about zen is clear kensho-satori realization.. does not matter where, soto rinzai, obaku or any othere non-japanese zen tradition. and 100% true, the teacher is crucial.....

Re: Pure vision, what's up with?

Sure. I guess this interpretation by Kunzang Dechen Lingpa (who I assume you referred to) is rather unique, since tertonship usually refers to someone who has been original disciple of GR. KDL was such a person as well. What did/do other Tertons think/feel about that? Also, have such tertons been f...

Re: Pure vision, what's up with?

My late teacher, an important terton, said if you want to be a terton, the only real requirement is faith in Guru Rinpoche. If you supplicate him strongly enough with genuine compassion for sentient beings, then you might be able to reveal terma. How does this fit with the traditional view of who c...

Re: What it means to be a ngakpa

Aro Lingma is a fictional character If some Sakyapa or Gelugpa came up to you and said that your practice was fraudulent because it had no lineage and was just a fantasy concocted by a Tibetan named Dili Terton, how would you feel? You would feel completely disrespected. Well, I am pointing out to ...

Re: What are the requirements to be "lineage holders"?

Shenphen Rinpoche, who is one of my important masters, is indeed the primary lineage holder of Dudjom Tersar, and the keeper of Dudjom Rinpoche's seat in North America where Dudjom Rinpoche concealed many precious teachings. I'd never heard of this rinpoche before. He's a son of Dudjom Rinpoche, th...

Re: There's buddhadharma and then there the rest

Is it possible to end suffering--anyone's suffering--in an ultimate sense by any other means than good old Buddha-Dharma? I don't mean that as a rhetorical position. I'd like to know where you and others stand on this one. Hi, I am a student of buddhadharma but do not consider myself "a buddhist". ...

I remember Dudjom Rinpoche said something like dzogchen-adepts should tone it down with alcohol and fornication, something along those words.

You missed the point. I am not talking about J Akhon Lhamo but about the confirmation given to her by a highly regarded buddhist lama. Not all confirmations are what they appear to be. Would you be kind to explain, please? One thing I've noticed is that lamas are often more open-minded than their s...

Hi folks, Seriously though, his idea about awakening have nothing to do with Buddhadharma. I'm quoting this because often buddhism is clearly said to be something entirely different than other types of spiritual teachings.
