Re: Scary Liberal Views and Policy Positions?

Yet the rape of over 1400 girls in one town alone was the consequence of decisions made by mainly members of a Labour council as well as progressively minded decison makes within social services, media and the police. Ummmmm... I do believe the rapists had something to do with it? Yes. But it was k...

Re: Football World Cup.

Referees did a disappointingly poor job with overseeing the penalties:

This image shows Russian goalkeeper being nowhere near the goal line, which is where they should be when taking a penalty.

Re: An Unusual Prayer...

Perhaps the subject matter caused me to lose my sense of humour. I never had the experience of being separated from my parents..or from my kids..but the idea of it happening to others saddens me deeply. The idea that somebody with children is doing it to other children is even more bewildering... T...

Re: Crazy Wisdom

I don't believe I mentioned pregnant tigers. In the example with the tigers the idea is that to ride a pregrant tiger is more difficult (and as a consequence you need more siddhis) as oposed to riding a non-pregnant tiger where you just need to be tottally insane or a completly ordinary person like...

Re: CTR, polygamy, cocaine, etc: Discuss

It's worth pointing out again, that the term "crazy wisdom" in English, with its Tibetan equivalent term "ye shes chol ba" are both inventions of Chogyam Trungpa. The Tibetan term does not exist in any Tibetan works, nor is it a term that is used by Tibetan teachers in Tibet, either in the past or t...

Group F today was Fantastic. So, Sweden beat Mexico 3-0 which was not the result I wanted for Mexico, but South Korea destroyed the Germans in the last minutes. Was really great to see.

Re: Advaitin vs. Buddhist takes on awareness/reality

Neither existing nor not-existing is an extreme? But doesn't the Madhyamaka view hold that things cannot be said to exist, not-exist, both, or neither? And surely the view is not an extreme ... ? These are the four ontological extremes: 1. Existence 2. Non-existence 3. Both existence and non-existe...

They seem to be trying to keep it on the DL.
Perhaps they have their reasons. But that makes it harder to plan and travel.

Re: Hair Cutting Days

When it comes to Tibetan astrology and the elements, I pay close attention what my teachers have to say on this, in particular and especially Chogyal Namkhai Norbu. ChNN has taught this to his students for many decades now. He has written a book on the subject matter for his students, a key to the T...

I'm watching on Telemundo and didn't catch what the commentators said, nor do I think my Spanish is good enough to identify what they said, but wasn't that penalty situation actually an offside right before? As in, the play that made the situation where the penalty occurred, should've been an offsid...

Re: Football World Cup.

Iceland disappointed today. They had plenty of chances in the first half, but come second half they just collapsed and Nigeria took over. To then get a legit penalty, as decided via VAR, only to blast the ball high over the bar, that is just depressing to watch. Brazil earlier were OK but I feel lik...

Re: Thoughts on Dzogchen without buddhism?

Here we go back on topic. Dzogchen without Buddhism, without an unbroken lineage of realization, transmission and practice is populated by demons and will break your heart, your mind and ruin your life. Correct. And like the saying goes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. People like t...
