Thank you dear dakini_boi _/\_

I feel like a gypsy wandering around without a home.....such a misfit. My teacher has moved far away...and I feel I have wandered away....funny how whatever your teacher does/you do. lol



You're welcome, of course!

I hope you're doing enough Guru Yoga! You can invoke the presence of your teacher any time. If you want inspiration, from a Nyingma perspective especially, I recommend Dilgo Khyentse's books The Wish-Fulfilling Jewel and Guru Yoga.

Just try to find out his adress. We`ll send the Dalai Lamas secret police. :guns:



lol...he lives in Austrailia...here's his Youtube channel (His name is Dan Rowden) : http://www.youtube.com/user/MenoftheFinite



This is weird. That link took me to Kevin Solway's channel, an atheist fellow I have had more than a few arguments with on various Buddhist Boards. I searched but got zero results for "Rowden".

HIM:



Tibet has a somewhat unique history in the overall tradition of Buddhism. It's not an especially positive one. I'm not aware of anything like Bon as an influence in any other Buddhist tradition. Loads of silly, superstitious nonsense. Mostly I find the Dalai Lama a huge irrelevance. It's just a shame that he's become such a powerful symbol for Buddhism in general in the eyes of the West. Things could have been better.



MY REPLY:

Bon is the native religion of Tibet . Buddhsim was imported from India . All countrys incorporate their native beliefes into whatever religion dominates, it helps to
assimulate the people into the transition. There is superstition in every religion, and in every Buddhist culture/country. Tibet was isolated from the world by it's geographical location...thats how it developed it's unique colorful style.

Tibet was invaded by China in the early '50's. It forced the people to spread out all over the world . Americans and other nationalities that are sympathetic to the cause of Tibet have embraced Tibetan Buddhism and the Dalai Lama out of compassion....causing Tibetan Buddhism to become popular in the West through political and spiritual motivation and sympathys.

There are many people (including myself), that have been enriched and inspired by Buddhism....it really doesn't matter what kind of Buddhist you are but what kind of heart you have.




What do you think ?


Superstitious nonsense: dreamlike creations by grasping mind to its projections and give these 'objects' colors based on that.
Tibetan Buddhism: to see what never has been created so.

It is possibly difficult to see through clinging preferences (seen as outerly-surface), the essence of Buddhism in not liking-methods-style.
Only by wisdom is dream visible.


Kunga: "it really doesn't matter what kind of Buddhist you are but what kind of heart you have". :thumbsup:
