Re: Monk caught at love motel with woman and drugs

This is very sad even monks party harder than I do. :cry:

However this is a good reminder to not judge a book by its cover and also great chance for me to think if I'd be a good monk.

Re: Garchen rinpoche Yamantaka Empowerment Livestream

Yes, the fact that they are giving these teachings online is a great blessing. IMO I think it works, although to feel some "extra vibrations" it is always better to be at the place and not in your pyjamas at your home. :)

Re: Garchen rinpoche Yamantaka Empowerment Livestream

I am happy you bring news of Rinpoche teaching. :heart: I wish I did, unfortunately I caught flu and it was impossible for me to attend teachings for 2 days, as my mind was blurred and I had trouble staying awake. :D However I found out that developing bodhicitta and praying to guru helped a lot, s...

Those are sad news. I have never met him, but hope his students will keep their samayas pure and achieve enlightenment in this lifetime.

Re: zen is hard or easy, for a lot or few ?

I dare say from my limited experience that Zen is (just like any other buddhist path) very hard at the beginning but once it is mastered it is easier than breathing. :tongue:

Re: THE ART OF SEXUAL KUNG FU - inner alchemy

Hi, my qigong instructor has warned me and others about these sexual practices and Mantak Chia. The problem here is that the practices can hurt people when used by someone who is not ready and this can be quite a problem since the damage can be on the level of energy and western medicine is not real...

Buddhist magazine/podcast

Hello,

I would like to ask if anybody here knows about good online buddhist magazines or podcasts. I already follow Buddhaweekly and Vajrayana world, but since I am greedy I would like to have access to other interesting articles. :-) Also if they were more Vajrayana themed I would appreciate it.

Re: Suggestions on Planning for Death

I am sad to hear about your situation and can't really give much advice, but here is what I imagine could be useful. I would try to read Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche, it is a good book filled with advice and it helped me when my father died. Also try to develop boddhicita many...

Re: Adultery and Being a Buddhist

You may love them all, but you have to realize that you are hurting them. Maybe you are not hurting your lover, but you are for sure creating conditions to seriously hurt your wife. It might be possible to love more people at once, but do you really love your wife when instead of doing the best for ...

Re: Winter teachings with Garchen Rinpoche

What is the preliminary empowerment? I have never heard of it and am very curious about the meaning of it. Is it possible to only receive the main empowerment without receiving the preliminary one?

I think I have received lung for manjushri mantra from Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, however I will have to check my notes.

Re: Winter teachings with Garchen Rinpoche

Hmmm will some lung for the Manjushri be given or is it naturally part of the empowerment or can a person do the practice even without lung? Because I would like to participate via webcast, but dont have lung for the practice.
