Re: Question

What deities or sadhanas would be most effective in countering a curse where someone called upon Santa Muerte? I'm asking for future reference. For background, Santa Muerte is a Central American death goddess who is very popular in Mexico and among those who are from Mexico. Considering that Santa ...

Re: What Tsongkhapa said

Tsongkhapa on the other hand attacked fellow Buddhists for having what he decided were wrong views. But he was somewhat polite about it, and kind. His disciple, Kaydrup, on the other hand as neither polite, nor kind. The polemical climate in Tibet was not Tsongkhapa's fault of course. He was follow...

Re: What Tsongkhapa said

In fact, Tsongkhapa started it by attacking the views of others. Thus, it is normal that others will respond. The Lord Buddha repeatedly criticized fire worship, holy war, and animal sacrifice as worthless and sinful. Tsongkhapa on the other hand attacked fellow Buddhists for having what he decided...

Re: What Tsongkhapa said

It is normal. The Gelugpas engaged in the suppression of other religion traditions for centuries. This is not a very mature position. I agree that the tone of attacks on the Gelug position here is often off-putting, and the fact that Gelugs supressed the views of others is also off putting, one doe...

Re: What Tsongkhapa said

Thank you Kenneth, That is nicely stated. And what happens when we now apply rational analysis to this observed object. It seems as though this observed object would then be vaporized as well, leaving not a scrap behind. “When reasoning searches to whether the chariot intrinsically exists, it is no...

Re: What Tsongkhapa said

Maybe I’m stubborn or too timid, but I’m still working on the “pure vessel” bit, using the sutra methodology. I resolved at the beginning of my journey not to rush it but rather to try and get it right. I realize there comes a time when I have to take a substantial step, and that death imposes a ce...

Re: What Tsongkhapa said

I know nothing except that Adzom Drukpa slandered LTK's view until he read the Lam Rim Chen Mo and then stated that LTK's approach is 1. a unique view that is fully compatible with Dzogchen and 2. as it's unique, it was created by a sublime being. Also that Shabkar recited the Migtsema prayer to LTK...

Re: Song of the Spring Queen

If I remember correctly, the author you mention as Changkya Dorjechang is the third Changkya, Rolpai Dorje. The song is sung after tasting the tsog to enhance bliss. Because it has a very secret meaning, commentaries are probably not available publically. Lama Zopa Rinpoche makes a few remarks abou...

Re: Song of the Spring Queen

I don't have so many resources on this at hand. But I can share a few things. The song appears in three tsok practices I'm familiar with, that is guru puja, fpmt's heruka vajrasattva from lama yeshe, and the VY tsok from Pabongka Rinpoche . In that one according to Pabongka, one either sings the so...

I think it was written from the panchen lamas own visions of the deitys.
Thank you! I'll be looking forward to it.

It is beautiful. My New Year's Resolution is to memorize the tune and words.

Song of the Spring Queen

Do anyone have information on this liturgy from the Guru Puja? History, benefits, etc.

All I know is that it is by "Chang-kya Dro-je Chang" and also known as 'A Song to Move the Dakinis' Hearts'.

Thank you.

Re: How do I reconcile compassion and immense need?

One of the wonderful things about Buddhism is its complexity. How so many things are never stated outright but work without being noticed. In the Lam Rim , one practices Renunciation before Altruism. One of the reasons for this is to first accept that you can't fix the universe. It is inherently suf...
