Shitro when a Master dies?!?
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. Ikkyu Different strokes; but if I were you, I'd avoid getting too tangled up in "exaggerated be...

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...

Re: How to REALLY Relax

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. Focus on the pleasant sensation of the breath. Enjoy. Let go. Start a daily stretching routine. Sleep, eat, and...

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

Re: How to REALLY Relax

1. If you are really suicidal, get professional help, ASAP. 2. You're in high school and you're going through the super achiever meat grinder. Seems its common in your generation. You're going to have to figure out what you want to be when you grow up. Don't know? You're normal. I would suggest tal...

Re: How do I know I'm doing things right?

Wait, so I can add on the practice of Ganges Mahamudra that Garchen Rinpoche gave to the sadhana practice of Manjushri he gave as well? Don't worry. If you want to follow Garchen Rinpoche Mahamudra the Ngondro for Fivefold Mahamudra would be the place to start. His Fivefold Mahamudra has Deity Yoga...

Re: How do I know I'm doing things right?

I believe, if you do it wrongly, you will feel it. Wouldn't that be deluding yourself? For example, I really look through a Manjushri sadhana after receiving its empowerment before later on realizing I didn't do the practice right(like 5 dhyani Buddhas empowerment, memorizing the various extra mant...

Re: Atoms in the Abhidharma and the Element Stupa

I will say this. Usually, one thinks atoms as being combined together. In reality, it actually consists mostly of empty space that then reacts with other compounds through electrons, etc .

"Cursed" Thangkas

If a thangka was blessed by a lama who is controversially spiritual with worldly deities rather than scandals etc., is it safe to use the thangka for practice? I've found some very beautiful paintings and art of deities, but I am fearful of the sort of energy it might have unlike a statue where you ...

Re: The Worship of Donald Trump

Someone told me there was a Q movement that was quickly developing into a religion based around Trump. Q supporters communicate with an oracle who is rumored to be AI or otherworldly, imparting clues as to the Trump's next edict or move. His supporters wear flowing robes emblazoned with Qs and stan...

ALL Enlightened Beings

Got a bit bored, so I decided why not just make a list of all the bodhisattvas, Tathagatas, dakinis, etc.(No worldly bound deities please). Include the forms of others like for Chenrezig, make sure to put his Cundi or Guan Yin form and put all Taras and her specific emanations. To start off: Shakyam...

Re: The Worship of Donald Trump

Trump is perhaps a dark kind of gyalpo with a back story like Ganesh. In his myth he is caught in bed with his mother, head cut off, and replaced with a rotting durian. He then returns to bed with his mother as he really is a 'motherf*cker'. Worship comprises anointing a tiny tower with snake oil b...
