Re: Guru Devotion

There really is no Vajrayāna anywhere but among Himalayan and Mongolian people, apart from Western and Chinese devotees. Shingon is Mantrayāna, not really Vajrayāna. There is no practice of what is known as "unsurpassed yoga tantra" in Shingon. Shingon preceded the transmission of unsurpassed yoga ...

Re: Monastic Tibetan Buddhists Fear Death More

The funny thing is that they are commenting on a passage of an event which never happened, apart from Tsang Nyon Heruka's imagination, a.k.a., "pure vision." Why do we know this? Gampopa's bio reports that Mila was the son of a widower, not a widow. Much of the account in this "autobiography" is ab...

Re: Officially being a Wiccan and pure lander

There is more magic in Vajrayana than all these modern Western magical systems. Asked my resident lama today - he said no magic involved in vajrayana ( as far as I know ) - kinda why I backed out from it. He wouldn't call it "magic" because "magic" is associated with black magic. But rites to summo...

Re: Officially being a Wiccan and pure landek

You cannot achieve much mastery in Wicca as a hobby. If you do so, you can at most be not too bad at divination, but that's it. If you want to truly have some achievement in magick, you will have to do a lot of preliminary practice every day and learn all the basics. Then maybe some of your spells ...

Re: Ancestor worship from a Mahayana POV

What would be the point? All of our ancestors have long since taken rebirth. More likely that it's Confucian, and there is plenty of overlap in populations into Taoism, Mahayana, and Confucianism. In China, but not in India, Tibet, and so on. More Chinese than China, in Singapore where I am from, m...
