Re: Change Tibetan Buddhism

Originally it was Vajrayana forum, but it was changed because on one hand Tibetan Buddhism includes its own Mahayana interpretations. On the other hand, Shingon is different in many aspects from Tibetan Vajrayana (for instance it's heavily influenced by Huayan teachings). Also, Vajrayana in Bhutan and Mongolia are derivatives of Tibetan traditions and they still have close connections.
Myriad dharmas are only mind.
Mind is unobtainable.
What is there to seek?

If the Buddha-Nature is seen,
there will be no seeing of a nature in any thing.

Neither cultivation nor seated meditation —
this is the pure Chan of Tathagata.

With sudden enlightenment to Tathagata Chan,
the six paramitas and myriad means
are complete within that essence.

:smile: It seems we can practice with or without a name. Tantric Buddhism is another term that may be descriptive, with sub headings for particular schools . . . :smile:

another potential problem would be defining which category a school such as Tendai would fall under. Tendai practices both the exoteric and esoteric so where perhaps would it fall?

"There are no seperate dharma's in the Three Realms. There is only the operation of the one mind."
"Whoever wishes to benefit beings ought to establish teachings that fit their capacities, expound the dharma in accordance with their capacities, and match the doctrines to them"

Thanks for the suggestion. The forum name "Tibetan Buddhism" is not going to be changed.
