Mahmudr in the Geluk and Kagy Traditions

"Maybe we'll start with. Way Your interest in Mahamoud. Way Did that how did that come about? When was that? So since by had? I probably I got interested in Mahamoud per se early in Grad school or perhaps a little bit before that might regional interest in Buddhism back in high school days early in college was mostly in San and I always expected that would be the form of Buddhism than I ended up practicing but the as says avid my then girlfriend now wife and I ended up traveling overland India in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three into nineteen, seventy four, and then ended up at coupon monastery just outside. Katmandu where we studied where Rama Tipton yesterday in London Lumberton. And those famous co concourses which are still ongoing by merrily introductions allom Rim to the stages of the path of course. Llamas, OBA has a particular particularly in those days maybe a little. So I don't know He had a particular teaching style wary if you're at a month course, you could pretty much be sure that half the time was going to be spent in the lower rounds. So he did delight in. Those and Mama yesterday would, of course come in and remind us that we all had put a nature. So it was kind of A. Tough. Cop Nice cop routine and away. And you know he was he was a it was kind of overwhelming for me despite my interest. But as despite my having majored in religion in college and so forth. But. All the complication you know both the details of rim, how Karma works all the different realms, the scholastic arguments back and forth about beginning less mind an emptiness and so forth all of it was incredibly impressive. They were particularly impressive as practitioners as people who lived out what they had studied on what they were teaching but I I also began in in the few the few hours that were that I had hadn't disposal to to read. I think it was probably some poems by Miller wrap up where Branson book by John Blow Fouls, which just had a little bit of discussion. Mahmoud. and. The way the way I took it brightly. At times this reminds me a lot of ZAP it a bid, it short circuits all the detail, all the ritual, all the scholasticism. All those kinds of things that just tells you to realize the nature of your mind. So it appealed to me. Even that? Sort of a a hidden card. Yuba. Lurking inside this is fledgling gay look back. And I kept that in mind when. Year or so you're a half later I ended up graduate school at the University of Wisconsin, studying under shapes up SOPA. who was the first as far as I know the first Betton tenure at American University, certainly the first Tibetan guess. Who was tenured at American University and again to to study with guesses OPA both in the context of the graduate program that Wisconsin and at the deer park would a center as it's now called. Founded. In the mid seventies was too steep yourself in again are a great deal of the the complexity, the ritual, the richness, certainly of of the gaylord actual tradition and once again. The. Reading Mamo drawn decide what kind of balanced helped balance things out for me. So the number of the papers I wrote at Grad School, you know we're on the Mosit- as of India or or soccer punditocracy critiques of Mahamoud, draw various topics like that. So I, you know even in Grad school I I had this interest You know it sometimes said about Chinese practitioners. They're confusions during the day and Taoists. At Night I. Think a part of me that's was during the day and At night. Of course went when I began to discover that was that there was a whole Gaelic tradition of Mambo. I'd been vaguely aware of because it was a little translation that had come out at the library of Tibetan works in archives and. I read through that and So you know after I got Grad school sort of begun by my teaching career. I. Along with rank, of course, bring my dissertation into book form of pretty much everybody wants to do at some point are almost everybody wants to. Buy began to again sort of on the side begin to begin to investigate Gaylord Mabul dress, and so that's at least in terms of the genesis of this I. Guess That's That's how I would I would explain it. In a this dungeon have any. Teachers. Teaching. Mahmoud to you know you know during we went and saw on trump shays league. Once in Chicago he was notoriously late. He was typically drinking soccer when he was typically brilliant. So you know everything we had heard was true. And I think later in the seventies and into the eighties I began to to go occasionally to cognitive teacher but no, I did not have a regular. Teacher and I. I guess it's fair to say that I really never had a sort of regular teacher although in more recent years I've studied some weakening. European. Fortunately for us has his world had ordered in Minneapolis just. Just a few miles from where we live. So now, my my interest I mean I was interested in cognitive because if you're interested in mom will address even from the Gaylord stand going you clearly have to begin researching. Kogyo because. Even, some texts presents the. Is Fine Llamas. Book with. Alex. burs. The gala argue slash kagyu tradition of Mahamoud address. Implies that it's a kind of a sing credit tradition or a synthetic traditional might be a slightly better word So you and it's very clear that the first Panchen Lama who was one of the tutors of style on one of the truly great figures Gael history. He clearly was familiar with cargill literature and and it would seem with some Kogyo practices so. In my in the process of beginning to research, Ma Gala Mambo. Dry Inevitably had to begin reading at least a lot in In the calculator corresponded with scholars argue. Of various sorts Michael. Roy. David Jackson others. Of course the way these things work you you've you dig into you want your insulin gay look initially you dig into the cog you and then you get into the cockpit realize Oh God. All this comes from India and you've got to go back and look again at Sada. High and the other message you gotta look at the time. TRAS. Very, clearly, the textual a kind of sources for Mahmoud to discourse and behind that. Then of course, always these claims that there's a Sutra Mabul dry and so you begin digging around in sutures that may mention the word or may talk about ideas that are similar and so. I ended up going down this kind of rabbit, hole. That led me deeper and deeper back into Indian tradition and it started out as really odd. I'll do a few little translations and right any production suddenly was this Gargantuan projects that threatened to be about just about everything in. Indian. In Tibetan. Buddhism. Because in a weird way Mamo Dra, it was said, could be found everywhere in India, wants about bottles.

