Abusing Initiation and other Buddhist musings

Now a days many receive authentic transmission but abuse it or throw it away like garbage; ask His Holiness the Dalai Lama what he thinks of that. For shame!  The empowerment done with highest wishes and received with promise to fulfill it  by practicing is often one sided!

Gereift, manifest, in Samenform, werfend, vollendet oder kunstfertig durch die Energie des Ereignisses erschöpft.

Todavia, podemos discutir buen karma o mal karma de una forma superficial y tener un beneficio. Domo Geshe Rimpoche the gentle breeze
