Re: For the Wanderers: Mingyur Rinpoche's Wanderings

To be fair, I'm pretty sure Mingyur Rinpoche's retreat wasn't centred on Chö, but mainly a Dzogchen/Mahamudra retreat based on the instructions of his father, Tulku Urgyen, and his other main Dzogchen Guru, Nyoshul Khenpo....and also the Mahamudra instructions of Tai Situpa which he received just be...

Re: Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche out of retreat

It appears that Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche has returned to the world according to his website: http://learning.tergar.org/2015/11/02/mingyur-rinpoche-has-emerged-from-his-retreat/ Yes amazing news, he's looking well. Looking forward to seeing what his plans are next. Hopefully a visit to Europe to sav...

I'm pretty sure Malcolm mentioned once that there are Tögal instructions for blind practitioners in the dgongs pa zang thal.

I spotted that person too! Maybe they had a good think about their bodhisattva vows...

Ha...I don't even know where my nearest wee free is! There's a different atmosphere here...the Tory's and Labour like to paint the movement in a negative light...but it feels very positive on the ground.

Re: POLL on knowing conservatives

I, in all honesty, don't know a single conservative, not one. Where I come from, Scotland, the conservatives have never been popular (to put it politely)...they have one member of parliament (out of 59), who scraped by with 800 votes. The political landscape has changed dramatically in Scotland... T...

Re: Pema Khandro?

In 'Gyaldak Rinpoches' bio it says he studied at Sherab Ling under Mingyur Rinpoche. As Mingyur Rinpoche is in retreat, I can't ask him at the moment... But I have asked a couple of friends who lived at Sherab Ling for many years...one, Mingyur Rinpoches attendant and translator...and the other a re...

Re: Reiki

I remember someone asked Akong Rinpoche, who was also a Tibetan Doctor, about Reiki and it's benefits, as they were about to embark on a Reiki 'master' course. AR answer that it was 'about as beneficial as getting your haircut'. They didn't do the course.

Re: Two figures in Milarepa Thangka

Well, I've never seen Naropa in that posture...I'm sure its Padampa Sangye...this is how Indian skin colour is depicted in Thangkas, plus the posture typical of PS...plus he had a famous encounter with Milarepa.

Re: Two figures in Milarepa Thangka

Ignoring the script, which is often wrong in Thangkas...I'm pretty sure the bottom centre is Rechungpa... The horn and hand to his ear the usual way he is depicted. The person in the cave is, I believe, Padampa Sangye...whom Milarepa met... Posture and also skin tone are typical of his usual appeara...

Re: Khamyigma text

Hi Greg, You may have more success seeking out a text from the Hindu tradition. I am surprised that there isn't something already within Muay Thai if Hanuman is associated with it. The Sherab Ling text is specific to where Sherab Ling is situated. Also a lung would probably be required. Best wishes,...

Re: Khamyigma text

You'll only get it at Sherab Ling Greg...as Tai Situpa wrote it for Hanuman, as a local deity in Himachal Pradesh. Its honestly like two lines or so long. Just a torma and a short line of praise. Kayigma are the protector prayers in the Kamtsang tradition, based round Mahakala Bernachen and his ento...
