Re: So, Anthony Bourdain...

Thankfully we have Vajrayana. In bad place, I can count on mantras. That always works for me.

Hello friends,

What should I put in a proper Buddhist meditation room? Will it always be empty? )))) that is a joke, but the question is sincere.

Re: So, Anthony Bourdain...

Almost never care about celebrities, but Anthony Bourdaine was different. I really loved the guy. Two of my exes and me loved his show. Who doesn’t love travel and food? My gf saw him walking around a few weeks ago. When he came to SF, he went to my bar and ate at my burger joint. When I went to Asi...

If it is certain one is going to Vajra Hell, does one display any mental or physical symptoms?
Your head will be split into seven pieces.
By a blazing khatvanga, if you're really lucky
Nope. The club of the raging Yaksha.

Re: Enlightenment

Thank you, Crazywisdom. I think it is one of the most valuable things I have ever stumbled upon here. Really?

Re: Enlightenment

Sure meaningless drudgery is one of the faults of samsara. And that had to be recognized before one turns the mind toward dharma. But that doesn’t mean dharma is a vacation, because vacations are also a meaningless spoil of time and carry disappointments. Dharma is meant to be a joyful endeavor. Al...

Re: Enlightenment

Come to think of it I think most farmers are happy joyful people Thy take comfort in knowing they are producing food for the world. They are life producers.

Re: Enlightenment

Something tells me you haven’t. My family were farmers. Nothing in life is easy. Especially the so called path of effortlessness. If you are on a path, great. Don’t give up when it gets crushingly difficult. The big reward is nothing. Oh then you have to be a teacher. Not fun. Yes, I haven't, and I...

Re: Vajra Hell

Trungpa gave an interesting talk on Vajra Hell. For a mantra charged practitioner gone bad, every bad intent manifests and is a constant reminder of the vajra nature but it’s like seeing thru a two way mirror. You see it. But it doesn’t see you. It eludes you manifesting ever more fury. The Rudra ma...
