  1. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Subtle Body


    As the previous post was perhaps the description of Pranayama in practice, it is rare to see how Buddhism handles the subtle body at the most basic. While it is correct that advanced...

    Kriya-Charya Pith on How to establish a Yoga Deity

    STTS and Vairocana Abhisambodhi Tantra (VAT)

    STTS Chapter Twenty-four and Vajrasekhara



    This translation is really more like a summary of the chapter's contents. This is how it describes the Dharanimandala or goddess equivalent of...

    Dakini Jala and STTS, Sattvavajri

    And so...
  7. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Kind of. It was more like what I would describe as a "tornado of lightning". It was in a cloud for about an hour, which caused the night sky to just be "on" like that, like a giant fluorescent light....

    Guru Yoga


    Teaching and training as a whole is presented in Block Outline form. That is how we are able to ascertain "structure" and "parallels". So there are a few remarks about the Jonang sect;...

    Prajnaparamita, Vajra Family, and Guru Yoga


    Prajnaparamita Heart Sutra is another of the most famous mantras in the world.

    In Sadhanamala, Prajnaparamita deity is Paramartha Krama.

  12. Re: Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture

    Here is a good example of the strengths and weaknesses we have these days. Finding this will bring us right back to Cintamani Tara and then there will be some background for her.

    Index Template


    I am going to start this by dead letters of how the subjects seem to arrange themselves, and, over time, edit live links back into the post. I am fairly sure it will fill a large...
  15. Nirakara and Shentong Buddhism, Tara, Sadhanas, Sanskrit culture
