Obstacles in practice

Post by Miroku » Sun Aug 20, 2017 10:51 am


recently I have started ngöndro and since then things have been breaking up and some financial obstacles manifested. I am quite surprised as usually everything goes well. Not that I expect things to go well for the rest of my life, but it is still surprising. I remember reading in one Ole Nydahl's book that when one does ngöndro then things can start falling apart a bit as ngöndro is a serious purification. Can anybody validate this statement from personal experience or teachings? What were your obstacles and experiences during ngöndro?

A horse takes you where you want to go.
Bodhicitta will bring you to Buddhahood.

Even non-buddhists have many virtuous accomplishments
