I'm thinking of putting it here so a discussion can start. But a mod can move it to Tantra Talk if they want.
I was reading this:http://www.berzinarchives.com/web/en/ar ... edges.html
Do the Mother Tantra pledges prohibit
1. a non-tantric sexual relationship with a ordinary person (i.e. a spouse)
2. being a monk?
Or am I understanding them wrong?
Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.
-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra
"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."
-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats
