Practicing for people rather than in front of them is generally a good approach.
So what's the point of "anyone who hears it will be liberated" etc.?

Re: Only thirteen buddhafields?

There are thirteen buddhafields apart from this one where Dzogchen teachings may be found. This is the meaning. It is meant to point out how rare Dzogchen teachings are. Out of the countless buddhafields in the universe/s, there are only thirteen buddhafields that possess these teachings, and ours ...

Re: Mundane Wants?

This has all been discussed before, so it's probably pointless. Simply put, at some point you will have nothing left to gain from these practices (mundane or otherwise), if you keep doing them in public and discussing them with your classmates, and it will be too late then. No, as in I can practice...

Re: Only thirteen buddhafields?

In mahayana there is an inmeasurable number of nirmanakaya and sambhogakaya buddhafields, but in dzogchen there are only thirteen buddhafields (zhing khrams) is this correct? There are thirteen buddhafields apart from this one where Dzogchen teachings may be found. This is the meaning. It is meant ...

Re: Mundane Wants?

Yeah, I've sometimes had my high freaking out when I realized I forgot to do my sadhana on some days and was doing some sort of Vajrasattva sadhana or lungta or something(I've managed to practice Vajrasattva in the morning from Mondays to Fridays in school and on the bus at last when my parents can...

Re: Mundane Wants?

Once a person accomplishes a daily bodhicitta, how does one raise it to at least once per hour? :tongue: Not sure what you mean, but I would see it both as an immediate and long-term effort at the same time. You're doing well, you can put your trust in the Buddhas/Bodhisattvas. If you get a problem...

Re: Mundane Wants?

Make it simpler: Just do your daily Sadhana and focus on developing Bodhicitta. How does one keep consistent bodhicitta everyday? I keep having certain days and times, my bodhicitta "feels high," then on other days, it just seems too tiring to do the practice or there's low bodhicitta, but I get on...

Re: White Tara Mantra

Hi I have a friend who is attracted to White Tara, but maybe the Empowerment is a step too far at this point. I heard from another Vajrayana practitioner that there are some Mantras non-initiates can recite. Seeking clarity on whether or not a non-empowered practitioner can recite the White Tara Ma...

Unusual.....
Doesn't make sense. :shrug:
Especially when the master is still alive.
Well, that's what his students here told me. They stated they will be doing a Zhitro for him(I think it was Anuyoga) and the Guru Yoga Ah. :shrug:

Re: How to REALLY Relax

Every day, priests minutely examine the Law And endlessly chant complicated sutras. Before doing that, though, they should learn How to read the love letters sent by the wind and rain, the snow and moon.

Re: How to REALLY Relax

Okay, unfortunately, AP Chemistry has just been a poison that has already changed my entire sleeping schedule to just 5 hours a day, increased stress by a million times, added on partial suicidal thoughts, and has grown an exaggerated "belief" in superstitions and dependence on mantras from the Bud...

Re: How to REALLY Relax

See if this helps. Don't worry about AP Chemistry too much. Just tackle it one main idea and problem set that goes with that idea at a time. The test is not until the end of the second semester. If your suicide statement was not excessive teen hyperbole then get professional help immediately. All o...

Recognize sensory desire is suffering. Lie down and close your eyes. Relax all of your muscles. Let go of the past. Let go of the future. Let go of mental commentary. Focus on the breath.

Practicing Dharma should generate plenty of your body's happy feel good chemicals (Serotonin, Dopamine, Oxytocin, and Endorphin).
