Re: DC Ödzer Chenma practice

There is Sutra of Odzer Chienma (Marici) which you can easily practice without any permissions.
There are also Kriya Tantra empowerments for Marici.
Personally never heard of higher yoga tantra practices but probably there are some.
Not sure how NNR practice is categorized.

Re: Wrathful Black Hayagriva

Wrathful Black Hayagriva practice from Dudjom Tersar is no joke! Without going into details - this practice is one of the most wrathful sadhanas I've seen in Tibetan Buddhism - so I really believe it should be practiced only with all permissions from Lama. Not only empowerment and lung is required b...

Re: Meat Eating Mantras

another method is closely connected with Yidam practice, you visualise yourself in form of Yidam and you perform visualisation of fire puja. Fire being your mouth and hands being "spoons", meat (or any other food or drinks) are offered to fire and you imagine that through connection sentient beings ...

Re: Most Powerful Dharmapala?

as previously written - the most powerful is Dharmapala which is closely related to your Yidam practice. However I'd recommend 6 armed Mahakala Sadbhuya (Chadrupa) daily practice as he is emanation of the mind of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara in form of protector (also he is Lama, Yidam, Dharmapala and...

It's interesting fact that Dharma courses charged $100 per day or more, are so often turning to be run by some kind of abusive teachers

Re: Dudjom Dzambala Practice

this is nice, but many western "ngagpas" I met have little clue about Mahayana motivation and are just simply attracted to Tibetan shamanism. They look for exotic courses and empowerments for wealth, healing and power to get rich, healthy and powerful. Fortunately Lamas are smart to use this occasio...

Re: Dudjom Dzambala Practice

I'm guessing that there's likely a different emphasis on this according to which teachers you have and what lineage. In the Ngakpa lineages of Nyingma Pema Chophel is correct in what he says. If your teacher advises otherwise of course you should follow what they say: but Pema Chophel is not incorr...

Re: Dudjom Dzambala Practice

"Without supreme siddhi everything else is only samsaric activity and no guarantee it actually brings benefit to sentience beings" Which is why every time we pray for siddhi we always pray for both supreme and ordinary siddhi.

Re: Dudjom Dzambala Practice

Common or ordinary siddhi are important for accomplishing the four activities when working for the sake of all sentient beings. One should not think of ordinary siddhi as being a second-place finish to supreme siddhi. Supreme siddhi (Realization) are for one's own benefit, ordinary siddhi are for o...

Re: 3 year retreat vs Daily life practice

The best is to talk to your Guru, some people may not suit to long retreats and they will benefit better if they do daily life and some practice. Other people are born to do retreats, even without knowing Dharma they go on solitary trips to forests or mountains.

imagine if you have to hear imam fards (prayers) from your coworker even for 10 sec every time you pass her working station. I'd probably report to HR, workplace is not place for religious activities period, unless you do it privately and quietly.

Re: Is suicide OK?

I believe for Mahayana PoV killing a vessel (your own body) which may serve to bring sentience beings to enlightenment would be considered selfish
from Vajrayana PoV killing yourself (or anyone else for that matter) equals killing a Buddha
