Re: Hot and Cool Drinks?

So in most ways what we eat is not all that important. With the exeption of calorie restriction which may have some inpact the whole concept of "we are what we eat" is nonsense. Thinking like this is responsible for many diseases that people have, which they could easily avoid. N Certainly, if one ...

Re: Hot and Cool Drinks?

Thanks, Namdrol....Some have claimed cold drinks make them sick....what's TM's take on this? Same reason, kill digestive heat, makes your immune system compromised, etc. The Imune system is a very complex system that spans the body...a few cold drinks wont have any real effect. Remember the human d...

Re: Pureland,Physics,Science,

Sad to say, He is way off on a great deal of his bassic science.

Try reading Brian Greene 's book "the Hidden Reality". It is very much in line with the Buddhist Teachings anf he gets the science right.

Re: Self-Generation and Empowerment

Re: Time well Spent?

I think the most important thing to do is to put your root Guru's instructions into practice and rely upon him completely. I always come back to that myself, although sometimes,with the Dharma, I'm like a kid in a sweet shop and want to taste many different books and instructions, but I'm seriously...

Re: What is Tibetan Buddhism

This is one of those questions that seems as though it might be realitively simple but can be a bit hard to pin down. There are several different schools of TB. Personaly I belong to the Kagyu school. Any book by Kalu Rinpoche will give you a good overview of the Kaygu loneage. Of course any book by...

Re: Disposal

This can be a somewhat tricky topic, even more so for those of us like me who live in a city. When I took Refuge It was taught that we should respect Buddha Images texts etc. That we should keep them in High places in or home and not put them on the floor or on chairs or other places where we sit.
