Tashi Delek from Florida!

Post by Palzang Jangchub » Sun Sep 22, 2013 12:32 am

Greetings everyone,

Just realized I've been posting in the TB forum for nearly a year now and never introduced myself here, so here goes...

I've been meditating since 2006, and met my first guru in 2007. Vajrayana was the first tradition I was exposed to, and I've stuck with it, but also have experience (and a teacher) in the Dharma Drum Mountain lineage of Chan (Zen).

I'm Rimé (non-sectarian, unbiased) in view and attitude; all authentic Dharma is good Dharma, and myriad sentient beings have various affinities and capacities. That said, I do identify as Ka-Nying, and have gurus in the following lineages: Palyul, Drikung, and Kamtsang. I'm also involved in the Namchö & Yangzab terma cycles of Dzogchen.

I'm currently contemplating the Four Thoughts intensively and have recently started the Karma Kagyu ngondro. My interests include poetics, symbolism, Prajnaparamita and Chöd Lüjin. My favorite author thus far is Shantideva, and I adore his Bodhisattvacaryavatara. Bokar Rinpoche is a close second.

It is my sincerest aspiration that my infant daughter grow up with the tools to attain Buddhahood in her lifetime. She is perhaps my greatest teacher, and hopefully will benefit from my practice, if no one else...

If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

Like attracts like, I guess. Can't hurt that we're both Drikungpas. We Könchog's need to stick together :cheers:

No worries, Simon. Just took the opportunity to turn it into a sci-fi joke. Honestly surprised that there aren't more Doctor fans on here :shrug:

Is The Doctor widely known in the U.S. ?
Anyway if you are a fan you are in for a treat with the new Doctor..Peter Capaldi is a rare talent.

Forgot to mention that I'm an aspiring translator and Buddhist chaplain. Someday...

Yes, Doctor Who is filled with timey-whimey stuff.... definitely interested.
In fact, I almost consider the Doctor a Bodhisattva, even if imaginary, he motivates me to do better.

Welcome Karma Jinpa.
Let me know if u have a blue police box, I'd really like a ride.

A year or so ago I came to the startling realization that the Doctor and the Karmapa are not so different. Both are 900 years old, have had incarnations in the double digits, and show up where/whenever they're needed by sentient beings. And neither is bound by time or space...
