Re: Thoughts on Vajra Hell

I'm not allowed to say this bluntly so let me ask the following questions. The answers paint a picture. Who, exactly, is Buddha Vajradhara? Who is Dorje Drollo? What is Dorje Drollo's activity most known for? What is Vajra Pride? What is a person who unites their mind with the guru and deity called?...

Re: Thoughts on Vajra Hell

Going back to the topic of Vajra Hell, there is something odd that happens when you observe yourself as overwhelmingly cursed to negative experience. It's like, imagine your karma as a page in a book, and each negative action you take makes a small black mark. Now imagine the page completely black. ...

Re: Thoughts on Vajra Hell

Reading a book and hearing recordings of a practitioner provide absolutely no empowerment, transmission, qualification or attainment whatsoever. You have not and will not make any progress in Vajrayana without a guru. Sadly, we seem to be getting quite a few of these threads recently on DW. On a po...

Re: Thoughts on Vajra Hell

You read some books by Trungpa and became confused. Not the first or the last. I found an audio recording of one of Mr. Trungpa's students leading the Sadhana. It wasn't particularly difficult to find. As I've mentioned, that particular Sadhana was written specifically to give to the Western public...

If you find the same instructions I did, yes. Every bit.
Okay, so you did not receive these instructions from a teacher, you read them in books.

Well, that explains a lot.

Re: Thoughts on Vajra Hell

It always weirds me out when people act like it's a big deal. Do you want me to describe it? Is that even allowed? Dont I need to carry the experience closely, hidden from others, like a rare jewel. Or something like that. If you were keeping it closely hidden then you would not have made a public ...

Re: Thoughts on Vajra Hell

What is an Arya? I'm less than the illusion of a dog. My words weren't meant to be commandments. Just thoughts. I apologize for the confusion. Those who reach the path of seeing are referred to as Arya, Noble Ones, not ordinary beings. Why would anyone sing such clumsy, useless words? Is it OK if I...

Thoughts on Vajra Hell

Om. I am pretty sure I'm going to Vajra Hell, And as such I suppose I should learn to look forward to it, Since I am told to not fear anything, And to live without apprehension. It is curious to think about. It seems the sort of place humans would think of, When describing their fear of samsara, And...
