  1. Tantra...

    Here is an interesting quote from Norbu on Tantra from the book Dzogchen Teachings.
  2. Tantra...

    You mean like with Dakini practices?
  3. Tantra...

    Thank you for the video. Do you mind sharing what the connection is like for you during and after the practice?
  4. Tantra...

    Until that view is truly realized they are doing.. lot's of being.. but still some doing. Maybe some doing to help that being be more often.. but still.. I believe in a perfect self nature. I also believe there is nothing wrong with connecting to a Buddha to help get one closer to that realization... Intent.. then it is a being..
  5. Tantra...

    I know one person, so it would have been interesting to compare.
  6. Tantra...

    Do you know anyone that can connect to the absolute aspect of another? If so, I would love to met them and observe/experiment with such a person if they were willing.
  7. Tantra...

    Thank you, I would love to see the teachings on it. It is amazing, we have been talking about merging for years and people have told us we are nuts... and now it seems it has always been part of Buddhist traditions.
  8. Tantra...

    I believe in the other thread it would be completely wrong to believe you are connecting to another being, since it is all within your mind. Maybe I am wrong. So to clarify. For you in Buddhism you can connect or become one/merge with a Buddha or a Guru?
  9. Tantra...

    Connecting to a guru is energy work. The ability to directly connect to the pure aspect of a person, bypassing all his/hers current obstructions is some very deep stuff. Being able to do so and if the guru doesn't feel such a connection is very telling. So you are saying in Buddhism, without even say having your crown open you can connect to the absolute aspect of anyone at any time?
  10. Tantra...

    I'm confused, were you not saying the opposite here? Edited for a better quote.. sorry.
  11. Tantra...

    Then one should have no fear of group energy work, because it is with the absolute of each other Here i thought earlier both the conventional and absolute were real?
  12. Tantra...

    Again, it is the Wisdom-mind, the absolute guru, not the being sitting in front of you.
  13. Tantra...

    Thank you CT but that still doesn't say you are connecting with another being who is providing assistance to realize those qualities within oneself.
  14. Tantra...

    What? We had pages where you said such a thing was not in Buddhism. Now, Buddhism does connect to a deity? I went years thinking that Buddhism did connect and did do mind to mind stuff. Yet, I was corrected and told that was wrong. Now they do again? Crazy how difficult it is to get a straight/definitive answer.. I have also seen people get laughed at for thinking such things at the dharmawheel..

    It’s just a discussion on guru and connecting/merging with divine beings with Apech and CT.
