Besides Dream/Sleep yoga teachings bon methods are generally not worth much practice.

I practiced a lot of methods from Bon yungdrung lineage, from basic to more advanced practices like rushen etc.

the dream yoga and sleep yoga are very good as you can practice 24/7.


Of course radical compassion teachings and stuff like this as basic of buddhist teaching are superb as always.

It's not personal opinion of course - it's based as always on experience.

The best if you can learn Yang-Ti practice and do it really, if you do then it's life changing for sure.

I double disagree!

There are Bön practices which lead to enlightenment, therefore are extremely precious,

but the practices you named don't belong to those and don't do much!

You need to prove first that practice I named do not belong to those. Dzogchen tantras are part of bon tradition etc. I never said that Bon practices do not lead to enlightenment etc. I mean it's better to practice qigong then practice basic bon practices, mantras etc. which are not much effective.

You seem confused!

You initially claimed:

 

Besides Dream/Sleep yoga teachings bon methods are generally not worth much practice.

 

And that claim is BS in two ways, which I explained above!

And because Dream/Sleep yoga doesn't lead to enlightenment, it's not worth much!

Dream Yoga and sleep yoga leads to enlightenment in bardo. You have no basics in buddhist so please either learn more with our talks and discussion or be less authoritative so it will be make discussion more wholesome.

Yeah, it may sound like I mean all Bon teachings but what I mean this kind of internet retreats which are limited to basic methods.

Back in my 20s, I used to practice a sequence of kum nye from the bon tradition, taught by Stephanie Wright. I remember it having a lot of juice.

A claim I'd like to see the proof for.

And we were talking about "Bön" and not "buddhist".

You should write "confusion intensifies" on your pic,

because you are the guy who seems to have no basics,

but is obviously under the compulsion to mislead others with your sciolism.

yes, most people need practice more therapeutic practices rather then spiritual to have spiritual effect.

I`d argue that anything that involves sitting still, paying attention, and developing awareness is worth a great deal of practice.

Yeah, but is better to do proper classic buddhist teachings then playing with thoughts and sensations in such case.

The nature of the rain is the same. 

In the garden, it yields flowers.

In the desert, ...  thorns.

 

The Buddhas teach 84000 methods to benefit sentient beings!

Speaking ill of teachings from such a beautiful, unbroken lineage benefits no one.

 

Sad to see such disrespect

I'm not speaking ill, stop clinging to the teachings and be more pragmatic not romantic. I'm speaking the way they are.

btw.

"Padmasambhava told “Benza Guru Drubtop”, “If you live on for 7 more years, your eyesight will be recovered. The reason for you having lost sight in both eyes is that you previously believed in the Bon religion and especially, you had disparaged and despised (noble beings), causing confused inter-dependent phenomenon to arise. Now although you have seen me, due to that karmic obscuration, you will not be able to immediately regain your eyesight.”


Go tell Padmasambhava that he disrespecting religion too. lol
