Re: Harmful Speech

... But what about other methods, maybe Tonglen, or increasing Bodhicitta/Compassion? Or some method of transformation? This is definitly a good idea, but more good for them who practice than for them who spread hate speach. My teacher always explains, not even a Buddha can change a person who does...

Re: whatnow727 message to Lamas

Some of the comments might be worth engaging in. I'm a bit discouraged that the authors of that blog present themselves as experienced practitioners in a Tibetan tradition, but seem unclear regarding how to communicate effectively with Tibetan masters. Good point. My guru does not hesitate to expla...

Re: Is Dharma practice a struggle for you?

For me it depends on 'which practice'. As you (DGA) mentioned prostrations - they where quite a struggle for me. I never reached the point of joy, but I learned immense important attitudes by doing prostrations nevertheless. Right now I suffer from knee problems and as a result I struggle each day f...

Re: Working in the entertainment industry

In entertainment it is possible to do beneficial things for the people, produce good music or intelligent films. But there's also the path of evil - German folk music for example...

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...
