Re: Twelve Deeds

I found it after all, in case anyone is interested, though it is 10 acts so the ending is missing.

Re: Twelve Deeds

To be clear, you're saying that the text(s) on lotsawahouse are not what you want? Neither the one by Nagarjuna here (https://www.lotsawahouse.org/indian-masters/nagarjuna/praise-twelve-deeds) or the Jigme Lingpa one here (https://www.lotsawahouse.org/tibetan-masters/jigme-lingpa/praise-twelve-acts...

I remember I had it in pdf form at some point, but I can't find it anywhere anymore. The versions on lotsawa house do not match.

Re: The Ease of Receiving Empowerments

Please provide a citation that. What about Hinayana and Mahayana? Hinayana does not lead to the same result so it is irrelevant here. Mahayana takes infinitely longer. Messing up your Mahayana and/or Hinayana vows can also send you to hell. Do you really need a citation for that? Because there are ...

Re: The Ease of Receiving Empowerments

Apparently there is an equation at work. At some point it's worth risking a number of beings going to hell for the chance for someone to realize Buddhahood through Vajrayana. There is no risk. Without Vajrayana everyone is going to hell, it is only a matter of time. And it is not a chance of buddha...

They are impossible to follow, it stops completely a few seconds after refreshing.

Re: Heavens/Hells/Purelands

Are these said to be literal places somewhere out there in the universe? Yes, but not in this material world that we see as humans who live on Earth. So they exist, but you cannot travel there with a space-ship while in human form. This world is an illusion in any case, humans perceive it as they d...

Re: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

Around a year ago Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche gave the lung etc. for Kunzang Monlam in Spain and it was streamed on facebook. I think it was on the facebook page of a Spanish dharma center but I can't find it. Does anyone have the link? Edit: found it after all: https://www.facebook.com/casadeldharmacdmx...

Re: DJKR letter to Aung San Suu Kyi

You don't like the letter? Why, pray tell? He goes on and on describing how 'the west' is terrible and 'the east' is wonderful, in a ridiculous way. I think his critique is a deserved one. He points at the cultural and economical pressure that put on asian countries which causes them to lose their ...

Re: Working in the entertainment industry

Did the Buddha really say that you'd go to hell for merely being an actor? If so, why are many famous actors (Richard Gere, Jet Li, Tony Jaa, etc.) devout Buddhists? IMO, I do not see how providing joy to others while not inspiring them to do bad deeds (through violence or sexual exploitation, etc....

Re: Learning Dzogchen online

I can't remember for sure now (this was years back) but I don't think they were Nyingma. I've also seen some empowerments where there weren't any questions but it was still specified that one had to have taken refuge before receiving it. I think there was a discussion on the forums in the past abou...

Re: Learning Dzogchen online

I'm not totally sure everyone agrees with that. :smile: I personally do, but at the first teaching I ever attended I had a talk with one of the students of the center where the teaching was and she was adamant you need to go through the formal ritual to have taken refuge. She was a Gelug student. I...

I think on the first day Rinpoche said he will give the lung for Calling The Lama From Afar, has he already given it and I missed it? I checked the part I know 100% sure that I missed and it doesn't seem like he did during that time.
He didn't give it yet as far as i know.
