Re: interfaith dialogue

I never really appreciated Christianity until I met the Dharma but now I have come to see it as a profound and beautiful spiritual tradition. The parallels between Catholicism and Tibetan Buddhism are often astonishing. :buddha1:

Re: 100% Enlightenment Guaranteed!

It's because of this sort of quackery that I think not only is it foolish to pay for dharma, it is unethical to sell it. A master of dharma should be powerful enough to be capable of sharing his knowledge freely and compassionate enough to be willing to share his knowledge freely. Well yes but this...

Re: The Book of Three Beliefs

Hi, According to Roach, he learned it from Khen Rinpoche Geshe Lobsang Tharchin and Sermey Jetsun Geshe Thupten, Rinchen and they in turned, learned it from Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. Trul khor (magical wheel) seems to present at least in the Nyingma tradition (Yantra Yoga, Namkhai Norbu) and Bon - T...

Re: The Book of Three Beliefs

Hi, There is a text called "The Book of Three Beliefs", attributed to Tsongkhapa by Roach, in The Tibetan Book of Yoga. Can anyone confirm the authenticity of the text? This might be his way of translating "The Three Principals of the Path" but I'm not sure as I haven't read the T B of Yoga and don...

Re: IS AWARENESS A FUNCTION OF THE BRAIN?

Hi This is my first post in this forum. I havent searched through the forum yet. My question is "IS AWARENESS A FUNCTION OF THE BRAIN?". Definitely not! Awareness is a function of the mind. Brain and mind are not the same thing. The brain is material, a physical organ of the body whereas the mind i...

Re: Restrictions on joining the Samgha

Yeah, in previous posts I mentioned that I suspected it was a strictly Nyingma thing but that I wasn't sure. But since I was having trouble getting everything through to Ron I figured I'd overlook that point for the sake of simplicity. :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: Yes good call under the circumsta...

Re: Restrictions on joining the Samgha

Holy crap, Ron. Seriously, are you even READING my posts? You keep repeating my own point to me as if it's yours. Let me try one last time, AND PLEASE READ THIS VERY CAREFULLY FROM BEGINNING TO END because it should clear this matter up for you: I have already established that WITHIN TIBETAN VAJRAY...

Re: Restrictions on joining the Samgha

I agree. The notion of Arya-Samgha, I'm pretty sure meant the stream of Noble beings which consisted solely of monastics only. Yes and no - 'Arya Sangha' does refer to those who have realized emptiness/selflessness and have thus overcome ignorance and are therefore considered Noble (Arya) beings bu...
