Re: Tonglen question

No. No one can experience the karma of another, even if you pray for it or apply tonglen. But nevertheless, even if the hardship of another did ripen on you due to your practice of tonglen, you should consider this wonderful. You can think that you truly removed their suffering. Kevin... But, how k...

Re: Long Life Prayer for ChNN?

I dont remember which thread it was on but I do remember someone saying that there is a long life prayer for ChNN. If anyone has it and could post it I would be very appreciative. Rinpoche has always been against having prayers composed for him Instead, he says, one should do for all teachers. It d...

Re: Tonglen question

Re: Death and Consciousness

What happens if your body is cremated or buried before consciousness leaves it ? It depends on the level of consciousness that remains and how much one practiced. If one isnt prepared being cremated too soon will make recognizing the bardo of dharmata much more difficult than it already is. Thank y...

Re: Is Tobacco an obstacle to practice?

In the DC we do 9 purification breathings ans also yantra yoga, and other purification practices. To consume such intoxicants of the breath and organs is doing just the opposite. According to the practice principle, you can justify it's consumption if you are capable of integrate it into contemplati...

It's said intense anger (and other things) lead to rebirth in the hell realms. But I haven't came across any explanation of what causes rebirth in a hot hell as opposed to a cold hell? Is this found anywhere?
Indiference -> cold
Hate -> hot

This is what i got from Barto Thodol commentaries

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

Btw, Garchen Rinpoche shares ChNN's opinion on Jesus and Mary, too. As does Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche. And at least one of TUR's sons. And, at least when it comes to Mary, Lopon Ogyan Tanzin Rinpoche. I could go on, but of course there is no point. Those who reject these equivalencies/similarities/af...
