Re: Why is Amitabha absent in American Zen and TB?

Maybe because Americans are used to having such a big continent of land to work with they may be biased towards just having their own pureland instead of using some else's :shrug:

There's a lot of individuality in America perhaps the community effect suffers.

Empowerment Question

I received a Dzoghcen empowerment and I was wondering since it is Highest Yoga Tantra if I can practice other deity practices without having to get their empowerment?

Thank you.

Re: Why Mudras?

Could you say that practicing Mudras in Tantra creates the causes to use Mudras from an enlightened state? Almost like an attainment where maybe based on some kind of intuition from your form body manifest different Mudras for the benefit of others?

Re: Why Mudras?

I know in pictures that Deities are sometimes portrayed using Mudras but was wondering in a more active sense like once enlightened Mudras are something that are spontaneously accomplished.

Re: Bliss

Does the view change at all amongst the different school of Tibetan Buddhism. Perhaps where Nyingma would say that bliss is inherent while Gelug might say bliss is not inherent but only a skillful means?
