Re: Defilements and projections onto other people

Yup and the mind of a Christian is the same as the mind of a  Buddhist, but a Christian will (use their mind) to attribute existence to God, will claim an eternal soul and will posit that religious fulfilment consists of going to heaven and playing a harp all day.  Should we also accept that analys...

Re: Defilements and projections onto other people

Firstly, this is a Buddhist forum and the question was posted in the section "way of the bodhisattva" subsection "exploring BUDDHISM ".  Buddhism has Abhidharma to explain the workings of mind (basic function of thought), it does not need Jungian psychoanalysis Jungian psychology just happens to be...

Re: Defilements and projections onto other people

Speaking of "new age" teachers; anyone interested in more projection themed discourses and teachings should check out Byron Katie, all of her work is based on projection. She has a simple 4 step process for identifying projection and turning it around to reveal the source within yourself. She calls ...

Re: Defilements and projections onto other people

Dimitri Halley is a new age psychologist/psychotherapist, not a Buddhist, thus it comes as no surprise that the videos confused you. Firstly, his question was about projection. Not Buddhist projection, not non-Buddhist projection. Anything this Dimitri guy is saying applies to the basic function of...

Re: Defilements and projections onto other people

I have to admit I'm a bit confused about how to use this information about observation, though I find it fascinating. All this is diametrically opposed to how we normally view things so it's a bit of a mental wrestling match to make sense of it. Is this the gist of the idea in Buddhist terms? It's ...

Which Of The 17 Dzogchen Tantras Have Been Published?

Which of the 17 Dzogchen tantras have been translated and published? And if so what books are they available in? Partial or complete(by partial I mean a considerable amount, not an excerpt). I know some are in the Precious Treasury collection by Longchenpa and #12 is translated by Keith Dowman in hi...

Re: Defilements and projections onto other people

I think we can avoid being drawn to our thoughts and emotions, but we can not stop them from happening. So we let the thoughts arise and return the mind to stillness, no? You're right you cannot stop them from happening, but what does this fact imply? Why can't you control them? Inquire into the ex...

Re: Defilements and projections onto other people

I don't think it's applicable in every situation, but for example when we see police brutality, and we find ourselves angry and maybe even thinking violent thoughts in response, how could this be if anger isn't a problem in our own mind? Or when we see someone who is exceedingly arrogant, and we do...

Re: Defilements and projections onto other people

One of the ways projection happens is the ego's (or thought based sense of identity) tendency to ensure it's own perfection and innocence by projecting problems and defilements onto the other/world as separate causes, as a victim of these causes. The ego does not like to admit wrong, or weakness or ...

I've been wondering what the name of this mantra or song is for awhile now and was wondering if anyone could help? I have another recording of this song at the end of a teaching on mahamudra and it's beautifully sung, it's actually sung so powerfully that even my 3 year old is captivated by it and l...

Thank you for the explanation. Is it possible they would work even if I don't really have any real understanding of it? I received transmission, yes. I have attended retreats, yes.

Wait so what's the controversy?! I know there's no way everyone is agreeing right now... If that were to happen the Internet might violently implode inwards upon itself infinitely, swallowing the universe.

The basis is a convention isn't it? the word "basis" is a convention, the basis is not. It's only the basis from the perspective of non-recognition, because the "basis" is in fact is self-originated wisdom(emptiness).

Re: Awakening compassion dzogchen style?

There are some kinds of nastiness that aren't motivated by moral outrage. The sadist, as an extreme example, takes pleasure in harming others just because he likes it. Right but why is this? Because they suffer from afflictions derived from ignorance. A lot of sadistic acts are predicated on power....
