Re: Understanding Intoxicants in Buddhism

I happened to pick up the "Dictionary of Buddhism" by Keown last night, and the very first entry is this: Description: abhabba-ṭṭhāna (Pāli, impossibility). List of nine things of which an Arhat is said to be morally incapable. These are (1-4) breaking the first four of the Five Precepts (pañca-śīla...

Re: The Pureland of Green Tara?

It is mentioned several times in this book:
http://www.amazon.com/Delog-Journey-Rea ... 8177690930
but if I recall correctly there is not much detail.

Here is another reference:
http://www.yulokod.ca/buddhas.htm
I think the passage quoted there is from the book above.

Re: Dzogchen in English

Thanks for the input everybody. I happened to look at the Padmakara group's "Treasury of Precious Qualities" by Jigme Lingpa and Kangyur Rinpoche today and I found this as the first paragraph in the forward by HHDL: The view of the Great Perfection (Dzogchen) is difficult and profound. The main text...

I like the published lectures of Lopon Tenzin Namdak. Extremely clear.
Are you referring to "Bonpo Dzogchen Teachings"?

Probably not in English but it exists in French (unpublished yet though) since 1995.
French is ok too. May I ask who the translator is, and if it is available?

Re: Dzogchen in English

What do you mean by complete? Well, I don't really know. It's just that often when reading Dzogchen discussions I feel like I am missing some basic information, and I was wondering if there was some systematic presentation I could consult. I think you recently mentioned 4 of Longchenpa's treasuries...

Re: Dzogchen in English

Probably the best 2 intro books are Dzogchen the Self Perfected State and The Crystal and the Way of Light , both by Namkhai Norbu. The great news is, if after these books you find you would like to practice Dzogchen, the author teaches frequently all around the world, and most of his teachings are...

This might be a stupid question, but it is a sincere one. Is there anything like a complete, accurate presentation of Dzogchen available in English? That's a tough multi-layered question. Are you looking for a beginners guide to the view of Dzogchen? A manual of all the core practices? Something in...

Re: Illusory body /rainbow body after death and rebirth

Yeah but in Nyingma we have all these tulkus like Anam Thubten whose prior incarnations took rainbow-body.. I suppose either they are considered purely emanations not rebirths? Any thoughts? Are you referring to Anam Thubten of Richmond, CA? I'm curious, who is considered to be his previous incarna...

Re: Dzogchen and Buddhism

Hi Malcolm, you've used this phrase, or similar ones, before:
"phenomena are completely equivalent with illusions" and I've always wondered if that has a different
meaning for you, or for the text being translated, than
"phenomena are illusions", and, if not, why is the word "equivalent" used?
