Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

Here is the link stating contents of the cave..... http://173.201.176.156/content/news/2012/04/26/261030 .. from the local newspaper. I am certainly no detective but this really only makes sense if the death was a congenital heart disorder or they were fasting but not hydrating. Since she was dehydr...

Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

DBH.....this..."There are lineages where no one has died during retreat in 1000 years, which means ever. "

Since some in Tibetan
buddhism engage in lifelong retreats ...did you mean perhaps none has died in 3 year retreats?

Re: arthritis, disc disease

To be clear..SME I reference taking(only after checking with your doc) is S-Adenosyl-L Methionine, or SAMe available in vegetarian form at health food stores or on the internet.

It assists joints.

Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

No charges of any sort were preferred in this incident of death it seems. Water was to be tested to determine if it contained some bad things. As no reports were forthcoming I'd suppose nothing untoward was found. His woman companion was treated for dehydration and released. Food and water were pres...

Re: Finding a teacher when you dislike interaction

Yes...if this is a retreat center also... just dropping in may not be preferred. So I would call...if they do not want to be bothered they will have it on call forwarding or answering machine. This is less obtrusive then just dropping in. Then ask them when may I drop by. Emails...yes they may not c...

Re: Is My Job Wrong Livelihood?

Agreeing with that comment above.... the question always is....is it wrong for us. It is always person, who exactly is doing this living attached to live/li/hood. To ask the question, If I would so ask the question would be the answer enough for me......why did I ask the question if it right for me?...

Re: Death at Tibetan Buddhist meditation retreat in Arizona

This teacher, guessing from the comments here....sounds pretty suspect. I don't of course know this person who died nor the teacher. Fair I'd say to critique his teachings and all the rest. The death? People die all the time for all sorts of reasons to include karmic predisposition which is very ver...

Re: Hell in Tibetan Buddhism

I look at it this way....and don't think a strictly approach of scholorship with this thing works. We have in tibetan buddhism a play such as in association with liberation through hearing, stateing hell as a real concrete place. This play being performed for the general tibetan public, at group gat...

This...." Logically, the hell realms must be as real as the realm we're in now, or the bodhisattvas wouldn't have the choice of rebirth in hell realms in order to help the beings there" ... is a excelllent point.

Re: Hell in Tibetan Buddhism

Some have said that for all the realms there is a buddha for each realm. AS to liberation through hearing, and associated texts, hell seems to be refered to as a real place of rebirth. I have heard the issue of the hell guardians discussed before but forget the outcome. Could the place be real and t...
