Prediction:

Everybody gets a ray gun!!! pew pew!!

“Come in, Star Commander, I think I detect space junk.”

Re: Ngondro vs. Yidam?

Re: Tilopa and Matangi

There’s a story about Lawapa receiving a Vajrayogini method from a woman known only as a “pig-herd.” In Indian stories, the women teachers are nameless root gurus who are manifestations of dakinis. Saraha has a similar story with the fletcher woman. It’s fascinating this went on, considering the met...

Are you saying Ati Guru Yoga is the ultimate semdzin, and semdzins are limited Guru Yogas?
Pretty much. But the semzin are like many keys you keep trying until one works then you are no longer in doubt.
Thank you. :smile:
You’re welcome. Good job.

Re: Ati Guru Yoga and Semdzins

I'm sorry that doesn't clear things up for me. My understanding is that both result in Guru Yoga, and both use the same experiences to enter Guru Yoga. Guru yoga is one. Semzin are many.

Re: Fiction with Buddhist influences

Not a book, but the sci fi movie, “Arrival,” has a very interesting theme about language that I think applies very well to build a better understanding of Buddha’s intent about mantras and mandalas. It’s very deep. One of the best sci fi movies of all time easily. Another movie I thought was really...

Re: Is it rare to spew don’t time with you guru?

personally i feel personal connection with guru is crucial. you both have to be really close.. i wouldn't necessary talk friendship, but my idea is that a student and a guru have to be really mutually exposed. that way they get to know each other better and imho that's the only way an authentic tea...
