Lineage heads make good starter lamas.
Any lineage heads that give teachings on a regular basis in North America?
His holiness Sakya Trichen.
Awesome, thanks. :cheers:

Wrathful deities

1. What would be some of the pros and cons for practicing with a wrathful deity?

2. Does one achieve quicker progress with them as opposed to peaceful deities?

3. Are wrathful deities suited more for people who possess deeper afflictions?

Re: Human, you are not necessary.

With respect to this, if one agree with the goals of an army, i.e., support the killing in which it engages, one accrues the negative karma of killing one person, times the number of people in the organization. For example, if a mob of 100 lynches someone, everyone in that mob who agrees with and s...

Re: Human, you are not necessary.

When you are feeding people and patching them up specifically so that they can be more effective at killing. When you are integral part of the killing machine/process. Nothing exists in a vacuum, yah know? Karma is a personal thing. If the killing isn't done themselves then it isn't wrong livelihoo...

Re: Human, you are not necessary.

Karma is a personal thing. If the killing isn't done themselves then it isn't wrong livelihood. A cook or medic doesn't kill so therefore no negative karma accrued. That's all I'm going to say about it, done with this thread. Gibberish. Selling weapons is also considered wrong livelihood and a pers...

Re: Human, you are not necessary.

There aren't really many options out there for lower income people in the states. It isn't like Norway or Sweden where everyone has a chance to get ahead. That is a pretty poor excuse to engage in Wrong Livelihood. A minute ago (in another thread) you were talking about the definitive nature of The...

Re: Human, you are not necessary.

Military option is always there. It offers free college, healthcare and stable jobs that arent directly involved in killing.Not a bad way to earn a living and climb up the socio economic ladder. Oh look, a disclaimer. How cute. There aren't really many options out there for lower income people in t...

Re: Human, you are not necessary.

I guess the US has unique history in regards to the cult of the individual and it has its pros and cons.

No, what we need is unrestricted immigration, more globalization, and shittier wages/working conditions for the jobs that are left. Get with the program.
