Re: A few questions..faces of Chenrezig

the four arms of Chenrezig symbolize the four brahma viharas and the four immeasurables. loving kindness, compassion, equanimity and emphatic joy. also the two hands holding the mani stone ( wishfulfilling gem ) symbolizes bodhicitta, the altruistic intention. for me the mala symbolizes samadhi and ...

Re: Homemade mandala offering anyone?

having the equipment to do the long mandala offering as done in ngondro is one thing. the other thing is that you need a teacher to teach you the practice. i know from my ngondro text and meeting and talking about the practice with one of my lamas and the sangha, it is clear that you need someone to...

Re: Should one nurture sadness?

if I'm not wrong i think the Dalai Lama has said that the meaning of life is to be happy. no point in mulling over with disgust of samsara, if you have renunciation you don't need to focus on the disgust of samsara anymore. they are steps and phases, not some ultimate function we need to attach to o...
