Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Wienstein:

Is what they teach even the dharma? A good chunk of it seems to be similar to play-acting. The notion of putting someone in a 'stockade' should be a red flag, especially post-Stanford prison experiment I feel this is nitpicking now. If there were no sexual allegations, you and PeterC probably would...

Re: An Unusual Prayer...

Those who wish misery and suffering upon others will get misery and suffering in their own lives instead. Also, IIRC, this a karmic action is heavier made worse if someone knows that something is negative but does it anyway. You are working against the training which should be liberating your mind ...

Absolutely. I hope everyone realises that there can always be more love in the world. I hope everyone's grows in strength and stability.
BTW, who or what is a "Jesus Christ" ?

Is this what practitioners spend their time fantasising about? Looks like no-one's safe from a neurotic obsession with politics. Jesus Christ.

Dr Kellogg was nuts. It's educational to look up what he recommended carbolic acid for.

And that's the kind of pathological thinking behind circumcision.

Re: CTR, polygamy, cocaine, etc: Discuss

I must say that this makes me pretty f*****g glad my teachers are ChNNR, Garchen Rinpoche and many others who do not play games with me. Easy, plain simple. No sex, no drugs and khaita dances instead of rock'n'roll. Maybe boring but safe. Outside of formal teachings and empowerments, the kindest th...

Re: CTR, polygamy, cocaine, etc: Discuss

The issues which raise red flags for me with the CTR kind of approach is the notion of an integral part of the lama's job being playing head games and play-acting with a student (i.e. the weird military stuff with Shambala). I think sexual abuse is something that can become almost an inevitable nex...

Re: TRUCK FUMP

IDK, I have felt this way about our last administrations as well, they were just much better a PR. Bingo. I strongly recommend "Trust Me, I'm Lying" by Ryan Holiday to anyone who has any interest in news, especially anything about Trump. Shows how terminally damaged, partisan and useless the media ...

Re: TRUCK FUMP

His goal is to keep pretty much everyone around him (with the exception, maybe, of his family) in a state of livid chaos. That's how he makes his deals. If he were a boxer, he'd come at his opponent with a wild flurry of punches and jabs, from all sides, with no apparent logic. To defend against th...

Re: Circumcision

Circumcision is an awful thing to do to a baby. I'm thankful it's not seen as normal in my country.
