Re: Ngakpas everywhere!

Every ngakpa has their own style. Yeah that accords with my experience of various ngakpas I’ve known. For example, Khenpo Choga seems to really like wearing golden outfits: https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/5a5e8952fe54ef0755dae5f5/1519932651364-EVZ4FCMXSDSJNJYFCDZX/ke17ZwdGBToddI8pDm48...

Re: Requirements to be reborn in Guru Padmasambhava's pure land?

If anyone here decides to use this portal, then please join the global accumulation and add your count there. Then the merit—properly dedicated—wi...

Adamantine, thanks for clarification. that's not my idea, i've been told that those whose heart practice is Thröma Nakmo has 3 vows: body - not cutting your hair, action - always remain natural and never correct the way you display yourself, mind - remain in true nature of mind. these are not exact...

Re: Sogyal, etc. split from THE SELF-ARISEN VIDYA TANTRA thread

I would venture to opine that if anyone here were to review the life story of Drukpa Kunleg in detail, it’d be hard not to find some instances that would look like sexual assault on an ordinary level, especially from a modern Western POV.

Well there’s a documented story of the great wandering advadhoot Shaivite yogi Bhagavan Nityananda where wearing just his simple dhoti (he was often totally naked which could be construed as sexual assault alone in some places) approached a women on a road and immediately grabbed both of her breasts...

Re: Sogyal, etc. split from THE SELF-ARISEN VIDYA TANTRA thread

Sex crimes are by definition not done with bodhicitta motivation. In the same sense I t is also possible to do an otherwise virtuous action with criminal intent. As I just said, there is never a circumstance that allows for a negative mind since that cannot be a remedy to a situation. Right, which ...

Re: Dudjom Tröma Nagmo ngondro

none by now, thank you. just to clarfiy, all my confusion stemmed from the book of Pema Rigtsal and his site. yes he mentioned his sublime father and yet he has no separate section about him in his book. instead, he has sections about Choying Khyabdal, Khenchen Dazer, Thrinley Norbu Rinpoche, Dodru...

Re: Sogyal, etc. split from THE SELF-ARISEN VIDYA TANTRA thread

What were the purported signs upon Sogyal Rinpoche’s passing?
Were there any? Did he leave relics? Asking sincerely all I heard
was just simply that he passed away.. nothing extraordinary.. Was he in tukdam for any period?

Adamantine, thank you brother! :) but please, whenever you have an opportunity to make an inquiry, ask if it is certainly so. not that i doubt your knowledge - but Pema Rigtsal stated clearly in his book that those 2 are not just "some other great lamas", those are his root gurus, especially Khench...

Re: Dudjom Tröma Nagmo ngondro

i am not making any claims, i just thought that being Dudjom Tersar lineage holder doesn't mean one has Thröma as his main practice, does it? long hair vow is specifically Thröma vow. so my way of thinking is even if Pema Rigtsal Rinpoche is Dudjom Tersar lineage holder and coming from Dudjom Töluk...

Re: Dudjom Tröma Nagmo ngondro

Hi y’all, I haven’t checked in here for long stretch..catching up a little now. For what it’s worth, there’s a big variety of Lamas’ and Rinpoches’ styles in the Dudjom Tersar especially when it comes to formality and restrictions. Of course it’s best to find the Lama with which one feels a good aff...
