  1. Hello!

    Does this imply that samsara is impermanent with the speed of impermanence of 65 moments per finger snap? (mpf - this could be a new unit  B) )

    But then it realy depends how long is the finger snap... And then we are speaking of time. And since the time is an interval between cause and effect, and it does not exist inherently, it is dependent on the observer, the speed of impermanence then also varies from being to being. Which means that the smallest unit (1/64 mps) is not a constant which would exist in the same way for everybody, but it is conditioned by the level of Awareness. So until we develop our Awareness to its highest potential we can't observe this process of one moment giving rise to another moment, since our perception is not mature enough to see it. And every moment in this state is kind of infinite. 

    But it somehow implies, that even this process exists only conventionally, since it is created by the mind which observes it. 


  2. The Firefox add-on China Channel offers internet user outside China to surf the web as if they were in China. For the most part the Chinese web will feel a lot like home. You will, however, begin to notices differences if you start asking Google about sensitive issues (for example Tananmen Square protests, or Pro Tibetan issues).

    But I'm not sure if the add-on will work with proxy connections.

    All the very best,

  3. Thank you dear Rinpoche for your answer. As I remember, there are antidotes to use, when agitation or dullness arise in the mind. In case of agitation is it the best to just leave the the thoughts that they pass and put the mind back on the object of meditation? What about dullness? Is dullness the same as tiredness? What causes dullness and what is the best antidote against it?

     

    All the very best,


  4. Hello everybody,

     

    I suppose everybody did some stupid things in the past which regrets now... But if I understand correctly, as Ontul Rinpoche said, that the heaviness of those action is much lesser than of those done after one took the Refuge vows. So there is a kind of relieve in these words. :-) But I also wonder about the scars that those actions caused, above all those which are seen in the present. How are you confronting these scars?

    I would appreciate your answers very much!
