Re: Garchen Vajrakilaya and More

Ah, you beat me to it. Ok, so that's the deal. I'm going for a walk. Not sure if I'll watch the video later or not. Too bad.

Re: Garchen Vajrakilaya and More

Ok, thank you very much. That is authoritative. That explains my feeling, too, about the earlier empowerment. Yes, I have the text. If you have that empowerment I will gladly forward it to, PM me your email address please. There is a short text I use. There is a longer one available from Buddhavisio...

Re: Garchen Vajrakilaya and More

From my end, it's a weird obstacle filled day. I may do some Achi practice later, wouldn't be a bad idea. I'm going to check back at 4 eastern for the empowerment. The question about the validity of the empowerment with major technical issues is a good one, I don't know. Any thoughts would be apprec...

Re: Garchen Vajrakilaya and More

The last stream I saw was choppy too, now that I think of it. I miscalculated the time as well, I believe the empowerment itself takes place at 4pm eastern time. For some reason I thought it was 12pm eastern. I guess I'll try again for the empowerment, then see what happens.

If you would like to practice you should register. It is very, very cheap.

Re: Garchen Vajrakilaya and More

I will be the point person for this, but I haven't been able to reach the institute yet. It may take a little while. I will post updates here. Of course, for the empowerment itself, I don't think you need a text, that would be important for practice after. So it can wait. Should be available within ...

Re: Garchen Vajrakilaya and More

I am considering attending it online, but I am not sure if it is the right choice or not, given that I do not really know anything about the practice, and that I will most probably not be practicing it. However, I will be doing my best to uphold samaya in any case and will be continuing with other ...

Glad to hear it, Miroku!

I won't be there in person, just sitting in my meditation room watching the webcast.

Re: Garchen Vajrakilaya and More

I'm taking the empowerment tomorrow and having a little trouble tracking down the Vajrakilaya text. It is listed on Garchen.net, but out of stock. Help!

Re: A different look at Guru Yoga

I think both sides in this debate have good points. I think it's surreal that people online so rarely say things like, "You could be right," or accept that both sides in a disagreement have some element of truth. It's rarely as simplistic as saying "both sides are right," but that's usually part of ...
