Re: feeling happy

Sometimes, I'm happy out of nothing. But the same with sadness. Sometimes, I'm sad because of nothing. Sometimes people hurt me and I do not feel hurt. Sometimes I become very angry because of a tiny trigger - but fortunately this became less with age. I want to say: my state of emotional comfort is...

... nebenbei ... I love this dictionary, because it grows like Wikipedia: https://www.dict.cc/?s=nebenbei I would choose 'as a sideline' for nebenbei in this context. You can also push the loudspeaker symbol and listen to the correct pronounciation. Pronounciation in English has no logical rules. Y...

Dear White Sakura, warm welcome from Hannover. :smile: I cannot really help on your task, because I'm not a native English speaker. So, I simply hope you'll find some people to talk to in here.

Re: Authenticity of a quotation

Even my Tibetan Gelug teacher said something similar in his Lam Rim course. He said, meditation might be much more difficult for people in modern times now than it was for people in former times. But this circumstance makes our efforts much more valuable and effective. I think, he was speaking about...

Re: Is it rare to spew don’t time with you guru?

... Again, sorry if this offends anyone. At least I'm not offended. No criticism intended in my question, really. I was just thinking of all these Tibetans who are not able to see their guru often. And also myself... I can't live near to my teacher and I speak to him personally once a year or once ...

Re: 3 top NON Bhuddhist, Fiction Books you have read..in your LIFE

I can't judge which one I liked most and there are some more.

The Mistress of Spices - by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

To Kill a Mockingbird - by Harper Lee

Huckleberry Finn - by Mark Twain


And I love every book from Amy Tan, Erich Käster and Hans Bemmann.

Re: Is it rare to spew don’t time with you guru?

Can this effect take place by imagining the teacher was here as well? There are so many people who neither have a chance to live next next to their guru nor they can see him often. But they keep faith deeply.

Re: boring questions about losing weight

One has to change one's taste. Get used to healthy food, learn to avoid sugar, learn not to overeat,... Don't bother too much about food... And it is really helpfull to avoid starches and sugar after 12 o'clock a.m. I once lost 32 pounds within one year by eating vegetables for dinner only. But when...

Re: Falling sick from a practise?

Looking at the site link for Kailash Hause, in the about section, and under all the individual western people running the center or leading workshops, there is no reference to lineage. No reference to a Guru who gave the transmissions and guided any of these people. And the main founder Wilfried Pf...

Re: Falling sick from a practise?

In my personal experience, such difficulties arise due to aversion an anxiety. So, maybe this practice itself is quite okay but without full trust into the teacher, the group, the practice can't work properly. Possibly your aversion has good reasons which are not fully conscious to yourself yet. But...
