Re: Sakya view about Dorje Legpa

I have also never read an opinion about it. For context, in Sakya Mahakala is an oath bound protector, he is also regarded as beyond samsara. The name “oath bound” is not a reliable indicator of the status of a given dharmapala—they are all oath bound. Is Panjaranata Mahakala the main dharmapala of...

According to Shinran one attains buddhahood instantaneously upon rebirth in sukhavati. It is both the easiest and fastest path in all of Dharma.

Re: Why choose Mahayana over Vajrayana?

To be honest, I actually think no Zen practitioner really cares much if Zen is called sutric or not, or how other traditions categorize its approach. Why should they? Zen is clear as to its own relationship with the sutras as well as its method. For example: If you study the sutra teachings, you ea...

Re: Shitro practice and Five Dhjani Buddhas

if you are applying Mingyur Dorje's shitro according to ChNN's transmission then in clock-wise sense: in front vajra, then buddha, ratna, padma, karma, to find vajra again. if one have capacity and can use colors is good, but name is a minucia. otherwise i don't know. Vairocana is in the center of ...

All of the anime series I mentioned are also dubbed in english.
I usually prefer subbed especially if a series isn't fully dubbed, also sometimes the dub just doesn't convey the emotions etc. There are of course exceptions.

Writing in Tibetan-when to stack?

So I was writing words from wylie into Tibetan script, and I came across sgra and saw it needs to be 'stacked'.
I was wondering if there are any clues to know when the letters should be modified? For instance if there is a R in the middle of a word as opposed to the end then it should be modified?
