Re: Last chance to practice Secret Mantra?

Related to this, isn't it possible that one will simply be born in a different universe where different Buddhas appear? Judging by the above quote it seems to be implied that this is not the case.

Re: Sam Harris, Musk Deer Hunter?

I first learned about Sam Harris years ago when I was a volunteer reviewer for the Shambhala Sun magazine, and he wrote an article about getting rid of Buddhism in the mag which I read and reviewed. I then knew someone who was a fan of his and told me how much I should read his book Waking Up. Sinc...

But you are interpreting the dharma, and as such are asking others to accept your authority, not the authority of the dharma through specific quotations. In that case, you should present your credentials.

Re: Sam Harris, Musk Deer Hunter?

What does it matter what Sam Harris thinks or says. There is no reason to read his books as there are books written by qualified lamas available. For the purpose of having a discussion which may be informative. Plus, I could learn something about how other practitioners view Dzogchen by hearing the...

Re: Dzogchen Community of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Does one need to attend a sms course to engage in deep sms base practice (long retreat) or is it good enough to have the material, transmission and lthe contact of antrainer to clear out doubts? The latter is fine. Schedule-wise: Vienna officially cancelled, which means Munich is unlikely to happen...

Re: Why plants don't have citta?

Why plants don't have citta? Why they don't transmigrate? Why do you say they don't have? I haven't really thought about it or looked into it, but this reminded me of a story from Patrul Rinpoche's commentary on the Bodhicaryavatara. Though it is not exactly clear whether the person in question was...
