No holds barred discussion on the Buddhadharma. Argue about rebirth, karma, commentarial interpretations etc. Be nice to each other.
Namdrol wrote:Saraha did not only write nice dohas. He also wrote an extensive and detailed commentary on the Buddhakāpala tantra (now rather obscure), and a number of sadhanas.
Care to let us in on some details about the subjects of the sadhanas?
He wrote a sadhana of Buddhakāpala, a sadhana of Vajrayogini, and a sadhana of Mahakala, and so on, as well as a commentary on completion stage called Svādhiṣṭhanakrama. Who knows, maybe there other works.

I believe Saraha's Mahakala is actually incoporated into the Shangpa Kagyu "Heart-Jewel Rosary" of 13 Mahakalas.
Buddhakapala has come down to the Tibetans through Marpa, and is currently practiced in the Karma and Drikung Kagyu schools. His Eminence Tai Situ Rinpoche's Monastery, Sherab Ling, in India, does a Drupcho intensive every year.

Thanks muchly to everybody for all that info!
With the eye of wisdom we discover a lot of anger in us, any amount of jealousy, resentment, ignorance, desire - mountains of emotion whose existence we would never have suspected in ourselves... We recognize that most of the faults we perceive in others are only the mirror of our own negativity, the reflection of our own disturbed feelings... At the same time, we relieve the world around us of the burden of our own negative judgements."
