Re: Garchen Rinpoche phowa recording

This kind of energy is what drew me to Buddhism 13 years ago, and the power of such a powerful Enlightenement for the sake of the passing is my driven hope to save others in this world. This recording is reminding me of a time I spent in a crematorium, in full Buddhist Metta . That experience chang...

Re: Lotus sutra

Actually, you do not know if your severe punishment has yet to come. You say, "It would have harmed me by now," but you do not know that. Your harm could be still on its way and not arrived yet. I have been on lotus sutra for last 26 years, day in , day out. And I have suffered a lot during this pe...

Re: Namkhai Norbu lineage

As Loppon Malcolm said to you on October 15 a lot of people are in denial about what is actually happening. This is true even when is in daily touch in person with the main people. It must be very confusing to try to make sense from a different continent. As Elio has said many many times before he ...

As I said not popular 🙂 But this is not just my interpretation of things. Absurd? You don’t think that the whole situation is absurd? You should see it close up 😂 Not popular and not true.Rinpoches teaches are alive did not pass with him.Just a plain fact. If one is a student of Rinpoche.One knows....

Re: Namkhai Norbu lineage

For example? Many of the Kyere Shalkar cycle of terma were explicitly linked to the Vidyadhara and stopped at his paranirvana. Some actually disappeared physically This would seem to be an exception,not the rule for most terma. This may be. The example might not apply. But it might. The reason that...

Re: Did the Buddha teach against killing a being quickly out of mercy?

IF a being is dying and in pain.Give them medicine for the pain.If they ask for more meds give them more.If they die then you were only trying to ease the suffering.*
