Re: Narak Kong Shak Questions

Do all Nyingma accept the validity Narak Kong Shak? Thank you. Strange question. Why, do you believe, that it would not be accepted? It seems to contradict The Treasury of Knowledge: Book Five: Buddhist Ethics and Perfect Conduct: Ascertaining the Three Vows about the time limit to repair samaya. B...

As an aside (to the topic) - i thought empowerments were until Buddhahood; not just for this life.
I remember Malcolm saying here before that since empowerments are taken onto the body, they only last for this lifetime. Like pratimoksha vows, but unlike bodhisattva vows.
So do I.

Ayang Rinpoche's Vajrasattva

Hi everyone,

Is anyone familiar with the post-meditation visualization instructions for Ayang Rinpoche's Vajrasattva?

If so, please private message me. I received this in 2018.

Thank you.

Re: Oral Transmission

I asked an SMS instructor. My understanding is that an oral transmission is not just about the words spoken, but depends entirely on the realization of the master. Basically, the process is initiated by someone with realization, or else oral transmission is just a name without any function. Furtherm...

Re: Recovering from Trauma

I've been doing a lot of reflecting. Trying to piece together when I messed up in Vajrayana.... I was doing this a lot right before my meltdown... trying to fit everything perfectly into a neat box. I definitely regret all of the stupid shit. But I don't know what else I could have did. I had such s...

Re: Recovering from Trauma

To Echo and add a few things. First; Try and stay sober for a while. I had 'episodes' induced by weed and delusions when I was younger and a few others seemed to come out of nowhere later in my life, but undoubedtly due to my lifestyle and the conditioning of my nervous system. The truth is that if...

Re: Recovering from Trauma

If this was your motivation, then the actions you are planning would be fine. But it is quite clear that this is not your motivation. Please explain. I am sure you can figure it out yourself. I will. OK now I understand oral transmission, thanks to one of the SMS instructors, and that I never had t...

Re: Recovering from Trauma

issuing ultimatums, planning humiliation, etc... Does this sound like the compassionate motivation we try to cultivate as the basis for the path? If your parents behave in a toxic way towards to you then of course it is okay to create some distance but our fundamental practise of this life should b...

Re: Recovering from Trauma

Honestly, I did so much reading before I entered Tibetan Buddhism and got the best Lamas so this exact thing wouldn't happen. Your teacher's are not to blame for what you did to yourself. You chose to execute the particular actions. Follow your teacher's advice. You are right. ChNNR has passed. Mal...
