Re: Lama Ole Nydahl, what do you think?

Namdrol is 100% correct.


If you leave Islam, you must be killed. This is actually a mainstream and common position among Muslims (excluding secularists).

Re: Bothersome things about Vajrayana and Dzogchen

... I certainly understand your issues with conditioned phenomena, Enochian. I just hope you realize that working with the conditioned phenomenon called language will only get you conditioned conceptual answers. I think you'll find yourself much closer to the Unborn, Dzogchen, or what have you, by ...

Re: Bothersome things about Vajrayana and Dzogchen

Ok let me put it in another way. If you 100% NEED a transmission to understand your natural state, it would NOT be natural would it? Not necessarily. Plants need sunlight to grow. Pretty natural. But Dzogchen explicitly says it is not a path of transformation. You are describing transformation.

Re: Bothersome things about Vajrayana and Dzogchen

Why would I understand Dzogchen? I never had transmission. Then it is pointless for you to make any proclamations about it or imagine it is "limited" and so on. N If you 100% NEED a transmission to understand Dzogchen, that means it is conditioned. Thats just logic. Its nothing that I need to "imag...

Re: Bothersome things about Vajrayana and Dzogchen

Its kinda funny, 'cause even the direct-transmissions schools like Rinzai Zen require a Zen master to facilitate the process. I understand this. But Dalai Lama himself gives 50% of it away when he says there is a discrepency between thoughtforms and reality. And this is in every nonrestricted book ...

Re: Bon and the karmic problems of Tibet

He is saying "The conclusion I’d like to draw is that at least some Buddhists, by the end of the 10th century and perhaps earlier, thought of the funeral rituals practised in earlier times by Tibetan ritual specialists as a religion called Bon." . It is clear enough. /magnus In this sentence, he is...
