Re: Korean home altar

Isn't Jesa more a confucian thing than Buddhist? But I'm also curious, the closest thing I've seen resembling a buddhist home altars in Korea are the ones that are quite elaborate, but in Shamanic lodges instead of houses! https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEw...

in my experience erick is american far right wing kook politically. totally lacking in any compassion for others. that makes me suspicious of his translations. an acedemic not a compassionate buddhist.
Since when did politics have to do with anything in Buddhism?

Gampopa and Rechungpa?

So, I noticed that Gampopa is referred to as the "sun-like" disciple while Rechungpa is referred to as the "moon-like" disciple. Why did Milarepa exactly consider Gampopa over Rechung when Rechung was a student of Milarepa WAY longer than Gampopa? Garchen Rinpoche said that Gampopa was able to benef...

EBOLA IS BACK!!!

Unfortunately, not many people are aware that Ebola just came back to Congo now...

If everyone can do Medicine Buddha, Ritro Loma Gyonma(like Tara Mandala did last time), or whatever practice you have available for this new outbreak of ebola, that would be great!

Thank you! :namaste:
