Re: The dukha of student loans.

I wouldn't say that people are so uneducated, but they are stuck. If you don't come from a family of means, you have no choices but to either get student loans and go to a public university, getting a hopefully middle class job after; or don't get student loans, and work low paying blue collar jobs...

the right phenomena at the right place ... always

I am often surprized to see that even intelligent beings miss to understand that all phenomena displayed in front of them belong to there own karma, even if they do not like those phenomena. And that they are the right phenomena, at the right place, at the right moment.

Re: Knee pain.

hello Josh, It seems you are not a new comer in sitting meditation, and apparently it's only a couple of month it happens ... not before, so it's not the question of "let it go". So the only right answer is to go to see a specialist (maybe a sport doctor) because it certainly has a physical cause. ....

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

Of course Rigpa is without any other needs. But interpreting that to mean that methods like yidam and guru yoga is unnecessary for a person without stability in the natural state is a bit strange. /magnus I did'nt say it's unnecessary for a person without stability ... my point is one often call Dz...

Re: The dukha of student loans.

I'm no more in age to get a loan (at all). But as far as I can remember, students when they wanted to pursue studies shared there time half for uni half for work, so they were financing them self ... and it works, and it brought them freedom from establishment. But that was another period of time. A...

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

Hello magnus, It's not my own opinion, as I comment it, you can found all those references in the "Practice of Dzogchen" by Longchen Rabjam. But my opinion is that it seems quite evident ... Dzogchen is the path and the fruit at the same time. The nature of the Basis is, primordially pure essence (...

Welcome aboard Sonam! That's cool that you practice in both the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions. Those are the ones which interest me the most. That's also cool that you're French.
