Possibly you can arrive at what Pema Chödron call "no right, no wrong", and that is my whole point.
Oh yes, "I got mine" and screw everyone else.
That isn't really the feeling I get from her. I kind of get the feeling she got a good heart just like I know you have a good heart.

Re: Turning daily life into retreat

Of course allocating time to practice is not the same as boundaried retreat; due to constant distraction and concerns. Even so I'm interested in the possibility of accomplishing sadhana in daily life. How much time (and of course diligence, patience etc.) is needed to pull this off? Would one focus...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

You recognized the natural state "in dependence on the Guru" and spent 20 years applying the methods your Guru gave you and now he suddenly is no real Guru. What do you do? Leave and find a better guru. You can leave, you can find an other Guru, but you are still in great debt to the Guru that intr...

Re: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo & Lama Tsultrim Allione: Shambhala's Sakyong Mipham

This is absolutely irrelevant. What does Guruyoga have to do with this matter. It has a lot to do with it. Imagine that the Lama you feel introduced you to the nature of mind is suddenly called an abuser, what would you do? It is pretty strange that the discussion here not even touch on this subjec...

Edit: I know this is out of topic but if anyone has an idea what 'One thousand buddha empowerment' may be it would be useful. I think it may be a bad translation or something like that.
It's a 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara empowerment.
I don't think it is that.

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

According to ChNN, sems sde must be practiced in conjunction with regular creation and completion stage, that is the point I am making. Sems de, unlike man ngag sde, is not an independent system of practice. I never heard him say that, but I have no reason to don't believe you. Anyway the "man ngag...

Also, it has been mentioned before by Malcolm in a different thread, that at the end of a mahakalpa the realms empty from the hells upwards, leaving every single being in some kind of buddhahood, but when the next mahakalpa starts they lose that state.

In have no idea where you get this karma reset from, can you provide a quote? There is no way to avoid cause and effect not even at the end of a mahakalpa.

Re: What happens at the end of a mahakalpa?

I think you didnt't read the quotes carefully. The implication as it stands is that if you are not on the 16th bhumi by the end of the mahakalpa, you are frak along with everyone else connected to you. I just readed what was quoted, i'm sorry if I didn't get it all. there is no karma reset, that I ...
