Best way to print pictures for shrine?

I have a photo from the HAR website that I want printed on sturdy material. I want it the size of regular photo frame. Any tips on a good place to get this gone but keep the quality?

Re: Decreased interest in Tantric practice

Re: Getting the MOST out of ngondro

There seem to be some traditions where they focus bit more on the number of prostrations really. Especially it seems to be like that in Karma Kagyu (please correct me if I am wrong). In some other traditions, such as Drikung Kagyu, there are some instructions that prostrations are good idea even wh...

Re: Decreased interest in Tantric practice

It may swing back the other way one day, this is just where I'm at, and was wondering if others have been here. I swing back and forth between elaborate and exceedingly unelaborate. It just depends where one is, what feels most conducive and they're level of comfort. If one's a dzogchenpa, everythi...

Re: Decreased interest in Tantric practice

When the honeymoon phase is over is when one decides how and in what way they want the relationship to go.
Some don't make it past the honeymoon with the dharma.

How y'all like my analogies? :shrug:

Re: Kyabje Jigten Sumgon's protection wheel

I know you're asking Cone, but I only asked if I could practice this by itself mainly because I don't practice five fold mahamudra. So probably if one is a Drikungpa it may not serve as a main practice cause there's complete practice cycles in that lineage. Umm, did you forget about Uṣṇīscakravarti...

That is really interesting, I did not know about it. Thanks for making this thread. :thumbsup: I think it's connected to Cakrasamvara as presented by the Drikung Lineage.

Re: Subtle body in Dzogchen

How would it require Longsal transmission? Be good to get some clarification on this. This practice would require the transmission of the Longsal Saltong Lung, which is exactly what ChNN gave back in 1998, 2000, 2001, 2003, and 2006 (also in closed webcast). Is it the same practice from the seventh...