"Our third story for today this planet may be in a rough place as we struggled through twenty twenty, but some of the views are amazing on the tenth of May for example for the first time in living memory mount, Everest was visible from Katmandu Nepal, from bar of photographer named Abu Sean Gautam was able to snag a photo of the highest mountain in the world from two hundred kilometers. That's almost one hundred and twenty five miles away to the east, and then spotlit by the setting sun. Check it out. If you've a chance, it's beautiful. Last week from a district in the plains that border India Journalists Chandra to shore a could see right across. Nepal to mounts long tongue on the Chinese border. This amazing view makes sense especially when you consider the precipitous decline in pollution with so many vehicles off of the road, and was so many factories closed, and so on the air over Nepal has been extraordinarily clean hospitals in Katmandu, valley are usually crowded this time of the year with patients suffering respiratory illnesses aggravated by the usually ever-present pollution indust-, but in the past two months hospitals have registered a sharp drop in people seeking treatment for what's called chronic, obstructive, pulmonary disease or copd asthma, chronic bronchitis and allergies. Rajoo pange any a pulmonary care specialist at the. Hospital says many of our COPD. Patients who need regular follow up haven't shown up at all. Because their symptoms have eased some of called into say they don't require oxygen therapy anymore. This lockdown is also by the way led to a drastic drop in petroleum sales across the country. Nepal Oil Corporation or Inno see records show that in the first week of the lockdown alone sales of gas nationwide dropped to six percents, although now as people are slowly coming out of lockdown this as climbed up to forty five percent of the pre lockdown levels. Sushil, Bhatarai of the NFC says, the reduction in diesel consumption definitely played a part in cleaning up the air. How ever despite this sharper deduction in fossil fuel consumption? The air quality index in Katmandu did not improve as much as people were hoping through April and May. One of the big reasons for this lack of further improvement was wildfires that went throughout the country in early April, and the seasonal rains open garbage burning in the valley and pollution haze from across the border, still kept the air quality index at dangerous levels. But all that being said the Hickenlooper of mission remains by far the biggest source of ambient air pollution in Katmandu Valley. According to one study, it accounts for as much as seventy percent of all particulate pollution at the street level, additionally a twenty-seven. By the Napoles Department of Environment, says that diesel vehicles alone contribute thirty four percent of the air pollution and again. This is a temporary lockdown. So that means it's only a temporary reprieve for Napoles ongoing struggle with pollution. If you want a permanent change, you have to make permanent policies that enable it I like the way climate change expert, manjeet, the call phrases it saying what we are experiencing during the lockdown is just a short reprieve. It only went to prove that we can clean up Katmandu if we want to. But for long term results, we need to push cleaner energy options in road transport and the covert nineteen outbreak has provided us the perfect opportunity to electrify transportation and revive economy. However with Napoles economy in deep crisis, the government will be under pressure to look for short term measures to revive the country's financial state, and the temptation to go back to business, as usual will be incredibly strong. The Nepal Times says this is evident. Just look at the traffic jams. That occurred earlier this week after lockdown rules were somewhat relax. When the lockdown is lifted entirely environmentalists are concerned that fear of the virus will keep people away from public transport and public transport. Of course they say is already not as prioritized as it should be. Other officials way in saying the crisis is an opportunity to reform public transit to digitize electrify and restructure the roots. Also add the government can play a more active role by coming up with functional operational guidelines and providing some financial assistance to promote electric vehicles. It would be very unfortunate, not have used this chance. There is a bit of a financial ticking clock here. Tourism has collapsed, and that means smaller amounts of tax, revenue or income, which ups the pressure on the Paul's Finance Ministry to. To find a way to balance the annual budget, which is due later, this may so despite the fact that covid nineteen has proved beyond the shadow of reasonable doubt, or should I say beyond the small cloud of a reasonable doubt that there are real benefits to reducing fossil fuel consumption. Most experts say it's unlikely the government is going to make significant changes to their existing policies. Again the benefits of switching to cleaner energy are largely long term benefits, and the current economic crisis needs immediate short-term solutions. Still who doesn't love a breathtaking view,.
