Re: North American Kagyu Monlam 2012

I watched most of the Monlam on the webcast which went smoothly. The Monlam was indeed an excellent experience.

Re: North American Kagyu Monlam 2012

Hi Cone, I am preparing an announcement to send out to KSC's sanghas and am wondering if there is a link available for the live streaming of the Monlam, if it there is going to be internet coverage?
Thank you,

Re: Kalu Rinpoche shocking news!

I agree with the overall crap assessment, although the headline might have been written by an editor. Given the history of Tibetan politics and the stories of sexual and physical abuse I have heard from several tulkus both publicly and privately, it wouldn't surprise me if the young Kalu Rinpoche's...

Shangpa Kagyu Teachings

Has anyone read this book? If so, how complex is it? I am thinking of buying a copy but don't want to confuse my little brain.

Re: Kalu Rinpoche: Panned in San Francisco

To get a feel for where Kalu Rinpoche is coming from, check out this website: http://www.paldenshangpa.net/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; He also has a Facebook site. I attended his teachings in Ashland, OR and found him interesting. I understand Lama Lodru's apprehension. The new K...

regular chat time?

How about assigning a regular time for a chat, so that people can gather at the same time?

Re: Mantra Recitation Out-loud or Silently?

In Dzogchen, is it okay to recite mantras silently or is it necessary to do so out-loud for it to be effective? I am specifically interested in ChNN's teaching on this if possible. Thank you in advance for responding. My teacher emphasizes that mantras are to be done out loud. The sound resonates w...

Re: Ngondro

I would like to thank everyone who responded to my inquiries about doing the practice. I have a lot to consider and to get on with! I am reading Torch of Certainty and Foundations of Tibetan Buddhism (Kalu Rinpoche) as well. These were recommended by my teacher and seem to be quite useful.

Re: Ngondro

I find it hard to imagine that most people couldn't take a minimum of 5 days out of their lives to do retreat in a given year. I'm not discussing anything unrealistic. In the U.S. even the most demanding of full time jobs give at least two weeks vacation a year and in most European countries it is ...

Re: Ngondro

The issue there is that, as a newbie, I find I get the words jumbled if I focus heavily on the refuge tree. The words, the visualisation and the action of prostrating are not as important as the "feeling" that the lineage is right there in front of you and the awe, humbleness and respect generated ...

Re: Ngondro

My teacher isn't requiring that I do the practice, just suggested I was ready for it. But I have committed to do it on a regular basis and don't plan to quit. I did lessen the number of prostrations I was doing and that seemed to help with the pressure of reaching the target number. I like the sugge...

Re: Ngondro

I find it pretty monotonous, repeating the same thing every day and counting prostrations. I find myself detached from the practice and, yes, one could say I am bored. I don't feel connected. I have reduced the number of prostrations I have been doing, which has helped somewhat, but I still find tha...
