He is married , do not have courage to announce in public, why?
I covered my eyes and listened, sensitive. (Disrobed!)
I actually enjoy his books sans guru talk. I’m so undisciplined really.
Monas means alone, and I truly hope he gets that from time to time.
But what is truly alone? Is alone a cabin In the desert or the subway?
Because truly alone without a sense of other is alone, and the cabin In the desert can seem crowded in your head.
i thought that was the traditional teaching, that to go to the higher levels you need to be a renunciate, but then thats mahayanna and hiniyanna.
it is still a good thing for dzogchen and vajrayanna, epsecially for leaders.
No, Bill, those who practice diligently have the best shot at enlightenment. Just meditate.
In my view, it depends on the individual. For some people yes, for others no. In any case, Karmapa Thaye Dorje’s following doesn’t seem to have a problem with him not being a monk anymore: http://www.karmapa.org/letter-appreciation-karmapa/
It should be noted that in the first letter, he stated: “I have a strong feeling, deep within my heart, that my decision to marry will have a positive impact not only for me, but also for the lineage.”
In this letter now, he says: “I am also looking forward, for our lineage, to the auspicious arrival of His Holiness the 15th Shamar Rinpoche.”
Keeping in mind that Karmapa Thaye Dorje spent most of the past two years in retreat on his search for the reincarnation of Shamar Rinpoche, and also knowing that the last Karmapa to marry, the 15th Karmapa, was the father of the 12th Shamar Rinpoche, the dots seem to connect…
OTD is a bit worried as his Jamgon disrobe , KTD had his Jamgon and Shamarpa on the way . Not sure how china is going to use their soft power influence.
Are you implying that they “had to” get married???
