Re: Letter from Shamar Rinpoche on Vajrayana

Oh, and with regard to Karmamudra and Mahamudra-- Karmamudra requires a great deal of prior training, at least in the orthodox Kagyu presentation, and isn't really about sex at all, except in a very superficial way. It's about engendering ...

... approach to Mahamudra. Maybe back in the days Naropa was teaching Mahamudra this may have been the case, but not anymore... Can't imagine doing karmamudra while practicing shine and lhagtong through which you can also realize mahamudra. :D

Re: Letter from Shamar Rinpoche on Vajrayana

"Without karmamudra, no Mahamudra." Hogwash. Except Harimoo is quoting Naropa's famous citation, who is the one who said this. So, in the context of Vajrayana, as taught by Naropa, it's quite correct. And I'm not sure I would ...

Re: Letter from Shamar Rinpoche on Vajrayana

In another setting, there is the tradition of Kalachakra, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama has stated that while karmamudra is important here too, for the extra sharp practitioner (high capacity), the jnanamudra suffices. I think it's more that the "extra sharp practitioner" realizes, ...

Re: Very sad news: Letter to Sogyal Rinpoche / Abuse allegations

... it causes problems, suffering, and no enlightenment. But done correctly it is the gateway to the Vajrayana, so it shouldn't be eliminated. Now karmamudra, which is for extremely advanced practitioners, could probably be discontinued. There's a whole lot more problems with it than actual benefit. ...

This practice involves relying on either actual women as a seal of behavior (las-kyi phyag-rgya, Skt. karmamudra) visualized as female Buddha-figures so as to avoid confusion, or, for those of more refined faculties, merely visualized ones alone as a ...

If Sogyal was a monk, the standard would be more clear. Lol, we had a lengthy thread about monastic vows and karmamudra practice a while back. Let's not revisit it. But in any case a court isn't going to worry about the clergyman's vows. ...since this is a religious organization ...
