Re: Realization

Direct perception of dharmata, not inferential. Let's say I have a direct perception of impermanence by watching/experiencing a thought arise and decay. It would not be correct to say "I have realized impermanence" right? That would take many such direct perceptions + something else, mysterious, a ...

Re: How to become enlightened via Tibetan Buddhism?

Buddhahood is based on accumulation of merit and wisdom, the latter which accomplishes numerous relinquishments. So there is vajrasattva purification for overcoming attachments from countless lives and the mandala offerings to the three jewels to gather vast merit needed for the path.

Re: How to become enlightened via Tibetan Buddhism?

My lama explained I should look at powerful shortcuts. I don’t know why. Maybe he thought I talked too much. He thought people are busy and need good short cuts. You can take the bodhisattva vow alone. It is an aspiration. HHDL recommends: “We have to be 21st century Buddhists with real understandin...

Re: Shar Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö

So far the consensus of those close to the situation seems to be to stay very far away from this guy. So far nobody has said he is a great lama.

It just reminds me of the simple fact. This guys website smells like bullshit. It’s because of bullshit.

Re: Shar Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö

Reading the OP more carefully definitely raises some red flags. If one wants to know what has really corrupted the Vajrayana in the west - often discussed on this forum - it's this kind of stuff. I don't take kindly to the great legacy of Kongtrol, Khyentse Wangpo etc, being deployed to serve a dec...

Re: Dharma government?

I was reading up on the Sri Vijaya kingdom in medieval Sumatra. It was more of a team of governors. Very influenced by vajrayana.

Re: Dzogchen and Zen on enlightenment and post-enlightenment

Vajrayana is the only path to Buddhahood. Even Arya bodhisattvas who traverse the ten bhumis by way of six perfections eventually are initiated by Vajradhara. Maybe zen don’t want to accept that, but there are sutras that allude to this point of bodhisattvas being blessed with light etc. Zen path wo...

Re: Vajrasattva meditation & disturbing emotions

Hi. I'm just looking for some advice. I am more than halfway through my Vajrasattva practice (as part of my Ngondro practice) and I find that I'm struggling with what appears to be an increase in disturbing emotions, anger in particular. Is this a normal occurrence during the Vajrasattva purificati...

Re: Dzogchen and Zen on enlightenment and post-enlightenment

No one can really answer all these questions involving comparisons between Dzogchen and Zen. There is no master of both who can give a meaningful answer. Not true. There is a very big difference. Zen of today’s ilk has no basis by which to realize the 3 kayas. It is basically a sutra level approach...
