According to Yogachara...?

Please excuse my lack of understanding but is it that the Yogacharins are saying that the Rupakaya and Dharmakaya are already present in individuals?

If this is the case, then, is this primarily a teaching from Maitreya that which provides a vital link to the Tantra teachings?

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.

Does EA Buddhism make a distinction between aspiring and engaging bodhicitta?

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.

Re: Conventional/Ultimate Valid Cognitions

:anjali: Is the white conch since it is a valid relative truth then automatically equate with conventional valid truth from the Arya's veiw point? Or is it that an Arya's view on the conventional is just going to be those things that result in enlightenment like ethical discilpline, meditation, etc?...
