Re: Vajrayana and emotion in daily life

If you have had many Tantric initiations and are a Tantric practitioner then the emotions can be transformed very easy, i would say so. If this is not the case then your methods are not good enough to deal with transforming emotions. Indeed, this is what I was asking about... My methods/capacity ar...

Re: Vajrayana and emotion in daily life

What I understand to be the essence of Vajrayana is the principle of transformation, and transforming the five poisons into the five wisdoms. To this end I often hear statements that we shouldn't block emotion, powerful emotion is a powerful tool etc. However, despite having had many Vajrayana empo...

Re: Starbucks

You are absolutely right that the government has here the duty to forbid single used plastics, foam cups etc. What should the penalty be for possession of these forbidden items? If a person has several of them do they get charged with trafficking? If it is forbidden , then it is not anymore produce...

Re: What Does Dzogchen Say About It’s Origins?

Not so. If you are making claims of historicity you need to produce actual evidence, contemporary literary, archeological, carbon dated manuscripts etc. And there are none. What there are are stories, claims, counterclaims that bear little scrutiny as forensic documents. And it doesn’t matter in th...

Re: What Does Dzogchen Say About It’s Origins?

The Dzogchen Tradition says that it’s origin in this world system lies not with Shakyamuni Buddha, Gautama Siddharta, but with the Primordial Buddha Samantabhadra who revealed it to the human teacher Garab Dorje. Some accounts then square the circle by describing Garab Dorje as an Emanation of Shak...

Re: Starbucks

Hmmm... not the biggest fan of Starbucks' corporate policies either, but in this case I don't really see the point. Are other cafés giving away reusable cups for free? I think 2,50€ is a fair price, especially since you get a discount of 30 Cents for yout beverage if you bring your own reusable cup...
