There are 31 planes of existence, 4 of which are the states of deprivation, 1 the human realm. What does "Heaven realms" refer to? The remaining planes of existence? heaven and hell...

Re: Short practice for Tseringma/Dorje Yudrönma?

By any chance does anyone know how can we do a very short daily practice to have contact with Tseringma/Dorje Yudrönma? I'm not sure if it's appropriate to share this information publicly, so maybe it's better to contact by private message. :smile: you can do theChNN's longsal divination, or thun o...

imo it can be or not a decent translation, etc., but the result doesn't correspond that's pretty clear.

This one might be a silly question (or maybe not).

If I meditate and my cats are present in the same room and (like in Thun) I invoke The Eight Classes, is it possible that my cats could receive provocations from malicious beings?
ime animals should be out.

Re: Tonglen

The biggest problem is, that I don't trust people. I always think that they have a hidden purpose behind their kind-looking actions. How can I renew this trust? you must give up that trust/untrust, it doesn't matter who is in front. take the leap or you might be wandering never having realized the ...

Re: sang without transmission

Just because they haven't found any signs of smoke offering in India it isn't the same as saying it is a Tibetan thing. Could have come from somewhere else like Anuyoga. You know an other practice that they didn't find (yet) in India? Dzogchen. So I guess you don't think Dzogchen is based in Buddha...

Re: sang without transmission

Well i guess that depends of you consider the roots of sang making smoke or if you consider them to be boddhicitta, offering to the four guests, wisdom ..etc If its the latter then definitly buddhist roots. And Chnn definitly acknowledges dzogchen bompo linage and event taught some As i quoted ChNN...

Re: sang without transmission

Being Tibetan does not make a practice Bon. Being Bon does not make the practices pre-Buddhist. Wiki is a dangerous source, but does identify very ancient use of incense in India. I think we are in the realms of 'nobody knows' and to claim to know as a certainty that the origin was Bon and also pre...

Re: sang without transmission

Can one do sang without transmission? Sang offering is an aborigen thing, a tibetan practice, and afaik it doesn't have roots in buddhadharma. Maybe you can just make aromatic smoke and offer it. Well i guess that depends of you consider the roots of sang making smoke or if you consider them to be ...
