Re: Why Buddhism's Decline in India?

Both external and internal factors should be considered and discussed carefully and objectively for understanding Buddhism's decline in India. However, the internal factors within Buddhist communities themselves are particularly important. You have zero proof that Buddhism became "Hinduized.&q...

Gosh darn it. :rolling: Well I guess in this case the statue is what you make it.
I think Tsongkhapa was much taller than that statue.

ngondro transmission and commitments

Hello, Are there usually commitments associated with ngondro transmissions? There's a transmission coming up and I'm quite excited. However, I want to be sure I'm not signing myself up to fail. I of course plan on doing the practices and taking it seriously and committing to it in that sense. Thank ...

Re: Any book suggestion that clarifies the Gelug view?

Edit: the following suggestions are meant to be short, approachable, and profound: "Illuminating the Path to Enlightenment" by His Holiness the Dalai Lama is short (under 200 if you ignore the glossary) and excellent. His "For the Benefit of All Beings" is even shorter than that....

Re: Making sense of types of thought

I always think of the ‘babble’ as perhaps the alaya-vijnana viewed from a certain angle. Latent karmic tendencies of the sort that form together into something a little more coherent as dreams. Sometimes I can observe them becoming dreams with enough awareness during the sleep process. I'll have to...

Re: Making sense of types of thought

I've been watching myself Like internal tv channels! My lineup is similar to yours, but I also have a looping jukebox channel that plays pretty much all the time. Do you have internal polyphony (2+ channels playing at the same time) or monophony (serial, one after another)? When I'm meditating they...

Making sense of types of thought

I've been watching myself sleep (creepy!) and have noticed some things about types of thoughts, both as falling asleep and while awake. Here "thought" refers to auditory thoughts. * There's a thread of thought I'm holding onto deliberately. * There's a thread of thought I wander off on wit...

I encourage folks to bring politic conversations to the How do you feel about Buddhists getting involved in politics?. It's such a contentious issue that it can take over a thread quite easily.

Re: Mantras for a friend in labor

Hi Hazel, Thanks for your response and your concern. All is well (phew!). A bit early and a bit longer stay in the hospital than usual, but all is well now. I had my first viola lesson a week ago - it was quite strange since I've only ever known my teacher as being pregnant and with an anti-COVID m...

Re: Mantras for a friend in labor

Good morning everyone, I just got an SMS from my Viola teacher saying that my lesson today is cancelled because she is in hospital; no further information. She is 37 weeks pregnant, so I am hoping this is good news. That said, the SMS didn't say much, but I'm probably reading too much into. Can't h...

Re: Audible books

What are some great Audible books to help me come to understand Buddhism, the Dhamma, etc? I do a lot of driving and try to avoid listening to music often. Books on meditation are ok too, if they focus on Theravada insight meditation, as taught by Mahasi Sayadaw. I'd love books that not only transl...
