Re: Yidams on a bikini

Before people go torching Amazon stores, it may be worth remember that it is not Amazon selling these goods, but a private seller who is using Amazon space. Amazon are prob noteven aware of it. Maybe pressure could be directed to that company.

Trungpa and shamata

I heard recently that Chogyam Trungpa was the first teacher in the tibetan tradition to encourage group silent sitting.
Is this so?

Re: What place does pilgrimage have in Buddhist practice?

For Vajrayana practitioners Yanglesho/Asura cave is as important as Bodh Gaya so it is said.

Re: What place does pilgrimage have in Buddhist practice?

Can someone remind me why Mt Kailash is significant to Buddhists. Hindus and jains i belive have clear reasons why they go on pilgrimage there.

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.

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.

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

Has anyone heard anything about HH Karmapa accepting the invitation to visit Sikkim. So far he is making plans to teach in USA and Canada this summer so I am wondering when this visit would take place.
