Re: Discriminating Wisdom

in your statement i would replace Virtue by "total realization", wich contains virtue, happyness, and so, even if in such case -of total realization- one should already duell beyhond conditions. how ever i'm sure that, due to the nature of the subject of the unquietude, there are tons of s...

Re: Psychological Indicators for Bodhicitta

i found cause of such fears in karma and the bardo experiences. imagine that we were animals and we got eaten alive, it's traumatic, isn't it? many experiences are extrapolated when we face circumstances for example when we see meat we don feel very sorry but when we see an animal butchered and then...

Re: Go-Ma Sacred dance

yeah, i found this dance very precious and clear. each action of smash, bond, etc. is an amazing example of what lamas do for the sake of the buddhadharma. it's fantastic.

this is my opinion of course, i don't know really how is it throug monastic view. however, i'm happy to share it.

I enjoyed Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and I can see why he's popular. Very succinct and had a no-nonsense attitude(to the po...
