Re: World Chess Championship 2013

Watched this live, and it was pretty intense in certain phases. All in all a rather fun tournament. :)

Re: Garchen giving Ratna Lingpa's Vajrakilaya

Does the livestream start automatically at exact time? Because now there's an older video recorded being played.

Norwegian media has reported that Kasparov arrives in Chennai tomorrow, in all likelihood to give advice to Carlsen in this tournament, as a mentor.

Re: Do the cultural aspects of TB practice help or hinder us

If the tea I purchased was legit, and this I've done twice from two different sellers now, then I have to conclude that the tea most Tibetans use as the base for this drink is an inferior and low quality pu erh tea. To be brief, pu erh comes either as shou pu erh or as sheng pu erh. The difference i...

Re: Icelanders and their elves.

Norway too is flowing over with mythology, where you can read about creatures of the sea, creatures of the forests, creatures of the mountains, creatures living underground, and so on. And just as an example, in north Norway, more people than you'd think, will consider some of these beings before th...

Re: Buddha sculpted in Iron Age Norway

Stewart,

That is very interesting. If you or anybody else come across the Dudjom Rinpoche quote / article, I'd love hearing it in full. As well as the agate information.

Re: State of Buddhist Cultures when Vajrayana entered Tibet

It's not really recent at all, since the Oseberg excavation took place in 1904-05. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oseberg_ship http://www.vikingrune.com/2009/08/oseberg-buddha/ http://www.nordic-life.org/nmh/buddha.htm The find of a small statue doesn't indicate that there were practicioners of Buddhi...

Re: HH Karmapa UTD to teach 3 Principal Aspects of Path

Tsongkhapafan, Your remarks are so ignorant and laughable it's downright depressing. I understand you are with the NKT, and as such you follow their standard on how to be as secterian as possible, but this behaviour is not desirable, nor is it wanted here, as people have kindly asked you to stop. So...

Re: Buddhism is peaceful?

In another post KonchokZoepa, you stated you've practiced Buddhism for 2 years. So, for how many years have you studied Buddhism, including its history? You see, I ask because there's a lot of information to digest. A lot. And if we talk about Tibetan Buddhism, this in particular is a vast subject. ...

Re: Only Photo of Patrul Rinpoche

From Rigpa Wiki:

"Several websites feature a photograph purported to be of Patrul Rinpoche, but according to Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche when this same photo was shown to Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche he said that it is not Patrul Rinpoche himself, but one of his incarnations."

If it helps:

Email communication with Blue Gakyil confirms that it is indeed a closed webcast.

Re: Kalachakra in Dzogchen Community

It has not been taught often. I believe once, in 2004. But I am not sure if that was Changchub Dorje's Kalachakra terma, or Chogyal Namkhai Norbu's Kalachakra terma. This is for upcoming retreat: The present retreat is based on two treasure or terma teachings: one that belongs to the Anuyoga and tha...

Who are the "some Japanese scholars", and according to them, when is the "middle period", and when is the "later period"? Also, which earlier developments were preserve...
