Re: Ngondro

This is common. Push through resistance. It's the ego pushing back. When you push through you reach a blissful peace and you will be very glad you stuck with it. What do you mean by "push through"? Can you give me an example? I have been persisting in the practice but don't find my resistance lesse...

Ngondro

Hi everyone, I have just begun doing Ngondro practice, and am finding I have an enormous amount of resistance. I am doing the practice almost daily for the past month but don't feel the same kind of connection that I have to other practices that I have been doing, including calm abiding and Green Ta...

I have a copy of Torch of Certainty but have yet to start it. Sounds like I should give it a read!

Re: Mantra Recitation - Do You Do Enough?

I have been considering joining a Ngondro group at my center here in Ashland. My teacher says I am ready but I still feel as if meditation is a challenge for me. When does one decide to begin doing Ngondro, is there a "right" time to so?
Thanks for the insight.

Re: The National Rifle Association

I would never join the military, but as a martial artist I have used my training, on the rare occasions that it was necessary, to cause the least harm to the fewest people, including an attacker, if I could not run. . It's important to realize that not everyone who joins the military does it to kil...

Karma Dondrup Tashi wrote:Why not just let Jesus be Jesus and Buddha be Buddha?
I have to agree with this, The man was Jewish, not Buddhist. Just because there are some similarities in the teachings doesn't mean Jesus was Buddhist. I really don't see the point in this question.

Re: The National Rifle Association

The National Rifle Association or NRA is a fixture of American politics: it's extremely influential, and its influence is hotly debated to say the least. This is a recent comment from a colleague of mine (I've quoted him before here at dharmawheel...): it seems clear to me that the NRA, at the very...

I like dark colors for the text. I am having a bit of a strain seeing the light blue lettering.

Re: Hello Everyone

Buddha-Dharma is for the Monk and is orientated towards the Mind. Sikh-Dharma is for the Family and orientated towards the Heart. Hi Lotus, If I understand this sentence correctly, you are discounting a great number of lay practitioners who practice Buddha-Dharma, as you call it. That includes most...

Re: Hello Everyone

Hi Lotus, thanks for the info. I was just curious. Do you have any idea where the hubs of Sikh residents might live in the States (that's where I am)?

Use a notebook?

Luke, I think you misread Lotus's intention. I don't feel he is criticizing Buddhism or trying to convert us.

prayer flags

Hi everyone. My prayer flags are starting to fade dramatically and are looking a bit tired. When does one replace them with newer versions, how does one dispose of the old flags and is there a particular time of the year to do this?
:thanks:
