Re: 105 Bead Mala?

it's just missing beads. it's not that uncommon for a mala to be several beads short. i have personally seen it enough to advise every one to count a mala a few times before buying one, at least if we talk about nepal/india.

Re: A question about secrecy within Tibetan Buddhism

...You are telling people not to go and meet Sakya Trizin, the Dalai Lama, and Thrangu Rinpoche, if they get the chance. If you actually influence someone enough so that they actually take your word for it, do you think the result will be good for either of you? nope, i'm not telling that. nope, i'...

Re: A question about secrecy within Tibetan Buddhism

i've seen people who are like "i got teachings from Karmapa, from HH Dalai Lama, from Tai Situpa, Thrangu Rinpoche and i hope to meet Sakya Trizin next week to receive some empowerments from him as well". imho, that is rather a homegrown approach. That is not 'homegrown', that is the best approach ...

Re: A question about secrecy within Tibetan Buddhism

hi Magnus, thank you for sharing your opinion. i guess we have agree to disagree. it's nice to know it works for you just fine. as for me i like to go old-school tibetan way. that is, you get close to your guru so you can be really exposed to him for him to guide you. many westerners nowadays think ...

Re: A question about secrecy within Tibetan Buddhism

tomdzogchen27, my take on it is that a close relationship with and existence of a root guru are indispensable. if you'd like to learn swimming you can get a picture from books, but you can not learn it properly without a water and a guide, who will observe your movements, see your mistakes and corre...

Re: Dzogchen without deity yoga/two stages?

Some of those lineages you mention have manuals for, say, trekchod and onward which are presented as completely freestanding from two stages and could in theory be practiced as such. But I don't think anyone in those lineages would teach them that way... this is what i'm saying. i respect the way l...

Re: Dzogchen without deity yoga/two stages?

But generally, if you want mundane siddhis, then you need to practice some creation stage practice, like Tara, Kilaya, Amitayus, etc. depending on one needs. no, not really, i m not after mundane siddhis honestly. all i aspire is to see true nature of things, but that's a common. i was just curious...

Dzogchen without deity yoga/two stages?

these are 2 quotes by Malcolm Smith taken from 2 topics, both locked. ...It may be the case that in modern Tibetan Buddhism Dzogchen has become mixed with anuyoga teachings, especially at the level of empowerments. For example, the Longchen Nyinthig is mostly deity practices. The Dzogchen section of...

Re: Dudjom Tersar information list

i've read somewhere Dudjom Rinpoche said Vajrakilaya and Thröma practices are most effective in our time. can someone: 1. provide the full quote and 2. if it's not clear from the quote explain as to why is that? thanks.

Re: Resources on Lung Gom Pa Lamas.

Changling Rinpoche (lotusspeach) has mentioned one of the older lamas could outrun a horse. he didn't specify if he was lung-gom-pa though. he was from Rechung Nyengyu lineage. i think Rechungpa biographies also mentioned him using "fast feet" for covering huge distances in just a few days.

Re: Does anyone know anything about Lama Jigme Namgyal Rinpoche?

i've been told his monastery is in TCV which is a village several kms away from Mcleodgunj. i've been to TCV before but didn't pay attention, if it's there it must be small gompa. as for this Ngakpa itself i got the impression it's better to take him with a grain of salt.

Heart-sons

i was trying to locate Dudjom Rinpoche heart-sons, but as such i found only Khenpo Karpo mentioned straightforward as one, he passed away in 2017. this is where i noticed that so many Nyingma high lamas passed away in the last 10-15 years. for example, Dawa Chödak Rinpoche, 2017 Chatral Rinpoche, 20...
