NamDak SaLing closing

Post by DechenNamdrol » Thu May 29, 2014 8:03 pm

Hello all.

I am immediately closing my centre in Calgary, Alberta and ceasing all activities due to a threat of violence made against me, a handicapped father of two young children, by a man who masquerades as a Dharma practitioner.

I wish you all the best. I won't be posting anything further.

Yikes! Be safe.
In the Tantra of the Beautiful Auspiciousness (bKra shis mdzes ldan gyi rgyud), this "Great Primordial Purity" (spyi gzhi) is defined as follows:

What is known as "The Great Primordial Purity”
Is the state abiding before authentic Buddhas arose
And before impure sentient beings appeared;
It is called the great Primordial radiance of immutable awareness.

*****
Sometimes you can get shown the light
In the strangest of places
If you look at it right.

Can't the cops do something about it?

Can we do Simhamukha for someone else?

this is a little off topic but i am intrigued. what would Simhamukha do? change the mind of oppressor? or make him uninterested? or get rid of oppressor physically?

thank you for answers.
