Re: Advice on where to go, what lineage to study

Go to both, see what you can learn there. At least a starting point has been made. As someone else mentioned checkout other centres even if further away, you dont have to go weekly just when you can. Meanwhile try to build up a simple daily practice.

Re: Enlightenment

Buddhists can often be so smart assed. Just look at the answers here to what i guess is a very serious question. Best find a teacher who can guide you than anonymous girls and boys on a forum.

Re: Visiting His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje

I know its controversial, but i do get the feeling he wants to stay in USA at least for the near future. What will take place in the long term is anyone’s guess.

Why do you think he will be residing at Rumtek. Currently in USA and a few engagements there and Canada i think later this year.

Re: Ole Nydahl´s sectarian meltdown

What would be Ole’s view on someone( a student of his let’s say) receiving transmissions from Ayang Rinpoche. Since he himself received the Phowa transmission from Ayang Rinpoche.?
Is this attitude of sticking to one teacher the same approach that Lama Jampa Thaye in his Dechen community takes?

Re: Karmapa OTR free to visit Sikkim

Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

I wonder how the film would pan out if it were about Trungpa and Shambhala in those days. We would see a group who seemed to play out with militarism, there was sexual abusive activity, there was an adoring group of followers and a charismatic leader who liked dressing up. Those times...70’s and 80’...

Re: Karmapa OTR is not happy, speaks out

I see no reason to close this down. In fa t I see many reasons to keep it open. I find it a little sad that people will not even put aside thirty minutes to watch the video but just want a summary. Hopefully much good will come from this honesty of the Karmapa.

Re: Dharani of Glorious Vajra claws / Dorje Dermo

Matthew, many of your questions relate to using vajrayana methods to resolve issues or clear obstacles. Vajrayana has so many methods but most teachers recommend that we lay a foundation of understanding through learning, contemplating first. I would receommend you seek advice from a teacher. I bel...
