Tibetan Buddhism and Bon

No holds barred discussion on the Buddhadharma. Argue about rebirth, karma, commentarial interpretations etc. Be nice to each other.

There is an ever-present freedom from grasping the mind.

Mind being defined as the thing always on the Three Times.

I dont think so many practitoners have such strong guru devotion why would they wish to sully the great Padmasambhavas teachings with Bon practise :jawdrop: ?

'For Buddhism in Tibet to become influenced towards Bon would make it degenerate wouldnt you agree ?'

That as last remark on how people view Bön teaching here... I had to come and comment on that - no one else cares. So this is not the association I want to have.

Flow it is helpful when quoting others to include the user ID of the person being quoted. Both of the quotes you used above were made by one person. One person is not "...how people view Bön teaching here..." it is the expressed view of one person. Everyone is entitled to express their view.


Maybe you collect a lot of important writings,
Major texts, personal instructions, private notes, whatever.
If you haven’t practiced, books won’t help you when you die.
Look at the mind – that’s my sincere advice.
