Re: Bodhisattva Vows and Bodhicitta Upkeep

Hey, bit more practical question this time. How to best and easily upkeep our bodhisattva vows and bodhicitta in general? Bodhicitta and Bodhisattva vows are such a precious gem that it would be a shame to let it deteriorate and unfortunately that is what is happening to me quite often after a shor...

Re: Spiritual friends

How did you all find spiritual friends? How do you build and maintain relationships with them? How did you conclude that they could serve as spiritual friends? I'm interested in your personal experiences and reflections on this. I'm familiar with certain textbook answers. they are sangha, and we co...

Re: Chogyam Trungpa's The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma

Hey, few days back I have started reading his book on 4 Noble truths and quite frankly I kinda like the explanation so far. And I thought about maybe getting bit more into his writings. Would you recommend reading The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma? And general question how would you rate...

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

I am watching this argument, and it seems impossible, largely because there are different ideas of what ngakpa means, and different identities associated with the term. 1. ngakpa may refer to any practitioner of mantra. 2. ngakpa may indicate a lay practitioner identity contrasted with monastic ide...

Re: Buddha on Governants, Politicians and Military forces

The article of Matthew J. Moore is too long. I read it through anyway. I don't agree with him in everything he says. Buddhist India by T. W. Rhys Davids gives a comprehensive look at the political, economic and social situation in India at the time of Buddha. i'm reading Moore's article, i find it ...

Re: Tsa Lung and Guru Yoga in the Bön tradition vs Tibetan Buddhism

to be honest, i wouldn't buy the bon ticket at all. I don't know TWR at all, but that's a pretty sweeping statement. There are excellent, accessible Bon teachers out there and their presentation of Dzogchen practice is consistent in all important ways with the Nyingma presentation. Of course some N...

Re: Where are the younger Buddhists?

Something I was curious about is the age distribution in Buddhist communities. Do you have younger Buddhists in your sanghas? I don't know if it's just my area or indicative of a larger trend, but there are relatively few younger (<40) practitioners in the places I've attended. Most folks are in th...

Good afternoon, So, I saw that Ligmincha International has a very interesting curriculum teaching Bön Dzogchen.

Re: Ngakpas everywhere!
