Re: Dharma Prints

Hi Mr. Distracted,

I was just going to browse for now but perhaps it could be prints associated with the Nyingma lineage. I would like to get a photo of Vajarsattva (approx. 5*7), and perhaps eventually a poster of Padmasambhava and Chenrizig which I would eventually frame.

Re: Pratimoksha Vows

Thank you for the clarification Ven. Huifeng. I think I see what you are saying as (if this is correct) the general formula for the textual division in relation to the 3 trainings is vinaya, sutra, and abhidharma. How does this work out with the Bodhisatta Vows then? Are they too in the classificati...

Pratimoksha Vows

Is there a sutra discussing the Pratimoksha Vows like the Bhrama Net Sutra discusses the Bodhisattva Vows?

Re: Merit & Buddhahood

In one of Nagarjuna's text Nagarjuna said that merit (skillful means/compassion) is like the father and wisdom is like the mother. The mother gives birth and the father supports.

You need merit to provide for the inner and outer conditons necessary for achieving Buddhahood.

Bodhisattva Vows in EA Buddhism

Hi all,

I wanted to post this inquiry as I am interested in learning how the Bodhissatva Vows are different than those in the Tibetan Tradition.

Thank you.

Re: The Boat v. The Shore

Phantom59 posted this a few days ago on the Tibetan Buddhism thread page by Tenzin Palmo . I found it to be very insightful about practice in modern age.

What is the difference between a valid cognition viewing on the conventional and one veiwing on the ultimate? My guess would be that a conventional valid cognition would be just veiwing on the conventional to ascertain something just on the conventional level perhaps how it depends or functions? And...

Of the two - 'me' or 'mine' which one of them is the more grosser and which one of them is the more subtler?
