If preliminary practices stress you, then you should probably NOT be practicing Vajrayana.
What should we do in this case? Having received empowerments already. Can Vajrasattva take me to the Pure Land?

Thanks. So the very first session ended with the lung, right?
Yep, that's right.
I didn't get whole lung. I missed beginning of lung. I got only ending of lung.

Re: Charging for Dharma

My point is that no one has any cause to complain. Good point. And as more than one Vajrayana Lama has said, "Vajrayana is not a democracy." There are Dharma paths where the consensus of the group is key and there are those others. To each their own desire. Vajrayāna is also not socialist. Vajrayān...

Do you think we wouldn't be better off if Shakyamuni Buddha were still physically present with us today? Or if Guru Rinpoche was still physically present with us?
Nope, because we would not take impermanence to heart.

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

According to ChNN, sems sde must be practiced in conjunction with regular creation and completion stage, that is the point I am making. Sems de, unlike man ngag sde, is not an independent system of practice. Why is that so that it has to be paired with creation and completion stage? One cannot atta...

Thus means you think you have no samaya. But if you have samaya, you have a guru since former is dependent on the latter.

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...
