Mahamudra : What do you plan to do after ngondro?

Postby mindyourmind » Tue Jul 26, 2011 2:28 pm

For the Mahamudra practitioners here :

what are your plans after ngondro?

There is such a bewildering array of possibilities to choose from (or be instructed in), what do you intend to follow, and why?
Dualism is the real root of our suffering and all of our conflicts.

In the Kagyu, what generally follows is Vajrayogini.
Ask your root lama.

Ask your lama, not internet!
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it,
unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

The essence of a real practice is to bring our intellectual understanding to the level of our heart - so as to feel it - to live it!

As per usual I went about things ass first! The reason I started Ngondro is because I wanted and asked for a specific post-ngondro practice. Still got a couple of years though. Gotta say one thing though, whoever told me that your knees get used to prostating was lying! :tongue:

more ngondro.

Provided you think you can "finish" in the first place....

It is hard, i'd rather go run for 2 hrs than do prostrations... marathon training is much easier.
