I'm pretty sure he will. Biography of Virupa and Dispelling the Cataract of Darkness were given out several years ago at the end of a teaching by HHST.

Re: Favorite sutra?

I've been so lazy about reading sutras. When I was a kid I dismissed many sutras (more properly many parts of sutras) as embellishments of one sort of another (you know those pesky parts that can be dismissed as "cultural embellishments"). Still, I would often find sutras in different places (someti...

Hopefully the new temple will be ship-shape. We are all quite excited.

I just got the mailing that Sakya Dechen Ling may have Jetsun Kushok La out this summer. Anyone have a heads up on what the teachings will be?
I believe that HHST is giving Lamdre in the US in 2011 so she may be preparing people for that.

Re: Buddha Nature

This teaching has been a sticking point for me, since initially I was immersed in a practice (Zen as per the teachings of the late Daido Roshi et. al.) that talked about Buddha nature quite a bit. Not so much that they expounded upon it in great detail, however. It's more something that was emphasi...

Re: Special Days

Would it be stepping on too many toes if I ask; Where did the idea of merit multiplying days originate? I mean if a lifetime is something like 20,000 or 30,000 days, and merit is multiplied by 100,000,000 , then it seems that one could accumulate the equivalent of 3000 lifetimes' worth of merit by ...
