Precious Vase

Postby Snovid » Sat Jul 13, 2013 10:34 am

I read to page 55 and switched me to the red light.

First is the mentioned of impermanence, this would not get attached to stuff, to no accumulate riches - page 51
and then instruction on how to treat the master, that is need to bestow him things - page 55

It reminds me of catholicism where the priest teach people that left their property (and the church to take care of it)

What this is about? :popcorn:

Firstly, it's nothing whatsoever like what the Catholic Church advocates (more on that in the e-mail I've just sent you).
Secondly, the Precious Vase is a restricted, transmission-related book - and as such it is not fit to discuss it openly on the Internet.

Correct about it not being a good idea to discuss specifics of a restricted text on the Internet. But it's also important to recognize that Rinpoche teaches Dzogchen as containing the essence of the entire Buddhadharma, so he teaches from all three vehicles. The ideas referred to above come from the Hinayana. The other vehicles open up different, less restrictive ways of practicing, but each vehicle has important things to teach. When Rinpoche teaches Hinayana, he doesn't ask people to practice it in a rigid, fundamentalist way, but he does expect us to try to understand why it teaches in the way it does, and what the essence of its practices is.
