Re: Another Topic of molesting female practitioner

Update from FPMT and Rinpcohe's advice: Dagri Rinpoche has for many years been one of the Tibetan teachers on FPMT’s Tibetan Teachers List. The Indian police last week received a formal complaint from a woman who was on a commercial airline flight with Dagri Rinpoche in India, accusing Dagri Rinpoch...

Interesting. I was unable to find Dagri Rinpoche listed as a 'Touring Lama' on fpmt.org. I guess a search still will link to his bio page.

Re: Another Topic of molesting female practitioner

FPMT appears to have scrubbed Dagri Rinpoche from the website. I would not expect to
hear any kind of direct messaging, regarding the said accusations surrounding Dagri Rinpoche, from Lama Zopa any time soon as
he is currently conducting teachings, retreat and intitaitions in France.

Re: Another Topic of molesting female practitioner

Ugh. Whole range of emotions here from sadness to real distress. One center that is hosting Dagri Rinpoche have posted (what would seem to be an alternate explanation) for why Dagri Rinpoche will be delayed in his schedule.

Re: Geshe Sopa's Work

I am currently reading these texts at the instruction of my Guru. I have read and received teachings on a fair amount of the Lam Rim literature and Geshe Sopa's is excellent and is quite extensive in explanation. This is a great text at any level of practice. The only downside is it is one of the lo...

Re: Shabkar Tshogdruk Rangdrol

Can you say more on who and when Zarongfu Sangya Ngawang Tenzin Rinpoche was? Never heard of this Rinpoche. One would have to ask HE Shyalpa Rinpoche, Lama Zopa Rinpoche or a more senior/ knowledgable student than myself. This is in the Colophon at the end of the text as published by FPMT. It state...

Re: Question about Nagarjuna's Heart of Dependent Origination

Maybe the 4th stanza describes the valid way to see them? Is that nominal existence/designation? Yes, I believe that is correct. However, I am not sure that the 4th stanza is necessarily explicit in the sense that it says that they exist as a "mere designation," "merely labeled by mind," or "in mer...

Re: Question about Nagarjuna's Heart of Dependent Origination

I might be wrong, but I am pretty sure that this stanza points to the following-- If one refutes the aggregates, if one refutes their conventional existence, thus perceiving them as non-existent--this is nihilism, then you will be unable to see Nagarjuna's final intention that emptiness and depende...

Re: Do you believe in chakras (energetic centers in our body)?

IMO, take your time. It takes time to develop faith and belief. Chakras, Wind energies, and Channels is probably the least of ways
your ability to believe will be challenged.

Re: This Western Dharma experiment has been unsuccessful

IMO, we have the Eight Freedoms and Ten Richnesses. The only thing that separates us from actualizing Dharma is honest practice, a lack of faith, and a self-cherishing attitude. When I examine (check up) I may think that I am living in refuge and guru devotion, but really I am living in the eight-wo...
