Re: question on distingushing mind from it's nature

1) You cited the metaphor of crystal/prism. 2) Your sig in no way shape or form indicates that concepts = rigpa. 3) Why is there the critical need for Rushen - to separate Samsara & Nirvana if they are the same thing? Not even close. You made the claim, I cited Longchenpa who said this is the provi...

Re: Brahman and Atman in Kagyu?

Has this thread veered a bit from the OP ? Not really, I mean it is a thread about Shentong concept in Kagyu specifically, and we are going over Kagyu sources so... It's actually ennobling a thread which started out being a gripe about one particular Diamond Way center, IMO:) Good point.I was a bit...

Re: Brahman and Atman in Kagyu?

Guys do not misunderstand me but these views on Shentong which you are discussing here really remind me of mystical christianity, mystical islam, hinduism and all other theistic religions. How come this type of view managed to get into buddhism in the first place? Didn't the first Buddhist council,...

Re: question on distingushing mind from it's nature

Integrate. Talk to a teacher and maybe ask for thögal instructions. Who is approachable to just talk to and ask for thögal instructions? I had no idea that was even possible. I would have thought you would need to have reasonably complete and very lineage-specific empowerments, lungs, guidance etc ...

Re: question on distingushing mind from it's nature

ok, well, my thought would be that once you have without a doubt had an actual discovering of nature of mind there doesn't seem to be much point in working with anything else as all practices in one way or another go towards that. Thats not to say that you cant do secondary practices as needed thou...

Re: question on distingushing mind from it's nature

Could be a Mahamudra question too: Once a person begins to have some confidence in distinguishing mind from it's nature, is there any particular point in working with conventional thoughts and appearances in meditation anymore, rather than simply resting in the nature of mind? Is it now time to exa...
