But we don't want just release from samsara-- we want to achieve the non-abiding nirvana which is beyond both samsara and nirvana so that we can be of benefit to beings. we need to realize enlightenment, not release dukkha alone.jeeprs wrote:As I said, my approach is 'hinayana'. It has to be. I have burned up a lot of karmic credits already, so I don't want to try anything too advanced. I have a couple of introductory books by Lama Yeshe but I haven't been able to find the motivation to read them yet (although I was lucky enough to see Lama Yeshe speak in Sydney not long before he died.)
I am also mindful that in this day and age, the whole business of sexuality is a multi-media global all-singing all-dancing extravaganza. Thar be dragons.
So that is why we take that approach.
Have a good one...
