Re: Lioncity forum

I'm not sure I'm understanding this ^?

Dharmawheel has a free-for- all section, already. I was merely indicating that it's a good idea--a place where discussions about, say, the validity of Rebirth, etc., can take place.

Re: Lioncity forum

I, too, was a moderator at E Sangha, and I'd just like to second Astus' comments. They reflect my experience, as well. The people who "had issues" were, for the most part, those pushing an agenda that was contrary to the positions put forth by the owner and those he chose as administrators. It was, ...

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

Agreed, Magnus. I practice a bit of Nyingma-style development stage, as do most "Kagyupas," I'd bet. We're all influenced by Dzokchen I think, and thus, the Three Samadhis, etc. The "View" carries over into any Yidam practice one does, I think. Sarma lineages do stress emptiness, and all general Mah...

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

Magnus- well, sorta. Mahamudra is both a view and a "practice," or variety of practices. There are some who "practice" Mahamudra in an "uncontrived" way, as they say, focusing on Samatha And Vipassana as they are explained in Mahamudra teachings, and who dispense with Yidam practice entirely. This i...

Re: Special Days

We're celebrating the birthday of His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa Orgyen Tinley Dorje on the 26th---if anyone's in the SF Bay Area, come by the Berkeley Marina between 10-3.....we'll be doing Riwo Sangcho at 10, and it's a special day for practice as noted above!

Re: Yidam and Dzogchen

Great thread, thanks to all. Somewhat off topic, but perhaps not....I recall a student of my Guru asking when we were going to "get to the Mahamudra practice" --this was in the context of a closed "druppa/Jinsek" yidam retreat. I'm not even going to give you the Guru's answer, I think you all know i...

Hello From Cone

I thought I'd "de-lurk" and join the club.

Hi to old friends, and to hopeful new ones, as well.

Be well.
