Re: Vipasyana Meditation

I want to know about the Vipasyana meditation methods used in Mahayana as well as in Vajrayana (but not Theravada). Does anyone know of books, websites, groups names of teachers which teach Vipasyana meditation in the Mahayana or Vajrayana? Just to reiterate I am not looking for the Vipassana done ...

We have no free will if are ignorant of our awareness , in this case karmas and surroundings force us to take decisions. None of us have free will. But wi...

encouraging creativity

1. It is written in Lotus sutra that if one writes down the Wisdom of Buddhas all humans beings together will not have knowledge of even one Buddha. So whatever is written in sutras is not even the millionth part of Buddha knowledge and wisdom. 2. It is also written in lotus sutra that any one who d...
