Re: A question about secrecy within Tibetan Buddhism

Then, you should accumulate merit by practicing Ngondro. Your inability to receive higher teachings means one of two things: you do not have a karmic cause and condition to meet the teachers you want to meet; or two, you have not accumulated enough merit to meet them. Of the two obstacles, the form...

Re: Remedy Gyalpo

Back in the day, folks were getting shaktipat-ed by seeing certain pictures, even posters on telephone poles. Those with the right kind of siddhis can use pictures for nefarious reasons. If some "healers" can use photos to heal, "harmers" could use photos to harm. how come it is so easy for you guy...

Re: Remedy Gyalpo

You run the risk of disturbing your peace of mind by indulging this belief. I do not think the other advice here is helpful even if the motivation o...
