Lamdre.

Postby Caz » Mon Apr 04, 2011 8:48 pm

Could someone please kindly explain what Lamdre is and how it is practised. :namaste:
Abandoning Dharma is, in the final analysis, disparaging the Hinayana because of the Mahayana; favoring the Hinayana on account of the Mahayana; playing off sutra against tantra; playing off the four classes of the tantras against each other; favoring one of the Tibetan schools—the Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, or Nyingma—and disparaging the rest; and so on. In other words, we abandon Dharma any time we favor our own tenets and disparage the rest.

Namdrol-

Is this path of practice the basis for a 3 year retreat in the Sakya system? Are other practices, outside this path, added?

And could you elucidate the difference between the Lam Dre TsokShay and the Lamdre Lobshay for us?

It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

How did your retreat go Namdrol a 3 year one sounds like bliss :thumbsup:

I am sure for many people it can be both enjoyable and painful, I haven't done it ;)

This is a good book to have and idea about the Lam Dre meditation system:

To understand the emptiness of inherent existence is to know dependent-arising as the reality of all phenomena.

Malcolm,

Can you explain more what you meant by the "creation and completion stages of the Yidam Hevajra" ?

Thanks,
Kdolma
