Re: The Myth of Enlightenment

The myth of enlightenment is one of the most diabolical creations ever. What better way is there to mentally enslave people than that? Under the cover of “desirelessness”, people’s desire to find meaning in a life where there is no meaning, is magnetized, a situation so dire and existential, that an...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

The Karmapa strongly disapproved of Trungpa's marriage to Diana, and essentially wrote him off as a legitimate lama when he did that. Did Karmapa have a wife? No! As Diana says, "He was very strict about his monastic vows." His Holiness was very strict about his monastic vows ... While His Holiness ...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

I totally get it now! Tibetans are a primitive, wild, superstitious, crazy people who have deluded themselves into THINKING that they are Buddhists, so they can imagine that they have separated from their primitive past and are now modern people! Well, maybe "Buddhists" compared with these people, b...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

More proof that Trungpa was not enlightened is that he didn't know how to have a good party. Here, I am using an actual dream party as an example. I'm sure we all have dreams of being at wonderful parties, and I think dreams provide the best example of what a "pure" party is, and can be. I think tha...

Re: Petition Launched / Dharma Teachers: Retract Your Homages to Sogyal

It's important to say "no" to abuse. This is not just about what Sogyal did to his students, but about what any of these Tibetan lamas would be allowed to do to any one of us. Shall we go back to the old days of patriarchy, where dad can beat up his wife and kids all he wants, rape his daughters, an...

Re: Petition Launched / Dharma Teachers: Retract Your Homages to Sogyal

Like flies on shit, these lamas are drawn to death. That is their domain. No one can question them in the realm of the unknowable. Of course, they congregate at the time of Sogyal’s death to promote their cause. That’s where they can strut their irrational messages unimpeded. That’s where they can p...

Re: Petition Launched / Dharma Teachers: Retract Your Homages to Sogyal

Question: Who made Sogyal a lama? Answer: He did it himself. All the other lamas went along with it because he was from a prominent Tibetan family. These lamas have no morals and no ethics, and should not be followed or respected by anyone. Question: Who wrote The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying th...

Re: The Myth of "Enlightened Society"

Is the selling of Marpa House a good example of "enlightened society"? Is taking 40 dharma students' "enlightened society" apartments away from them a good example of "enlightened society"? For that matter, Is rape and sexual abuse, orgies, drunkenness, drug-taking "enlightened society"? Is a chaot...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

Trungpa is really no better than any of these sleazy politicians who promise one thing -- so you vote for them -- and then give you something completely different after they are elected. I'm sure most of the people who started out with Trungpa were looking for something that looked like Tibetan Budd...
