Re: Kyabgön Phakchok rinpoche

Found this on the internet and from the Nepal's "Economic National Daily" newspaper dated June 06, 2016. It's about Kyabgon Phakchok Rinpoche and his father-in-law Lodi Gyari Rinpoche. "Reports of Lodi Gyari and his son-in-law’s alleged money laundering have captured the media’s interest On June 3,...

Re: What it means to be a ngakpa

This is what I love about E-Sangha/DW/Vajracakra, etc. We can have basically civilized conversations about Buddhist hanging judges, that are occasionally soft on rapists, and who condemned Nazis to hang while practicing mindfulness of breathing with their spare time, etc., etc., in the middle of a ...

Re: Empowerments by Dalai Lama on 14th-16th&18th-21th

In the past, HHDL has stated that a specific empowerment transmission over webcast was valid. Whether or not these empowerments will be considered valid is up to HHDL's, so I would keep an eye out for any such statements during the preliminary teachings. In the case of the Kalachakra last year for ...

Re: Instant Presence and Physical Pain

Everyone one has a choice in their lives, some choose to follow a guru, some follow a career, some practice in solidary, some devote to study of sutra and develop their own thesis, some a mixture of this and that, I myself am a mixture of career and study. Direct introduction is important, but it i...

Re: Instant Presence and Physical Pain

For the spirit of academic/scholastic discussion of buddhism, one should uphold the Buddha's injunction as stated in the four reliances. One of that apply in this, is not to rely on the person (teacher) but the teaching (dharma). Therefore your asking for authority of teacher for anything being dis...

Re: what is your approach to Dharma?

:good: I think that rory is asking if the teachings are for sale. If so, then her questions are completely relevant and should be clarified directly and immediately. No, they are irrelevant.

Re: Kyabgön Phakchok rinpoche

I am more amused that people would ask Rinpoche such mundane questions(instead of Dharma related qn) in the first way. :rolling: People are people. They may want validation, emotional support, someone to look up to, belief that someone is going to solve their problems. This is all normal and unders...

Re: Kyabgön Phakchok rinpoche

As far as what questions to ask, in my experience with teachers: ask Dharma questions or questions about medicine, astrology, divination, etc, but don't ask worldly questions (unless you really want to). Also be careful how you phrase things. If tells you to do a certain practice, you really should...

You really should get an interview and ask him all your questions, he is a very great guy unlike any other Lama's I know. He teach Chokling Tersar and also Taklung Kagyu.

Re: Liberation through Taste Medicine???

It refers to practicing Dzogchen. They all have their different uses. In my opinion, not much. Of course we always have secondary conditions, and for some people the indirect Atiyoga path is more effective since it is a path based on symbols. May you elaborate on the different uses part and Atiyoga...
