Re: Offering bowl water and pets

the author apparently just took that position. Yes, so it is not a proof that intention isn't the most important factor in karma. Why intention is so important is because if it wasn't then it was just be moral. For example most Christians don't think killing an animal to eat is a bad action and you...

Re: Offering bowl water and pets

The most important factor in karma then would be...? action regardless the intention? No, intention is the most important point. For some actions you might end up in jail but because of your intention was good no bad karma was accumulated. So there might be consequences even if it don't cause bad k...

Re: First rate translators in non-English European languages

Any idea when both will be available? And does one have to have the specific lung for it to be able to study/practice it? Not entirely sure when it will be available, and you should definitely get the lung for the tantra. Chögyal Namkhai Norbu gave the lung for it in May 2015. That was one of the f...

Re: Tibetan Lamas and wealth

If the Buddha renounced his fortune in search of the true path to the deathless, what is the purpose of surrounding multiple Lamas with incredible wealth and commodities since they are very young?

Re: First rate translators in non-English European languages

May I ask if having an effective English translation of the 17 Dzogchen Tantras, or the Yeshe Lama, is expected to facilitate western students to obtain total transmission of these teachings? They are not the same thing. Yeshe lama is a khrid yig, a meditation manual. For people that actually pract...

My understanding is that unintentional actions will still have some negative effect based on the story of Nagarjuna, in a past lifetime, chopping off the head of the ant. https://studybuddhism.com/en/advanced-studies/lam-rim/the-three-scopes/serkong-rinpoche-dialogues-with-students-about-lam-rim/ex...

Longchenpa translated it to Tibetan. As PSM say it can be found in other places.

Re: What makes the dream world "just" like the waking world ?

There are teachers/lamas who say the dream world is as real as the waking world, but how so? I never heard a teacher say that. I heard them say that this world is like a dream.
