Re: Why drugs are bad for meditators?

This is fascinating to me because it is not the way it is generally presented to laymen in most of East Asia if they wish to become an upasaka/upasika. Japan as noted is a bit of a special case. This is explicitly outlined by Vasubandhu in his commentary on the Abhidharmakośa, so it is a principle ...

Re: Video on Mipam R and Buddha Nature.

Most practitioner's prefer this level of teaching from a Scholar practitioner or better a Buddha ,rather than just a Scholar. He is a practitioner. His books are excellent, and easier to follow than the lecture. This is stuff that gets much more accessible on paper. Who are his Teachers?

Re: If You Eat Meat You Are Not a Kagyupa - Karmapas and strict vegetarianism

Many more than the observable and cuddly ones that we eat. ChNNR taught that it is more compassionate to eat meat than not to, in order for a poor animal to ...

Re: Garchen Rinpoche Shitro

Hi, just making sure, did I hear correctly that Rinpoche advised us to recite the Threa Heaps Sutra Confession (which is 35 Buddhas confession if I am correct) 3 times per day and per night? That’s this, right? https://www.lotsawahouse.org/words-of-the-buddha/confession-of-downfalls-nyingma Yup.
