Re: Bimala

Thank you guys. One more silly question: how much are you supposed to take? Would one pill per day be enough?

I think just that very nice invocation is his. But the practice in general is Adzom Drugpa's terma.

Bimala

A question to Namdrol and others proficient in Tibetan medicine: can Bimala, which ChNNR has repeatedly recommended, be self-administered? By which I mean: can I decide on my own to use it, given that I have been previously diagnosed with lung disturbance by a qualified Tibetan doctor? (Actualy, the...

Re: DC webcasts and Ubuntu 11.10

Finally, at the long last, the problem's solved. Huh, was it tough - but the solution proved very simple, of course. There's a Firefox add-on devoted to the optimalization of Flash under Linux. You download it, run it, restart the computer and, lo and behold, you can watch Rinpoche's webcasts again!...

Re: DC webcasts and Ubuntu 11.10

And and it's still nothing. Nada, neant, rien. I use Ubuntu 11.10 but I don't access the webcasts. If they play in a normal webrowser, there shouldn't be any problems if you've installed all the codecs. I'd suggest going to the software center and installing the 'Ubuntu restricted extras' package wh...

DC webcasts and Ubuntu 11.10

So I've finally mellowed enough to ditch evil Windows go full Ubuntu. The learning curve is slightly steeper than I thought it'd be, but - slowly, slowly - I seem to be adapting, and more or less cope reasonably well. With some exceptions, that is. Like for instance, Rinpoche's webcasts :-(. The Fri...

Re: Academic Buddhism is Expensive

This has prompted me to consider that, in reality, if you want to study academic Buddhism without making use of pirated materials available online, you either need access to a university library or shell out A LOT of money. Even if you have access to university libraries, it still may be necessary ...

Re: Jesus, a Buddhist?

Certainly Christianity is an important element of Western civilization. We often hear of "Athens and Jerusalem" as its two ancient sources, and this seems fair. Far from being fair, it's a massive oversimplification - repeated so many times (for obvious political reasons) that most people take it t...
