Re: Why is compassion central to Buddhism?

If you truly understand that all things, independently from their grossness or subtleness, are interconnected and constantly permeating (hence impermanent), the need for compassion is the directly inferable logic. What you take as yourself can only be helped when others are helped. Compassion howeve...

I wasn't addressed (neither in time nor in person) yet let me refer to this quote, recommended for further reading Since they cannot be separated, kadag is the emptiness aspect of lhundrup; and lhundrup is the form aspect of kadag. https://vividness.live/2015/11/27/emptiness-form-and-dzogchen-ethics/

Re: Dzogchen Practice in Everyday Life

Alone this might not have mattered too much, but in the Sham bhala Sun of September 1998 and subsequently in the Shambhala Sun website up to the present day, a new version of the text appeared, full of arbitrary, idiosyncratic editorial changes. The Vajra version with its errors was used as the bas...

Re: three year retreat experiences?

Retreat is like life. You just know what it's like for you if you do it. And you face whatever is occurring. But maybe you have less patterns to cope or evade the occurrences when in retreat, hence the strong experiences. However, if serious effort is made (or if the occurrence is big enough), you c...

Re: DJKR letter to Aung San Suu Kyi

The way DJKR repeatedly rambles about the West shows clearly the schism he has in mind, a pattern positioning "his kind" as good or victimized, "the other" as bad and perpetrating. It doesn't matter how much of this is right or not. He is a lineage holder and protector of the Dharma. These actions v...

To paraphrase Garrison Keillor, sometimes good fortune consists not of getting what you want but getting what you need, and having the good sense to realize that this is what you would have wanted at the outset if you had known more about yourself.
Nice one.

Whoever strives to practise Dharma finds not the truth beyond the practise.

Re: Is Dharma practice a struggle for you?

A deep trust for the Dharma became an almost all-pervading driving force. My practise as informal as it is became an integration into all ways of my living and being ("Dharma practice moment-to-moment" as you DGA call it). Some situations work better than others, but coping with that is part of the ...

This said, I wonder how us ordinary people hear about the result of such judgement in said general reticence. The result of such letter may help, disre...
