Re: Inherency and the Object of Negation

Gelugpas classify some conceptual cognitions as direct realizes (དངོས་སུ་རྟོགས་པ་) because they say that they realize their object through the force of experience. Examples include the second moment of an inferential cognition and also memory. Certainly, Dignaga who defines direct perception as “th...

Re: Moderating and Posting

Just an idea... I think a rule about moderators refraining from posting their personal opinions in the threads that they are moderating should be considered. This would help move towards at least some semblance of objective moderation. If this rule is already in place please ignore. Which would red...

Re: Where have all the Kagyupas gone?

I think Kagyu school needs some vastly realized, powerful and charismatic master similar to Milarepa, who will collect all the common and rare teachings and reinstate the original style of practice. This person should strip the tantra naked - that is take away that sutra dress that monastics put on...

Re: Where have all the Kagyupas gone?

Tom, thank you for correcting my error. I had assumed that Trungpa Rinpoche, being a Zurmang tulku, had drawn mainly from the lineage he was educated in when he brought the Buddhadharma to the West. I did not mean to imply that the Zurmang lineage had been adulterated, just to try and point out tha...

Re: Where have all the Kagyupas gone?

Surmang/Zurmang Kagyu did not morph into Shambhala Buddhism. The Zurmang tradition is a completely different tradition to Shambhala Buddhism. Also, I could be wrong, but I heard that Trungpa Rinpoche decided not to teach much from the Zurmang tradition in the west. However, the head of Zurmang Kagyu...
