By “chaos” do you mean conflict,
Or simply unordered interaction, like bees in a hive?
There is a difference.

If you mean conflict (since the title of this thread says, “destruction”) then you need to remember that conflict requires disagreement between two or more.

So, is Tantra a source of disagreement and conflict?
I don’t think so.
But if you keep your roommates up at night playing bells, drums, and cymbals, that might stir up some problems.
EMPTIFUL.
An inward outlook develops outward insight.

no.
Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

What kind of question is that anyway?
1.The problem isn’t ‘ignorance’. The problem is the mind you have right now. (H.H. Karmapa XVII @NYC 2/4/18)
2. I support Mingyur R and HHDL in their positions against lama abuse.
3. Student: Lama, I thought I might die but then I realized that the 3 Jewels would protect me.
Lama: Even If you had died the 3 Jewels would still have protected you. (DW post by Fortyeightvows)

It's a question posed by angst.

I think, the answers are sufficient. Topic locked.
For the benefit and ease of all sentient beings. :heart:
