Re: The Third Eye

I would absolutely love to have a teacher, but I'm finding it hard to find one. There are Dharma centers within Toronto, but I lack ...

Re: The Third Eye

You are not restricting yourself by doing those practices. They are the highest practices you can do. Sadly there is no third eye.It was just an experience that took you away somewhere.

Re: The Third Eye

Standard Vajrayana answwer #1: Don't mess around with practices you find on the internet, they can cause you immense harm, find a qualified teacher to give you some real practices before you screw up your mental health.
