Newbie Vajrayana Buddhist

Postby cataractmoon » Sun Dec 23, 2012 1:50 am

Hi, all. I just found this great forum by accident--a good accident!

I have practiced Mahayana Buddhism for nearly ten years and have taken refuge in the Vajrayana path last October 2011. I am very excited to learn from this forum. May all beings in the present and future benefit from this forum's wisdom!

Peace,
Moon

Greetings Moon. It seems a bit silly to say welcome when I've only just arrived here myself! :smile:

I too am new to Vajrayana after following a Mahayana path for some years. What made you made you change direction?
If you’re practising Dharma, you practise it for enlightenment. Not for rights, not for freedom, not for justice, not for healing, not for getting better in a worldly way.

I'm not sure I changed directions. For me, the Vajrayana holds particular teachings and liturgies to approach two great aspects of Mahayana: bodhicitta and emptiness. Vajrayana is Mahayana.

Peace.
