I usually prefer subbed especially if a series isn't fully dubbed, also sometimes the dub just doesn't convey the emotions etc. There are of course exceptions.

Writing in Tibetan-when to stack?

So I was writing words from wylie into Tibetan script, and I came across sgra and saw it needs to be 'stacked'.
I was wondering if there are any clues to know when the letters should be modified? For instance if there is a R in the middle of a word as opposed to the end then it should be modified?

Re: Getting the MOST out of ngondro

There seem to be some traditions where they focus bit more on the number of prostrations really. Especially it seems to be like that in Karma Kagyu (please correct me if I am wrong). In some other traditions, such as Drikung Kagyu, there are some instructions that prostrations are good idea even wh...

Re: Decreased interest in Tantric practice

It may swing back the other way one day, this is just where I'm at, and was wondering if others have been here. I swing back and forth between elaborate and exceedingly unelaborate. It just depends where one is, what feels most conducive and they're level of comfort. If one's a dzogchenpa, everythi...

Re: Decreased interest in Tantric practice

When the honeymoon phase is over is when one decides how and in what way they want the relationship to go.
Some don't make it past the honeymoon with the dharma.

How y'all like my analogies? :shrug:

Re: Kyabje Jigten Sumgon's protection wheel

I know you're asking Cone, but I only asked if I could practice this by itself mainly because I don't practice five fold mahamudra. So probably if one is a Drikungpa it may not serve as a main practice cause there's complete practice cycles in that lineage. Umm, did you forget about Uṣṇīscakravarti...
