Re: Ready for sadhanas?

IMO Keeping your Guru at your Heart is the most Important thing, If you do every practice with the Inseparability of your Guru mixed with your mind you will quickly accomplish results. :namaste:

You are trying to meld two things together that are not compatible. I here Dzogchen is open to all so it might be good for you to investigate that. :namaste:

Re: Why was E-Sangha controversial?

I could add some reasons, But ive moved past it and started trying to apply Dharma, Its dead let it remain dead a place cannot accumulate such non virtue and expect to remain functioning.

Re: Lojong as " stealing " ?

Simon E. wrote:I have no personal experience of formal Lojong...On another forum I have just read a startling debate where one of the participants describes Lojong as " stealing the karma of others " and " thwarting their negative desires "..

Any comments ?

Collective Karma would imply a collective consciousness which is something that isn't taught by Buddha.

Re: Books written by H.H. Dalai lama

HH Dalai lama is more Rime then anything, When he is universally loved by Buddhists of many sects its natural for him to present himself in a Non Partisan manner Gelug can no longer really lay claim to HH. When I think of HH Dalai lama I think of Vajrayana in General rather then one sect in particul...

Re: Regarding Chinese spies

Caz- I think the word "Politics" can mean many things....in it's purest form, it describes the relations between persons or groups of persons, though we use it these days to mean, mainly, the practice or profession of governance of nations. I think that politics is inevitable in religion, because "...

Re: Tradition of Oracles in Gelug

The most important thing to know is that a completely enlightened being, a Buddha, can never manifest through an oracle. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has stated this at several teachings and it is also something I have confirmed with my teachers. The reason is that if enlightened beings started to m...

Re: Taking Refuge

I don't know Caz. The situation in Tibet being what it is I am not so impressed with the connections of that have resulted in aforementioned tulku's so-called "beneficial activities".

Re: Taking Refuge

This is a far cry from the opinion of the lamas and monks I have spoken to at Sera Jey and Mey monasteries, but I guess it all depends on where you get your information, and who you decide to trust.

Re: Taking Refuge

Geshe Soepa is an excellent scholar and also a very nice man, even if he isn't the lama you choose as a guru, you will learn a great deal from him in the meantime. The current Phabongkha tulku is not associated with FPMT or Sera Mey, as both organizations require their members to sign an oath again...
