No way to imagine, it could be anything. He was (expectedly) pretty unpredictable, from first person accounts.

Re: Traleg Rinpoche : Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Crazy Wisdom, & the Mahasiddha tradition

Yes, I think I've all, or most of these. They had them on the Chronicles website. Traleg was great, his book on lojong was good and a slightly different angle than the Trungpa and Pema commentaries I was more familiar with. I liked the interview with a Zen roshi, maybe Yasutani? He got very emotiona...

Re: Enlightened and mundane Dakinis

I've been reading a bit about Dakas/Dakinis, and I was hoping someone could give me some clarity on the subject. Are enlightened dakinis still considered to be witches like mundane dakinis are, albeit, enlightened witches? Is the state of being a Daka/Dakini a state of realization, an occupation (e...

Re: Breath of Fire!

I'm familiar with Wim Hof. He is a character. Also an amazing athlete. I'm not sure how friendly people here will be to him, or his technique. It's definitely not traditional dharma.

Re: Apology to the Naga Realm?

I'm sure some experienced folks will weigh in. Especially Pema Chopel, he seems to know a lot about nagas. My sense, and this is just a starting pointing, don't do anything yet on my recommendation, is that you could probably use any good quality offering incense. This would be made by an expert, wi...

Re: Expressions of Gratitude

I'm grateful for being alive. I'm grateful for my teacher, who continues to tolerate me, surprise me, and provide training. I'm not the most deserving, but I am in need of this help, and for that I'm grateful.

I'm grateful for the surprises of this life, which just don't stop.

Re: Bizarre Conversation

you know, that happens very regularly. There's a guy on Facebook who claims to be Maitreya, young guy, clearly mentally ill. The only danger (to us) happens when people like that start asking for donations or taking on students. But they're usually transparent enough that this doesn't draw anyone in...

Re: Dzoghen and Mahamudra books

Trungpa is good, but not everyone's cup of tea. Thrangu Rinpoche is someone I appreciate more and more these days. Robin Kornman was a student of Trungpa's, very brilliant teacher and translator in his own right. He recommended Milarepa and Gesar's stories as examples of metaphorical mahamudra and d...

Re: Marsipan stolle

There is definite magic to the food of mothers who can cook and bake. I can't come close to my mom's desserts or breads, even with recipes.

Maybe if you knew where her family hailed from, it would make it possible to track down an approximate recipe.

Re: Marsipan stolle

That's always the best way to eat bread. When it's barely rippable, rip into it with bare hands.

Yeah, if you don't mind, I could use a good recipe. I found one online via the LA Times, but it sounds like your recipe would be more authentic.

thanks
