Re: TRUCK FUMP

Given a failure in compassion for the jerk, what would you like to happen to Trump? To attain buddhahood ASAP. Before that I would like him to be sentenced to forced labor, such as cleaning up oil spills, planting trees to combat deforestation, funding schools in poor areas, building libraries, and...

Re: So, Anthony Bourdain...

Thanks, but really, the press is full of stuff about him I'm not bothering to read. I'm sure for his family it is terrible, but that's true for the many thousands of others who died in the last day or two. I often see someone dying in my life or through the media and some will affect me, and some w...

Re: Circumcision

Oh my. :rolling: I think it is a hygiene issue mostly from a medical standpoint. Kevin... It's interesting that it's suggested by some to be a hygiene issue. What kind of problems do people have with hygiene if they need to chop off a part of their genitalia to somehow get better hygiene? Whatever ...

Re: Dharma Wheel (Engaged)

The emphasis at DWE will be engaged Buddhism, so political and news discussions need to incorporate some aspect of Dharma. The forum is both Theravada and Mahayana, so there will be a variety of views. Some interesting conversations have started. I hope that members from Dharmawheel will visit and ...

Re: Symptoms Before Vajra Hell

I asked from him which is best purification practice. He gave short mantra. He is Nyingma. I wonder why it differs from Gelug version. Can I be Gelugpa, if I follow TDR and ChNN? I don't understand the "problem" you have here. You asked your teacher, he gave you a short mantra. Why don't you just p...

What if you can't arrange or get to tsogs? Only Dharma Center which arrange tsogs moved far away. Last time I participate was 2 years ago. 35 buddhas? But I can't do it daily.

Re: Symptoms Before Vajra Hell

Breaking samaya can be easy to do. Fixing samaya is just as easy and a hell of a lot of fun too: You invite around all your yogi and yogini friends and give them loads of alcohol and meat, sing songs, dance and during the party some of them may even get laid. What if you can't arrange or get to tso...

Alright, thanks.
I haven't read Cabezon's so I cannot compare, however The Chodung Karmo version is very readable if that's worth anything.
Thanks. I'll probably get it somewhere down the line.
