Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Weinstein:

One can reflect one’s daily behavior and thoughts in evening to know it. But there are ways to purify them. There are three ways to restore degenerated or broken samayas: receiving four the empowerment again, self-empowerment with concluding fire ritual, and one hundred thousand times Vajrasattva. ...

Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Weinstein:

Regarding the samaya of not having sex with non-practitioners: What are those of us who have relationships with non-practitioners to do, divorce or otherwise leave our partners? We're told that being Buddhist is a matter of karma and thus, we don't proselytize and convert others if they don't have ...

Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Wienstein:

In what tantra does it instruct students to willingly submit to sexual abuse? I don't think the tantras recognized "sexual abuse." but sexual acts with women are in there. The tantras very clearly recognize the existence of sexual misconduct, and samaya breakage through relying on unripened partner...

But nowhere does this mean they will abuse and hurt sentient beings physically, sexually, or psychologically. Never.
In that case, why did Tilopa hurt fishes?

Re: Crazy Wisdom

Whatever we might think of Ngagpa Chogyam..and he quite clearly occupies the thinking of some people a lot..there has never been any suggestion, not even a whiff, of impropriety. Even from those who would be pleased to see him traduced. So as long as a self-proclaimed guru does not shag their stude...

Re: CTR, polygamy, cocaine, etc: Discuss

There is the argument, which has been mentioned in other similar threads, that you can tell whether something is actually 'crazy wisdom' by the results. If someone is hurt or driven to suicide for example, it is not enlightened activity. This makes sense of course. On the other hand, I was just rem...

Re: About requesting initiation

Hi Pael,   It will be much easier and cheaper for you to attend an already organized Vajrasattva empowerment, even if this involves travelling etc..   I am sure that, with strong aspiration prayers and diligent searching, you will find one ! By the way: In which country do you live ? Regards  M Fin...

Re: Is the motivator a demotivator?

Gods travel throught world on those moon days. They rejoice when they see that you practice. So, you give them merit as gift. You do more good. At least in Theravada.

This Sukhavati aspiration prayer contains a confession including samaya violations.
Luckily this is translated in my language (Finnish). I recite it sometimes. This brings me hope. But, I can't do it daily. I have weak voice.

Re: Pure Land practice and Vajrayana (HYT)

Watch if you are not too limiting yourself. Anyway keep your samayas pure and you will get a good rebirth. So do the deity you had the initiation on. Or maybe just vajrasattva to keep samayas pure. I wish prerequisite for any initiation were reading WOMPT. They didn't tell me about vajrasattva at b...

Re: Pure Land practice and Vajrayana (HYT)

Yes, ask a teacher who gave/will give you inner tantra initiation. There is always a way. Well, as far as I understant it the outer tantra is here for those who are not yet ready for inner tantra, mahayana sutra is here for those who are not ready for outer tantras, and hinayana sutras are here for...

There are many methods of purification, some of which you must already have.

Difficulties to meet with one's Teacher

I have difficulties to meet with my Vajrayana Teachers. One is Shakya Trizin. I can't travel. One Teacher who lives in my country is far away. I'm not sure when I can ask him few questions. What I can do meanwhile? I think I have done all these years only a lip service. I don't know when I can ask t...

Re: Pure Land practice and Vajrayana (HYT)

Maybe not highest yoga tantra but some of the outer tantras would be better since you are interested in outer power? I have received inner tantra transmission already. Can you practice inner and outer at same time? Can outer tantra resolve problems with inner tantra? Yes, ask a teacher who gave/wil...
