I often hear and read how compassion is vital to Buddhist practice, alongside wisdom.
My question is why is compassion important and how does it relate to wisdom?
It’s the method. Wisdom without method is an obstacle.

Re: Palyul lamas support Still corrupt Rigpa organization and Sogyal

But hey, gives you more reason to invent an all-white lineage, which what all these internet raconteurs hope and dream about, leading an internet army of devoted iPhone holders, after having worked out the loopholes that explain away why NO LAMA supports any of this BS. I have yet to see one single...

Re: Palyul lamas support Still corrupt Rigpa organization and Sogyal

Palyul lamas are supporting disgraced Sogyal & his STILL corrupt organization Rigpa. Palyul Khenchen Namdrol taught at Lerab Ling stating that the 8 letter writers denouncing Sogyal's sexual and physical abuse were possessed by demons. Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso has also started teaching at Rigpa sinc...

You don’t know KN and don’t get what he’s saying. The author of this article sounds like a reporter writing about something completely foreign, and sounds like someone who’s never been around vajrayana. But hey, gives you more reason to invent an all-white lineage, which what all these internet raco...

Re: Dzogchen outside of Tantra

:x No, it really doesn’t. But we do not need to rehash that here. See the sig. You’re rolling down a one-way street, selling one flavor of ice cream. You do not understand the context of Longchenpa's classification system. For example, in the Shing rta chen mo, when he analyzes, mahāyoga, he says: T...

Re: Dzogchen outside of Tantra

Hi, But is there anyone teaching it in it's pure form nowadays? I made distinction between Tantra and Dzogchen as it is historically-provable distinction. To bad that, because of political games in Tibet, they became taught as a single way, single vehicle IMO. Yes indeed. Maybe this would be of som...

Re: Wrathful deities

Good to know there are more out there, thanks. I am focused on some other things now but will look into getting a teaching when the time comes. Maybe recite mantras and try to follow 5 precepts for the time being. Don’t wait too long. There are great teachers in the world now, who knows about the f...

Re: Dzogchen outside of Tantra

The GGT is a MASSIVE undertaking whose sadhana opens up possibilities like a flower. I’ve probably heard the 5 years of instruction over total about 25 years by now. Every detail missing nothing. The main practice of this tantra is the ganachakrapuja. If that’s not for you, vajrayana is not for you.

Re: Dzogchen outside of Tantra

Also if GGT is only mahayoga then the ganachakrapuja is too. Ever heard of a dakini didn’t do that always? Poor stupid dakinis. Ever heard of a lama that didn’t perform ganapuja always? Poor stupid lamas if they only knew the truth. Staring into the sky is all they had to do.

Re: Dzogchen outside of Tantra

Hi, That's exactly what I want to say. Tantra, in purpose, is the same IMO as Dzogchen teachings (I stress here Dzogchen teachings ). They are both provisional means to achieve ultimate goal. But that could be said of any religious practice. Tantra developed as a system of practices based on using ...

Re: Dzogchen outside of Tantra

It is not so, from a text critical POV. The earliest, datable text we possess that uses the term “Dzogchen” is the Guhyagarbha, a tantra belonging to the mahayoga class. What we can say for sure is that what we today call Dzogchen emerged out of a movement in 8th century that regarded the creation ...

Hello, Do you know of anybody teaching Dzogchen without all those tantric preliminaries, deity dzogrim and kyerim, just plain Dzogchen, natural state meditation? In my opinion, Dzogchen and Tantra are two separate things, second muddling the first. That is my opinion. What you and almost everyone h...
