Re: Kalu Rinpoche shocking news!

He just turned 21 and many things could be happening. What's going on could be the expression of wisdom appropriate to the circumstances. I was surprised when he said that his guru was not more than human. In fact his wisdom mind should be that of an Arya Bodhisattva. In fact HE Tai Situpa goes int...

Re: Kalu Rinpoche shocking news!

Re: Horrifying image of Tibetan Ani in self immolation

I must say anyone judging a nun for sacrifing herself for the tibetan cause are showing a complete lacking of understanding and a complete lack of balls. Being compassionate is not about cowardice or passivity. I hope anyone judging these desperate tibetans actions take a good look at themselves fro...

Re: Mantras

I developed trust in the power of mantra, when reciting "Om Amidewa Hri" created a hole in my fontanel.

In the context as to why I was doing it, that was a good thing.

Re: Zen and the dogma of non-duality

This is one of the reasons I find it very hard to know what we working towards in buddhism and impossible to explain to anyone else. All traditions are of buddhism are working towards the same goal, freedom from afflictions that are the cause of suffering. Some buddhist traditions, from Mahayāna on...

Re: I am the director of the documentary TULKU. Ask me anything.

Hi Gesar it's really nice that you take the time to do this I'm actually in favour of keeping the tulku system or at least doing everything to maintain it's authenticity. Maybe that's because I don't have much experience with Tibetan politics. However I do think that in the vayjarana it's absolutely...
