Re: Yantra Yoga

I bought the level 1 dvd ages ago, did it a little, quit for a while. I'm back at it but wondering how one uses the Yantras, the dvd is somewhat opaque about that. There is the five yantras - this is what I learned last time, but then there is lungsang and the other sets...does one just pick a sect...

Re: Rainbow body questions

You need to receive more complete teachings on dzogchen to understand this point. It should not really be discussed on a forum in public. oh ok..so the Longde teachings from Rinpoche aren't complete enough? You said in another post that they were complete..but hey, if its one of those things that i...

Re: After Recognition of Nature of Mind...

Eventually I will publish something. Hopefully sooner rather than later...neither of us is getting any younger, right?

Re: After Recognition of Nature of Mind...

There are only two streams of Dzogchen transmission in Tibet: kama and terma. On the Buddhist side of things, so-called sems sde and klong sde are kama, long lineage. On the terma side of things, there is man ngag sde, the pinnacle of which is the 17 tantras. In Bon, on the "kama" side of things th...

Re: After Recognition of Nature of Mind...

It’s much simpler than this: if, when you hear the teachings for the first time, you are immediately free of afflictions, permanently, then you are a nongradualist. If you still experience affliction following introduction, etc., you are a gradualist. Anybody here that is free of afflictions, pleas...

Re: Countdown to a race war?

Uh oh, black folk are using the 2nd amendment. Watch the Republicans change their tune come out in favour of gun control now just like last time. I'd also say that America has been in a race war since at least 1861, it's just flaring up into more open hostilities now. Apparently you are not familia...
