Re: Tibetan Yogis & Their Multiple Yoginis Wives

Togden Shakya Shri have had several consorts as mentioned in his biography by Kathog Situ Rinpoche. He also had numerous children.

Re: three year retreat experiences?

I’m going to speak Kagyu heresy and float the idea that maybe Kongtrul’s 3 year retreat formula isn’t the best vehicle for transmitting Dharma to the West.

Re: Tibetan Masters' advice on dealing with loneliness

no idea who said that. found it on the web some time ago. ...It is so difficult to see friends and lovers and wealth as futile, because for most of us that’s the only reference that we have.

Re: Tibetan Masters' advice on dealing with loneliness

I think you're right to avoid non-buddhists, dating and befriending them is a waste of time. This is absolutely not true. A very general and pretty closed minded attitude if you ask me.
