Cause and Effect

Cause and Effect [At the time of Buddha, a farmer asked to be ordained as a monk. Shariputra did not see his merit. But, with a great, compassionate mind, the Buddha took his hand and said, "I will give you ordination. You do have a seed to attain arhatship...."] The Buddha explained, "Thousands and...

Yidams, Dakinis, and Dharma Protectors

Yidams, Dakinis, and Dharma Protectors Yidams are male or female Buddha-figures with which we bond our bodies, speech, and minds as a method for achieving enlightenment. We make the close bond (dam-tshig, Skt. samaya) by visualizing ourselves as the figures, making offerings, reciting mantras, and o...

Re: Mantra Recitation - Do You Do Enough?

Oh and I don't do nearly enough. I don't put much pressure on myself either. Sometimes I feel really bad for not practicing as much as I could though. It's been my personal experience that if you feel bad about practice you fall behind on, it makes it harder to do. Kind wishes to you. Best, Laura

Re: Knowledge and Awareness in Buddha

For those who might call my intentions into question or my vows (as has been mentioned with others in these threads), bodhisattva vows are on the forefront of my mind as I kindly redirect the trollers to better forums. To call that into question would be very biased and could as well be an instance...
