Re: Western Monastic - reasons why she left

Just saw this on FB and it reminded me of this thread:

The missing 'l' is somewhat disturbing, but it's still kind of funny.

A Shambhala person in Boulder immolated himself over this crisis. Hard to understand, very sad.
OMG. You sure? No hits from Google yet.
Yes, quite sure.

I didn't hear about the immolation part but there's quite a bit of talk about the suicide on the Shambhala FB group.

Re: "You need to know Tibetan to achieve enlightenment in this life"

FWIW, when discussing the Vajra Guru mantra in "A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar" Thinley Norbu Rinpoche has this to say: In this mantra, OM AH HUNG BENZAR GURU PEMA SIDDHI HUNG, the HUNG has a small circle that means it has the sound of the Tibetan MA or English M, which would be said as HUM, but i...

Re: "You need to know Tibetan to achieve enlightenment in this life"

What to make of this? It needs to be seen in the context of the relationship between an individual teacher and his student. He may have given a very different answer to another student. In which case it means nothing for anybody except the person it was said to. So what is it's relevance to this di...

Re: "You need to know Tibetan to achieve enlightenment in this life"

Anyone have any thoughts on this? You need to learn three languages actually. The language of your own body, the language of your own speech, and the language of your own mind. If you can also learn Tibetan, that is good. Kevin... I think most people know the language of their own speech already.

Re: "You need to know Tibetan to achieve enlightenment in this life"

Setting aside "enlightenment in this life" it would be interesting, although perhaps not really feasible, to compile a list of westerners who have actually attained some degree of realization by practicing in a Tibetan lineage and see if there was any correlation with how much Tibetan they had studi...

Re: Western Monastic - reasons why she left

It goes without saying if one wants to be a pro gambler one would have to find a teacher and train (until your eyes bleed). Now my point with this example was IF one uses ones adult mind one can devise solutions that go beyond praying. A zen laundering business might make a good choice for many nga...

Re: Western Monastic - reasons why she left

Well, he didn't tell him to stop gambling either. Don't talk nonsense. He didn't tell him not to stick red hot pokers in his eyes either... The point is, chill. I am chilled. The point is: Don't use Dharma to justify your afflictions. Very good, but may I suggest that you are insufficiently chilled?

He didn't advise him to continue gambling, he advised him on how to utilise the energy of the affliction, in order to liberate rather than enslave himself.

Re: Western Monastic - reasons why she left

I might. It’s something I’ve been working very diligently to master. Something interesting I learned from pro traders is they usually are really cool under pressure; usually are very honest and self aware; patient and generous. Many of them seem like natural Buddhas to me. I'm fairly sure that if t...

Re: Western Monastic - reasons why she left

I'm fairly sure that if they had that kind of thing back in the day there would have been at least one day trader in that list of mahasiddhas. I’m pretty sure one of them was a gambler I know he was a tirthika, but if I recall correctly Robert Svoboda's guru was pretty deep into horse racing.

Just an example by the way. My point is to get creative and make time and money can create ones own auspicious conditions. Dude, you should totally set up a day trading school for tantrikas. I might.
